Eric Spolestra, Dwayne Wade, Michael Beasley, Pat Riley…sorry, unimpressed. Let me break this down for a min or two:
Longest Home Win Streak
21 wins for the first time before what? April
Highest FG % for a quarter
Fewest FG % and # allowed
Fewest Points Allowed
Largest Margin of Victory
3rd Time Ever 2 games over .500
Go back to Miami and try and figure out how to play ball. I am not big on rubbing one in but man I can’t stand the Heat and living off of a Championship for the past few years. Dwayne Wade has RSVPed for like 20 attempts per game. Dick Bavetta comes to his house at Thanksgiving and calls pass interference on his cousins in the family pick up game. It’s ridiculous.
Listen, the Bobcats are actually GAINING momentum. After losing a 20 something point lead on Monday afternoon, they crush the Heat by almost 40. We’re riding a win streak and just not like 1 or 2 points, save Monday, for all it’s worth. The question when this home stand started was: can they gain enough wins so that the West Coast trip doesn’t hurt too bad. Now, the West has to think “Here comes straight fire into our arena. Can we contain it?”
Just wait, sit back and enjoy. If you are a first timer on this site, just remember, we’re the guys standing by when we are celebrating being above .500 at the November 21 mark back in 2007. That’s 6-5 and they didn’t do any better. We are 21-19. I said WE because I feel the energy, I was in the arena and felt the glee of a serious beat down at the expense of a team % points above us in the standings…Orlando, you’re catching us at the wrong time and we are catching you at the right moment. Be prepared!
