The Miami Heat (19-20) will look to snap a two game losing streak tonight when they host the Celtics (25-15) at the American Airlines Arena. 

The Heat are just 9-12 this season on their home floor, coming off a tough 103-99 loss to the Denver Broncos on Tuesday night. The Celtics, meanwhile, blasted the Pacers 135-108 last night. The good news, though, is that the Heat face Boston on their second end of a back to back. However, that didn't seem to help Miami when they faced the Nuggets in the same situation two nights ago. 

Wade and Waiters

Dwyane Wade and Dion Waiters played the full fourth quarter together on Tuesday. It will be interesting to see if Erik Spoelstra opts for the same approach against Boston if the game is close down the stretch. 

Even though Wade and Waiters were both on the floor in crunch time, Spo put the ball in Josh Richardson's hands in the late minutes. J-Rich shot just 4 for 12 in the game, and several fans questioned the approach. 


 

So long, Haslem?

Udonis Haslem said this week he's 90 percent leaning to retirement at the end of the year. It would feel appropriate for Udonis to step away at the same time as D-Wade. 

Where do put Udonis on your list of all-time beloved South Florida athletes? Donno and Friedo Show producer Alex Solana had the audacity to rank Haslem above Dan Marino on his list.
