The Miami Heat were able to get back to .500 on Monday night after they beat the Phoenix Suns. That’s great news.

On the other hand though, the not-so-great news is the fact that they only managed to hover there for a day or so, as they would fall back to one game under .500 by losing to Toronto on Wednesday night.

Here’s the thing though. While falling back below even isn’t the greatest thing in the world, that defeat shouldn’t invoke the feelings that most of the seven defeats prior should.

The Miami Heat got beat on Wednesday. As stated—this is true.

However, they didn’t beat themselves. What that means is that in most of their losses prior to Wednesday night’s defeat, they had a huge part in them not being able to leave the game successful with a victory.

That was not the case Wednesday.
