Water Works in Miami

What a great day to be a Heat Hater! Miami and its trio of ball stars failed to win again today, suffering their fourth straight loss in a 87-86 defeat to the Chicago Bulls. Again, the Heat seem to have trouble figuring out who is going to be da man in crunch time. Is it Lebron? Is it Dwyane? It's definitely not Sir Flopalottapuss Chris Bosh, and at this point, no one really touches the ball anymore besides these three anyways so there is no point in anyone else even trying to step up. Erik Spolestra reported that multiple players were crying in the locker room after the game, however I am pretty sure this has everything to do with the post-game spread being subpar and nothing to do with the teams increasing lackluster performances. They have surrendered huge leads in the past week to the Orlando Magic and New York Knicks and there seems to be no clear solution in sight. The league seems to have started to figure out El Heat: If you take away their transition game and force them into half-court sets where they often have to resign to jump shots because of their lack of height, they can be beaten. Also, Derrick Rose continues to look like a man possessed scoring 27 points on over 50% shooting and locking down 5 assists as well. Should make for a super duper fun last trimester of the season.
