    I should add that I expect Weems to have another good game as he gets more comfortable playing minutes that actually count.

    Lets just hope the Raptors aren't having a late night on South Beach as we speak. Otherwise, a winnable game - Miami was terrible against Memphis, and I mean terrible.

    It all boils down to how Wade will feel. If he's in one of those nights where he goes off for 40 or more he will motivate his mates and the crowd otherwise winnable for us. I see Wright playing heavy minutes today.

    I'm just hoping that Triano sticks to his guns and continues to give Wright's minutes to Weems. Until Antoine can prove himself, continue to sit him. Sonny deserves the PT right now.

    Ohh, too close too call. I think this is gonna be a choppy ugly game. Miami got embarrassed the other night and are looking to bounce back. Apparently they had a team meeting to figure things out. Remember the game following the Raps team meeting? So I see Miami coming out with a vengeance. Hopefully Toronto can match their intensity and give another solid defensive effort. IDK my gut is telling me Miami will take this one, but I'll be optimistic and say the Dinos will pull out a squeaker.

    Raps 98-Miami 96

    Let's Go Raptors!

    Quentin Richardson is a major loss for Miami.

    Is Mario Chalmers out? Or is he on the bench? If he's out too ... then Miami's perimeter cast is in trouble.

    Ah, Chalmers is coming off the bench.

    That looks like a rare poor decision by Spoelstra. Wade, and the Heat on a whole, are far less effective when he has to play alongside a ball happy point guard with a poor jump shot.

    How many more uncontrolled drives to the basket does DeRozan have to do before we yank him? He's 0 for what seems like 100 in layups tonight.

    Aw jeez ... Bargnani's defense on Beasley. He's blowing by Bargnani with ease.

    Miami leading 85-68 late in the third. This game is over.

    I have no confidence in the Raptors ability to make large comebacks this season ... their lack of defensive quality makes that an extremely difficult task.

    This is a disappointing loss.

    Seriously ... I don't understand this team. Do we need to hire a sports psychologist?
