The Heat take down the Wizards

Well the Heat came into this game having won 20 of their last 25 games against the Washington Wizards and they sure didn't disappoint. The Wizards held the Heat off through two quarters but that wouldn't last for long as Dwayne Wade really got his team going. Out scored in the first half, the Heat came out in the third quarter firing away. Starting off the third quarter with an 11-1 run, the Heat began a scoring frenzy as they outscored the Wizards 24 to 13 in the third quarter and 25 to 14 in the fourth quarter.

Dwayne Wade picked up 15 points in the third and 14 in the fourth bringing his total to 41 points, 5 rebounds, 5 assists and 3 steals. Michael Beasley was the second top scorer for the Heat and his total came to 15 points, 5 rebounds and 2 steals. On the other side of the court, Gilbert Arenas had 12 turnovers breaking the all time record for turnovers in the NBA.

What else can you say? Wade had a great performance and led his Miami Heat to their sixth win of the season. Great job Heat!!!!!

Upset in Foxboro

After an amazing win in the Netherlands, the Miami Dolphins made a trip to Foxboro to take on AFC East rivals, the New England Patriots. Miami has had a tough season up to this point, taking on teams such as the New Orleans Saints and the San Diego Chargers was no small task. After an amazing start to the game, Vonte Davis intercepting a pass over Randy Moss, the game seemed to be going well. The Dolphins may have only gotten a field goal out of the interception but it was sure a heck of alot better than a Patriots touchdown, which came shortly after anyways. The whole game was basically a stalemate. Pat White was in on a few plays and showed his amazing running ability while Ronnie Brown and Ricky Williams pushed themselves through the line to pick up six yards here, 5 yards here, and the occasional run around the outside for a 10+ pickup. Brown ran for 48 yards and Pat White ran for 45. Chad Henne added to the Phins success by completing 19 of 34 for 219 yards, no touchdown though.

As I sat on the edge of my couch I couldn't help but give props to Randy moss for the big game he had, I mean, the guy's a legend. As good as he is an as inexperienced as Vonte Davis and Sean Smith are, that match up was a forgone conclusion. I will say that the two rookie corners will get better and that the Phins will have a great secondary for years and years to come.
Go Phins!!!!!!!
