Update: The Heat has shown an inability to defend in recent days, giving up 114 points in a loss to Indiana on Friday and 111 in a loss to Dallas on Saturday. The Clippers? Well, they had shown an ability to excel against the minnows of the NBA -- three wins against Oklahoma City and one against Minnesota, at least before the Timberwolves started to turn it around. For the Heat, Shawn Marion has sat out the last five games because of a strained groin. The Clippers have lost five games in a row and 19 of 21. Al Thornton had a mere five points in the Clippers’ loss to Washington on Saturday night, which tied his season low.
