Miami Heat This Season
With Bosh, James, Wade on the Floor
The Heat entered Sunday shooting 38.7 percent in the half-court, ranked 27th in the NBA. Against the Nets, they shot better than 50 percent in the half-court (51.6) for the first time this season, outscoring New Jersey, 92-75.
Bosh, James and Wade were a combined 12-of-15 from the floor within six feet of the basket. Forty-four of their 55 points came from within six feet of the basket or at the foul line.
While it’s just four games, the Heat are showing a propensity to run more. Last season Miami had an NBA-low 721 plays in transition, which equated to 8.8 per game. In four games this season, Miami is averaging 13.0 transition plays and 14.8 points per game.
