http://www.ezekielbearsports.com/bbs/nba/heat.gif - 97

We lose ... this team's deserves to get demoted to the NBDL. :mad:

Predict and discuss!

Sick, Wicked and Nasty! 03-18-2008 02:28 PM

Why's Marion out? Does he have the 'no wade no play' affliction?

Dunno, but I read the other day that he's done for the season too. I think its his back that's causing him problems. :confused2:

The MVP of West Hollywood 03-18-2008 02:35 PM

Lol at Miami's lineup.

Anything less than a 15 point victory = bust

Cool, so it is the 'no wade no chance of win no play' thing. Good for us :) Bosh back..this one is going to get ugly.

Raptorman 03-18-2008 03:17 PM

I hope TJ has a good long look at the two Me-First players (Ricky Davis & Jason Williams) on the Heat and where they are in their careers.

INSIDER 03-18-2008 03:47 PM

i really hope TJ explodes for 30points tonight.
if anyone out there needs a PG next season its miami.
maybe they'd be stupid enough to accept a TJ trade.

TJ and our first rounder..
for
Ricky Davis and miami's first rounder...

this is the ping pong ball strategy. this line-up would be hard pressed to win a d-league game. we lose this one, all hell breaks loose. we got cleveland and denver next. sad to say, but this is our only winnable game in the next three.

Dr. J. Naismith 03-18-2008 03:57 PM

Bosh isn't confirmed 100% yet, so I don't have him in the starting lineup until I know that he's playing. Considering how shitty the Heat are right now, I could see them giving him off an extra night to rest instead. :)

Dr. J. Naismith 03-18-2008 04:23 PM

Alright, now that its official I've editted the starting lineup and have Bosh back in. Just not sure at this point if Sam is going to go with Andrea or Rasho. :confused2:

Krazy Ivan 03-18-2008 04:48 PM

I would keep Bargnani in the starting lineup...

fho 03-18-2008 05:42 PM

This game should still be a gimmie without Bosh. If we can't win then we're a lost cause.

They should rest Bosh, or use the game to warmup his return.

Dr. J. Naismith 03-18-2008 09:31 PM

Apparently I was wrong and Marion isn't done for the season. He's playing tonight for the Heat. :(

Kuzzy 03-18-2008 11:03 PM

I just hope our initial big 3 click
tj ford
chris bosh
andrea bargnani
that was colangelos plan
and its going to work somehow
once tj fins himself as a player
once bargnani develops
and bosh just has to be bosh

Three reasons why we should lose:

1. first home game after a long road trip is always difficult, utah was playing like they were asleep on Monday after their east coast trip.
2. with Bosh back and not 100%, he's due for a 3/17 game with few free throws because the referees will have lots of pitty for poor miami ...
3. Marion will have a monster game after Moon shut him down the other game, and generally speaking, the heat will want to revenge the previous 2 blowouts


Three reasons we should win:

1. we HAVE to win this one
2. Miami sucks
3. they are on a back to back, and after a victory - nobody there wants to win too many games this season and compromise their balls (ping pong balls, that is).

The MVP of West Hollywood 03-19-2008 01:33 PM

Jesus, we're favored by 18 on this game... bit high. Though I guess the fact that we've been blowing them out this year might have something to do with that.

Raptorman 03-19-2008 01:55 PM

Id take Miami to cover the spread.

Raps win by 10
