If you're not watching Rockets-Heat, yes, Houston's defense has been as bad as the score suggests. Miami is playing well, but Houston's mistakes on defense are embarrassing.

Coming into this game, the Heat had a 4-1 record, good enough for second place in the Eastern Conference and making them one of the NBA’s pleasant surprises early this season.
As expected, they beat the struggling Memphis Grizzlies on opening night, and three days later they outlasted the powerhouse Milwaukee Bucks 131-126 in overtime, raising eyebrows across South Florida.
Both of those wins came without Jimmy Butler, who was with his wife celebrating the birth of their daughter.
So far, Tyler Herro has looked like a diamond in the rough. The 13th overall pick in this year’s NBA draft is averaging 16.4 points per game through the first five contests of the season.
But the big story has been Kendrick Nunn. The undrafted rookie has averaged 22.4 points per game while shooting a white-hot 48.4 percent from three-point range in the Heat’s first five games.
