Chalmers sits out


Miami Heat starting point guard and Kansas University product Mario Chalmers, who struggled in Sunday’s 90-64 Game 1 loss to the Hawks in this best-of-seven first-round NBA playoff series, sat out practice due to what the team described as a slightly twisted left ankle. He is scheduled to return to practice today, with Game 2 not until Wednesday.

I really felt like the Heat would play the Hawks better than they did in Game 1. Hopefully Mario will get healthier, and they can turn it around. One of the better up-and-coming teams in the NBA right now, the Heat are only going to get better.

What I cannot figure out, is where are all the dominant big men? Look at the rosters of the Eastern Conference. Dwight Howard. Ok, there is one. The rest are either injured or don't exist. Look at Miami, their shooting guard leads their team in blocked shots (as of last week), that cannot be a good sign.

That Bulls-Celtics matchup is like watching four guards/small forwards play and then having a scrub post player in there for cosmetics only. Noah is the Bulls' answer for Perkins/Davis, is that really a matchup we want to watch?
