Welcome to the Gameday Open Thread at Blazer’s Edge! This is a place to hang out and enjoy tonight’s festivities with your fellow fans. Treat it as if you’re watching a game at the local watering hole, but hopefully without the language. Expect some disagreements, and a fair amount of changing emotions. But we'll get through it together.

Injury updates: Heat coach Erik Spoelstra offered no firm statement on the availabilities of LeBron James (groin) and Ray Allen (knee) during his pre-game comments, saying only that both would go through warms-up before they decided whether to play or not. Chris Andersen (back/neck) will not play. Dwyane Wade will play.
Update (6:08 p.m.): James will not play.
The usual Gameday Thread rules apply:
1. No swearing
2. No pictures
3. No discussion of unlicensed Internet streaming
4. Be cool to each other!
Hang out and enjoy the game! -- Tim
