Pacers get 20 from Granger, beat Miami Heat 93-77 - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

Danny Granger  had 20 points and 11 rebounds, Brandon Rush(notes) added 20 points and the Indiana Pacers added to Miami’s week of woe, beating the Heat 93-77 in the worst shooting game of Dwyane Wade’s(notes) career. "We came into their building knowing how good they’re supposed to be," Rush said. "And they just had a bad night."

I'm not going to waste time with "Maybe this is the one that gets their head right." You'll hear no "Maybe this is the one that gets them in gear." No more of that. The Miami Heat are a mediocre team right now. It means nothing in regards to the playoffs, which they will likely make regardless of how bad they look now because they are able to out-talent a largely unimpressive Eastern Conference. It means nothing in terms of the legacy of the Big 3 or this grand experiment. It means simply that. The Miami Heat are an utterly mediocre team right now.

Erick Dampier has a one-year offer from the Miami Heat and is expected to sign it Tuesday, CBSSports.com has learned. The 35-year-old center arrived in Miami Monday night and, pending his passing of a medical exam, will join the team to replace Udonis Haslem, who is out until at least February with a torn ligament in his foot. The deal is for one year at the prorated veteran's minimum, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. 

Good luck with that.
