I can't believe Penny is starting over Ricky Davis.

OK I was wrong about the Bucks game, but we're definitely losing this one.

maybe i shouldnt even bother putting shaq in the lineup for one of my fantasy leagues. if shaq plays he definitly wont get more than 15 minutes. the way the heat are playing right now and the way the warriors are playing, i dont see the warriors losing this one. not unless ricky davis and wade each go off for 30+. even then, 60 from those two and 15 from haslem only makes 75. the rest of the heat will have to step up big.

Is this some new reverse ploy to ensure a win or do you seriously think we will lose this one?

Hey, I did it last year and it worked for a couple of weeks. :wink:


Ok, Miami sucks. Wade is still regaining his best shape, Ricky Davis should play more than he does and their only good news come from the rookie, Daequan Cook, who's proving himself as a worthy first rounder.

Still, and given the way both teams are playing, the Heat winning would be a major surprise.

Heat are dangerous and looking to start winning. The team has to play defense like they have been or this could be a loss.

No problem for the Dubs. Wade will get his points, but thats about it. Shaq will be held to under 10 points and 15 rebs.

Heat have nothing right now. Shaq is pretty close to being totally worn down in his career. Wade is out his game--either from injury, some funk, or not getting the calls that allow him 20ish FT a game. The supporting cast has little energy to show.

W's take this pretty easily, especially after the rest most got during the Bucks game, and today's rest. W's by 20 as the Riley begins to really sweat out the year.

I predict foul trouble for SJax, if they put him on DWade. Dwayne usually gets his calls.

Biedrins should have fun, now that Shaq moves like he's wading through molasses. Hopefully, this will be another night where Brandan and Patrick get 6-8 minutes of floor time. I'd love to see them used more frequently, though.

We better watch out tonight. Ricky Davis is a Warrior-killer, Wade is always dangerous, Shaq can beat us if he gets positioning in the post, and Williams can hurt us too. If we can impose our style on the game, we will win. Otherwise, we will need to play the lock-down defense we have been playing.
