At 5-4, Heat know their bashers are rejoicing
“Look up the definition of a studio gangster,” Heat forward Udonis Haslem said, making a reference to someone who, delicately put, appears to be tougher than they really are. “Nobody pays them dudes no mind, man. I’m here to play basketball. … They can say what they want to say. It’s just basketball. For us, this team is built and we’re not going to be at our best right now. We understand that.”
Bosh has watched most of Toronto’s games so far this season, and has not enjoyed seeing his old team get off to an awful start. The Raptors took a 1-7 record into Friday’s matchup in Orlando.
Since the Heat have their own issues to deal with, don’t look for him to be sympathetic Saturday night.
“There’s no anxiousness for tomorrow,” Bosh said. “The sky never falls. It’s too pretty out there.”
OK, the sky may not fall, but the Heat landscape may change a bit.
Spoelstra said he’s considering lineup changes, and given that center Joel Anthony didn’t start the second half against the Celtics, that would suggest either Zydrunas Ilgauskas or Jamaal Magloire may be in line for a new role soon.
“We’re not there right now,” Spoelstra said, reiterating his message from Thursday night. “We will be.”
Optimists would say Miami’s four losses have come against teams that have dropped a combined five games _ entering Friday, Boston was 7-2, New Orleans 7-0 and Utah 5-3 _ and that the Heat had an opportunity in each of those defeats. Pessimists would say the union of James, Wade and Bosh isn’t working and Miami lacks what it takes to beat elite teams.
“We knew it was going to be a challenge,” James said. “I knew it wouldn’t just be a bed of roses stepping into this situation. But I came here for the challenge.”
