I think this is the game when we should start J.R.Smith instead of Fields and keep him on the floor whenever Wade is in.
Fields is too slow and Wade always makes him his little bitch. (like always,Wade averages 28 points when playing against Fields).
Also Fields isn't a good offensive player so Wade can concentrate on help defense more and he'll be less tired for his offensive duties.
On the other hand J.R.Smith is much quicker than Fields,we can say his athleticism is almost on Wade's level.
I think he's a solid defender when he tries (and trust me,he will) while he's much better offensive player than Fields and Wade would really need to guard him.
Coincidentally J.R.Smith always shits on the Heat,he averages 20.1 points per game against them
I don't think Melo will cancel out LeBron. I think he would if he was healthy but obviously he isn't so I see another bad shooting night for him.
