Can the Ball Movement Continue?

The Miami Heat will have to do their scoring mostly from the perimeter and that’s just fine with them. With players such as Jimmy Butler, Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro, Jae Crowder, and Kendrick Nunn, the Heat will be raining down shots from deep.

In order to keep that offense productive, they will need to continue to move the ball. Before the hiatus, the Heat ranked 5th in assists. Erik Spoelstra has always preached ball movent and this current crop of players have relished in their roles.

With a veteran floor general in Goran Dragic and up and coming guard in Nunn, the Heat have remained in the top-five in terms of keeping a defense off-balance with precise passing. Can they succeed in the playoffs?

With more of a halfcourt set being used when the game gets tight, this is one advantage the Heat can use against the tough defense of the Bucks, Boston Celtics, and 76ers. On the season, the Heat have three players averaging five or more assists per game.

What the ball moment does is open up better shots from the perimeter and allows a player like Butler the ability to slash and get to the line.
