Wow the Heat looked strong last night. Even with Lebron out most of the 2nd half, the additional scoring provided by Allen & Lewis makes a huge difference. They can afford to rest both Wade and James for short periods of time without looking lost on offense. I wonder if the Celtics can keep up that level if intensity for the entire year, or if they shot their wad trying to defeat Miami at home on their ring ceremony game. And I know its only the first game and I know the Heat lost their first game with the Big 3, but the Heat lost to the Celtics - one of the power teams in the Eastern Conference. LA lost to a Mavs team without Nowitzki. Nash looked lost and their defense was horrible. Question: Was KG's snub of Allen that big a deal?
