Ray Allen may be dropping game winning three-pointers for the Heat, but his defense has been awful. His lack of lateral movement was exposed last night by Jamal Crawford. ESPN’s True Hoop analyzed the Heat’s drop in defensive productivity (ranked 25th in the league). Here’s reason #3: 3. The Heat have fallen apart defensively with Ray Allen on the court. When Allen has been on the floor this season, the Heat have surrendered 109.0 points per 100 possessions. When Allen’s on the bench? 97.7 points per 100 possessions, or right about where they were last season. An 11-point disparity is a signal to dig deeper. Why does the Heat’s defense fall apart when Allen takes the floor? First, and probably most important, he’s new. Acclimating himself with the Heat’s system will take time (just ask Bosh or Battier). Secondly, Allen will never be mistaken for Tony Allen out there as a stopper. It has spelled trouble when Allen is asked to keep up with point guards in the second unit (game film sh...

Chris Bosh is still making weirdly hilarious faces (GIF)

Thanks to @cjzero for the GIF. Heat forward Chris Bosh is the human version of a surprised ostrich or a sly velociraptor, depending on your interpretation.  Often times he makes odd, yet hilarious faces like the one you see above, and it’s OK to laugh at him and his wacky antics, because if we didn’t, Bosh might stop making said funny faces, and then where would we be? Living...

Eric Bledsoe Welcomes Dwyane Wade To The Block Party

There are so many great things about this play.  First Eric hustles back when most players would just let a two on none happen. Not Eric, he comes running in and gets up higher than Dwyane Wade for the block. Great play for a young player that a lot of writers are high on.  I am a little surprised Dwyane Wade didn't call Bledsoe dirty or cheap after that block like he usually...

Heat-Nuggets Preview
