Heat Offense: Shaquille O'Neal said, "Stick to the script." He thought his team took way too many jumpers in Game 2 and he demanded that they bring him the ball. Shaq delivered in Game 3 with energy, deep post ups, and lift and explosion on his post moves. His teammates heeded his request and threw him the ball early and often. Shaq is correct about the offense going to him. He is a high percentage option. When he gets the ball and he delivers the Heat win. The question is can Shaq repeat this type of performance every game? If he does the Heat will win this series.
