Feel like this is a game we'd have to try to lose.

This has potential to be a sneaky loss. I hope Lebron comes out with extra purpose because he's playing a former team of his, because if we start off slow like how we have in the majority of the games, this is a team that's disciplined and talented enough to not collapse.

We should have it if we get off to a good start though. This is one of those games that we should only lose if we don't match their effort and intensity. The problem is that Miami is a team that almost always brings elite effort & intensity, and we have been inconsistent regarding that for entire games.

There would be no shame in losing tonight but it's definitely winnable.

Miami coming off a B2B so hopefully they'll be a little tired after playing in Arizona last night

Try to lose? Jimmy put it on LeBron last year as a Wolf. i have seen 4 Miami games and they compete every play, work hard, and are blue collar. Jimmy does exactly what they need like when he was in the playoffs last year. They better come here and try to win, and even then I expect the best game of the year tbh

Just a sobering reminder that Kelly Olynik pulled out the arm and dislocated a shoulder of Lebron’s former allstar big teammate Kevin Love before. AD just had a nagging shoulder pain...

I went on Facebook just too check out the fires near my parents place and luckily they're ok and I noticed we're playing today so killed 2 birds with 1 stone so to speak?

Hope it's a fun game

Butler out scored LeBron by 3 points and his team won by 4. Not what I would call "putting it on LeBron." That was also the Lakers 4th game in 6 days. They haven't played since Tuesday. And this lakers team is much, much better than last year's.

If we can keep Jimmy from going off, we should be able to win this game.

I can’t watch the game so I’ll be checking in on the game thread. The return of the Kuz, is what I hope for in this game. I think this is a trap loss.

I don't think we have a player on this team that I don't like ... Except maybe Bron. I'm a Kobe fan all the way :)

Oh wait... Howard I forgot my bad

Riles has done a nice job at resurrecting this Miami team from the dead. An improbable task. Not sure how he pulled it off so quickly.

Bron's kicks look like orthopedic shoes
