HEAT 87 NETS 84
We came, we saw, got injured, and still conquered. What more do you want?
This game sure had the makings early on of another blowout, which would have done wonders for the teams confidence, even against the lowly Nets.
Still you have to worry about Dwades calf and hopes its not serious nor lengthy
Even more pressing than Wades calf, is the apparent head injury suffered by Spoelstra.
JO gets hurt, Humphries (who?) dominates the glass and you have to wonder.....why still no Magloire?
No matter what the circumstance, Joel/Haslem and Haslem/ Beasley in tandem needs to stop.
Have to side with a few bloggers on the Lopez kid. Nice player, nice potential, but nowhere near as much a factor as his numbers indicate. Skilled, absurdley mobile, but lite in the ass. I think Vince Carter was right when he deemd him a PF playing Center. He more of a complimentary player than a buiding block. In todays NBA he will still be a top 10 center soon.
Devin Harris seems to be rounding into form. Worth taking a look at in the summer if the Nets land Wall?
His shot having abandoned, it still makes more sense to have Skip play in the 4th quarter than to run your backup into the ground. If Arroyo isnt making taking and making that jumper, the other parts of his game arent worth having him on the floor.
I think Cook is on his way back. Q apparently is as well. Wright is progressing nicely.
You really have to wonder about the non interest in riding Beasley. I just dont get the elongated stretches without him on the floor, or the subsequent lack of touches.
On a 4 game win streak that includes 3 blowouts, have we not learned anything? Why is this team still relegating its players to play isolation ball on the same side every trip down? The same exact set up? Is it that hard to run a different play? Q in the post for a change would make a lot of sense to me.
Terrible game for Haslem. He has to bring more to the table than just a menacing scowl and bone jarring screen.
As I check the stats, Brooks Lopez just got the softest and quietest 26 points and 10 rebounds I have ever seen. WOW. Nobody is trading Beasley for that guy. Where was he in the final 5 minutes?
