Lessons learned from Charlotte Bobcats’ near-miss victory in Miami
 
If the ball finds center Al Jefferson’s hands (16 points, 13 rebounds) or point guard Kemba Walker (27 points) is driving at least as much as he takes jump shots, this is a far better offense. The Bobcats matched the Heat in points in the paint at 38 and took three more free throws than the Heat. Those factors kept the Bobcats competitive.

Go for it: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra seemed taken aback in the post-game news conference at reporters’ inferences that Miami was flat Sunday. Spoelstra said this was about how much the Bobcats have improved.

“Charlotte put us in that position,” Spoelstra said. “They played aggressively, they played well, they moved the ball, they made shots.”

Well we obviously didn't learn any lessons because we let a 4th quarter lead get away at Dallas last night.

i know its painful to see but the future is brighter for this team.. i still think they make the playoffs and that would boost the confidence of this young squad... and the veteran al jefferson is a nice leader to have

Miami and Dallas were both games that we could have won. We're still dealing with inconsistency but our guys are playing overall on such a high level as compared to previous seasons that at least for me, it's exciting to watch them play. If we can hover around .500 perhaps we'll have a chance to squeak into the playoffs. If not this year then definitely next year. Unless management does their usual thing and let go of half our team so we will once again be a "young" team.
