Heat vs Timberwolves: Where Defense Heals All Wounds
Tuesday night at the American Airlines Arena the Minnesota Timberwolves showed why they are among the best rebounding teams in the NBA.
The Miami Heat also showed that their defense is stifling enough to erase almost any flaw they have.
The two story lines of the game became clear early on as Kevin Love grabbed rebound after rebound on both ends of the court while the Heat stole the ball and forced the Timberwolves into committing turnovers.
These two dynamics helped the game remain close throughout the second half even as Love was able to get both Chris Bosh and Udonis Haslem in foul trouble.
At one point Love’s play was frustrating enough to have a technical foul be called on Haslem.
Slowly though, the adjustments Miami has made to address the lax defense which has cost them games before began to pay off in two areas.
One area was that Joel Anthony made his defensive presence known after coming into the game due to Bosh’s foul trouble.
The other area was the play between JJ Barea and the man he inspired the Heat to draft in 2011, Norris Cole.
