The Miami Heat Are 1 for 14 in Last Second Shots to Win or Tie Games

by Robert Littal | Posted on Saturday, March 5th, 2011

As you have probably gathered that is the worst in the league.

One thing to remember it is easy to recall the game winning shots, but the reality is all teams have a low percentage in this category for the most part.

What is interesting about the Heat is you wouldn’t think they would be so bad for a couple of reasons. They have two of the five best players in the league in Lebron and Wade, so it is harder for defenses to double team both of them.

Secondly, because they have Lebron and Wade that normally leaves a wide open teammate somewhere on the floor in the last second situations.

The Heat are still a very good team, at worst they will the #3 seed in the East, but the question begs when they get in the playoffs and the games are close in the 4th quarter, will doubt start to creep in?

One thing we do know is they aren’t serving any coffee in the Heat locker room.

Because coffee is for closers.

N…W…O…

    Great stat find. All they do is beat up on inferior opponents in the NBA but against top notch foes the numbers dont like 14-16 against over .500 teams, 1-7 against the leagues top 6. 5-12 in games decided by 5 points.

    The heat's problem is coaching, the coach they have doesn't know how to use those three players. Give this team to Phil Jackson, Doc Rivers, Greg Popovitch, and they will win 70. It's easy blaming the three stars because of how they made a circus after they signed with the Heat, but the problem is coaching. There is no way you loose a game after you up by 24 with these 3 guys on the team.

  3. Hello there, I found your site by the use of Google whilst looking for a similar matter, your web site got here up, it seems good. I’ve bookmarked it in my google bookmarks.

  4. Great info and straight to the point. I don’t know if this is actually the best place to ask but do you people have any thoughts on where to get some professional writers? Thx :)
