The Miami Heat had their most explosive offensive night of the season on Wednesday night. Scoring nearly 140 points on the night to blow the doors off of the Memphis Grizzlies, though they would still be without star guard, Ja Morant, the Miami Heat continued their offensive surge from the last couple of games.
With all five starters and two bench players going for double figures in the scoring column for the Heat, they would get extreme offensive balance from their lineup, something almost unseen from them at times of the season.
And en route to shooting nearly 60 percent from the field and 45 percent from three-point territory, the Miami Heat absolutely torched the opponents on Wednesday. For a Miami Heat team that hasn’t been shooting the ball well all season, this is certainly a welcomed sight.
The Miami Heat had their most explosive offensive game of the year Wednesday. And by no coincidence, as they’ve been trending in the right direction there.
However and though nobody could’ve predicted this, it’s both ironic and not that shocking considering how poorly they shot it coming out of the All-Star break. Again and though their shooting had been bad all year, the shooting out of the All-Star break had sunken below the basement for this Heat team.
A nice recovery it seems, situations like these can often go in polar opposite directions swiftly. Hopefully, that is the case for the Heat on a more permanent basis, as it would allow them to do what they call “peaking at the right time” in the world of sports.
Coming off of two great victories against the Utah Jazz and the Memphis Grizzlies at home, the Miami will look to continue posting wins as they go on the road to face the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons in a back-to-back set of games on Saturday and Sunday.
And if they can continue the offensive surge as well as get back to playing the Miami Heat defense that they are known for, though they’ve had some slippage on that side with the recent offensive increase, they’ll be just fine entering the postseason.
