The 3 ball is killing Miami. This game wouldn't be close if they could capitalize.

I've always felt that if the supporting cast is sinking their threes, the Heat are essentially impossible to beat in the playoffs. LeBron is more or less an absolute constant. Wade and Bosh have been too (though, lesser versions of their older selves, and with some bad games sprinkled in there). All the rest have to really do offensively is space the court and hit the open looks. It seems to often be a difference maker. It's at times let Charlotte hang around tonight.

I think we can give up on the hope of MKG ever being a good offensive player. He's shown literally nothing. He'll be an amazing defender, however. Nothing wrong with that. Having a shutdown defensive wing is a huge asset.

Bobcats are playing Miami very well. The difference is James as always. Charlotte needs one more scorer and then continue to develop Zeller and MKG. Then they will become a contender.

Charlotte is a poor 3 point shooting team; that's to be expected. Miami is considerably better from deep. They shoot quite a bit more per game and make it at a significantly higher percentage.

Maybe he's tired/sore; because he just missed an at-the-rim put back - like he didn't have enough lift anymore.

Sucks that Al had to get injured. Bobcats had potential to make Miami work hard for it. Without Al this is a sweep. Guess Miami lucks out again.

That Wade three, giving the Heat a 15 point lead; will probably clinch this.
Let's see if Charlotte keeps up their fight - in a loss, it's important for the losing team to do so - it builds the habit, the character that will serve them in upcoming games. Of course, there's still enough time to win; but the Heat tend to play their best D late in games.

Re: the McBob dunk.

THe most impressive thing about it is that he didn't push off at all. No contact with an extended arm at all. Usually on those big time posters from the power guys like Blake, DAJ etc. you get what could be an offensive foul. I feel like those "clean" posters are a bit rare.

Matter.

It's Miami vs Charlotte that's why. Not that Miami needs the help but the refs are going to be very whistle happy in Miamis favor.

Heat have certainly gotten a few more calls, but they've also been way more aggressive. A hobbled Al doesn't help. Having really only one penetrating wing player doesn't help. LeBron especially early on was attacking the rim constantly. I think he got all 8 of his in the first half and 3/4th of them were 100% legit. There was one where there was mutual contact, including him pushing off. Besides LeBron, the FTAs have been really balanced. Just miscellaneous calls, nothing outrageous. JVG who loves to complain about officiating, for example, has not at all.

It happens. The Cats aren't going to win FT battles with Miami, nor should we expect that. Nor would we see it if we had robot refs.

Seeing what Timmy did and how well D Wade is playing; is certainly a strong argument for seriously resting players up for the Playoffs.

I don't like it because it cheapens the regular season; but, it seems like, perhaps following Pop's example; that's what we're going to see more and more of in coming years.

Thoughts?

Based on this game, I don't see the Bobcats winning more than one game; and probably, most likely, going down 0-4. With Wade back, Miami is gonna improve by the game, as they get their rhythm.

Yeah, in Lebron's case; I haven't seen that.
On the other hand, if the coach is gonna leave him in the game; what's he supposed to do? NOT shoot?

No, I've seen stat padding before. But I would not consider what lbj did padding at all. I was actually pretty impressed with what he did today. He didn't have a crazy game or anything but whenever the cats made a run or the heat needed some offense, bron came through. Props to wade too for looking good so far as well

I really doubt Charlotte will win a single game. Wade played great but he's not very consistent. James had a bad game on my estimation. It seems he wasn't himself for a well amount of time. Bosh just sucks. Once again another reason why he should be traded or something. As for the free throws, why are you guys surprised? Bobcats don't really have anyone that garners the attention of others. It's only expected that James/Wade/Bosh are going to grab more calla.

Yes but the days off in between games should really help him a lot in the playoffs.

Hey jerellh528,
Well, come to think of it (hehe) I HAVE seen this claimed by others. I was trying (perhaps not too successfully) to claim that he himself is NOT a stat padder. With his strength and multiple-skills, he could easily get more ppg, for example, but he's constantly passing; the opposite of stat-padding.
