Miami HEAT Focusing on Defense
The Heat focused on its defense during Friday’s practice and will do so again this week. Though it has improved considerably since the beginning of the season, the Heat’s defense is still ranked among the bottom third of NBA teams (22nd). The Heat was allowing 99.7 points per game entering Saturday’s game against the Cavaliers.
“The consistency on the defensive side of the floor has to get better,” Spoelstra said.
