Gameday Open Thread: Heat vs. Blazers

Brown alert. Tonight, the Miami Heat arrive in Portland to play the hopefully-not-reeling Portland Trail Blazers (7:45 tip-off, Maybe.). A very cranky Blazer team lost to the short-handed Nuggets last night. Can the Blazers come out strong and win a game against one of the best teams in the NBA?

Injury Report: Kurt Thomas is out due to the concussion suffered in yesterday's game so Joel Przybilla is active and expected to play, according to Brian Wheeler on Blazers Broadcasting. The Heat announced today that Chris Bosh is on leave because his grandmother passed away.

Extra: Since we lost Davy Jones yesterday, here's a song that's descriptive of current fan hopes.

The usual rules apply:

1. No swearing | 2. No pictures | 3. Be Nice!
4. Don't discuss unofficial game streaming, even when the game is on ESPN.

And, of course, have fun. Go Blazers! -- Tim
