Match up wise I think this is an easier game then the previous 3 games.
We have been killed by teams bench and role players. SA was classic example of how there role players were able to hit 3's like crazy and they capitalized on our help defense and lack of transition defense.

Miami's bench is not that strong. We may not win, but if we can limit turnovers (and thus limit fastbreaks) it will be a lot closer then some would likely predict.


I guess we will have to see if Curry plays this game. It may be good if he doesn't, less turnovers.

Curry/Ellis will abuse Arroyo.

curry will be out, i believ because he needs to rest his ankle.
this might be very ugly.
4th of season gone and i can't wait for trade deadline or a coaching change (maybe to see udoh). but it seems new ownership is not decisive still. god save from cohan part 2.

This could get ugly really quick...I just don't see us winning this game. Maybe that's what we need though...kind of like 300 men versus 10,000 Haitians...?

Relatively speaking, we match up well against them, I am expecting big games out of Lee and Monta.

Don't forget Dorrell..

Lebron maybe the better athlete, But LeBron got no HEART.

I expect retribution from Dorrell taking out his anger on the guy who replaced him

Wheather or not we win is a different story :?:

Supposedly Udoh will be debuting tonight. We we need SOME MAJOR BEEF inside to deter King James and CB. Without Curry, it might be a blessing in disguise because his defense has been atrocious recently. I think that ankloe is bothering him a lot, especially on defense. On a side note, not sure how much better Acie Law will be as our back up PG. It wouldn't shock me to see Lin out there as much as Law if not more tonight.

Where the hell is Brendan Wright? Is he done for the season?

The ball movement looks legit in the early stages, reminds of games earlier in the season.

Many issues but bench play at the sg/pg will hurt us at the end, major minutes for Reggie/Monta/Dorrell

If and when Curry comes back I hope Smart continues with the current line up. Monta and Williams with Curry off the bench. Right now I like how he subs in Amundson and Gadz for Ab and Dlee... Surprise we didn't dress Carney.... We dress Lin, Bell, and Law but now Carney, wow...

If you had told me before the game that we'd only be down by 3 at the half I'd have been happy.

Need to get off to a quick start here.
