Ten Games To Watch – #5

Training camp begins next week! We continue to build towards the beginning of the season by counting down the “Ten Games To Watch” for 2009-10. Single game tickets are on sale now!

#5 vs Miami Heat, Wed. Nov. 18, 2009

The Heat are perhaps Atlanta’s most bitter rival in the Southeast Division thanks to last year’s 7-game playoff series and fun times like the infamous re-do game.  The intensity between these two squads always seems to ratchet up a level when they face off (though the closeness of the results may not reflect it), and I don’t anticipate that being any different this season. And with improvements in Washington and Charlotte, division wins will be of optimum importance. Miami doesn’t look altogether different now than they did at the end of last season, but if an oft-rumored deal for Utah’s Carlos Boozer ever goes through it could change things for them immensely.

Match-ups to watch: Joe Johnson vs Dwyane Wade. Was there any doubt?

What do you think?

    To me it wasn’t really a rivalry until a Heat fan started twisting Mo Evans’ words making them look like disrespect to Wade:

    The Heat Fan to D Wade: “Mo Evans is bulking up for u, Turn it up on a nigga”

    The Heat Fan to a Hawks fan: “Chill out buddy. I just wanna make sure my man saw that so he can drop 50 on ur Hawks a few times this yr. Ur boy messed up. Cry.”

    The Heat Fan to D Wade again: “glad I could bring that to ur attn before gym time. getting a lot of hate from hawks fans tho, lol……Bring it on!”

    The Heat Fan to D Wade yet again: “didn’t think things would go this far. lol, ATL is sensitive.”

    Deron Williams of the Utah Jazz: “if u ask me I think Mo Evans just committed suicide! I will be watching Hawks vs Heat that’s 4 long games for him!”

    D Wade’s reaction: “This is comical. Had to laugh at what I jus read via tweet. Some people don’t kno when to keep there mouth closed lol”

    Hasn’t this person ever heard of the saying, don’t start nothing, won’t be nothing. This Heat fan attacked the ATL. Definitely got to be in the house for the Hawks’ counter attack (beating Wade and the Heat and making darn sure Wade doesn’t drop fifty points). Yeah I wanna see these three pick their face up off the floor and eat their own words.

    Wow. Its good to see the entire conversation cause they just started somethin they obviously cannot finish. They think atl is soft, just wait til the season starts and they will be “mouths closed.” Wade knew not to address the right person on this team, he woulda committed suicide. But i believe the jazz and heat have just committed suicide. I wanna see wade drop fifty on our hawks, thats a fantasy that will never come true as long as smith is there. And you know smiths dont take kindly to trash talkers so im thinkin wade will be thoroughly dissappointed. And as far as atl fans being sensitive, just come to a home game and witness the greatness of the highlight factory! Eat ya words boys, eat ya words.
