Dwight has had two great games in a row. At the risk of jinxing his next performance what kind of numbers do you think he'll put up Thursday night?

I'm going with 25 points 14 boards and 2 blocks...

Hopefully D12 dominates the Heat interior so thoroughly Miami is forced to put LeBron on him. This will free things up for Kobe and Nash! I would also think it would tire James out some and reduce his effectiveness on the offensive end.

Ron Ron, Clark and Kobe trio should be able to do a reasonable job guarding him...

Key to the game... Dwight avoiding early foul trouble... If he gets hit with some ticky tack fouls early I'm going to mail a bag of sewage to Stern's office every day for a year!

We have to got to beat this team on the boards tomorrow night. This has to be the night where Pau (if he's healthy) and Dwight Howard impose their will and play volleyball on the boards.

Heat are dismantling the warriors right now with Lebron simply going off. I'm having nightmares of what they'll do to us in the open court if we don't get back

Heat playing well tonight in GS, playing swarming defense and trapping ball handlers.

(GS without Curry tonight).

That is when they are at their best, trapping the pick and roll. Also helps that their perimeter players can cover ground like no other team

Lakers turn the ball over a ton so this match up worries me since Miami absolutely swarms you with their ball pressure so i think this game is going to be decided by the turnovers. Low turnovers = win/competitive till the end, high turnovers = Heat blow us out of the water

On a side note i'm calling a triple double by Earl and lockdown D on lebron 8-)

We need to absolutely dominate the boards to have a shot. Dwight and Gasol are gunna have to go off. Kobe can lockdown Wade.

Miami now up 20, I hope GS doesn't allow Spo to sit LeBron the entire 4th.

lakers gonna get run out of the building.

i'd be so shocked by a win that i'd say if it happened, the entire season has officially turned around for the good.

Let LeBron get his. Lock down the shooters. Control the pace. Secure the boards. Take care of the ball. We win this.

I agree.

Going to be a tough game but if we limit turnovers we have a good chance
