Heat Having Issues Matching Up In Transition Too

The Miami Heat have hit too many jump shots for this to matter yet, but in the rare instances where they’ve missed, they’ve struggled to match up with the Thunder in transition. The Heat’s decision to go with some odd defensive matchups has opened up their transition offense, but in the process, it’s hurt their transition defense. The Thunder have begun to get good shots on the break in this second quarter, mostly because the Heat have taken too long to find their men.

It now becomes extremely important for the Thunder to force the Heat to shoot jumpers and contest those shots well. Missed Heat jumpers will spur a Thunder comeback, but the Thunder have to force them.
