The Miami Heat are at home tonight in Miami as they seek their 27th win of the season against the visiting New Orleans Pelicans in a Western Conference showdown.
Throughout the first half, though, it hasn’t been as easy for the two-time defending champion Heat as some would have thought against the 15-win Pelicans.
But that still doesn’t mean that they’re not doing what they usually do, especially LeBron James and Dwyane Wade.
Early on in the first half, Wade was coming down with the ball on a fast break and was making his way through the defense and toward the hoop for what might have been the easy two points.
Instead, Wade made that usual glance over his shoulder and found LeBron who was just eagerly waiting for the lob so that he can do this:
Nothing that we haven’t seen before from these too and it won’t be the last.
But again, the Pelicans are giving them a bit of a run in the first half, so more of these may be necessary.
