This team has all the ingredients to give us fits.

The best PG in the league, a young, athletic, energetic PF/C combo....and worst of all...Jamal Crawford.

Don't see us walking out with a win based on current levels of play.

That 2nd unit will give us major problems. We all know Crawford is one of, if not the biggest Heat killer, and Bledsoe will give our D fits, especially with how we've played of late.

Imagine if we had Bledsoe instead of Cole at the PG. Or even Rio.

Damn that would be one athletic ass lineup with EBled/Wade/James....

Don't forget Butler, who played really well against us in China. He and Willie Green will be left open like they're warming up by themselves. Lamar Odom will forget that he has a negative PER right now and make plays on us. Turiaf and Hollins will be annoying. Barnes might jump in for some extra annoyance.

Prediction: PAIN.

And lets not forget that although we call Jamal Crawford the biggest Heat killer, we dont usually call the great players that since they are always capable of killing you. But if we did, CP3 would be right up there. He rarely doesnt have a huge game against us.

Did Samardo go crazy on us too? I remember Alonzo Gee dismantling us.

Career-high Watch: Eric Bledsoe, 23. That's in major jeopardy. That is, if Paul/Crawford let him.

Just looked at the schedule. Not only do we play on the 2nd night of a back to back in Denver, where we always get blown out, but Denver will have had 2 days off prior to that game.

Isnt there a crazy stat like no eastern team that has games on the west coast, then travels to Denver, hasnt won in Denver in like 10 years? Maybe its just the Heat, but I feel like i've heard that stat before.

Pretty sure it's on a back-to-back, but yeah traveling east from the west coast to Denver. Not sure how long, but it's something completely absurd. There could be different versions of the stat floating around, like maybe its just on a back-to-back for all teams, while any game going east for east teams. I'm sure someone will tweet it before the game.

Was thinking, this team often seems to win the few games when they're counted out beforehand. Denver has been struggling in the early season. Wouldn't be completely shocked if we squeaked that one out. A Heat win in Denver feels like a unicorn. Almost hard to believe it's possible.

@IraHeatBeat Dwyane Wade did not go through shootaround today due to left ankle he hurt in Houston. Will get Xray later. He thinks it's a deep bruise.
@EthanJSkolnick Wade getting an x-ray today on left foot. "I want to play tonight." Stepped on Bosh on Monday.
INSIDE SCOOP: Mike Miller will start tonight. You heard it hear first.

Not sure why they're doing the XRay today...
