    I don't think the bleeding is about to stop just yet.

    What do you guys think? I can't see either DeMar or Marco containing Wade from going off tomorrow night.

    We'll win this one, rather easily I might add.

    Haslem might be a go after all and Hedo might be out.

    According to ESPN there was no mention of Hedo missing tonight's affair, so lets keep our fingers crossed.

    As mentioned last night, Haslem might be a go but the Heat might be without Q-Rich this evening. No big loss for the Heat of you ask me. I recall Cook ate us alive last season anyways.

    Miami hopes to have forward Udonis Haslem back Friday after he sat out against Atlanta due to an ailing left shoulder. He began feeling pain last week in the weight room and aggravated the injury against the Thunder when he fell on the shoulder.

    The Heat decided to be cautious, keeping Haslem out against the Hawks even though he wanted to play. Haslem is averaging 11.7 points and a team-high 9.6 rebounds off the bench.

    "He's a tough guy," coach Erik Spoelstra said. "He'd like to play through it."

    Miami's depth suffered another blow when Quentin Richardson sustained a lower back strain early in the third quarter against the Hawks. Richardson, averaging 7.6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 11 starts, didn't return and his status is uncertain.

    Heat lost 4 in row, they may be looking to stop the bleed. The Raptors is back from West Coast trip. Both teams are eager to get a win, I just hope Raptors will prevail.

    Raptors 110 - Heat 102

    Let's go Raptors.

    DeRozan with an excellent alley hoop, driving ACC audience nuts . I really like DeRozan game, he still makes rookie mistakes but he works hard and his athleticism is unbelievable.

    Is there something wrong with the chat room? This is the first time that I haven't been able to join it... is it maxed out in terms of participants?

    Anyone else having trouble joining the chat room?

    It just says "A connection to the server could not be established. Let's try connecting to http://raptorsrepublic.com/liveblog/chat.php again.... " and it counts down from 10 over and over.

    Help?

    I opened up the "Activity Window" and it keeps saying that http://raptorsrepublic.com/crossdomain.xml is not found... if that helps...

    We built a 20-point lead at halftime, lost it by the 4th, but Jack hit some big threes and also Bargs hit a big one to save us.

    Highlights wise DD had a sick and-1 alleyoop, Amir got dunked on pretty badly by Joel Anthony, Bargs had a pretty nice and-1 dunk, Amir hit a circus shot (after a nice pass by marco)..and that's about all I remember.

    Thanks tmk. I'm hoping to catch the "Game in an Hour" edition of last night's game today. Oh, and welcome to the RR forums.
