The Miami Heat are currently in the process of disposing of the Milwaukee Bucks on the road in the fourth quarter. After a 4-3 start to the season so far, it’s been a while since the Heat have looked like the defending NBA Champions.

Tonight, they certainly are.

One of the players that has made a difference once again is everyone’s favorite tatted-up player, Chris ‘Birdma’ Andersen. He’s played 19 minutes total so far in this one, and he’s made his presence known.

First, in the second half, he made a tremendous block as the Bucks were trying to get the ball into the low post. Lesson here, don’t bring that anywhere near Birdman:

As good as that one was, his play on the other end on offense may have been even better.

Off a missed three-pointer from Mario Chalmers, Birdman was right there using the court awareness for the put back:

Like him or not, the man is the personification of how much a bench player means to a basketball team.
