A: Because live by toughness, die by toughness? Even before the teams went on the field, Timberwolves coach Chris Finch stressed the need to match Heats’ toughness. His comment before the game was: “The physical character, you can not let it bother you. Of course there is some story there, so you have to make sure you just play your game.” In the end, it was almost as if the Heat were the team driven to distraction. It was a game that would have stood up well for Markieff Morris, who instead remains the sideline of post-Nikola Jokic whiplash. And if the whistle was uneven for the Heat at the end, it was no doubt just as uneven for the Timberwolves at the start. Again, it was a match with a late lead that was fritted away. This is where the real concern should stand.
