good win against the heat, but still have a couple of tough tests ahead of us in the next few days. really hope we can continue our streak against them.
QFT. The extra facilitating ability will hopefully give him some relief come playoff time..but tbh, I really need McHale to be the one to address/focus on this
. It's simple. When our normal offense isn't flowing and we have to buckle down and execute in the halfcourt, we need a more structured offensive approach. You can't just put Harden on a island with top defenders for all of the critical possessions and expect him to carry the team. There are only a few guys in the league that will succeed in that scenario imo. (your KDs, Brons of the world)
