Sheridan: Heat lacking intensity, Warriors are for real

Earlier this week, Chris Perkins – our man in Miami – told us that the defending champion Heat aren’t ready to sound the alarms of concern over their recent play, which has looked a bit distracted.

I spoke with Cinesport’s Noah Coslov about the same topic, hours after Miami’s dispassionate disposition continued in a last-second home loss to the Golden State Warriors.

While the Heat may have looked uncharacteristically disjointed down the stretch, perhaps it was less about them and more about the Warriors, who improved to 5-0 on their current seven-game road trip.

The Warriors are 15-7 and appear to be legit. They are knocking on the door of a top-four seed in the powerful Western Conference. And with a win over the defending champions, they no longer can be regarded as the NBA’s best team flying under the radar, as Chris Bernucca pointed out in his column earlier this week.

Noah and I also reviewed the best games on the docket this weekend, including the highly anticipated return of a certain flashy point guard.
