Wolves After Dark: Opening A Game Day Open Thread Early, Or Wolves V. Heat

We talk to the night. It whispers back.

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

Here they come. Destroyers.

And yes, the Super Bowl ad stole the idea.

The Miami Heat enter tonight's game against the Wolves on a binge of wins that has placed them near the top of the big rock candy mountain. BEHOLD!

PTS/G: 103.8 (5th of 30) ▪ Opp PTS/G: 96.6 (12th of 30)
SRS: 6.98 (3rd of 30) ▪ Pace: 90.6 (23rd of 30)
Off Rtg: 112.9 (1st of 30) ▪ Def Rtg: 105.1 (12th of 30)
Expected W-L: 41-15 (3rd of 30)

Also, pregame dunks are rumored to be a) important and b) threatened. It is likely they are neither. Here's a slam dunk:

This massacre is going to take place on NBA TV for the entire country to see. Hopefully the Heat will be tuckered out from their effort against the Knicks. Maybe they'll be depressed when they see all the fresh snow.

Does anyone out there practice? If so, that might be helpful, as well.

Speaking of New Orleans, and wondering if going to a Heat tilt right now should be viewed more like a work of art than a basketball game, do you think we should shut up while LeBron is on the court? Or should we just talk over the world's greatest while he's doing his thang like these yahoos:

Let's keep it down people. Artists are at work.

BTW, Jon Cleary is everywhere. He's worse than Waldo.



PUBLIC SERVICE REMINDER: If you see Jon Cleary performing in a small bar, please shut up and take note of what is happening in front of you.
