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.
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.
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.
