Enemy Chatter: Norris Cole is Miami’s version of Rondo

Chatter

I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Miami.

I hope you have been paying attention to previous posts so last night should not have come as a surprise.  Norris Cole is turning out to be Miami’s very own, dare I say it, Rajon Rondo.  The quick, crafty, and clutch Cole had 14 of his 20 points in the 4th quarter including 2 key jumpers to keep the Heat up 5 in the final minutes.

Almost everything went right for the Heat in this one.  Wade impressed with 4 blocks, LeBron led the team in scoring, Bosh had double figures in rebounding, and the Big 3 combined for 68 points.

Will Norris Cole be in the starting lineup in the Heat’s next game?

All U Can Heat

I'll admit that this post is pretty weak. I expected a lot more from the Heat bloggers. 

As of 11 am, SB Nation's Heat blog had no game recap. And ESPN's Heat Index is a shell of itself. I didn't think ESPN was capable of toning down anything.

There also didn't appear to be much criticism of the Heat for nearly blowing a 20 point second half lead. Then again, maybe they stopped watching.

    c’s had the same problem. they close-out teams early and blow big leads. maybe pierce would have made a difference last night? either way it’s going to take a miracle to grind out the season.

    t’s the lack of depth that’s really killing them. Ainge should have never let go of Perkins.

    Ok man, we get it. He shouldn’t have traded Perk. Can we move on from it now?

    Cole has done more in one game than Avery Bradley has done in a year.

    Were we not going with Semi Erden as our starting center last year?
