Tuesday night the Miami Heat were handed their second defeat of the season when they visited the Denver Nuggets in the first of a three-game road trip. The final score was 89-109 and the defeat was a sobering one as the team has been flying high with gritty and impressive performances recently. While we all were feeling a little down from the loss, one Miami Heat fan was, well, turning up the heat in the best way possible.
Despite Jimmy Butler's absence at the beginning of the season and the off-court controversy with Dion Waiters, Erik Spoelstra's men have been raising eyebrows early on this season. While the loss in Denver is not the way the team wanted this road trip to kick-off, there was a silver lining toward the end of the game and it came in the form of one particular fan.
As the final seconds of the game dwindled down, this gentleman seemingly embodied the entire Miami Heat community by delivering some much-needed words of wisdom.
"I don't care about this win, keep it going!" the man can be heard shouting.
Honestly, we could not have said it better ourselves. This guy totally gets it. Yes, the team may have lost Tuesday night, but so what? It's bound to happen sometimes.
This man's attitude is what you'd want to see in your fans and players alike. Judging from the intensity this new-look Heat team has shown so far, there is no reason to believe that Jimmy Butler and company will not do just that.
The fact that Tuesday night's loudest Heat fan was wearing a Kendrick Nunn jersey is just the perfect cherry on top of this hot fudge sundae of a pep talk.
Heat Twitter was absolutely feeding off everyone's new favorite role model last night after this video was released.
This Tweet brings up a good point. As previously noted, the Heat are currently on their first road trip of the season. Thursday night they visit the Phoenix Suns before facing former Heat legend and taco Tuesday fanatic, LeBron James and the LA Lakers on Friday.
This Tweet has us scratching our heads. Is Kendrick Nunn a household name? No, of course not. The undrafted rookie is at the very beginning of his career. However, it should not come as a surprise to anyone that Heat fans would be rushing to the sports store for some Nunn merch. The 24-year-old has quickly become a favorite after breaking multiple franchise records early on this season.
