Kevin McHale Rumors
Hall of Famer and NBA TV analyst Kevin McHale said the Heat lacks a key ingredient to championship teams: “When you watch Miami play, they don’t have a guy you can give it to and say ‘Here, this is the ball. You’re at your spot and go get us a hoop’ [where] the defense knows that’s his spot and they have to double-team him there,” McHale said after Game 4.
“They sometimes have to have five or six different actions to get a decent shot in this series in one possession. All good championships teams have that guy you can give it to on his spot on the floor… Everybody had a player you can go to. Miami doesn’t have that. They’ve got to generate offense with so much motion. It’s hard to generate good shots against good playoff defense especially after three or four games in a row. They don’t have that guy. Jimmy Butler can’t do this against AD.”
Ohm Youngmisuk: With 32 points and 14 rebounds and shooting 15 of 20, Anthony Davis is the fifth player in Finals history with at least 30 points and 10 rebounds and 75% shooting in a playoff game, joining Shaquille O’Neal (2x), Kevin McHale, Larry Bird and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar per @ESPNStatsInfo
