    ASK IRA: Is Heat defense unacceptable, even in preseason?
    Q: In the preseason's initial game the Heat allowed 98 points. In the next three games they allowed 108, 122, 109 points. In these last three games the Heat scored over 100 points each time and still lost each one. That is not championship ball, even if it is preseason. The problem started in summer league with the Heat's numerous losses and is carrying on into preseason. The media blames the easy targets: the players on the floor. The real problem is the coaching staff's lack of urgency. Pat Riley had that championship pedigree and winning mentality. This season's coaching staff was picked by Erik Spoelstra, and so far his choices have done a very poor job of creating a winning culture. Riley's assistant coaches and staff was far superior in assembling a competitive squad. The Heat have a playoff-caliber team, but in the preseason the coaching staff seems weak, indecisive and tentative at best. Again, this pattern of losing started in the summer league. The coaching staff rationalizes the indecisiveness as testing, but it's more of a case of not knowing what they are doing and hoping someone will come along and bail them out. The players seem disorganized and discouraged, and that emanates directly from incompetent coaching. It's too easy to shift all the blame to the players. -- Sag.
