Suns and Heat have identical 6-4 records. What does this mean?

First Take

In basketball math, it should look something like this:

LeBron + Wade + Bosh > Nash + Richardson + Turkoglu

The Heat and Suns’ identical 6-4 records indicate otherwise. Both teams claim to be in the process of meshing as a team, which makes you wonder either

a) how good Phoenix can be or

b) how much did we overestimate Miami?

Food for thought

  • What if Miami goes big with LeBron or Wade at the point? Where does Steve Nash hide? On James Jones? This is more than concerning.
  • Will Hakim Warrick outperform Chris Bosh? Is it crazy that this is even a question?
  • As Keaton pointed out in the Soundoff, LeBron seems to pull out the heavy artillery on Planet Orange. James averages 29.8ppg against the Suns over his career, making Phoenix his third-most offensively ravaged opponent behind Boston and Oklahoma City.

The Pick

Orlando is the only playoff team from 2009-10 Miami has beaten so far this season. That will change unless Grant Hill and Jared Dudley play out of their minds defensively and the Suns hit 22 threes again. Heat 112, Suns 100.
