You know that whole rule about not turning the ball over against the Miami Heat because it can lead to easy buckets and spectacular dunks that fire them up? Orlando forgot about that in the second half Monday. Well, that or they are Orlando and couldn’t stop what was happening anyway.

First up is poor Beno Udrih being the lone guy back on defense, essentially conceding an open layup to Norris Cole to prevent the alley-oop to LeBron James and getting dunked on anyway.

The second one was LeBron passing to Chris Andersen, who simply runs harder than any of the Magic bigs and goes straight to the rim while everyone is focused on LeBron.

To beat the Heat, taking away these easy baskets is part of it.
