This team is so beyond frustrating. TL and DW carrying two guys worth $500M on their backs.

Don't let up. Don't let the TO work. A little run to get to single digit is great but it's time to keep the heat on

Smart post-ups and Jaylen simply needs to be an alpha here. Screw the dribbling fears, we need you to be the best scorer on the court Jaylen—-right here, right now.

They need to run and maybe Tatum can get some above the break 3’s. Or take him out and let him go get a painkiller shot. The guy can’t move

This has been a really awful performance, but they’ve been super unlucky with the Tatum injury, above average shooting by the Heat, and losing the ball out of bounds in commotion after 3 or 4 great defensive efforts.

Tatum on one foot but Jaylen coming up small is depressing. It's his responsibility to pick up the slack here and he can't.
Makes the $260M or whatever something you have to do, but man. I love the guy but he can't dribble. Fine for the regular season though.

I don’t see Tatum moving badly out there. They’re not even attempting to hide him on D and he’s still trying to break people down on the dribble. Without a doubt he rolled that ankle and that can affect him but it’s not like he’s not able to move normally enough out there. If he’s hurt as bad as they’re saying then we shouldn’t be letting him be switched into Butler and we aren’t even trying to stop that

Great call on the Smart post ups. The guy is fucking money on the block, take advantage of that

Tatum can still shoot, they need to use him like Grant rest of way.

Brogdon may need to play, they simply need more creation

Time to lock in. Stop giving up threes. Make Miami shoot in traffic. Move the ball and attack with as little dribbling as possible. Try to get a foul on Bam.

At the game so apologies if the commentators covered it…
Tatum can barely move. Surprised he’s playing. Whole team came out with 5 min left at halftime, Tatum came out with 2 seconds left as they whistled and hadn’t moved much since.

He's not moving badly, but he's not moving as much nor making sharp cuts. He's definitely compromised.

I was with you guys in the first half but this half, thus far, hes not moving well. He’s noticeable limping and not able to turn it up.

Yeah, this is just it, he can't make that double move he's prone to make at the top of the key to drive hard to the bucket. If he has that at even average output, this game is so different in how the Heat have to scheme it. Wasn't the best on the zone but still, make them expose it earlier.
