After starting the season off with an impressive road victory over the "improved" Orlando Magic, the Heat were dealt a blow in the second half of their second game, when Kemba Walker and the Charlotte Hornets went on a 47-19 run on their way to a six-point victory.
Tonight, the Heat will host the San Antonio Spurs, a team that somehow looks even better after having lost future first-ballot Hall-of-Famer Tim Duncan. I'm reminded of what happened in San Antonio after they lost David Robinson over a dozen years ago - the Spurs haven't had a losing record in almost two decades.
But that's all beside the point, the Heat will look to get back on the right track against these Spurs, who for this season boast a 3-0 record to the Heat's 1-1. Can Hassan Whiteside control the boards and help Miami stretch out the Spurs' defense with thread-the-needle passes? Can Goran Dragic and Tyler Johnson continue to dictate a quicker-pace of play than the Spurs are comfortable with? Sound off below!
