it's not like they rode their bikes to Miami
They're playing like crap and they are feeling the effect of playing last night. Both can be true.Was the b2b the reason Marcus Morris just stood there, while Whiteside went after the ball and threw it off of him? Or is that just shitty, uninspired basketball?
Flying, even on a charter flight, is taxing on the body given the changes in air pressure and oxygen levels. Playing an NBA game, regardless of how closely contested, before flying adds to the fatigue factor. Then you have to consider that the Cs probably landed in Miami at 2 or 3am. Then you add in the fact that some people don't sleep well on the road and you can start to see how even highly conditioned athletes might be tired. Then you layer on an earlier than normal game time to accommodate TNT and this performance isn't so surprising.it's not like they rode their bikes to Miami
