Hot Hot Hoops:
TNT's Kenny Smith added Heat rookie Norris Cole to the pool of players for the Rising Stars Challenge game Feb. 24. Smith also added Knicks second-year star Jeremy Lin to the challenge (I'm kidding, but only a bit).
The NBA modified the Rookie-Sophomore game on Friday night of All-Star weekend for this year; instead of having a team made up of rookies compete against a team made up of sophomores, TNT's Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal drafted players from the pool of first- and second-year players available to create teams. Cole will play for Team Shaq.
Six players will represent the Heat during this year's All-Star Weekend. In addition to Cole's appearance Friday, James Jones and Mario Chalmers will compete in the 3-Point Shootout Saturday while LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh will play for the East in Sunday's game.

CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers have had nights like this at home before, and they've had them this season.

It was not a pretty game for the Indiana Pacers. After losing their third straight game from the Grizzlies on Saturday, Indiana was expecting to put up a fight versus the Miami Heat at home last night.
Boy was I wrong.
Danny Granger went out early in the game after injuring his ankle, which left Indy in a huge hole. In fact, they were already losing big even with him still. With...
