SA and the 3 lets me believe it is not over till it is all zeros.

It's looks over, Manu with silly passes and turnovers.

Wade going nuts even if Spurs lose this guy I don't see Wade hitting that shot all series. Spurs had a chance to basically end this tonight and didn't do their job.

Its a tough spot to be in if you're Pop. At what point do you severely limit his minutes for a better option? Its not like he needs to find his shot for the next series.

You have to be crazy to think Wade isn't going to go off when he's being guarded by centers. Really nice to see him have a great game and take a lot of pressure off of Lebron as far as the media is concerned.

Tiago Splitter's terrible rebounding and terrible ball handling allowed the Heat to pull away in the 4th.

What? Why blame the role player in Splitter? Why doesn't Duncan/Parker/Manu get the blame just like James/Wade/Bosh do?

Yeah, he just trusts him so much. They've been together for so long, so I'd expect it's difficult for him to go another direction.

But the right move now is to go with Green or Neal more often.

James, Wade and Bosh did tonight what they were always supposed to do when they formed in 2010.

The question is, Wade has sucked awfully in the previous 18 playoff games, he erupted tonight. Will this happen again? Or will he fade?

He clearly looked healthy tonight or maybe he just played well. But I'll take my chances with the 18 crappy ones over the miracle worker he was tonight. Just like the Spurs had a perfect win on Tuesday, the Heat had a PICTURE perfect win tonight. Literally Wade/LeBron/Bosh/Allen scored almost 100 points, almost ALL of their points tonight.

Whats the chances that happens again? The same chances as the Spurs had of making 16 threes again.

Classless is the word. It's the same thing as Belicheck running up the score in garbage time. That doesn't make the other team very happy.

The Heat should be very scared for Game 5. The same reason the Spurs should've here. This wasn't a close win for the Heat. Everything went their way. Each one of the Big 3 played perfectly. Look at the stats. It's like harmony.

That's not going to happen again. It hasn't happened once in the entire postseason.

It's much easier to win 2 in a row if the first win was close. The Heat were ashamed by their effort Tuesday and really came out with fire tonight. I don't think they would've had they lost by 2 or 3 on Tuesday.

Wade was definitely the MVP of this game. You can see the confidence in his shot and he didn't look hurt at all.

zn23
06-13-2013, 11:46 PM
What this game really proves is how irrelevant that 92% stat for game 3 really is.

Is there any doubt that Miami has all the momentum with the big 3 dominating the way they are? The Spurs will need some kind of miracle for game 5, maybe waking Ginobili up?

Jarvo
06-13-2013, 11:46 PM

Been calling for one or both for them in The Spurs since early this season Pop will make them so much better and good to learn from Duncan.

It's been happening for a month now with the Heat dating back to the Pacers.

After Game 1, the Heat were done. After Game 2, the Spurs were done. After Game 3, the Heat were done. After Game 4, now the Spurs are done.

someone's butt is sore.

How about Green and Neal shooting all those threes at HISTORIC pace. thats ********. as of right now, big three from SA not playing great in all 4 games - i.e. they are relying on everyone else to contribute.

more like if two of the big three are playing well, its gonna be MIA's series.

During the crucial moments of the game wade stepped up and James was on the bench. Then he comes in and goes on one of the biggest stat padding sprees in MBA history.

The one thing I will say if the Heat win the Finals, is that it's really impressive for them to suck all postseason and then turn it on last minute and still win.

Although they pretty much had two bye rounds in Round 1 and 2 and barely got by the Pacers. But what we've seen here is that this Heat Big 3 is NOT going to last as long as people thought it would. This has went from the possibility of an all-time great playoff run to barely getting by to winning the Finals. Which is still fine. They won.

But for Wade and Bosh to pretty much have 1 good game all postseason says something. And to hear analysts so shocked that they did play so well is an indictment of Miami's core' decline.

Bro that was the biggest bs 30 points I have ever seen. Lebron is the biggest stat padding ***** *** ***** I have ever seen. This is exactly why stats are bs. During the crucial moments of the game wade stepped up and James was on the bench. Then he comes in and goes on one of the biggest stat padding sprees in MBA history. This is exactly why I can't stand his ***** ***. The dude is the false profit of MBA superstars and anyone who denies that stat padding spree we all just witnesses is a blind lebron worshiping nutthugging fool.

Lebron got a huge break early in the 4th quarter. Him playing out the 4th isn't a huge deal. Not like he was playing that hard at the end anyways.

Even last game when the lead was ballooning every single minute. Pops pulled all his starters and Spo still had the Big 3 in. Why? Im not sure. Maybe they needed more practice?

Classless is the word. It's the same thing as Belicheck running up the score in garbage time. That doesn't make the other team very happy.

The Heat should be very scared for Game 5. The same reason the Spurs should've here. This wasn't a close win for the Heat. Everything went their way. Each one of the Big 3 played perfectly. Look at the stats. It's like harmony.

That's not going to happen again. It hasn't happened once in the entire postseason.

It's much easier to win 2 in a row if the first win was close. The Heat were ashamed by their effort Tuesday and really came out with fire tonight. I don't think they would've had they lost by 2 or 3 on Tuesday.

But 2 out of the BIG 3 have shown up pretty consistent in the playoffs since being together, its hard for 3 guys to all play at even high level all at once but MIA does it pretty well, to the tune of 3 straight FINALS trips


and who cares if POP would have kept his starters in or not and same with SPO, you play until the final second its been that way forever

you lose by 30 on that teams floor then its okay to post a double digit victory on that same floor given the chance, its the nature of sports, the HEAT feelings were hurt after the worst playoff loss in history with the league MVP

the revenge(run up the score) factor will always exist, book it

The resilience of the Heat is unmatched. Even I started to doubt them especially Bosh and Wade. They both played tremendous tonight. I originally picked the Heat in 5 before the series because I thought Wade and Bosh would wake up. They finally did tonight. I think the Spurs are done now. No way they are going to get another win in Miami and even Game 5 is not given to them.

Bosh and Wade have both majorly sucked. This game was a big turning point for the series and for the future.

You have to ask the question - who is Miami going to be going forward? Say they win this Finals. They have 2 championships. Is Wade going to be this guy tonight or is he going to be the 14.3 PPG guy all playoffs? What about Bosh? Is he going to be aggressive or pretend he's a shooting guard?

Don't know if anybody noticed but when Wade really got it going in the first half Spo rested Lebron a lil more than usual to let him to his thing. Same thing in 2nd half.

Smart move by Spo to maximize the hot hand. Reminded me of their first season together when he would just let them take turns.

Not true. Miami looked invincible this season. They've looked highly vulnerable this postseason.

You're telling me a Miami team with a diminished Wade and soft Bosh is going to get past a healthy OKC? A healthy Chicago? Even a healthy Knicks team (with Melo, Amare and JR at 100%), would give them a run for their money.

This will not be a sure thing next year for the Heat. Not at all. Not after this postseason.

Wade was hurt last year? That's news to me.

Chicago will be WAY better next year than two years ago. Rose was young and now that team is seasoned together without him. Noah is better. Deng is better. Boozer is better after this year. Butler is there now.

Don't be so cocky about your team going forward. I'm not trying to make the Knicks relevant. But it's not fair to judge the Knicks when they were raped by injuries this postseason. Melo had a torn shoulder. Smith needed his knee drained. Amare was out almost all of the playoffs and Chandler needs neck surgery.

You had ONE injury to Dwayne Wade and everyone else is healthy. Health is key in the playoffs. And Miami coasted this year in a Rondo, Kobe, Westbrook, Rose-less playoffs.

Stats from the first three games? Check yourself. Those are stats for the ENTIRE playoffs. That's how bad Bosh and Wade have been all playoffs against Milwaukee, Chicago, Indiana and San Antonio.

I agree Bosh's stats will suffer as #3, but the guy seems like he's scared of rebounding. How do you go from 11 boards a game to 6? I understand his role is to play more on the perimeter, but his downfall in aggressiveness from Toronto is astounding. He was revered as an elite player in Toronto and an offensive force. He hasn't been the same this year.

Wade came out of NOWHERE tonight. He's looked unhealthy and as done as T-Mac/Carter did years ago. There's no telling how he'll recover next year. He's going to be 32 years old. That's not young.

If Wade was this awful all postseason, how are the Heat going to win not 6, not 7, not 8.. when he's 34-35 years old? They're not, because other teams will rise like OKC, Chicago and Houston (w/Howard) who are much younger.

I hope so, because this is sad to see. Manu's body has just taken a beating over the years, and we have to remember that he's turning 36 next month.

For the Spurs to win this, he's going to have to have a good game (like 20 points) sometime soon. He's been shooting like 35%, and his ball handling has been extremely sloppy. Hope he picks it up.

To me, he should be putting up at least 22-25 ppg this series. I mean the Spurs are playing him 1-on-1 (never doubling) and giving him 5 feet of cushion. For a player of his standards, that's almost an insult. He looked great tonight though, so hopefully for Miami he can keep it up.

He's averaging 18.8 pts per game this series. Not 22-25, but credit the Spurs. I'm not saying he hasn't struggled, because he has, I just think his situation is overblown by some saying he's done. It's insulting to Wade, and I'm glad he showed up in a very big/superstar way tonight.

That 18.8 is including tonight's game. But I agree, Wade is still a very good player, he isn't done by any stretch, but for a superstar his play has been unacceptable for pretty much these entire playoffs.

Hopefully this jump starts him. The only reason why I think so many people are making a big deal of this, is that if it were Melo, Kobe, Durant, etc. this forum would by destroying them for 1 bad series. Not trying to start anything but he was not close to being a superstar against Milwaukee, Chicago and Indiana.

Again though, I agree with you, he isn't done, probably won't be the same player like before, but he's still a great player.

3 blow outs= fantastic series?

They aren't traditional blowouts. All 4 games have been close at halftime, and 2 have been close in the 4th.

Most haven't come down to the wire, but there have been some great moments and stretches of 2 teams slugging it out. I've been entertained. Tony Parker alone is good for 2 circus shots a game.

Also Yes the heat should still trade Wade or Bosh or Both. 1 game does not take away from the rest... The heat could trade those guys and get much better player and put themselves in a much better position for years to come...People saying how about now because Wade had a great game does not cover up how bad he has been and how the big 3 have turned into the big 1. James has covered up a ton for the lack of play of everyone else. He has done so all his career for all of his teammates...This guy has not had much help during these playoffs and its about time the big 3 actually looked like the big 3.

Damn the Spurs didn't look like they wanted it, outside of Tony in the first half. Credit to LeBron and especially Wade and Bosh they stepped up big time and if their Big 3 hit like that it will be hard to win a game no matter who you are. The Spurs did a bad job on D giving up both the Jumper and the Paint to both guys.

I felt like we got a way from the 3 in the 2nd half and Tony got exhausted. Overall we will loose if we loose the Turnover and Rebound battle like that. I think we hav a good shot at game 5, but even so closing it out will be though. But we need to play with way more urgency and my god find a way to get Duncan the ball down low.

Give Miami tons of credit they came out strong and kept hitting those punches in the 4th while the spurs started to miss their swings.

I don't care how great Wade and Bosh played tonight. They were inefficient in the Pacers series, and the first 3 games of this series. One of them has to go. I'd prefer if Bosh goes and they try to pursue Dwight Howard. Seriously, Miami will not beat Bulls/Pacers next season with minimal changes.

they'll be fine. just have to pace wade in the regular season. can't have him all gimpy when the playoffs are starting, that's when the heat look vulnerable. when he's fine so is the team.

That's not going to cut it. You can't have Wade on the team just for the playoffs. If he's not as good as he used to be, take a pay cut and accept your role. If Wade can play like this for the remainder of the playoffs, great. If he doesn't, still has to go.

all that matters with this team is the playoffs, the regular season and playoff seed doesn't matter at all, when wade is healthy this is the best team in the league hands down.

Wade's knee isn't going to get better. Sorry, he's always injured. Miami can't take risks of having Wade on and off. That's not how the NBA works. If Wade and Bosh struggled this season, what makes you think they'll be better next season? Micky Arison can probably keep them all because he's making money. However, how do you expect them to keep winning? They haven't won this year either.

well we obviously disagree, but it doesn't matter because the heat won't be trading any of the big 3 next year anyways no matter how much you want them to.

At this point I would just be happy if he wouldn't hurt us......... and if he would stop with those absolutely stupid 3 Pointers. If he had a Manu game in him he would have shown it by now. What we saw in Game 3 is probably what is possible for him :( Which sucks because Tony wears down against this defense if he has to handle the ball all the time.

When is Wade not injured? Injury can't be an excuse for a player whose always hurt.

At this point, Wade is just a very inconsistent, washed up, injury prone player living off LeBron's greatness and taking up nearly 1/3 of Miami's salary cap.

He was the best player in the world going into the playoffs.
He was the best player in the world going into the finals.
He was the best player in the world after game 3.
He was the best player in the world after game 4.

This series has been very easy to predict thus far. I had a split in Miami, Spurs win 2 out of 3 at home, and than anyones guess from there. I'd say if it ends in 6 than its the Spurs and if it goes 7 its Miami.

One thing I will bet against is Dwyane Wade having another monster game like he did last night. I just can't see it happening again. LeBron will continue to dominate.

One thing you have to take away from this series is that old cliche, each playoff game is its own series. What happened in the last game has absolutely zero impact on what will happen in the next.

What are you talking about? Wade averaged 21 points, 5 boards, 5 assists, a block and 2 steals on over 52% from the floor before he was injured. How in the WORLD is this washed up? Or better yet living off LeBron? Wade isn't James, but he's extremely integral to the Heat's success. Has he struggled since his injury against top NBA talent in the playoffs, yes...But he's grinding it out and finding ways to contribute and in the 2 biggest games of the post season for Miami (Game 7 against the Pacers, and last night's must win against the Spurs) he's come up HUGE.

Lance Stephenson and Danny Green aren't top NBA talent. Its not like he's been going against Tony Allen out there. I understand its a team defense but theres no reason Wade can't go off on these guys. A healthy (or younger) Wade tears those guys up.

I think I might be one of the lone Heat fans to say this, but Wade has no reason to be like this every game or at least close to it. He played like this in game 7 against Indy and now. He has it in him, but he goes through stretches of games where he looks so disconnected from the game that he probably should not be playing. I dont even think it is the knee anymore and it has to be something else.
