Default Can an Uptempo Offense beat the Miami Heat?

Just an observation after watching OKC vs Miami last night. It seems every time OKC pushed the ball up and missed their shot, Miami came racing down the other way and had easy buckets or layups.

I think The Clippers had same thing happen to them when they Played Miami recently but I think they had some injuries so Not sure if they were full strength.

Is the key to beating Miami is having a go to post player with ball movement and shooters the blueprint?

Then pretty much the only team(s) than can do so is the Spurs and to a lesser extant the Grizzlies and Knicks?

You aren't going to beat Miami running.

Teams that have caused Miami problems: Indiana

Why? Because they are big and have perimeter in Gerorge Hill and Paul George. But they still couldn't beat a Miami without(!) Bosh.

So, no, go big, go small. It won't matter to Miami. The only team that can beat them is a REAL team like San Antonio. Those guys don't rely on one or two players, they rely on everybody and can annoy Miami with their fantastic 3 point shooting.

So unless Miami gets San Antonio in the final, they will probably win it all again.

The whole "slow the game down and beat them up down low" theory is flawed. No type of system, pace, interior advantage etc can beat the Miami Heat. Were this true, the Lakers with their skyscraper front-line of Gasol/Howard should dominate the Heat... and yet they get their arse kicked every time they play the Heat.

Basically, no matter how you play... fast, slow, moderate pace, physical, finesse, crashing the boards, dirty - none of it matters. The Heat cannot be beaten when they are trying. The Grizzlies and Knicks would be swept in 4 games. Spurs would probably be taken out in 5.

It might be true if Pau and Dwight weren't both shells of their former selves.

Would probably have to be like a Mavs 2011 situation for the Spurs where chemistry was off the charts and they hit all the important shots while being solid defensively. Plus a subpar series from Wade or Bosh wouldn't hurt.

But honestly this team isn't anywhere near playing it's peak basketball of the season, yet we have the best record in the NBA. If we're healthy and clicking at the right time, no doubt we could get to the Finals or possibly beyond. The Spurs are better than last year by my estimations.
