A Swish Best Served Cold

So you couldn't afford the airfare to Las Vegas for NBA All-Star Weekend, and you're too cheap to fork up for cable. Which means you missed Dwyane "Flash" Wade again become NBA skills challenge champion, one night before teaming up with Shaquille O'Neal to score ten points each for the Eastern All-Stars. Unfortunately that also means you missed Heat forward Jason Kapono become the first Miami player ever to win the three-point shootout. Aw, shucks. Here's your chance to make it up to your hometown Heat — the Chicago Bulls blow into the American Airlines Arena tonight.

Our local heroes will be out for revenge after losing all three previous meetings against the Bulls this season, including a particularly painful opening night, 42-point homecourt blowout (which took place on the same night Heat players and coaches were presented with their championship rings from last season). Ouch.
Wed., March 7, 7:30 p.m.
