Cooking Up Some Suck

When the Miami Heat traded for Daequan Cook in 2007, he was supposed to become the Toni Kukoc to Dwyane Wade’s Michael Jordan. Cook was to take full advantage of D-Wade’s drawing double-teams and sucking in defenders by draining wide-open threes. But the self-proclaimed “Bail Bondsman” — he calls himself this because he bails teams out with big shots down the stretch, you see — has been a bust. Cook is currently shooting well under 30 percent from the three-point line this year and averaging about four points per game.

The Bail Bondsman and the Heat host the Minnesota Timberwolves Tuesday night at American Airlines Arena (601 Biscayne Blvd). Tip-off is 7:30. Tickets start at $10. Visit nba.com/heat.
Tue., Feb. 23, 7:30 p.m., 2010
