CBSSports.com Basketball Podcast: Heat, Celtics in spotlight on opening night

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

I'm joined today by two really good writers from around the league.

First off, we have Couper Moorhead of MiamiHeat.com. Moorhead does great video breakdowns, looking at the Miami Heat and the various situations and schemes they use and encounter throughout the season. An example is a post he has today about Ray Allen and the Heat taking a page from the Boston Celtics' playbook.

We talk about the Heat-Celtics matchup tonight, the growth of the Heat over the last couple of years, and even work in a couple of Jean-Claude Van Damme references.

Then Matt Moore joins me to talk to Rob Mahoney of SI.com. Mahoney writes with our old friend Ben Golliver for SI's The Point Forward. He breaks down the Mavericks-Lakers opener. We talk about the Mavs trying to survive without Dirk Nowitzki, Eddy Curry's impact and how the two teams should attack each other.

Mahoney is also the author of Mavericks Stampede: Dirk Leads Dallas to the 2011 NBA Championship.
