A Trap Game in the NBA?

If there is a such thing as a trap game in the NBA, tonight’s game is definitely that. It pits the 7-0 Boston Celtics against the 1-7 Miami Heat. On paper, it’s on obvious blowout. The Heat are terrible this year. They have little bench depth, Shaq is getting older, and Pat Riley is losing his mind.

But, one good thing about the 1-7 Heat is that they have one of the best players in the NBA, Dwayne Wade. This will be Wade’s second game back from offseason surgery. Wade instantly makes the Heat better than their 1-7 record indicates.

If the Celtics played close the whole way and lost on the last shot, I wouldn’t be mad or surprised. This Heat team is better than their 1-7 record. It has to be. They’ve got Wade, Shaq, Jason Williams, and Ricky Davis, among others. That alone should help. They sure could use James Posey though… 

On a side note: It’ll be nice to see old friends Ricky Davis and Mark Blount return to face the Celtics as members of the Heat. I haven’t had a chance to see Davis or Blount live in their new Heat uniforms, so that will be interesting to see.
