Summing up the Heat: The bad, the bad and the ugly--South Florida Sun Sentinel
-- After his point guards. Mario Chalmers and Norris Cole, shot a combined 0 for 9, Spoelstra was asked exactly what he is seeking at the position, going more often now without a true point guard on the floor.
"It is as clear as it can be: the front line of our defense, making an impact on the ball, trying to keep that ball out of the paint, guiding it into the rest of our help defense and setting the tone," he said.
"Offensively, to get us organized into offense efficiently without turning the ball over, understanding time-score situation, making those type of reads and then being aggressive looking for opportunities to score the way those guys do it: Rio with his shooting and ability to put the ball on the floor and Norris being aggressive."
Friday, it was more like none of the above.
