What's wrong with the Miami Heat?

What's wrong with the Miami Heat? That's the question that everyone is asking these days. The answer is simple. Time. Time is this teams best friend. It's November and championships are won in June?

There are a lot of people who are disappointed with the start for this team but it's not how you start but how you finish. There are somethings that need to be done different and I am sure they will be by the all star break. This team can have and probably will have 20 losses this season and still finish 60-22. The NBA season is s marathon and these guys will figure it out.

The second game against the Magic was actually a pretty good game for the heat. They played with great intensity and competed the entire game. If the heat bring the same intensity every night they will beat 95% of the teams in the league. The Magic were at home and played as hard as I have seen them play since the overtime win against Cleveland in the Eastern conference finals and the Heat were right there in the game.

What I think the Heat will get from the past three games is the need to speed up the tempo. Offensive rebounds have hurt them in a number of games but they have to use the athleticism of Lebron and Wade as an advantage.

I am going to predict that once the Heat figure things out they will break the consecutive games streak. When they go on a 5 game winning streak they will take that out to 20+ games.
