22 Free Throws to San Antonio vs 11 For Miami.

NOBODY seems to mention the refs when this is the case. Whenever Miami however, has taken more free throws then their opponent, the first thing this forum says is how the HEAT were given the game.

Wade was fouled many times on his drives, literally mauled by Duncan/Splitter. Fouled on that shot by Ginobli.

Also, I love how NOBODY on this forum is calling Splitter out for flopping like a fish out of water, but if say anybody on Miami flopped, this would have been an overblown issue, THE HEAT FLOP, etc etc

The HEAT hate on this forum is ridiculous.

Props to the Spurs, took advantage of LeBron going out of the game and won, but this was Miami's game to steal.

king james
06-06-2014, 12:19 AM
I'm not even mad at this game. The only thing I can complain about is that Spo should of tried and get Wade and LBJ more of a rest in the 3rd qtr. I think he went too hard with them in the 3rd while the spurs rested their stars in the 3rd and were a little bit fresher in the 4th.

I'm more confident after this game than I was b4 the game if we can be n the 4th qtr of game 2 I will take it and know that we will win it.

Heat Stats Guy here explaining why I think the Heat will win in 6 or 7 games.
1. Lebron always drops Game 1's on the road.
2. Heat are undefeated in the NBA Finals when losing Game 1's, 2006, 2012, 2013 NBA Finals as evidence.
3. Heat hardly drop two games straight under the Big Three.
4. In the Big Three Era, the Heat are undefeated when losing Game 1 in a series.
5. Last three NBA champs have dropped Game 1's: 2011 Dallas, 2012 Heat, 2013 Heat.

Hi all I just wanted to make a couple comments. I am a Chicago Bulls fan. With that said I still like Lebron he is the best in the game right now. But he should have been in that game even with the conditions. If he ever wants to be thought of as being as good as MJ he would need to be in the game. There is no way MJ would have come out even with those conditions. I think that is part of what sets MJ above all the rest.

06-06-2014, 12:11 PM
first things first, I obviously want the heat to win but my instincts tell me spurs in 7. I would LOVE to be wrong.

I felt like this game 1 was a must win simply as all games versus the spurs are must wins. You simply can't give this team an opportunity because they WILL capitalize on it meaning the heat have to give it their 100% all game. Specially when the refs are on your side (I felt the spurs deserved way more foul calls on their favor that simply were not called while we got touch fouls on our favor to keep the game close).

At first I was FURIOUS at LBJ wanting to sit down due to the heat. I'm tired of all the other nba fan bases bashing him but yet he doesn't make it any easier to defend the guy with his prima donna acts. When he came back and this time I knew it was muscle cramps and not due to the heat I stayed shut as I know you can't play even if you want to. He's a 29 year old with legs of a 36 year old with the amount of millage on those legs carrying both cleveland and the heat all these years, can't blame his legs for giving out.

I'm tired of seeing wade do NOTHING when lbj is out for games. Like when LBJ fouls out or in last game out due to injury, it's his opportunity to show the world that he is also capable of taking over games but he never does! sure he show boats here and there with flashy moves, but that 4th quarter closer I used to see isn't there anymore. Idk why I always say to myself "lbj is out? no biggy we still have wade on the court" ... -_-, wade relies on trying to get the whistle way too much. A good quarter of the shots he takes he doesn't even look to put it in the rim but to initiate a bump that never gets called for a foul!

This game 2 coming up is a MUST win, I expect LBJ to try and come out hard. He looked extremely disappointed that he couldn't do anything last night. Nobody has mentioned how they stepped up their defense last night for the majority of the game, mostly coming from a focused lbj forcing the errors. The spurs aren't going to be shooting that well throughout the whole series.

I don't understand why people are saying he should have been out there as if he didn't want to play.

LeBron wanted to play more than anyone, but was in too much pain. If it was pain he could play through, he would have been playing. I don't know what else there is too make of the situation. Are you questioning his judgement of his own pain threshold?

Not taking anything away from the Spurs winning the first game, I'm already focus on game 2.

As crazy as it sounds Game 2 may be the deciding game in the series. 0-2 would not be insurmountable but it sure would be tough meanwhile with a win and going home tied 1-1 the Heat go into the drivers seat.

I can't speak for everyone but sometimes I get leg cramps in the night and when they hit I couldn't stand up if my life depended on it much less try to run and jump. There was also a high school football player locally around two years ago that had to get IV's at halftime and never returned to the game. Basically people will latch on to anything to complain or hate on somebody and like LeBron said yesterday he is an easy target.

06-07-2014, 07:34 PM
With all that is at stake, no way LeBron stops playing in this game UNLESS he just could not.
Cramps come in all degrees. Anyone who says that it's impossible for a cramp to be so bad that it stops a player from playing; is letting his hate for LeBron twist his own thinking into something nasty.

Instead, why not enjoy the splendid play of one of the All-Time Greats?

Yes, Jordan was a prick. But he was still the greatest. Lebron is a self entitled arrogant show off wanna be accepted (jay-z and Beyonce at the nets game kissing up on the sidelines) prick as well.

Absolutely agree with everyone that LBJ couldn't physically play. Hell he could barely stand up. He's lucky he didn't get a worse heat related illness although the pain of a severe cramp is enough to knock down a horse. That Gatorade was so inexplicably stupid for their tweets post game, adds me to the list of being for the Heat. I had wanted the Spurs to win, and then maybe get the Spurs back down to earth with a hoped for retirement of TD , Manu and Pop, but WTH !! Go Heat !!! And somebody tell y'all's trainers that tonic water(has quinine in it) might help him. Of course, the team doctor would have to approve!!

Hey Starter,
Of course your "or they never played ..." is a true alternative explanation.
Perhaps, it would behoove any such non-athletes to NOT think they are so sure of things they in fact can not be sure of (because they just don't know)?

Pablonovi
06-08-2014, 02:20 AM
Lol. Whatever. MJ is and will always be the GOAT. [SNIP]

Hey TheScab,
An example or two for you, followed by a question.

Examples: 50 Years Ago, "the world" was "sure" that Wilt Was The GOAT AND Would Never Be Surpassed.
10 Years Later, it was KAJ's turn to be the "Forever GOAT"

btw, I too believed that Wilt was & forever would be the GOAT. I did (and still do) believe that KAJ is the GOAT; but I do NOT ever claim he can't be surpassed.
IMO:
a) Magic might have done it if he hadn't of dropped out because of his HIV-scare.
b) MJ might have done it if he hadn't of quit those almost 5 PRIME Years.
c) LBJ might do it IF he has another 5-6 more Great Years AND picks up some more "hardware".

An honest, simple question:
Do you honestly believe that there is ZERO chance that anybody in ALL of future NBA history will out-do MJ?

We lose by 19.....Miami had 20 turnovers (Wade/Lebron 12 combined) for 23 San Antonio points....while San Antonio had 13 turnovers for 6 Miami points.....thats a 17 point difference in points off turnovers......thats the game right there......I dont think I'm overreacting when I say that I want more Battier/James Jones and less Chalmers/Cole....and probably less Birdman too....and just for a little stretch I would like to see a uber-small lineup of Bron, Battier, JJ, Allen and Wade or a variation....just to see how it works because it would be tough for San Antonino to guard and with that lineup we would be able to switch every PnR and contain dribble penetration better.....our disadvantage would be postup defense......but I can live Duncan/Diaw postups.........it probably wont happen but taking out Spiltter for Diaw in the starting rotation was a smart move by Pop.....I'm just trying to think of an adjustment that could potentially give Pop headaches if it works out the way i think it can

How about start Cole for defense, and see if Chalmers can be a spark plug off the bench? I think a little of what's messing him up is the constant fight over screens and picks for Parker. I always see him grabbing his hands or shoulder or elbow afterward like he's taking a lot of punishment trying to stay attached to him. Might give him more energy chiming off the bench to shoot and score. I also think with more energy and his longer wingspan he can be more disruptive against Mills who is smaller than Chalmers.

Beasley will be in a suit and tie next game... I can guarantee that.

Offense wasn't the problem in that loss yesterday. We need defense, smart players who can pick up on their schemes and anticipate the passing lanes, give up their body for 50/50 balls..that's not Beasley.

I would also like to see beasley in the startling lineup even if it's just for 3-4 minutes and he gets subbed out. Takes balls to change the rotation up like that instead of the usual udonis can't make an open jumper haslem and shane can't make open 3's battier change into the starting line up. If Rashard starts have beasley come immediately off the bench

I don't want to see chalmers out there at all for the remainder of this series, now is not the time to work him up to get his confidence up

06-12-2014, 06:51 PM
I say start:

Cole
Wade
James
Lewis
Bosh

Bench:
Chalmers
Allen
Battier
Andersen

Start Cole, and see what he can do defensively against Parker to start the game. Since we are playing straight up, now LeBron can lock down Leonard and prevent him from getting going early. Chalmers becomes a scoring spark off the bench next to Allen since we've been lacking bench scoring. Battier over Jones tonight for more defense against Green and Diaw, has more strength to box out than Jones also. Get Bosh some really touches to try and get Duncan on his heels and maybe some early fouls.

06-12-2014, 08:10 PM

Chalmers shouldn't start, shouldn't touch the court..Cole is playing horrible. We need scoring help for LeBron and our 3rd best person to create for himself Beasley won't play ever. Just doesn't make sense. Now Spo plays Cole and Chalmers together. I'd rather Toney Douglas play Smfh

Spo is just showing his true colors. He cant hide behind Lebron forever. At some point in his career he needed to make an adjustment and now its time and he doesnt know what to do. Chalmers should have been the one pulled and not Lewis.

Nah, pulling Lewis was a great move, he's been TERRIBLE throughout the finals (he's been washed up for years actually, and was never a great or even good player). That said Chalmers and Wade have been TERRIBLE too. There really is no one outside of LeBron playing well. But he can't do it all at the end of the day. This isn't all on Spo, there's less talent (than people) think on this team, and I've been saying it since 2010 (when this squad was first assembled). But Spo's inability to recognize when to make the proper adjustments, and exploit mismatches to put his players in situations to succeed, don't really help either (he's def getting out coached, but then, there really is no better coach than Pop). He also failed to integrate Beaz and Oden into the rotation, something I doubt Pop would have had a problem doing.

I feel really bad (and sad) for Bron, cuz as well as he played, he'll get the brunt of the blame (from the Skip Bayless' of the world). I can hear him on First Take tomorrow: "Just doesn't have any fourth quarter intangibles! Can't will his team to victory." And other post-hoc, fact-independent, fallacies that Bayless loves to re-iterate ad nauseam.

I don't really feel like getting into that at the moment (since it's late), plus I have to look @ contract salaries, how they would have matched up in a trade, etc.

Take my word for it though, Pat could have made some calls, and def could have fleeced some teams of some very talented big men (Faried was one guy on my radar, that I think they could have gotten, with other VERY solid pieces to boot, in a multi team deal). There's no way they could have gotten guys like Davis, Drummond, Noah, etc (obviously). But, it doesn't really help that Pat sat idly by either. Thinking this roster was good enough to beat a Spurs team they probably should have lost to last year.

Yeah, by years ago, I meant when the "big 3" first formed in 2010. Ofc, I much rather Pat had never signed Bosh to the max deal in the first place.

And nah bro. There are more talented big men, than there are good backcourt players. Think about it, how many really good 2-guards can you think of? You have hybrid guards in Steph Curry, James Harden, Kyle Lowry, Lance Stephenson, and Dwyane Wade, and tweeners in Manu Ginobili and Andre Iguodala, and not much else. I mean that's off the top of my head (there may be a few more guys out there, Westbrook is def solid @ the 2, even more so than @ the one, and obviously Chris Paul is always great at either position). But you really don't have much else out there. Guys like Monta Ellis, Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard, Joe Johnson, D-Will, and Klay Thompson are seriously overrated.

The reason most people think there's a shortage of bigs, is because this generation of bigs doesn't score as much, and also tend to play lesser minutes. E.g., see most of the really good bigs and how they got treated their first couple of years in the league (Chandler, Drummond, Jordan, Noah, even Kevin Love, though Kev now gets his mins).

Absolutely attrocious. There is absolutely no hunger from this team. This very flawed team finally gets exposed.

1. Inferior coaching. Very predictable offense. Horribly underutilize Bosh who should have been moved to 2nd option.
2. No rebounding or shot blocking.
3. Garbage PG's. Chalmers would be trash on other teams.
4. 3pt shooters can't do multiple things like Mike Miller did.
5. No scoring from the bench outside of Allen. Cole is garbage on offense. I can't imagine how bad it'd get if Allen retires after this season.
6. Wade is getting worse and worse. He whines on everything and usually late on defense. Wake up Dwyane, you're no longer a superstar, barely an all-star these days.
7. Age's catching up. Everybody is a full step slower. The ol' reliable Battier is retiring. He used to be huge for this team. Even Lebron started to show mileages on him. This team can no longer defend the parameter, and this exposes their lack of interior defense.


Big changes have to be made. I'd say everyone is expendable outside of Lebron and Bosh. If Wade wants over 10M/year then farewell. He's way past his prime. Him constantly missing games destroyed the team's rhythm on both ends. And Bosh has to move over him on the chart.

I just hope the time for this team isn't over yet. Riley has built a team to win instant championships and he did succeed. It's interesting to see what things will go from here. Riley's abilities as the team's president will be in yet another test.

Hats off to the Spurs. They want it badly and they're going to get it. What beautiful basketball they're playing. I will congratulate them when they hoist up the trophy. Absolutely well-deserved.

You realize Bosh is averaging (after this game) 4.3 rebs in the playoffs right?

Again, you realize Bosh is averaging 4.3 rebs in the playoffs right? (And that he has NEVER been an above-average rebounder, for his position, safe for 2 out of his 11 seasons in the league.) Bosh is part of the problem, not a solution. I agree Wade is not worth max money, but Bosh is straight garbage. At least Wade shows up during the regular season, Bosh just doesn't show up period.

You're right though, everyone outside of LeBron is expendible. Wade should take less money to finish his career here (where he belongs).

A few thoughts from a 55+ years rabid Lakers fan (who also always roots for great players on any team NOT playing us.
1) The HEAT are not LOSING this series, Spurfection is WINNING it.

a) The HEAT's greatest strength is their swarming D; the Spur ball movement (where the ball NEVER sticks) is just too quick; no D can stop this except a very quick one (like how Westy DOMINATED TP).

b) The Spurs are playing with 9 almost interchangeable parts, they are just wearing the HEATs "less than 5"; especially LeBron who was already trying to do too much.

c) POP, has convinced me he is the GOAT Coach, doing more with less than PJax. This is Spurfection on both sides of the ball. He should get the fMVP.

d) I definitely agree that 4 consecutive years to the Finals has got the HEAT low on battery fumes. (I'd bet that if MJ hadn't of been forced to quit (gambling) he would not have been able to 4-Peat. In their first 3 peat, they lost a bunch more games from Yr 2 to Yr3, and in their 2nd 3-Peat it went down from: each year. There IS a price to pay for continued excellence).

e) btw, I'm picking Westy for 2015 MVP - he has "demon" speed. He'll spend the summer perfecting his aerobic conditioning so he can play max minutes AND his speed bursts so he'll be irresistible on both ends of the court. I bet KD, now having his MVP, will support Westy. I believe the League has never seen this kind of speed.

Good luck going forward; who knows what LeBron is gonna do.

Beasley not even being in uniform is mind boggling imo, he wont give you much on D but he could give some well needed offense. The way the spurs are executing on offense i dont think there's much you can do to slow them down there just playing lights out Bball so the only option is to try and put more scorers on the floor. This coming from a Bball fan watching the finals and wondering why beasley is in street clothes.

Hey MM,
I was rooting for a Gm7 Double OT Thriller from the get go. I'd love to see it still happen.
OTOH, it's not just about the HEAT. The Spurfection ball movement is so exquisite that Miami does NOT have the foot speed to slow that O down; so unless the Spurs have 3 straight way-off shooting nights, then the HEAT are going to have to completely dominated the Spurs D with their O.

The way I see that, the HEAT have to hammer it into the paint, all game long, incessantly for:
1) the highest percent shots and
2) get enough of the Spurs 9 man rotation in foul trouble that late in the games LeBron & co are not more tired than the Spurs are.

Not impossible; would absolutely love to see it. To beat Spurfection, you have to play like an all-time great team.

I agree with the posters who feel that Miami is just not quick enough to put much of a dent into the Spurs Offensive efficiency and scoring. So either:
The Spurs have to go super COLD shooting for 3 straight games; and/or
The HEAT have to just outscore them.

I don't think the Spurs are going to go super-COLD in even one of the remaining game(s); because their quick passing is constantly ending in the hands of somebody wide-open.

Ergo, the HEAT must "fire up the Offensive Funk".

Why so much negativity? So much gloom and doom? Isn't this the Miami Heat? The defending champs? The ones who are in the finals for a 4th straight time? Why all the booing? And fans leaving the games early? I understand no one likes to see their team loose, and much less like this. And the task now is daunting. But hold on! Miami has yet to play their best basketball. When Miami puts it into that next gear, no one can beat them. They are a proud team. Battle tested. And they have too much pride to just let the Spurs finish them off so easily. The measure of a champion is not taking a punch, but in the refusal to stay down. I believe Miami is cornered. And they will come out fighting for their lives. That makes them very, VERY dangerous. We have taken their best punch. But i believe this series in not over. What if- lets say- they scrap and claw and win this next game? Then the next game would be at home. Yes, they lost two straight there. But do u think they would loose three straight at home, again with their season on the line, and the motivation of forcing a possible game 7? Where will the motivation be if San Antonio lets Miami get away with a win on Sunday with the chance to having them close out totally blown? Do you think Lebron has played his best game? I take nothing away from the Spurs. But I think if Miami wins , the complexion of this series will change. The pressure will be on both teams- but the images of last years failure will come back on the Spurs. This series is not over. If there is a game 7, anything is possible. In the beginning,I pointed out the negativity, of the fans, and the funeral services going on in the press. But can u imagine, if the Heat hold off elimination and go home to stay alive?

He doesn't know how to coach offense even slightly

I've started to dislike Wade since last season. If he won't take a massive paycut and play off the bench next season then I'd like to see him off this team. **** loyalty. He's bringing down this team with his diva attitude. He can't be trusted to stay healthy. He can't be trusted to take over when Lebron needs a rest. He can't even be trusted to just follow the playbook. All he does is diva'ing and riding Lebron's back. Whining all the time. Looking for foul calls on offense all the time instead of looking for the best shots. Won't play D, just gamble. Completely disengaged if things don't go his way.

Wade deserves all the criticisms but unfortunately Lebron will be the scapegoat, again. I really feel bad for Lebron.

I agree. He used to be a great player when he was on a mission. He's just too satisfied now. I just wish he had half of Kobe's heart. I wouldn't ever put Wade on the same level with Kobe again.

I want someone with fresh legs and a heart next season. The Wade era is officially over. I hope Riley puts his loyalty crap to rest and builds the best team.

While as a Heat fan, it's brutal to see my team got beat up like that, I'm happy that it did. Everyone needs a wakeup call once in a while.

By the way, this is perhaps the last NBA game for Shane Battier and Ray Allen. I'd like to thanks them for their contributions, professionalism and for playing their hearts out every game. They'll be missed. They'll be great bastketball coaches one day.

Not neccessarily. You just need to demote Wade to the bench and let Bosh be a true 2nd option. There's not enough space for everyone in the paint.

As much as I would love for Spo to be gone as a head coach it isn't going to happen. Spo has to grow as a coach bcuz he has road the the coat tails of the talent on this team for to long. While he may be good in the locker room he has to grow in other aspects of coaching.

If you're a true fan of the Heat, you trust Riley since he has been the architect for the Heat's success. One hiring produced 3 titles, 5 ECFs, multiple MVPs, multiple all-stars, a great group of coaches, etc. Riley's only weakness is drafting.

but thats the problem wade is really done. he cant score by himself anymore. he couldnt even beat manu or green off the dribble.

He needs lebron to set him up if not he is more of a liability.

I know that Beasley is awful on defense, but Spo should have found a few minutes in each game to c if he could have provided any kind of spark. The same goes for Oden. This is the nba finals u try it all cuz there is no tomorrow.

never said i didnt trust riley and that was with a wade looking good and bosh playing good we cant have a older injured wade being a liabilty and then have a old *** bench man look at the team that just beat us older core and young energy off the bench the HEAT are not done winning rings but we cants have old starters and old bench players look qhat it did to the celtics it jys wont work

Cole?....And yes I know Lebron is 29 but 10 years in the league makes that 29 seem older.....The point being....We need to get younger.....and we've should've start doing it last year.......we are a year too late.....and this is what happen

Good question. I honestly don't know. But that guy has to defend well. The Heat need to bring back their defensive identity.

There will be a lot of holes for Riley to fill. Right now how many of Heat players can play good D? Wade has become a liability. Battier is retiring. Lebron started to show the mileages on him. Andersen is turning 36. Chalmers can't defend my grandma and is only good at steals. Bosh is a good PnR defender but will get abused by bigger players (I hope the Heat find a starting center and move Bosh back to PF).
