    I feel bad for Westbrook this game. He's getting swarmed on every play meanwhile nobody on OKC can afford to play anything but single-coverage on Durant while he's goes off.
    Not fair at all to call this a supposed showdown....this is a beatdown.

    You have 2 MVPs plus a loaded roster going at a single potential MVP and he isn't even as good as either of the MVPs he's playing. I'd love to see this showdown only if both Steph and Klay were both not playing just to have a level playing field...then we'd see what's up.

    • Game #5: Miami Heat 87 - Toronto Raptors 96

      First time I have ever done this. Let me be blunt. I despise the Celtics.. Knicks Heat and Bulls. Hate em all. The arrogant fan bases of these teams is only outdone by the myopic media that covers and hypes them to be something more than they are.

      Heat come in with McBob on the DL. They sport a fringe allstar PG in Dragic... a very solid but a mental midget in Hassan Whiteside at C and an overhyped sophomore in Justice Winslow. The rest of the Heat's personnel are recognized soley by wives, girlfriends and blood relatives.

      Raps come in with no one of importance hurt or limping. They will start and rotate in the usual suspects. Sully still out indefinitely, Bebe available but unlikely to play (more due to DNP-CD rather than a lingering pain in those ankles). Somewhat predictably our mascot, Bruno, has been assigned to the D League even if this is a home game.


      Starting Lineups

      Kyle vs Dragic at PG - Edge but not as big as you'd think to the Raps
      Demar vs Some dork named Johnson at SG .. pun intended - Big Edge Raps
      Demarre vs Winslow at SF - Big Edge Raps
      Siakam vs Luke Babbit at PF - Slight Edge Heat
      Jonas vs Whiteside at C - Even to favouring Whiteside.
      Raps Bench vs Heat Bench - Big Edge to Raps


      Keys to the Game.

      Kyle has to check Dragic in transition as this is where the Dragon shines.
      JV has to outmuscle Whiteside and get him into foul trouble early. If he does that and he sits for stretches DD could hit 40 again.
      Own the glass on both ends of the floor, make at least 6 from beyond the arc, pressure the Heat as they turn it over 15 times a game.

      Fearless and Completely Biased Prediction

      No Joe Johnson. No Luol Deng. No Dewyaaaaaaaane Wade. No chance. Raps by 6.

      And with the 4th overall pick the Toronto Raptors select..... Scottie Barnes.

        • We should win tonight. And cover the spread

          • Soon as the game starts go at Whiteside, everyone from DD and JV to Lowry and Ross

            Get him in foul trouble, and if this happens
            JV gets 15+ Boards
            DD gets 30+ points again lol

            • Josh Richardson is back for the Heat. He's a good shooter so we'd be wise not to leave him open.

              Otherwise we should be fine for this one, as long as Jonas doesn't get in foul trouble. Whiteside would eat Poeltl alive.
              It’s Ogugua season. Time to gugua.

              • The guy we really don't want to leave open is Babbit. He's a godawful defender, but one of the best 3 pt shooters in the NBA. With Siakim starting I don't see how the Raptors will make the Heat pay for having Babbit on the floor. Much rather have PPat matched up with him.
                If we knew half as much about coaching an NBA team as we think, we"d know twice as much as we do.

                • MFW someone suggests that we change our lineup to match up with Luke freakin' Babbitt

                    Babbit The JackRabbit can shoot 3's like it's nothing, but Siakam has proven to be a good perimeter defender so far. This matchup should be a cakewalk for him.

                    I have us winning by at least 10 if we can get Whiteside into foul trouble. This will be a big game for JV.

                    • Is that really the Heat's starting 5? Babbitt? Johnson? i'm assuming Tyler Johnson? yikes.

                      Remember when they had LeBron, Wade and Bosh?

                          • I'd like to see us try more of that Powell ross combo again in the 2nd quarter..I don't think this is a game where we need derozan and Lowry always on the floor at 36 to 38 minutes..at least try it in the first half it worked great 2 nights ago
