    Pessimistic about this one. I had a win penciled in until we had to use the starters so much last night. Dwight still not 100%, I think Bosh/Wade go bonkers in a close loss.

    We will bring the heat back down to earth.
    Rockets win easily 109-90.
    Thursday is when the season begins.

    The Heat are playing just as well as the Rockets right now. And the stats also support that.

    Plus, it's the second game of a back-to-back on the road. Not going to be an easy game.

    why did you think the Heat are unbeaten? It was not because of 16 ppg averaged by Wade it was a team effort apart from the elite production by Bosh.

    Agreed it wont be an easy game

    felt like the starters played 2 much last night but at least they won the game which is the goal no matter what team it is. I think the game will be close and bosh will win it for them :(

    Let's remember that this is just the 5th game of an 82-game regular season. A win against Miami would be nice, but don't overuse the cornerstones.

    This is going to be a good game. I expect a battle!

    Won't be the end of the world if we lose either ( like many think it will) The Heat are very underrated and we are on a B2B.

    Still think we win

    No Birdman is huge news for us. He creates a lot of problems for Dwight

    Tonight looks now much easier...

    The NBA schedule is such a joke sometimes. 5th game in 8 nights and the second road back to back of the season. We will go 4-1 at worst but its uncalled for to schedule games this way.

    It's kind of sad and says a lot that so many people are now taking this as a serious, top notch game. A week ago everyone thought this would be a cake game and now we are talking like it's the Spurs or Clips. The Heat surprised a lot of people I guess
