The Miami Heat have gotten off to a slow start. They're 4-3, and have a couple of embarrassing losses at the hands of the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics. Miami is already three games behind the 7-0 Indiana Pacers.
But we here at Heat Rising have been stressing for Miami fans not to panic. If you didn't listen to us and are a little freaked out, perhaps one of the most respected voices in the NBA, Doc Rivers, can ease your concerns.
It's an interesting comment from Rivers, considering the play of teams like the Pacers and San Antonio Spurs.
But Doc seems to understand that the Heat, even though they are struggling, at their best are still nearly impossible to beat and remain the favorites to win it all.
