Figuring out the Miami Heat is a difficult proposition.
Calling their 2016-17 effort a tale of two extremes could be promoting the roller-coaster ride. Based on NBA Math’s rolling team ratings, they spent one day working since the league’s worst and best squad, based on information in the previous 20 games in each circumstance. Head coach Erik Spoelstra showed off his training acumen yet again using a midseason change to a drive-and-kick offense, and his team reaped the rewards to the point that it nearly vaulted back into the Eastern Conference playoffs.
At what degree can we expect the group to play, although it should assuredly make the postseason this time round ? After the All-Star break, the Heat posted a 5.6 net evaluation, which left them trailing just the Golden State Warriors (11.0). Throughout their final 15 contests, that number dipped into some more reasonable 3.1.
Can they maintain that number? They retained most of their players and added Kelly Olynyk into the fold, but the scouting report will be out on their new offensive fashion.
Additional regression ought to be anticipated, although the level at which Miami played the concluding section of last season still ought to scare bettors off.
