There is little doubt that Miami needs more offensive weapons heading into the 2022-23 campaign; it had too many scoring droughts to beat a team like the Boston Celtics, who still occasionally had offensive problems of their own. Regardless, drafting forward Nikola Jovic should help slightly; he should come off the bench and provide some scoring. The Heat also brought back Victor Oladipo, who should be completely healthy after missing significant time in the past few seasons. Oladipo’s best years may be behind him, but he can still score the ball at a high level. Between Herro, Jovic, and Oladipo, Miami should have enough bench scoring to turn a weakness into a strength.
Reasons Why Miami Heat Can & Can’t Win NBA 2022-23 Championship
- Defense: Miami finished last season with arguably the second-best defense in the NBA behind only the Boston Celtics, who squeezed past them to make it to the NBA Finals. The Heat ranked second in opponent points per game, fourth in defensive efficiency, and second in opponent three-point percentage (3P%.) They also finished fifth in defensive rating, barely behind the Grizzlies for fourth. Bam Adebayo is the anchor for this defense, but Jimmy Butler and Kyle Lowry are also solid defenders who can help Adebayo carry this team.
- Coaching/Culture: You’ve heard it one million times, either from me or from NBA fans or experts: the Miami Heat have a winning culture. This culture has been cultivated for years behind head coach Erik Spoelstra and Heat president Pat Riley. It’s also identifiable in long-time Heat player and veteran Udonis Haslem, who they keep on the roster specifically to be a locker room guy; he scarcely plays, and when he does, it is at the end of a blowout game. Miami has been to an NBA Finals and two Eastern Conference Finals in the past few years, so it would be fair to feel it can do it again in 2023.
- Offensive Droughts/Depth: Miami was prone to going on severe scoring droughts during the 2021-22 regular season, but the playoffs were even worse at times. Excluding the Atlanta Hawks series, because their defense was non-existent, the Heat struggled. They ranked tenth in the playoffs in offensive rating and were only saved by the occasional Jimmy Butler explosion. If rookie Nikola Jovic and injury-prone Victor Oladipo can step up for Miami off the bench, it has a chance to finish atop the Eastern Conference again.
