“Hello. My name is George. I’m unemployed and I live with my parents.”

"If every instinct you have is wrong, then the opposite would have to be right."

Last night’s Heat-Nets game was a mirror image of Game 1, except this time it favored the Heat. Here’s a sample:

-Dwayne Wade came out of his shell and scored 31. D-Wade went 12 for 19, including 3 for 3 from the three point line and 4 for 4 from the stripe.

-Shaq once again abandoned his juggernaut style and played with a bit more finesse. The Daddy ended the night with 21 points. Lost in the stats was that he was never called for a defensive 3 second violation, which means the Diesel was constantly moving.

-Udonis Haslem had a solid night with 11 points as did Old Man Payton. How? U stayed out of foul trouble and Payton finally realized that we're no longer living in 1995.

-Best of all, our boy Antoine Walker didn’t screw things up. He hit two threes and – more importantly – only took four of them the whole game. He also only took a total of six shots. I’m beginning to think that Toine’s best contribution comes from the defensive side of the ball. Too bad he doesn’t think that as he will undoubtedly return to shooting 20 three pointers a game (18 of them ill-advised) some time during this series again.

But today is not Bash-Toine Day. It’s a day to be happy and know that our boys have not given up so neither should we. The series is tied at one game apiece heading into the Chemical Manufacturing Capital of the World and that’s a good thing.

So the analysis of this game is simple. If the guys do the exact opposite of what they’ve been doing lately, they’ll win. That’s it.

See you Friday.

Let’s Go Heat!!


Let's Go Heat!! Tonight is the true test.
You got that right, JD ... now the series REALLY begins.

And I agree with you, Dude, Toine's best efforts could be his defense. Oh well ...
The NBA announced today that Clifford Robinson of the New Jersey Nets has been suspended without pay for five games for violating the terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program. Robinson’s suspension will begin with tonight’s game between the New Jersey Nets and the Miami Heat.

Big Loss for the Nets as far as an extra big man perimeter shooter. One less person for Shaq to foul :)
"One less person for Shaq to foul"

well said, JD. but the refs will find a way.
