Raiders of the Lost Season
On March 2, the Miami Heat finally played its best half of basketball of the season. Then everything went to shit. Miami squandered a 23-point lead to Ron Artest and John Salmons Sacramento Kings that night -- the worst collapse in a season filled with collapses. So to recap, Miami blew a 23-point lead to a team that features a guy who incites mass riots and a dude named for a fish.
Said Dwyane Wade after the epic loss: Good teams find a way to win, and bad teams find a way to lose. Its safe to say this Heat team has perfected the art of finding ways to lose. This Heat team has become the Indiana Jones of searching for ways to lose, except without all the Nazis and melting faces. And things have gone from bad to worse with the news that Dorrell Wright is now out for the season with a knee injury. Tonight the pain continues as the Heat face Dwight Howard (a.k.a. Superman) and the Orlando Magic at the American Airlines Arena. Tip-off is at 7:30.
