Mario Chalmers finds LeBron with the pass through a defender’s legs (VIDEO)

Nov 12, 2013, 11:12 PM EDT

You knew the Heat would be all business at home against the Bucks on Tuesday after LeBron James came out publicly and owned up to just how awful Miami’s defense has been to start the season.

Milwaukee wasn’t expected to provide much of a challenge, and this play symbolizes perfectly just how much the Heat toyed with their opponent in this one.

As Mario Chalmers brings the ball up late in the second quarter, the Wizards were technically back defensively. Khris Middleton was in a fairly typical defensive stance, but with his legs spread a bit wider than normal, the opening provided the perfect passing lane for Chalmers to get the ball to James, who was able to convert the and-1 finish.

    Miami sports fans needed a win tonight. Been a rough week and a half.

    And by the way……BEASLEY

      Bron-Bron said he’s taken Bease under his wing. It’s showing.

        Yeah, it really struck me when LBJ said that about B-Z. Count me among those who initially thought that Beasley would make the team but be a non-factor. While it is still early, it looks more and more like his entrance to the regular rotation is now inevitable.

        And it’s not even so much that he has come out on fire, literally every time he gets in. We know that instant offense is what he can provide. It’s the way he’s been hustling back to contest shots in transition. And how about the pass to Norris Cole for the open three tnonight? Beasley easily could have forced up a tough layup, but he found the open man. It’s still early, but I’m starting to believe…

    Rio finally seems fully integrated with Bron. You’ll notice he’s not getting yelled at as much these days. He’s even throwing accurate lobs now! He had a lob to LBJ today that was like whoa.
