The Miami Heat is 32-20 having lost the last 3 matches against one against the Celtics where we lost by more than 20 points and two losses against the Raptors, one being by triple overtime. We went from being first in the east to third place. So, what’s going on with the heat? Why the sudden “collapse”? Let’s see.
Kyle Lowry – Lowry has missed all three games due to personal reasons. When he’s not on the floor we miss that floor generator, leaving Jimmy and Tyler to do point guard duties.
Robinson Struggles – Duncan Robinson has been struggling greatly in the last games, Duncan is averaging 5 points per game with a total of 16 points in the last 3 games. When Duncan is not finding his shot, the heat struggles greatly, since Duncan is only good at shooting nothing else, he becomes a liability on the floor, if his shots are not falling.
Back-to-Back Road games– The last two games have been back-to-back and both on the road. At the Celtics game at the TD Garden, three of our four best defenders were out, Lowry, Butler, and PJ Tucker. This marks the tempo for the game, when you have Duncan Robinson, Max Strus, and Tyler Herro defending the likes of Jaylen Brown and Jason Tatum is always going to turn bad for us. Those games being back-to-back can be strenuous on players.
