HEAT Have Confidence in Teammates
Dwyane Wade was selected to run the offense in the closing minutes. Then he passed. And he passed again. And he passed yet again.
This is the way the Heat have decided they are going to play, even if it doesn’t fit the mold that observers who want to see the stars decide the outcome may prefer.
Last week this strategy in Utah did not work when LeBron James, as was discussed at some length, put the last shot in Udonis Haslem’s hands. He missed, the Heat lost. Wednesday Haslem didn’t miss, making two big hoops in the final 70 seconds off feeds from Wade, and the Heat beat the Hawks, 89-86.
“A lot of people have a lot of things to say,” Wade said. “But we have confidence in our teammates.”
