the wolves murdered them in rebounding 53 to 24 ! huge differential right there and still lost the game by 11.. you guys know games where the losing team doubled the winning teams total rebound?
haslem is a beast lol 18 mins 0points 0rebounds 0blocks 0steal 1ast 3fouls
haha this guy gives you the exact number 106 wins to 3 losses lol.
thanks.. that's just weird.. to go along with 14 blocks by the heat and only 1 by wolves
Watched the entire second half of this one and the Heat literally did not miss very many shots. Not to mention, while the Timberwolves got quite a few second shot attempts, the Heat did a solid job of those not converting in second chance points.
Miami's rebounding is a concern, think rebounding along with defense tend to be a key for most title teams. In this one, Miami found ways around it by forcing turnovers and hitting 9 more three pointers (many of them coming off assists from LeBron James). The Heat built up a 19 point lead with about 7 to go.
The Wolves may have owned the glass, but the Heat played much better defense and executed their offense in the 2nd half at a way more successful rate than their opponents. Was a shame that Rubio did not play as I believe he could have made a difference in this one. Crazy game, not surprised that so few teams have won when outrebounded by such a huge margin. Miami did have a bit of luck on their side and I think need to learn from this.
They Heat didn't miss much, and they didn't match the physical play down low. But they didn't have to, they got turnovers, and played thier game. Plus doesn't hurt that Wade was getting some questionable calls. I forgot how much of a flopper he can be. But regardless, they executed where and when it mattered. But dissapointing that a team can dominate the boards and not get a W, Wolves just couldn't score.
