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.
