|ESPN.com: Miami Heat Index||[Print without images]|
Overall after running through all of these plays, what's obvious is exactly what Dwyane Wade said. The Heat just need to stop putting themselves in these situations. Preferably not the way they did Tuesday against the Blazers by getting beat by nine, but by maybe being on the high end.
When you have this many crunch time opportunities, it also means you have a lot of chances to fail.
Seven of these situations came with the Heat down three, which means they need to make basketball's most difficult shot with the defense knowing they have to take it. That's a tough situation. I honestly don't think the Heat have done that poor a job in crunch time. They've run some good plays, got good looks for their best players but they just haven't scored.
