Are the Miami Heat the most overlooked team in the NBA?

by Stephen Diener

The Miami Heat outscored the Rockets, 46-14, in the 1st quarter of last nights game and never looked back on their way to a 129-100 victory.

Jimmy Butler had 18 PTS, 7 REB and 9 AST, additionally for the Heat, Duncan Robinson recorded a career-high 23 PTS and made seven 3 pointers.

You might be saying to yourself, who is Duncan Robinson?

And that’s exactly why this team, which is now 5-1 and half a game behind the 5-0 76ers for first place in the East, is being overlooked.

With names like Kendrick Nunn, Duncan Robinson, Tyler Herro, and Bam Adebayo, it’s easy to see why some might be overlooking this team considering the fact that they are not exactly household names. But they certainly will be.

The Heat are full of young athletic talent that loves to play together. And you add that to the veterans on the team like Goran Dragic and Jimmy Butler and it’s clear to see that this team is for real.

Time to start paying attention.
