Parting Shot: Checking Heat's temperature
By Michael Wallace
Keep at least one thing in mind about the Miami Heat: Perspective is key.
While it's easy to overreact to every breakdown during Tuesday's collapse in a 111-106 overtime loss at Golden State, the most important thing LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh took out of that demoralizing setback was the team's chartered flight to Los Angeles for Wednesday's matchup with the Clippers.
The schedule won't allow the Heat to sulk too long. If you're a Heat fan, neither should you.
After taking inventory of Miami's issues against the Warriors and weighing them against the backdrop of Wade's return from a foot injury, it's time to offer a big-picture parting shot on where the Heat stand as they finish up this five-game trip against the Clippers and Denver Nuggets.
