the Heat's worst nightmare.

This was so incredibly painful to watch when it happened, because I saw the replay while watching at work, and it was one of those moments when you felt the pain through the screen. The extent of Dwyane Wade's separated shoulder isn't known yet, but Miami felt his absence, losing to the Rockets by 10 in Pat Riley's first game back on the sideline. If it is serious, then the Heat may make the playoffs, but they will lose in the first round.

In other notable NBA games, Manu Ginobili was a bad man, ripping off 24 straight points (40 total) against the lowly Hawks in a Spurs win. This is the sick thing about Ginobili -- he can have ungodly games like this, then maybe not show up, then put in the double figures (anywhere from high teens to mid-twenties) that the team needs from him to win. He's just another weapon -- a nice one to have, but this is why San Antonio is there every year, even if they're one of the less exhilarating teams to watch.

So when does Pat Riley take another leave of absence? Saturday?

That's karma in a wheelchair.

Dwyane Wade was the team for the first half of the year... bye bye playoffs.

The Heat have burned out. Twins, dead on.

Yeah, I mean, all of the Heats shots were generated through Wade. He scored almost 30 per game and had about 8 assists per game. Who is left to create shots? Jason Williams? Shaq? It could get real ugly.
