The Miami Heat need just about every game from here out…. and would seem to need every key player.
They won’t have two of the Kids for the next two games, however.
Neither Josh Richardson (heel) nor Justise Winslow (thigh) traveled to New York for the opening contest of a short trip that finishes in Boston.
That means Goran Dragic will continue to start at point guard, with Derrick Jones Jr. also likely taking a spot in the lineup. It also means that the Heat will rely heavily on Dwyane Wade and Dion Waiters to provide offense.
That should be enough against New York.
Against the Celtics, who are trying to grab a homecourt seed in the East?
