How concerning is this for the Heat?  I have a bad feeling.

They might "need" to, but they aren't going to. June 1 is locked in as the start date.

I don't think it will matter if the "need" to or not. I have a feeling this Miami/Boston series will go to 7 games.

Well, it definitely won't be a sweep. You might be right about it going 7. Or wrong. I'll let you know in a few days!

Excellent Explosion and Agility. The shooting prowess was impressive and unexpected .

He's worth a flyer in the 2nd round.  Hard to evaluate his shooting in an open gym though.

Or just don't draft him and work out a 2 way.

Vincent being out for G5 is a big loss for Miami.

Yeah Herro (starting PG) and Vincent (backup PG) leaves a bit of a hole. Lowry is going to have to play more serious minutes.

Well, losing Herro actually filled in a hole.

Losing Herro didn't make the rest of the team start actually making their threes. Vincent has stepped up, though. At the same time Strus has faded a bit.

When the ball doesn't stop, shots become more open.  And players tend to knock down open shots at a higher clip.

If that video is showing off his mobility, that's not a great sign.

But I'd definitely draft him in the 2nd round. He could be a good fit on a team like GSW who could use a big.

Jimmy almost averaged a triple double in the finals in 2020. The Heat's problem in 2020 was Bam got injured.

Same problem for the most part right now. Injuries catching up with the Heat, and the Celtics are starting to hit some shots.

Thank you. My memory is obviously flawed.

Tatum has been the best player on the floor the last two games and yes, guys are making shots.  if they're going to get 45 pts from White and Smart it's really difficult to beat them.  The offensive rebounds, which led to many of these open threes is what killed Miami yesterday along with turnovers.  They need to flip those stats Saturday.   Then it's about whether Miami needs Jimmy to have a huge offensive game or can the Heat go lights out from distance like G3?  Boston's best is better than Miami's best.  Hopefully Miami puts it all together and Boston melts down.

Jimbo better get the job done.  He talks a lot of talk.  Would hate to see it come back to bite him.

He might want to get a ring before he starts talking the way he does.

Jimmy is due to have a big game but it might not be enough.  Although, if I'm Boston I dunno why they wouldn't sag on him a bit.  Especially if a big switches on him.  He's not particularly comfortable shooting the triple and hasn't shot it well in this series.  Of course vs the Bucks he seemed to make everything.

Diaspointing start for Miami.  Boston is scoring too easily.
