A vital part on why the Miami Heat fell short in last year's finals was the minimal production coming from the point guard position.
During last season, Mario Chalmers averaged 6.4 points per game to go along with 2.5 assists per game. Eddie House averaged nearly the same in points and 1.1 assists per game.
Over-the-hill veteran Mike Bibby, after being bounced around from Atlanta to Washington to Miami, averaged 8.6 points per game with 3.3 assists per game.
Losing House and Bibby in the offseason, Miami found themselves with Mario Chalmers and rookie Norris Cole from Cleveland State.
In his inaugural season, Cole has averaged 8.3 points per game and 2.4 assists. Chalmers has almost doubled his point and assist averages from last season, scoring 11.1 points and dishing out 3.7 assists per game.
With a trio of James, Wade and Bosh, you're not going to see a point guard who averages 18 and 10 simply because the "big three" are the players with the ball.
With the point guard tandem of Chalmers and Cole, the Miami Heat have obtained the right amount of production from that position to be a significant factor in their success this season.
