Turn Down the Heat
First come the headaches, followed by dizziness, then fatigue, as legs turn to rubber and a profound sense of fatigue grips the body. No, we’re not talking about getting audited by the IRS – we’re running down the symptoms of acute altitude sickness, brought on when sea-level dwellers (like the Miami Heat) struggle to maintain their oxygen level at elevations over 4,000 feet. Yes, the Utah Jazz have long benefi ted from the ‘Air Up There,’ especially in underdog roles. The homeboys should certainly be on the take tonight when rejuvenated Miami (7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS run at press time) visits the land of the Great Salt Lake. The problem for LeBron and company, however, is playing with no rest at this venue… or anywhere, for that matter.
