Leads are not what they used to be in the NBA. They fall by the wayside pretty easy all over. I don't need to see them keep a huge lead as much as I'd love to see them be able to hold onto a sizable enough lead and make it very hard to give that up. Last night they weathered three or four strong runs by Miami, but it wasn't until they got some bad calls and then Solomon losing his mind that the lead just dried up quickly. And yet they returned to form immediately and the small lead they came back with was hard for Miami to counter.
