"Well, that defies explanation." -- Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy, after coming from 24 points behind in the 3rd quarter to beat the Heat in Miami
I didn’t turn on the Orlando-Miami game until midway through the 4th quarter, after the Heat had already “gone cold” so to speak. Apparently, Mike Miller had made a 70-footer just after the clock expired at the end of the first half, and Miami could have used those points. Maybe they should have tried lining up Miller for another 70-footer at the end of the game. Neither of Miami’s two final 3-point attempts from Bosh or LeBron were particularly close.
