    Default Miami's offensive efficiency

    Miami's Top 5 scorers are all scoring at or above 50% FG.

    http://www.basketball-reference.com/teams/MIA/2014.html

    It's incredible.

    It seems like Lebron and Wade's strive for efficiency has translated to the rest of the team.

    Not only that, but Chalmers, their 6th most prolific scorer this season, has a TS% of nearly 64% thanks to his extraordinarily high 3FG%.

    Their 3-point shooting ability is just silly at this point.

    Lebron, Allen, Chalmers, Cole, Battier, Lewis, Beasley... heck even Bosh.

    This team is crazy.

    Offense hasn't been their problem that's for sure. Defense has been pretty bad though.

    Yes, this team is truly scary. They just need to improve their defense and rebounding.

    They already had the highest eFG% in the league history last year. This year may take it over the top.

    If you're a Miami fan, I can imagine how maddening it is to see them play such crappy defense and be such a poor rebounding team.

    The defense is simply on vacation, but it's still there somewhere. The rebounding is just mind boggling. There's absolutely no excuse for them being the 3rd worst in the league.

    Just like last year, it's a question of if/when they can put it all together. Then you'll see another 20+ game win streak.

    Oden, fingers crossed. At this point I don't even mind not seeing him til the playoffs.

    Just the thought (unlikely) of him coming out and sonning Hibbert on the boards in the playoffs...

    For Lebron to have a better season than before he has to figure out how to get 25ppg while shooting close to 60%. That's some high ass standard dude put on himself.

    What makes this so impressive is the fact that they have no good big men who usually shoot over 50%. Team is built on perimeter players.

    By the end of the season, James is averaging 25 ppg on 60/40/80 shooting. That's ridiculous.

    They are an incredible offensive team for the 2nd year in a row. Here's a post from RealGM:

    122.8 ORTG tonight, up to 115.1 on the season (or ~114 by BBR's season page), which should be just over a +10 offense through 9 games, again, picking up right where they left off in the last half of the 2013 season.

    Now consider the following:

    -Miami is dead last ALL TIME in ORB% through 7 games (18.5%), and through 8 games are EVEN LOWER at 18.2%

    -Miami is #1 ALL TIME in eFG% through 7 games (57.9%) and through 8 games are now at 58.9%. 2013 Miami is #2 all time.

    -Their TOV% and FTR are middling

    I think they have a serious shot at the ORTG record (87 Lakers: 115.6), the ORTG differential record (04 Mavs: +9.2), AND the highest Z-score for an offense (07 Suns: +2.8) this season.
