Almost time for tipoff in South Beach

Let's get it Heat. Show these upstart Raps that they have a long way to go to be in our league.

Since they traded Rudy Gay, they have the best record in the East

TeamHeat! the Raptors been playing well since they lil trade but im EXPECTING for these boyz to shutem down! #CHAMPSZONE!

No time to be messing around with the Raptors, gotta thrash them from the onset of the game. As always when teams face MIAMI, I expect the Raps to launch a gang of treys. Until MIAMI can strengthen their perimeter defense, 3-land is where many teams will intiate their attack. However, I do expect MIAMI to put together a better defensive effort than lately. If the offense can maintain their efficiency while the defense tightens, we HEATians will enjoy a victorious night ...TEAM HEAT since '88!

Somebody on the team got fouled, they made the and-1 and that was his reaction.

To me it looks like "body english" hoping the ball will fall. You can see the Spurs looking over at the same time and then hanging their heads when they see it is an and 1. Don't forget that JV used to be a dancer. No joke.

Hawks lose again, thus helping our goal in striving to take over the 3rd seed in the east.

For what it's worth, our Raptors are getting seriously disrespected in a score prediction thread over on a Pacers forum.

Guess the Score 01/07/2014 Raptors

Those are some hasty predictions, especially with the way we've been playing.

The Pacers greatest strength is protection. Inside and out. We "force" teams to take mid-range shots in traffic.
The Raps's who have neither great inside scoring or big time three point shooters LIVE on mid-range jumpers.

The quick little Lowery can get around GHill and create a pocket for either shooting or passing to their slashing wings.
An important guy for them is AJohnson. He doesn't fill the stat sheet but he sets very nice picks that free up the shooters just enough.
It may look to us like those guys are shooting over their heads, but that's just how they practice.

Many teams want to take it inside and our size forces them out of their game.
Toronto is a team that doesn't need to adjust to score against us.
Reminds me of the zodiac symbol of the two fish that cover the whole "court" without getting in each others way.


We must remember that their style of play has it's disadvantages as well.
They play in the mid-ranges because they don't really have a good inside scoring presence.
And they are a little thin in terms of quality bigs.

We just need do what we do.
Let the big dawg's eat early, and often.
Exploit our size and bulk advantage.
Amir has not the strength of DWest, and he can be foul prone.
Take it to him especially. Get him in foul trouble. If we can make them double West then WE have the open spaces for our style of play. And it's a lot closer to the rim than theirs!

Well executed, our game trumps theirs.
Talented and powerful big's are very hard to come by.
Not many teams can emulate what we do at our best and most other plans are inferior.

Where we normally fail is in trying to out-play the opponent "at their own game".
It's easy and fun to run up and down and stroke J's.
But that only wins if you are superior at that style.

When we enforce OUR style then that's all we leave THEM.
It's a shame that some times we do not.
We instead shoot opportunity jumpers.

Knock it off!

Take it down low.
Wear them out.
Foul them out.
Be patient.
Inside out, every time.
Make the extra pass.
Move... with out the ball.
Punish them with our size.

Like a football team with a strong ground game, by the forth quarter the enemy should feel ready for the ice pack and three days off.
You can mow right through them.

We are average at their game.

We are almost unbeatable at ours!
Wow this Pacer fan is serious.

perimeter defense is terrible. we can not move

Can Josh Smith not really get up anymore? It looked like he struggled to get enough air for that wide open dunk. It got me thinking that I haven't seen him dunk much at all this year and he used to be one of the most prolific dunkers in the league.

Screw Karma, I want Bynum to sustain a CAREER ENDING INJURY so I never have to endure seeing him on a basketball court again. I HATE THAT IDIOT.

I think once singler hits his prime he could be a real hidden gem,someone like a parsons,where you get him on a great deal and is underrated around the league until he really busts out.

If I was a Detroit fan the only person that I would hate would be Dumars because he is the idiot that single handily destroyed the Pistons franchise. Horrible signings and trades are all his fault.
