|Erik Spoelstra Says Heat Will Play Faster Tempo|
This must surely fall under the, "if it's not broke, don't fix it" category. Miami coach Erik Spoelstra says he wants the 2012-13 version of his Miami team to play at a faster tempo than last year's championship winning squad. Spoelstra feels his team has the playing group to maintain that style of play, especially someone like Ray Allen, who has become a catch-and-shoot player at this stage of his career.
“I hope to play faster,” he said. “We turned it up a gear last year and I think we have the personnel to hopefully go even faster. And I think with a normal training camp and a full season, we can build that habit a little bit more.
“He’s [Allen] a Hall of Fame-type catch-and-shoot player,” Spoelstra said. “We haven’t had that element before in our offense. So it’s been a lot of fun, trying to X-and-O and come up with new ways to get him open. I don’t want to overthink it. I don’t want to totally change what we do, but that’s a great element to have, that type of weapon.”
Should be fun to watch.
