no,it's common sense the rocket need heat to lift-off,which means we will win all the last games after we kick Heat's butt:wink: u know,Yao always got inspired after playing against Shaq.

anyway,i am all excited to watch this game, i never lost interests in Yao-Shaq matchup,and now add TMAC-Wade.i don't care the result of the game much,the game itself is a festival.

50-50 chance.

JVG always want to win against SVG.
Yao gonna hold his own against Shaq like always.
T-mac must break out of the recent slump against Wade offensively.
Our 3-point shooters must make some shots to match up with D Jones.
Start Mutombo at 4...... :sigh:

yep. These games vs Houston are always fun. We have such similair teams, built around 2 superstars with role players around them with a coach trained by Riley. I think the Heat have the edge though because Shaq is the most dominant player in basketball, and Eddie Jones is more than just a role player.

anyway, Haslem may not play in this one, so im not really sure what to predict. He does a lot for us and hasnt missed a game all year. Hopefully he gives it a go and if he does I predict a slight heat victory, by 2-5 points. Never easy against a really good team on the road

Well, I'll go against my better judgement and go with my heart!

Heat 104
Rockets 110

A roleplayer will have a great game for us. I think Jon Barry drops 17-20 points in a rockets win. Should be a fun game to watch though. I look forward to it. 4 of the best players at their positions going at it baby!

Braggs will probably start for us at the 4 with Padgett coming off the bench, Weatherspoon has been awful. Plus, with Haslem and Laettner the Heat don't exactly have the strongest of PF's so Spoon won't be of much service to us.

With the expection of Yao, Barry and Bowen, the team has shot the ball very poorly over the last couple of games. We have failed to execute on offense, and Yao oftens finds himself out of the offensive set before it even begins. The good thing about Shaq is that he doesn't front Yao, so Yao will have no problem getting touches. We just need the Wesley's and Sura's to hit their outside shots once Yao is doubled, which could be the case if he gets going early. If I remember correctly we shot something like 3-24 from 3-point range the last time we met in Miami.

McGrady, McGrady, McGrady... Shandon Anderson is a tough defender but there's no way he can stop you from getting to the basket. Go straight at Shaq, try to keep him out of the game with foul trouble. If your shot is falling, then great. But don't slack off thinking you can shoot yourself right back into the game, because it hasn't happened over the last 4 games. And please... practice your layups!

Keeping Dwayne Wade out of the paint should be a hard enough job for James and Wesley, but keeping him away from Yao should be Braggs's responsibility. The last thing we want is Yao to pick up 2 early ticky-tack fouls from Wade penetrating to the basket. Braggs should be a nice surprise, he's a tough, hard-working player who should do a better job than Howard on the glass.

Very winnable game if we get Yao 15 shots and rotate the ball efficiently on the perimeter. Defensively we need to pick up our slack on the screen and rolls. Should be a close one all the way or an absolute blowout in favor of Miami.

Miami 97

Miami, I like what what you guys are doing...12 game win streak, 19-2 in your last 21...but this ish stops tonight.

Yao vs. Shaq at Toyota Center usually goes in Yao's favor, so if Yao put up 20+ pts, it would come as no surprise to me. T-Mac needs to shot better, thats obvious, but 4-22 can't happen again. The role players will be huge tonight, if we wanna pull this one out....James,Barry,T-Braggs,Bowen,Sura,D-Wes, etc.


The defensive rotation HAS to get better..its borderline painful to watch at times, and with this Miami team, it will again be a factor. With Dwyane Wade, we have to cut off the lanes so he doesnt go to the rack with ease like he did last time. (Remember the defense we played against LA in the playoffs last yr...where we cut off the lanes so Kobe couldn't penetrate all day against us?)
We have to make Wade's jumper beat us, not his driving ability.

I say, with great D and good offense, we end the 12 game winning streak for the Heat, but it'll be a good one.

Rockets 102
Heat 96
