The Heat wants Winslow to take open shots when they come to him — so he can get his jump shot into a rhythm — they also want him to pick the right spots to cut to the basket and get to the rim for layups because he makes more of those shots. That’s something Waiters said earlier this week injured former starter Rodney McGruder provided with ease and helped open up the floor. “I think they would like everybody to do a better job cutting to the basket, but especially me,” Winslow said. “If the shot is not falling, try to get some easy ones — especially early. It’s tricky sometimes. You don’t want to mess up the spacing when somebody is driving. I’ve gotten yelled at for cutting at the wrong time. Sometimes it’s a hard balance to find when to do it and how to do it and that kind of thing.”
Although there is still no timetable for McGruder’s return, he accompanied the Heat on their season-long six-game trip. Coach Erik Spoelstra is appreciative of McGruder’s presence, but also knows that he has to keep a close eye on him. “It’s great,” Spoelstra said. “It’s also annoying. He’s always trying to do a little bit more. You always have to make sure you’re paying attention to him. He keeps you on your toes.”
