I thought David was back last night so i thought he would do a recap, but ill throw a recap/pregame for tonights game as well. 

Lasts nights beating of the Warriors was a tale of 2 halves. The first half the Heat played ok, but had a lot of defensive mishaps, along with some good Golden State shooting. They were tied most of the way until We nailed a 3 at the end of the half to go into halftime up 3. But in the 3rd qtr is when everything took off. Its like the Heat took their feet and slammed them on the accelerator. They started running and it they just went on a sick run which put them up 18 out of nowhere. A few nice dunks from LeBron (including a nice alley-oop from Wade) brought the Oakland fans out of their seats. It was nice to stay up late for this one. LeBron sat the whole 4th qtr as the game was way out of reach. 

Both LeBron and Wade were teetering on a triple double, and if they played the whole game we could have seen an unprecedented event of 2 players getting a triple double. It was that close. In the end the big 3 stepped up and had a great game. Dampier is also looking more comfortable with every game. He really hustling on the boards. It was nice to see Dorell Wright doing so well also. I always loved him on the Heat and never wanted to give him up but we knew what we had to do. 

On to tonights game against the Kings. Miami comes into the game riding a 7 game winning streak to face a Kings team who is one of the worst in the league (5-15). Although their record dosent show it, they have a lot of young talent on this team. Tyreke Evans is going to be a stud in this league for along time, but he has been hampered lately by foot injury. They also drafted DeMarcus Cousins in this draft who could turn out to be a real beast if he plays with his head screwed on. Sacramento snapped an 8 game losing streak on Wednesday against Washington. 

 

  • The Heat have beaten the Kings in 12 of the last 13 meetings
  • Evans, who is averaging 17.1 points but shooting only 39.7 percent, had an MRI on his left foot Friday, but the team said he will play through an inflamed arch and be on the court Saturday.
  • The Heat lead the NBA with 13 double-digit victories, and the winning streak is Miami's longest since it won nine straight from March 20-April 7.

Tipoff from Arca Arena is set for 10:00.
