Being down 0-3 in their opening round series to the Milwaukee Bucks, the Miami Heat can’t afford to be cute any longer. It’s now time to throw it all, anything, and everything you have at the wall to see if something sticks.

At this point, what could it hurt? If you are confused by the sentiment, here’s what it means.

Late in Game 3 of this series, the Miami Heat and Coach Spoelstra decided to give Nemanja Bjelica a look. He proceeded to come in and first off, put up shots, but in that effort, hit some.

It’s important to break that down into two separate categories here, as the Miami Heat have not only failed to gain a ton of quality looks in this series thus far, but it seems like a struggle to get any looks at all sometimes. For Belly though, he was an instant cannon upon entering the game.

The Miami Heat are down 0-3 in their opening round series of the NBA Playoffs. Now is the time to throw it all at the wall to see if something sticks.

In 18 minutes of action down the stretch, he finished with 14 points, four rebounds, and two helpers, also going 4-6 from the field and 3-5 from deep. His quick 14 were the third highest total on the team on Thursday, behind Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo, but he was their best option from deep, by far.

If they don’t have anyone capable of making the opposition pay from the outside, anything on the inside will be that much tougher and they’re already making it tough enough in the middle already. It isn’t just with Bjelica though.

Coach Spo can’t be afraid to go to some of the other shooters on his bench if the team struggles out of the gate in Saturday’s game, one that could be the final game of the year if the Miami Heat fail to get a win. Not that this will certainly bring them back or even keep them in that game, but don’t go down without looking as if though you gave it all you had.

Again, the offense was struggling and Belly hit shots immediately when given the looks. That’s what they’ve been missing all series long, somebody…anybody to hit a timely shot.

Saturday would be as good as time as any to empty the clip, as they say, because hey… it might be your last time for a while. You always have to shoot your shot.
