Game Notes
This is one of the last few interesting regular season games left.  Miami has a shot to win 23 in a row, though Tracy McGrady says the Rockets 22 game streak five years ago, "was much harder."

Paul Pierce and Celtics are not big fans of the Heat and would like the Heat to lose every game for the rest of eternity.

Don't think that happens tonight though.  Heat get #23 and Boston can start thinking about that 7th seed pretty hard.  I'm thinking right around a 97-84 type score.

Was planning on doing more of a thorough write up on this.  Extremely excited about this game and how intense it's going to be.  Been in and out of the doctor today, nothing but good news though!

I also got distracted by Superman II and Caddyshack.
