The Miami Heat Is Putting Us All In The Thanksgiving Mood
It is that time of the season
The weather may be cooling down but the heat is still definitely on in South Florida. The Miami Heat team, comprised of multiple role players and relatively unknown names and led by four-time NBA All-star Jimmy Butler is undefeated when playing at home this season.
Wednesday night the Heat hosted the Cleveland Cavaliers at the American Airlines Arena and easily defeated the 2016 NBA Champ 124-100. Last night's stand out player for the home team was definitely Duncan Robinson. The undrafted Michigan Wolverine ended the game with a career-high 29 points and set a franchise record by scoring nine three-pointers in one half.
The Miami Heat's social team took advantage of the occasion and embraced the time of the season with a hilarious Instagram post that has got us all in the Thanksgiving mood.
"When you see your favorite cousins pull up" is the perfect caption. This team has surprised many early on in this season. The Heat made big waves over the summerfrom the Philadelphia 76ers. But apart from Butler and a few familiar faces in the Heat roster, this team has plenty of relative unknowns.
The aforementioned Duncan Robinson and fellow undrafted rookie Kendrick Nunn have been making huge waves throughout the beginning of this season.
Robinson and Nunn have been responsible for some hilarious Instagram posts as well. This Kendrick Nunn post that references an old TV show from the '60s called The Flying Nunn might be one of our favorites.
The impressive performances from these young ballers speaks to the amazing coaching staff that the Miami Heat have. It is no wonder the organization is regarded as one of the best in the league.
Heat fans ought to be thankful for such a fun and hard-working team. This season is truly proving to have plenty of potential for the team from the 305.
The Heat's next game is in Chicago as Erik Spoelstra and company face the Bulls on Friday night.
