Miami Heat Clamp Down in Defensive Film Room

The Miami Heat went 45 minutes over their usual practice time to study up on defensive game film, according to a Sun Sentinel report.

This comes after two-straight losses by the team, a 106-103 loss in Houston and a 111-87 disaster in San Antonio. Miami has given up more than 100 points in three-straight games, ranking the team No. 27 in points allowed per possession during that stretch.

“We weren’t in our right spots,” Bosh said in the report. “Our defense is predicated on everyone being on the same page. We’re just not on the same page right now, one through five. Some guys are in the correct position. Some aren’t. Just our basic fundamentals, we’re not executing. We have to get back to doing that.”

In the last three games, the Heat gave up 10 more points per 100 possessions than they have the entire regular season, according to NBA.com statistics.
