Even with a 2-0 lead, I'd have to see it to believe the Heat will come out of their series with the Celtics. The Heat are a show they won't ever win a title with all three of those guys together regardless.

lol wow the Bulls would have to really shit the bed to lose this series.

They missed a shit load of layups and had a bunch of forced shots tonight. They didn't play smart. Chicago is the better team they just have to play smarter. The Heat aren't that good.

The other point is that Haslem and Miller are two variables who weren't even in consideration when this series started. Productive minutes for those guys make this a daunting team, as every thought way back before the season started.

Rose shot 34% from 3 and made a bunch of them, so defenders had to respect that and it opened up driving lanes for him. Westbrook isn't the same threat from 3, so guys give him space.

That's the perception. Both shot 33%.

But Westbrook was a reluctant shooter and Rose would hurt you with it. Defenders had to guard Rose out to the three because he wasn't shy about shooting it. Westbrook generally stayed away from it, so defenders didn't have to go out and get him nearly as much as Rose.

The Heat can win it all. Lebron James is really the closest thing to Magic Johnson we'll ever see. I don't like what he did last summer at all but he's a top player of all time once he gets a few rings.

Not arguing that but you were talking percentages. 33% isn't a great percentage from three. Westbrook gets crucified for shooting too much now as it is. Westbrook takes too much criticism and Rose gets Too much credit IMO. Westbrook needs to play a lot smarter than he does row. Westbrook takes a lot of heat and a lot of people feel he holds KD back. I don't think that is entirely true. KD has to get better at getting open and our third scorer needs to be more consistent. People pile on Westbrook and give KD and Rose a pass because they have a better demeanor and leadership skills. They are all 22 and are a long way from being Kobe, Lebron, Dwade and Dirk. DRose was my regular season MVP too but he's by no means the best player in the league.

That wouldn't make me sad at all but I like Westbrook. I think he will get better. He hasn't been a point guard that long. He has all the ability in the World and has improved every year. He's 22 and has more upside. If he drags his feet on a new contract This is the move that I want. Paul played here two years and was content like KD as long as he can win. I have a feeling they would try this if that happens. Paul still owns a house herE from my understanding.

You are getting it twisted. I never said he wasn't better but they aren't far apart. It's all about perception. One gets too much heat and one too much credit. When Westbrook took 30 shots and lost it was the top story all day. When Rose took like 32 and was something like 1-12 from 3 in a playoff loss he got a pass. Rose is more polished and a better player but the media makes one a superman and one a cancer. They aren't that far apart.

I did mention Rose's percentage, but it was in the context of being a threat from three. Rose's volume from 3 made him much more of a threat than Westbrook from the perimeter, which was my original point way back when. I think they're similar players, but Rose is a better leader and has been more of a threat from outside. Just my opinion. I agree that the criticism has been too harsh on Westbrook. Young players need to go through these issues; it's a rite of passage that every great player has gone through. Rose is in the same boat right now. I think both guys want it a little too much, and haven't translated that desire into enough winning plays.

The cancer thing is brand new though. That's only come in these playoffs, as before that people have been big on Westbrook. I don't think KD has gotten enough criticism, some of those Westbrook wild drives stemmed from KD standing stagnant 26 feet from the basket with his hand up.

Rose gets a pass mainly because he doesn't have KD on his team. People understand that he has to score and take 20 or more shots for them to win most nights. He's actually more unselfish, but has done what was asked of him. It's a blessing and a curse for both guys (having KD for one and not having him for the other).

Yeah, everything became magnified. Our whole team needs to get better though. I think it's wrong it's all heaped on Westbrook. Some of those shots he takes because he can get the best shot. I felt like he could have got a much better shot last night but he didn't want to hear the backlash if he took it. I love KD and Russ but they are being compared to great players right now and have some work to do to get there. Russell's biggest challenge is to accept coaching IMO. he has a short temper and is the little brother of the team.

Agreed.

I hope they can steal one in Dallas to at least wipe the bad taste out of my mouth but I think Dallas smells blood now. Experience won the series for sure. They were relaxed and we were panicking when we were still up 10. When we went to OT body language alone told you who the winner would be.

Your right I'm butt hurt.

No reason to take it out on Durant. He has never had anything bad to say about Seattle and is 100% class at all time. You say it's not the owner, the city or the players but yet it makes you happy. That's great. Go burn down a Starbucks. That guy is the real villain. If Seattle wants a team they'll get one back. They did not support the team in the end and that's a fact. We have on of the best crowds in the NBA right now but if we stop supporting them I'll be the first to say it's our fault.

It is being butt hurt rooting against something that had nothing to do with it. I understand losing a team. I was a KC Kings fan when I was a kid. I never rooted against Sacremento. We lost the team because we didn't support them.

The Baltimore Colts, the Cleveland Browns. Those teams got fucked. Seattle did not.

It would take Westbrook, Selfolosha, Nate Robinson and a draft pick because of salary to work but it really would be a trade to help both teams IMO. New Orleans gets a star to replace a star, also they really need SG help which Thabo would provide. Paul would fit nicely with the Thunder and Harden is firmly planted at SG then as well.

Eh, I think that was the excuse. The fact is your owner sold the team to someone he knew tried to buy the Hornets when they were here and lived in OKC. Seattle wasn't going to the games. If someone knows they can make more money somewhere else and it's home they are going to move. He knew had to have a new arena to attract fans in Seattle. It sucks for hardcore fans but it was obviously a good business decision. I see why you are bitter but rooting against someone like KD solely because the team moved seems stupid to me. He had nothing to do with it. I've heard him say he loved the City and feels bad for the fans on more than one occasion. I just think your hatred is misguided. Along with the idiots who dress up in Seattle gear to root against the Thunder. To each his own. I just think Seattle should use their energy to get a new team if they want it.

Heat is doing what America feared: dominating

BY GREG COTE

GCOTE@MIAMIHERALD.COM

America’s worst sporting nightmare is coming true. Deal with it, haters, doubters, Clevelanders and others.

The Miami Heat is as good as most of the rest of the country feared it might be last summer when LeBron James and Chris Bosh teamed with Dwyane Wade.

The Heat is as good as South Florida hoped it would be during that arena welcome for the Big 3 – the bombastic night that apparently proved so off-putting to many of you but felt so damned right and wonderful to us.

You know what that celebration is turning out to be, by the way?

Justified.

Premature, sure, but also prescient.

That is how it all looks now.

That is how it all looks after Tuesday night.

The Heat met a Chicago Bulls team that could not have been any more desperate to win, but Miami said no as the downtown bayside arena ultimately rocked and swayed.

Chicago, playing ferocious defense, starving to win, led entering the fourth quarter. It still wasn’t enough.

Miami would win, 101-93 in overtime, and the result hugely turned these Eastern Conference finals for a Heat team now up 3-1. The result crushed Bulls fans’ realistic hopes while lifting Heat fans closer than ever to the championship team they have imagined since last summer.

That the game was taut, tense and so, so nerve-wrackingly close made the Heat’s tenacious triumph all the more impressive, and the loss devastating to the Bulls. For Miami the game was huge. For Chicago it was bigger. Much. It was all but must-win.

LeBron stood tallest with 35 points and suffocating late defense that wilted Chicago’s Derrick Rose. Chris Bosh added 22 points and Mike Miller came alive with 12 important points. Dwyane Wade, struggling with his shot all night, would score only 14, but six came in overtime.

Miami in seasons past would not have survived a 14-point playoff game by Wade, but James and Bosh have helped rewrite the survival guide.

James, seemingly impervious to fatigue, played almost 50 minutes and still seemed fresh late when the Bulls were sagging.

Does James ever show fatigue?

“If he does show it to me, I ignore him,” kidded coach Erik Spoelstra.

James deflected the spotlight, simply calling Tuesday, “A great win. A great defensive team win.”

The Bulls, the team with the best regular-season record in the NBA, were fighting for their playoff lives.

The Heat said no. Not here came the statement, not where Miami is now 8-0 in this postseason, the only unbeaten home team in these playoffs.
Bosh was asked earlier this week if he could recall the last home loss.

“No I can’t,” he replied after a pause.

Miami has not lost at the bayside arena since April 6. And an end to that streak Tuesday would have been, to paraphrase TNT’s Charles Barkley, “turrrible” timing. All at once, Heat fans who expected to be howling, “Oh yeah!” would have been left to mutter, “Uh oh” had Miami lost this game.
Now Miami’s 3-1 lead in this series, being honest, means the series is for all practical purposes over.

Chicago has no realistic shot now to beat the Heat three straight games. I have a better chance to use two strands of cooked spaghetti as chopsticks. Chicagoans have to believe it still could happen, of course – or try to convince themselves, anyway – but, now, those fans believe that like they believe this is finally the year for the Cubs.

Miami also figures to be a clear favorite in the NBA Finals vs. (presumably) Dallas.

Getting ahead of myself, you say? Yes. So what. Heat coaches and players can’t do that, at least not publicly. Well I can! And that’s how crucial Tuesday’s victory was. How all-important.

Now it is reasonable to count out the Bulls and to be the first one on my block to note that Dallas is old, and seemingly not far from joining the Lakers, Celtics and Spurs in the NBA’s Used To Be division. The Mavericks’ five leading scorers in these playoffs all are 32 or older. After Dirk Nowitzki nobody on that team scares you on the offensive end. And the Mavs’ defense isn’t nearly as good as Chicago’s.

In other words, the Heat’s path to the championship in Year 1 of the Big 3 appears clear now – where a home loss Tuesday night would have left all of that murky.

It was beyond a physical game, a victory intensely earned.

“We want opponents when they come here to think they’ve just played the hardest game of their life,” Bosh said.

I think both teams might have felt that Tuesday as midnight approached.

Forgive Spoelstra his hyperbole in describing this series and Game 4 as “an absolute bloodbath.” Although if that were so, suffice to say the bleeding Tuesday was mostly Chicago, and that it might be too late to stop it now.

This series hasn’t been about any of the ancillary stuff, by the way. Hasn’t been about how much Miami fans might dislike Charles Barkley. Or about Carlos Boozer disrespecting Bosh, or about Joakim Noah answering a heckler.

This series has been about the Heat being better than the Bulls. Simply that.

Not much better, maybe, but clearly better.

Enough better.

The thing is there is nothing else here to do. We sold out when the team won 23 games and two Hornets seasons where they weren't in the playoffs.

If we stop supporting the team they will definitely move as they should. Time will tell. You can't bitch about a team moving to a market where they will make more money.

That's the thing. Seattle sucked shit for many years after their glory runs and then packed up the team and moved.

I think fans of Seattle can absolutely bitch because they have the capability to be a huge basketball town, but the shitty direction of the franchise while they were there didn't draw anyone.

If the movie sucks, you can't be pissed that the box office didn't roll in the money.

This. It's bullshit that people think the Sonics didn't have fan support in Seattle.

That's like going to a Chiefs game in 2009 and saying, "Gee, this town clearly doesn't give a shit about their football team"

They didn't have good attendance when they were in the playoffs with Ray Allen either. Sure they've had support over the years but not recently. It's a smart business move to move a team from a market where the are the number 3 team to a market where they are the only show in town. We don't know how OKC will play out long term but the short term is off the charts. We could be Portland or we could be Sacremento.

My main points are don't take it out on the players or the City. Seattle is obviously a good sports town but they lost interest and another City swooped them up. No use crying over spilt milk. If you are passionate about the NAB get a new team. If not what are you crying about. If OKC fails like bad guy says maybe you'll get them back in ten years.

This town loves sports and truly is a good sports market. The Dallas fans were remarking that we have the best fans in the league. Rick Carlisle said the same thing. I think even when we suck people will still go to see the stats. Again their are no facts to support it either way. If we don't support them over a 3-5 year period and we are losing money we don't need a team. That's what happened in Seattle and the same should happen to us.

If I was the Kings I would find a market similar to OKC instead of being the third team in town.

That's true. I think it was bad ownership and bad management. Clay Bennett wants to win like him or not.

I can understand Seattle throwing hate at him but not the players who played their like KD or Collison. They had no choice. I'm not saying root for them but licking their tears after a crushing defeat is a bit much.

But whatever. I'm done with the Seattle discussion. I wish the City the best and hope they move on to bigger and better things.

In the last couple of games the NBA conspiracy theorists have been getting plenty of fuel though.
Free throw count was way off balance last night. Rose is getting mugged and no calls.
There was the phantom offensive foul call that gave Derrick Rose the chance to win the game in regulation. He tried to go one-on-one against LeBron and predictably failed.

Mavericks backup center Brendan Haywood was a different man at the free throw line in Game 5 against Oklahoma City. The worst free throw shooter in the NBA this season at 36.2 percent, Haywood made 5 of 6 free throw attempts in the Mavericks' four-point win.

Haywood said he's been working with shooting instructor Dave Hopla from Washington D.C. the last few days and he's helped Haywood improve his free throws. Hopla worked with Haywood before and helped him shoot 72 percent from the line.

"I put a lot of work in. I had my guy come back from D.C. to work with me and things have really worked well the last couple of games," Haywood said. "I'm feeling a little bit more confident up there."

Thank you Milwaukee.

Did Bucks just assure Mavs of NBA title?

Armed with information from the tireless folks at the Elias Sports Bureau, Scott Randall of ESPN Stats and Research followed the dots after the Milwaukee Bucks ended the Dallas Mavericks' 12-game win streak Monday night and found a pot of gold that might interest the Mavs.

Monday was the fifth time in team history that the Bucks have ended a winning streak of at least 12 games. The most famous instance was when Milwaukee ended the Los Angeles Lakers' NBA-record 33-game winning streak on Jan. 9, 1972. The Bucks also ended 12-plus game streaks by the Celtics (1973 -12), 76ers (1983 - 14) and Spurs (2007 - 13).


What do all four teams have in common?

They all went on to win the NBA title that same season.

Here's a look at the Bucks' streak-busters and the teams they sent on to raise a championship banner:

January 9, 1972 - Beat Lakers, 120-104

In January of 1972 the Bucks beat Los Angeles 120-104 to snap the Lakers NBA-record 33-game winning streak. The Lakers would still go on to win the NBA title...

November 30, 1973 - Beat Celtics, 117-93

Two seasons later the Bucks ended another streak by the eventual NBA champions... This time it was a 12-game streak by the Celtics.

January 23, 1983 - Beat 76ers, 107-96

It happened again in 1983 when the Bucks ended the 76ers' 14-game streak... the same season Julius Erving and Philly won their first NBA title since 1967.

March 15, 2007 - Beat Spurs, 101-90

And then in 2007 Milwaukee ended the Spurs 13-game streak. Get this... The Spurs would go on the win the title...

December 12, 2010 - Beat Mavericks, 103-99

So the Mavs should be happy the Bucks ended their 12-game streak last night... Based on stone-cold history, it now assures them of winning the NBA title this season.

Now, about that parade route...

Long after practice ended, there was Wade still on the court, taking jumper after jumper, trying to shake free from a shooting slump. And there was James, standing under the basket, keeping his friend company. All of the other players had long since left the floor.

“Just getting the kinks out,” Wade said. “You don’t become good at this game just because you wake up and become good. You have to work at it.”

They don't need anyone like Harden coming off the bench. One of the big 3 will always be on the floor so there will always be (at least 1) primary scorer. Then you have energy players like Haslem, Miller, Chalmers as the reserves.

Keep doubting and spewing ignorant garbage. Then cry when Miami, once again, beats Dallas in the NBA Finals.

The Mavericks OWN the Heat outside of referee-tainted NBA Finals games. Absolutely fucking OWN THEM. Lebron was 11 for 36 against the Mavericks this year. PATHETIC.

DALLAS -- While Dirk Nowitzki drove for a layup during Dallas' game-turning run to start the second half, he split a gap between Dwyane Wade and LeBron James -- with all three of All-Stars in the air at the same time -- to get to the basket.

Even with Wade's new help in Miami, the Heat still can't beat the Mavericks in the regular season.

Dallas has won 13 consecutive games over Miami since March 2004, and 16 of 17. That doesn't include the 2006 NBA Finals, when the Heat won in six games after losing the first two.

http://espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=301220014

MIAMI -- The streak-busters of the NBA hail from Dallas.

And for whatever reason, unless there's a championship at stake, the Miami Heat simply cannot beat the Mavericks.

Dirk Nowitzki scored 26 points, Jason Terry had all of his 19 in the final 11 minutes, and the Mavericks held LeBron James scoreless in the first half on the way to ending Miami's 12-game winning streak with a 98-96 victory on Monday night.

It was Dallas' 14th straight regular-season win over the Heat, and the Mavericks had been the most recent team to beat Miami this season, too. Dallas has snapped six opponent winning streaks of at least five games this season -- including a pair of 12-gamers, against San Antonio on Nov. 26 and now Miami's.

NBA Finals open Tuesday in Miami with Heat win

CHICAGO— With the Dallas Mavericks defeating the Oklahoma City Thunder 100-96 Wednesday night to close out the Western Conference finals, the NBA Finals would open Tuesday at AmericanAirlines Arena should the Miami Heat defeat the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night at the United Center.

The Heat lead the best-of-seven Eastern Conference finals 3-1. The Mavericks eliminated the Thunder 4-1 in the Western Conference finals.

Under the NBA's flexible schedule for the NBA Finals, the league's championship series moves up to a May 31 start if both conference finals are concluded in five or fewer games.

Should the Heat lose Thursday, a Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals would be Saturday at 8:30 p.m. at AmericanAirlines Arena and the NBA Finals would not open until June 2.

The winner of the Eastern Conference finals will host the Mavericks in Games 1, 2, 6 and 7 of the NBA Finals in the best-of-seven series that is scheduled on a 2-3-2 basis, the lone NBA playoff series with such a scheduling pattern.

Games in the NBA Finals are played on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, with the Tuesday and Thursday games beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern and the Sunday games at 8 p.m.

The Heat defeated the Mavericks 4-2 in the 2006 NBA Finals, the most recent Finals appearance for both teams.

I can see that team competing with the Heat... I do like Westbrook but he is just not a good fit

Agreed. I think they should deal Westbrook.

If NO with Paul or NJ with Williams feel they're going to lose their guys, they have to take that deal for Westbrook right? That'd be pretty good value for the position they're in.

I think Ibaka could be a really nice power forward down the road someday. He can hit the mid-range jumper. I think he needs to work on his offensive post up game. He's got the size & strength for it.

OKC as it stands now is too much a perimeter team. They need some offense down low.

Nice homer article by Cote..

Miami Heat’s LeBron James proves his value is unmatched

BY GREG COTE

GCOTE@MIAMIHERALD.COM

I imagine there is a select group of a few dozen men scattered across America who are all in hiding at the moment. Considering name changes, maybe. Trying on wigs and fake mustaches in front of the bedroom mirror. Perhaps quietly seeking entry into the Witness Protection Program.

They are the guys who voted for Derrick Rose over LeBron James for Most Valuable Player of the NBA.

Sorry, fellas. No do-overs. You all are stuck with dubious ownership of the worst decision since “New Coke.” Maybe the worst sports decision involving Chicago since somebody in 1976 thought it would be neat for the White Sox to wear short pants.

If these playoffs in general, and Tuesday’s Heat-Bulls Game 4 in particular, have shown us anything, it is that Rose is a child dwarfed in the shadow of a full-grown man. And that individual disparity — James dominating Rose all over the court — is why Miami is in Chicago with a 3-1 Eastern Conference finals lead entering what could be a deciding game Thursday night.

Rose is a nice little player. LeBron is a monster.

Rose is the best player on his team. LeBron is the best basketball player on Earth.

Rose has not shrunk in this series because he was overrated or is just “off his game,” but rather because there is a 6-8, 250-pound thorn buried deep in his side.

This is not a knock on Rose, but an appreciation of James.

I followed him casually and from afar during his Cleveland years, seeing him in person only on rare occasions when the Cavaliers played here. All you got from that was the sketched outline of superstardom, snippets of highlight dunks, numbers on a stat sheet.

You have to see James up close for a season to take in every nuance of his game, from the locomotive strength and speed to the athleticism to the endurance to the ability find a higher gear and take over when the moment demands.

James is the best offensive player in the league when he needs to be, as Tuesday’s 35 points demonstrated. But it is the all-round play that is stunning. He could average a triple-double if it was his intention. He was 13 for 13 from the free-throw line Tuesday.

And defense? He is capable of guarding all five opponent positions.

I don’t mean all at the same time, although if anyone could …

This series James is guarding and utterly flummoxing Chicago’s most explosive player when it matters most, and the frustration in Rose’s voice is palpable. “It’s extremely hard when a 6-8 guy can easily defend you,” he said after Game 4.

After scoring 35 points, James said, “I love defense much more than I do [offense]. I take pride on that side of the floor.”

It just isn’t fair. James saying he prefers defense is like Renoir saying he prefers writing piano concertos. It’s like finding out the prettiest girl you’ve met actually is a rocket scientist.

It isn’t just LeBron, it is smothering team defense.

One might think a team with James and Dwyane Wade would be inclined (and forgiven) to be showy and offense-oriented at the expense of defense, but this is a squad of superstars and blue-collar ethic.

“Lunch-pail mentality,” Wade calls it.

Wade, by the way, is having a mortal series against the Bulls, averaging a well-below-normal 18.3 points, but there is no panic or even visible concern. It is because Chris Bosh has picked up some of that slack, because ferocious defense makes up for so, so much, and mostly because LeBron is around — at the absolute top of his game — to seemingly make everything OK.

There was much talk of LeBron’s “brand” and “legacy” being irreparably damaged when he left Cleveland for “South Beach.”

That is worth revisiting.

Look, most Cavs fans will never forgive him for the manner in which he left. Many others will always see him an easy villain, too. That infamous T he Decision TV show will remain an indelible smudge on his résumé.

Get this right, though. LeBron’s brand and legacy are growing before our eyes, and the ceiling on that growth is so high it cannot be seen. Games like Tuesday night grow it. Suffocating Rose grows it. His elusive first NBA championship will grow it.

Question how James left Cleveland. That will always be fair. But after this postseason and this series, don’t you dare question why any more.

The scariest thing about this Heat team — scary-good for Miami fans and plain scary for opponents — is that this was supposed to be the transition year without the realistic title expectation.

There isn’t a member of the Heat organization who doesn’t believe next season’s team should be even better, after a year of playing together, with a healthy Udonis Haslem and Mike Miller for a full year and with an added piece or two.

Haslem and Miller erase the issue of Miami’s formerly weak depth and bench. Haslem gave the spark that won Game 2 of this series. Miller, his newborn baby in the hospital, found the mental toughness to come up huge Tuesday night.

Depth is suddenly so much better that James Jones, who scored 25 off the bench in Game 1 of the Celtics series, can’t get back in the rotation.

This looks like the best team in the league right now, and like a team that will only get better.

“We’re still feeling our way around this,” Bosh said earlier this week, “as crazy as that sounds.”

Crazy, yes.

Crazy like your wildest dream.

Kurt Thomas is who the Bulls needed in game 4. Noah was dog tired by the end and thats when the Bulls started getting dominated.

I never thought I'd see the day when opposing fans would say this. It feels good.

Win now because there may be no tomorrow.

They should have been playing him from the get go in this series.
