Injuries and ineffectiveness have forced the Heat to make some changes to their offensive strategies. We’ve seen two of them implemented over the past few games.
First, Justise Winslow is playing more of a facilitating role for the first time in his NBA career. He’s not necessarily running the offense from start to finish, but he is bringing the ball up the court promptly.
The second change is what can be found in the final word in the previous sentence: promptly. The Heat, often a slow-paced team, are changing up tempo a bit. They’re not necessarily running or getting out on the fast break, but they are making an effort to get into their sets quicker than they have in the past.
