I know you are trying to be a fan but posts like this don't give the Heat enough credit for what they face on a nightly basis. The Blazers are tough at home and had won 8 straight homes games. The was a hot team and a great home team. The Heat weren't 'taking it easy'. They were getting outplayed. The Blazers making shots and the Heat had no answer for LA. The Heat just dug a little deeper defensively and got a few stops and LeBron took over to get them the win.
They were by no means taking it easy. I think what you saw tonight was a group of role players on Miami that were shell shocked by crowd and the hostility of the arena. And as a result the big 3 had to win the game by themselves and that they did. Trust me...the Celts and Lakers would have lost this game tonight.
We forget that teams treat games against us as if they in the finals so they go all out. You could see tho after portland gave us there best and we made it thru that the rest of the players besides LA gave up.
Taking every teams best shot every night especially on the road will make us all that tougher down the road and into the playoffs. :celebrate:
