Kevin Garnett, Roaming Around, Guarding Nobody, Guarding Everybody

The Miami Heat have a bit of an issue: Their supporting cast is so poor that the Boston Celtics are basically using Kevin Garnett as a designated double-teamer whenever Dwyane Wade or LeBron James catch the ball inside the 3-point line. The Heat big men don’t have the skill to make Garnett pay, and it has stalled Miami’s offense.

The Heat’s best counter here is to rely on more quick-hitting plays. Maybe send a cross-screen Wade's way and have him catch the ball on the move in the paint. Alternatively, some misdirection to free a shooter for a jumper on the weakside could work as well.
