Its been philosophized by coaches and analysts that the best offense is a good defense, but apparently no ones forwarded this memo to the Miami Heat. Miamis high-flying offense has placed the team near the top of the league in points per game, with Dwyane Wade among the leagues scoring leaders. But defensively, the Heat would have difficulties protecting a box of Oreos from a stoned kid with the munchies. With Heat forward Antoine Walker welcoming his former team the Boston Celtics to the American Airlines Arena this Monday, we can expect more of the same. The Celtics come in struggling to keep the ball out of the net, giving up more than a Benjamin a game. But with scoring threats Ricky Davis and Paul Pierce, the Celtics havent had problems lighting the scoreboard themselves.
