MiamiHerald / On Heat Twitter it’s known as the “Turd Quarter.”
In reality, it’s where all of the Miami Heat’s struggles usually begin – right after halftime and right after a lot of good stuff usually happens for Erik Spoelstra’s bunch over the first two quarters.
“I don’t know if we’re not warming up right, I don’t know if our brain is shutting off at halftime, but whatever it is we’ve got to figure it out soon,” Josh Richardson said Monday, a day after another one of the Heat’s epic third-quarter collapses led to its most embarrassing loss of the season, a 120-95 defeat at home to the Indiana Pacers.
“I’ve heard [the jokes, seen the poop emojis on Heat Twitter],” Richardson continued. “Like I said, we’ve got to do something.”
