If Haslem is out, I'd imagine that we start Doleac. Zo will fill in his old bench minutes. After that, I don't know who. Maybe we activated Wang for Laettner on IL, but if not, maybe Shandon plays a little PF b/c we don't have anyone else...

atleast we're going against Clarence Weatherspoon @ only 6-7 and no real threat

First Game out this season for Haslem...Only Damon Jones of our starting five participating in every Heat Game so far!

It's gonna be a tough game and we had a long break since the last game (to me it seemed like a week...:rolleyes:)!
I predict:
Heat 110
-
Rockets 103

Haslem has a grade 1 seperation and is questionable for tonight

hopefully he gives it a go. Zo and Wang as our only backups does not sound promising at all. And this IS a big game. We are still tied in the loss column with Pheonix and that means every loss is magnified

Alonzo vs. Mutombo and Jeff Van Gundy. :biggrin:

I hope Haslem plays this game game because we will need him alot but this provides Zo an oppurnity of what he can do in important minutes.

We needthis win bad so we can claim the #1 best record in the NBA.

The Rockets are one of the most inconsistent teams in the NBA. Sometimes they go on 8 game winning streaks, other times they go on 5 game losing streaks. You can never know what the Rockets will put out of their bag, I hope we really win this game.

I expect a loss, especially if Haslem can't play like himself. We are due for a loss anyway, and it could wake us up for the Suns game on Friday. We really need to keep pace with them if we want home court, and I think we need it if we reach the Finals. Maybe TMac will shoot like crap, and Shaq will go off on Yao, and DWade scores 30, and the Heat will find a way to win.

Why?

They're without Juwan Howard and they dont have anyone like Zo on their bench!

I wanna see a shaq zo starting lineup so bad!
we don't have haslem, they don't have howard... that makes us even.

and i think we're much deeper that they are inthe frontcourt... shaq, zo, doleac should be enough to combine for 96 minutes.

plus sura and tmac haven's played extremely well lately, i expect a tough win.

i dont agree cause in this current win streak, eddie haslem and DJ have all had horrendous nights, and we still won every game easily (except 1 or 2)!!!!
i mean it will be a tough game reguardless, but we can still do it!!!
