Goes both ways.
No, you're making an assumption that if the bigs were more involved that the offense would have operated better. Like game 4, Westbrook shot over 60%. Durant still scored an efficient 28. You don't know that involving the bigs would have made the offense more potent. Even if OKC could have adapted to Miami's adjustments. We do know that a few extra stops would have decreased Miami's offensive output.

Like I said, OKC's offense managed a 110 rating 4 out of 5 games. Offense was not this huge issue. Many people, including sports writers are missing their real achilles heal. It's missing the forest by looking at a few trees. Saying the defense "sucked" at times is a fairer comment than Westrbrook sucks at PG.
