What To Watch For

Defending Kemba
The Heat have had some difficulty guarding point guards recently. And Kemba Walker has been one of the culprits. He’s been on a tear and he scorched Miami last game. Can the Heat make the necessary adjustments to limit Kemba? I’m not sure. Walker is very much a player that if he’s hitting, he’s difficult to stop because he can create his own space. But that is what we are watching for. Maybe Winslow can have a run at him.
