Any time a team plays the Warriors they are looking to prove something, even in a loss. Miami has a lot to prove to me even though they have a good record.
Golden State certainly has nothing to prove but this is a game they should get as they try and make some history.
The Heat are 1-1 on their current Western road trip. The competition definitely jumps up a notch in this one with the Warriors laying waste to most foes on their schedule.
However, this is a veteran led group that should have the savvy to stay within themselves and not be intimidated. Wade and Bosh will need to play smart and efficient games if they are going to have a shot to win.
I love the combo of Wade and Bosh especially with Hassan Whiteside providing muscle inside.
This team will really take off when Goran Dragon finds himself with this group. He is coming off a strong game and they will need him if Golden State is at full strength.
Remember when Luol Deng used to be a player teams feared. He is pretty much an afterthought in Miami.
Golden State Warriors
The Warriors have rattled off six wins since they suffered just their second loss of the season against Dallas. This team certainly looks capable of putting together the best regular season in NBA history.
They are fun to watch too.
With Steph Curry trying to ward off injuries I was wondering if we might not see the kinds of things we did when he dazzled us during the first month of the season.
He scored 38 points with 11 assists in their last win so maybe those fears were unfounded.
One part of the Warriors story not being shared was that until just recently they were winning, error dominating even without Harrison Barnes, a starter on last year’s title team and maybe their best defensive player.
A pretty good mid-season reinforcement.
Golden State is in a class all itself this season and I think they love these kinds of battles that garner a little extra attention to keep their fire burning.
The line is big but they are more than capable of rolling up a good Miami team.
