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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

once Bargnani develops

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).

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.
