Heat Keep On Rollin' ...
Antoine Walker scored all of his 13 points in the final 11 minutes, and the streaking Miami Heat erased a 17-point second-half deficit to beat the Utah Jazz 88-86 on Tuesday night.
Miami matched its largest comeback of the season and finished a 6-0 homestand -- all without Dwyane Wade, the reigning NBA finals MVP who is out with a dislocated left shoulder.
"With D-Wade out, everybody's been stepping up," Walker said. "And every night, it's been someone different for us." [ESPN]
And this from Ira Winderman's blog: "Give Antoine Walker credit: He never stops shooting."
There's a joke in there somewhere. It really wants to come out. But I'll hold back. 'Toine did us good tonight. 'Toine did us good ... Antooooinne Waaaaaaalkerrrrr!!!!!
Don't look now... but the Heat are rollin' while D-Wade sits out and rehabs.
Oh ... and Rick, it's called a reverse jinx.

Last night he had no choice. The Jazz did an excellent job covering our three point shooters and making Antoine hit his (or miss them). EJ, Posey and J-Will had no good looks from the three last night.
