You might not have realized it, but the NBA is currently offering a free introductory course in Efficiency 101.

Where can you enroll? Just pull up a chair and study this Heat-Bucks series. No textbooks necessary, we promise.

Miami won Game 1 easily, scoring 110 points to Milwaukee’s 87. It’s true that the Heat enjoy an enormous talent advantage over their first-round foe and there was no hiding that on Sunday. But the Heat also employ a much smarter brand of basketball and that’s why they’ve achieved juggernaut status while the Bucks' season continues its downward spiral with me-first reckless shooting.
