Enemy Chatter: Norris Cole is Miami’s version of Rondo


I often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics after playing the Celtics. Here's a dose of 'enemy chatter' from Miami.

I hope you have been paying attention to previous posts so last night should not have come as a surprise.  Norris Cole is turning out to be Miami’s very own, dare I say it, Rajon Rondo.  The quick, crafty, and clutch Cole had 14 of his 20 points in the 4th quarter including 2 key jumpers to keep the Heat up 5 in the final minutes.

Almost everything went right for the Heat in this one.  Wade impressed with 4 blocks, LeBron led the team in scoring, Bosh had double figures in rebounding, and the Big 3 combined for 68 points.

Will Norris Cole be in the starting lineup in the Heat’s next game?

All U Can Heat

I'll admit that this post is pretty weak. I expected a lot more from the Heat bloggers. 

As of 11 am, SB Nation's Heat blog had no game recap. And ESPN's Heat Index is a shell of itself. I didn't think ESPN was capable of toning down anything.

There also didn't appear to be much criticism of the Heat for nearly blowing a 20 point second half lead. Then again, maybe they stopped watching.
