Yeah it's a must-win game - but not for us.  Check out what DWade said in between his T-Mobile commercials.

``We have some big games coming up at home, and we have to try to take care of them,'' said Heat guard Dwyane Wade, who returned to the lineup Sunday after missing four games with a strained left calf. ``If we don't take care of home, then we will find ourselves out of the playoff [picture] and unable to get back. . . . Tuesday is a must-win game for us.''

Well snap...

I guess the question is now what?

On Saturday we staged an LL Cool J-like comeback against the Pistons without Monta and with an injured Biedrins...but look at it this way.

GSoM Friend Tim Kawakami points out that we're doing better without our "trio" - Monta Ellis, Corey Maggette, and Andris Biedrins.

While I have no beef with Maggs and his play this year, I will say this about #8.

And for Andris?  Well..his play as of late can be summed up by the picture below.

Yippeee.

Do we stand a chance against a team led by DWade and fighting for a playoff spot?

...probably not.
