So you're just talking out of your ass then. Good to know.

No, talking out of my ass would be to tell you that you have no complaints when I haven't watched, so wouldn't know.

What's with you guys? In LA it was raining 3s and now nobody can hit anything even when they are wide open or it's just a simle layup. It's like Dirk against the Heat.

I know people freaked out on me the last time I said this but not only is LeBron not the best player in the league, he's not even the best player on his team and that should be obvious as hell at this point.

The worst thing about the heat winning an NBA championship if they do is listening to the Media suck LeBrons dick all year. Just today on sports talk, (I think it was Mike and Mike) I had to listen to this douchebag talk about how Lebron has saved the whole league. Nobody cares about the Lakers or the Celtics, everyone wants to see LeBron. LMAO If the Heat win I am canceling my NBA league pass. I don't want to hear this shit.

Funny, I was in this pizza joint and the place was packed with everyone there rooting for the Mavericks or opting to remaining silent. The owner said if he watched 3 minutes of BB that was 2 1/2 more minutes that he ever wanted to. When Dirk missed the last shot the whole place went quiet and everyone left within 10 minutes.

Dude was averaging 15 ppg this year, is an outstanding defender and would give Dallas yet ANOTHER three point shooter.

He would have also had a domino effect on the lineup as there wouldn't be so much pressure on Terry.

This was a championship team with Caron Butler. Without him they are going to be runners up.

This is a good article. I agree that Carlisle needs to do something to shake things up.

DALLAS -- The fake storyline is that Dallas is dead, because all 11 times we've had a 1-1 series in the 2-3-2 format, the Game 3 winner has gone on to win the series.

Welcome to the world of small sample sizes and arbitrary end points. Given that last year the team that lost Game 3 in this situation was the same club that had a 13-point lead in the second half of Game 7, you'd think we'd be describing Miami's situation in less ironclad terms.

The red herring in this stat is "since the switch to the 2-3-2 format," which is an irrelevant distinction; either way, each side has two home games left after Game 3. In fact, the year before the switch to the 2-3-2, the Game 3 loser, Boston, won the series in seven games. Even better, the 1978 Bullets were down 2-1 and had three road games left thanks to a bizarre 1-2-2-1-1 format -- yet won the title.

Of course, other teams were down 2-0 in the Finals, then 2-1 after Game 3, yet went on to win. The 2006 Heat, 1977 Blazers and 1969 Celtics all qualify; the 2005 Pistons, like the 2010 Celtics, led Game 7 in the second half before falling short.

Instead, let's take a step back and look at the big picture. We have many more series to look at than just our small sample of NBA Finals, and in those, a 2-1 lead is helpful but by no means ironclad. The Game 3 winner of what was a 1-1 series has won just more than three-quarters of those matchups, a 76.4 percent success rate. Memphis, for instance, led Oklahoma City 2-1 in the second round after an overtime win in Game 3 but lost the series. More famously, Cleveland had a similar advantage on Boston last year before imploding in the final three games.

There's no reason to think this series should be a glaring exception, because it's a close 2-1. Through three games, Miami has outscored Dallas by a total of eight points. Factor in the Heat's extra home game, and the true difference is smaller still. This also corresponds to the small difference between these teams in the regular season -- although Miami had a superior scoring margin during the season, the Heat finished with only one more win.

The Heat and Mavericks are both somewhat flawed but relatively evenly matched. For all the talk we heard all season about superteams loading up and leaving the masses in their dust, whoever wins the title this season will have slipped through a crack between the Lakers' dynasty and whatever comes next. It's only the fifth Finals in the past 33 years with neither a 60-win team nor a No. 1 seed.

But here's the other reason to think Dallas still has a shot: It has more cards left to play than the Heat do.

As star-studded as Miami's roster is, its potential adjustments are relatively limited -- especially if the Heat continue to insist on benching James Jones, who I would argue is a superior alternative to Juwan Howard for the short minutes at the end of the first and third quarters. Otherwise, Miami's main tactical options are "close big" (with Mike Miller and Wade in the backcourt) or "close small" (with Mario Chalmers joining Wade).

Dallas, on the other hand, is deep, and with depth comes options. The Mavs have lined up several different ways throughout the season and could shake things up again for Game 4. In particular, two adjustments could make a lot of sense for the Mavs as they try to claw their way back into the series on Tuesday:

1. Start Jason Terry

This is the nuclear option, and I'm not sure the Mavs are willing to go here yet, because they would have to change virtually everything about their rotation to accommodate this switch.

Nonetheless, it's compelling. As Bill Simmons and I discussed in our pre-Finals podcast, this is the only option sitting on the table for Mavs coach Rick Carlisle that could radically shake up the series, and at this point, a radical shake-up doesn't seem like a bad idea. As I projected before the series, the start of halves has been a problem for Dallas -- DeShawn Stevenson, normally the first starter to check out, has a plus/minus of minus-17 in the three games.

Meanwhile, this look would address a pair of usage imbalances. First, Dallas' best unit all playoffs long has been Jason Kidd-Terry-Shawn Marion-Dirk Nowitzki-Tyson Chandler, but that quintet typically plays together only at the end of each half. The players would get about 12 more minutes of run together if they were the starting group.

Additionally, Terry just isn't playing that many minutes, and he needs to play more. He has seen 96 minutes of court time in the three games, whereas the other key players on each side have played around 120. The drawback to playing Terry off the bench is that it reduces his overall minutes, and in a Finals series in which starters are playing 40-plus, that disparity becomes particularly glaring.

2. Shake up Dirk's minutes

This is probably the most urgent item for Game 4. Dallas' substitution pattern for Nowitzki simply isn't working. When Peja Stojakovic comes in for Nowitzki in the first and third quarters, it opens up a glaring mismatch at the 3 or the 4 because LeBron James and Chris Bosh are still in the game.

Carlisle likes to give Nowitzki his breathers early in the half, but this doesn't fly against Miami's rotation. Dallas has played only 20 minutes without Dirk in the series, but in that time the Mavs are a staggering minus-31. At that rate, Dallas would lose a 48-minute game by 74 points. Basically, the Mavs are outplaying the Heat as long as Nowitzki plays, but they're getting killed in his few minutes of rest.

This issue has as much to do with his replacement, Stojakovic, as it does Nowitzki. As good as Peja was in the first two rounds, he was subpar against Oklahoma City and has been downright awful in three Finals games.

One potential counter is to wait until Juwan Howard enters the game before bringing in Stojakovic, providing the Serb with a place to hide on defense. The less obvious move would be to use defensively talented but offensively bereft Corey Brewer in Stojakovic's place.

Another strategy might be to combine the two ideas above. By starting Terry, the Mavs could bring in Stevenson to give Nowitzki his rest and have a solid defender remain on the court. In fact, they could use Stevenson if they don't change the starting lineup just by tweaking the guard rotation to bring in Terry a couple of minutes earlier (which needs to happen anyway), then bring in a fresh Stevenson near the end of the first and third quarter in the Stojakovic spot.

At any rate, the Mavs need to shake things up a bit. They've been close but are constantly playing from behind and are likely due for a regression on defense once Bosh makes some shots.

Down 2-1 is not a death sentence despite the gory "11 straight" stat you'll hear incessantly for the next day and a half, but the pressure is certainly on Dallas heading into Game 4.

http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/story/LeBron-James-Dwyane-Wade-Miami-Heat-toying-with-Dirk-Nowitzki-Dallas-Mavericks-in-NBA-Finals-060611

It wasn’t close. In a game that both combatants agreed was critical, the Miami Heat dominated Dallas and the three-man officiating crew of Mark Cuban’s wildest fantasies.

Yes, Dirk Nowitzki unspooled a would-be, game-tying fadeaway as the buzzer sounded on Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but an answer to Dirk’s prayer would’ve only stalled the inevitable.

Miami’s 88-86 victory Sunday night revealed the flukiness of Game 2 and the shakiness of Nowitzki’s supporting cast.

The Heat could wrap up this best-of-7 series before leaving Dallas. That’s not a prediction. It’s a simple observation.

If the Mavericks can’t beat Miami inside the American Airlines Center on a night Chris Bosh plays with one good eye, LeBron James struggles with his stroke and the refs openly flirt with Mark Cuban, then it’s preposterous to believe Dallas can win this series.

This wasn’t a two-point game. This was a millionaire armed with Viagra, condoms and a best-of-Barry White CD striking out at The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

As you read this, J.J. Barea is bricking another wide-open 3-pointer and the refs are waking Nowitzki from a nap to send The Germanator back to the free-throw line.

Seriously, how did Dallas lose this game?

The refs called nearly twice as many fouls on Miami (27-14) as Dallas. Down the stretch, the refs sent Nowitzki to the stripe for no reason and looked the other way when Shawn Marion flew into LeBron James.

There are two theories to explain Sunday’s officiating:

1) Cuban called in his marker from 2006.

2) The refs are trying to stop James and Dwyane Wade from turning basketball into soccer.

I’m going with No. 2. Wade and James are disgracing the game with their flopping and whining. Maybe I’m romanticizing the NBA glory years, but I don’t remember basketball being played this way by Jordan, Magic, Larry, Isiah, Duncan, Hakeem, etc.

James and Wade are actors who seem to delight in baiting the refs into bad calls the way soccer players do. When they don’t get a call, they resort to demonstrative tantrums.

I’m not a James-Wade hater. I’m bothered by their tactics because I want to celebrate their brilliance. I’m bothered by their tactics because I don’t want basketball to become anything like soccer. The refs have a tough enough job without trying to decide who is and isn’t flailing their arms and vaulting to the ground.

As a fan, I find that flopping, flailing and whining detract from the game. I hope NBA dictator David Stern does something to discourage the behavior. We have flagrant fouls. I say let’s add flagrant flops. Have a replay official monitor the game and award flagrant-flop free throws at the beginning of each quarter. There’s no reason to interrupt the flow of the game.

If replay reveals Wade flailed-flopped in an effort to draw a bogus foul, the opposition gets a single free throw at the start of the next quarter. If the flail-flop leads to a bogus foul call, then the opposing team gets two free throws.

I know it’s a judgment call, but aren’t they all? Plus, it would take only about a month to eliminate flailing and flopping all together.

I’m sorry for that tangent. It needed to be said.

My original point was that despite the refs blatantly favoring the Mavericks, the Heat dominated Sunday’s game. Miami took several double-digit leads and pretty much controlled the game from start to finish.

Dallas went on a couple of good runs and flirted with stealing another game when it was clearly outplayed. But Sunday’s game and this series aren’t competitive. They’re exciting.

You could make a persuasive argument the Heat should be going for a sweep Tuesday night. Unlike Game 2, Erik Spoelstra allowed Wade to initiate the offense late and Udonis Haslem to guard Nowitzki.

To paraphrase Moses Malone, we’re looking at “fi, fi, fi.”

We’re looking at a Miami team being every bit as dominant during these playoffs as it promised to be during its preseason championship celebration.

Would this series be different if the Mavericks had Caron Butler and Brendan Haywood? Maybe. Or maybe the refs wouldn’t take so much pity on Dallas.

IMHO Wade is clearly the leader, the floor general, the captain. Lebron and Bosh are great complements.

Yep, it's why I don't watch much... but, from the playoff games I've watched this year, it seems like there's less of it than previous years. I also hate when defenders get called for a foul because the guy with the ball initiated contact. It's one thing when you fake a shot to get the defender in the air, then get fouled on a shot. I think it was Kidd last night who jumped sideways to draw a foul on Wade... granted, it might still have been a foul had he just taken the shot and not tried to jump into him, it's ridiculous. I think LeBron whined about not getting a call like that last night after he tried to draw contact, and I wish they were more consistent in letting stuff go when it's an obvious attempt to initiate contact or flop.

DALLAS -- Backup center Brendan Haywood will test his injured right hip during the Dallas Mavericks' shootaround and could play in Tuesday's Game 4 of the NBA Finals.

Haywood, who left Game 2 with a strained right hip flexor and did not play in Game 3, said he is feeling better. An MRI exam confirmed that the swelling in the hip has gone down significantly.

The 7-footer will attempt to sprint for the first time since aggravating the injury he originally suffered during a practice before the Finals. Coach Rick Carlisle said Haywood's status would be a game-time decision.

"If I can sprint and change directions, we'll give it a try," Haywood said. "You can't be in a Finals game if you can't sprint and change directions on the court."

Haywood wasn't sure whether his test would come after the shootaround or closer to game time. Carlisle was expected to have an announcement at his pregame interview session, about 1 hours before tipoff.

"These situations where it's something that's acute but kind of a day-to-day thing, a difference of eight or nine hours can be significant," Carlisle said.

He was a very crafty player along with immense talent.

You must be referring to the Mail Man. He did quite a bit of acting so to speak on the offensive end.

Defensively, however, like I mentioned you didn't see the flops take off until around 2000.

Dirty SOB.

You can pluck a guy here and there over the years, but now it's a league wide style of play since every guy that played Shaq had to do it.

I'll concede the defensive flops.

Most of the "Legends" had the art of working an official "aka whining" and "selling" a foul to get to the line profected like no other. That was my main point.

I would agree, not much has changed in working a official from an offensive standpoint or creating contact with the defender to get the foul.

The lineup of Barea with starters Kidd, Shawn Marion, Dirk Nowitzki and Tyson Chandler did give the Mavericks a spark in Game 3. After Barea replaced Stevenson 91 seconds into the second half, the Mavericks went on a 15-4 over the next six minutes to tie the score.

That lineup has played together for only another eight minutes during the postseason.
