robsul82: Wade to the locker room, so says Kerr.


Good. Kinda tired of watching a whole half a quarter go by without LeBron touching the ball on offense. Though if he wants to keep being lazy and staying outside and shooting jump shots, I'm not sure that's the worst thing to keep it away from him.
 
2013-05-15 09:01:02 PM
Damn didn't know that Robinson played running back at Washington
 
2013-05-15 09:01:09 PM
77-69 Chicago, 12:00 4th

All right, Bulls.  Don't get outscored by 8 or more, and Game 6 awaits back home.

Let's goooooooo

Welcome to Miami!

ghall3: robsul82: Yeah, I'm not really sure what the refs are calling from possession to possession here, but we'll see what the 4th brings.

Not sure what the cause is, long layoffs, conspiracy, bad refs...but there are just too many games with terrible flow that I attribute to the refs in the first few rounds.

Hockey doesn't seem to have this problem...so maybe it is the layoffs


Does hockey use the same refs all series? I wonder if the NBA did that you'd see more flow as players get used to what they can and can't get away with.
 
2013-05-15 09:01:57 PM
I'd love a miracle series win by Chicago. But I'd be happy if the Bulls just extend the series.

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Nuggets fan here. Iggy is a nice player, but you don't want to tie up that much of your cap space in a perimeter guy with such inconsistent offense, IMO. In the long run, the 6ers might regret more what they gave up to the Magic.


Yeah, I agree the Sixers overpaid AI2, he was a very very good player, but you aren't going anywhere if he is your best player.

As great as V.....however you spell it was this year for the Magic, I still think the trade was worth the risk. You need a certified franchise player to win a championship, Bynum had that potential. Now I don't think he does so I really hope they don't try to sign him.

was that a will smith rap outro?
 
2013-05-15 09:02:54 PM
You have to remember, it IS still the Willennium.  He told us so.
 
2013-05-15 09:02:55 PM
You know that the heat are going to go on a fun here. Let's see if the bulls can stand up to it.

What the heck was "The Purge"
 
2013-05-15 09:03:31 PM

IAmRight: ghall3: Hockey doesn't seem to have this problem...so maybe it is the layoffs

Hockey doesn't have as many fouls to call.

/and the "layoffs" are overblown - the NBA's first round took one more day than the NHL's first round (both had series that went 7).


It's more the inconsistent play, every other day is the most these guys are used to, randomly stopping series for 2-3 days at a time has to throw them off a bit, which throws off the flow of the game. I don't recall any NHL series having more than one day off between games

NRA torture porn propaganda?

Yeah, his song about Miami, where the heat is on, welcome to Miami.

Great jacket on Sager.
 
2013-05-15 09:05:32 PM
Battier is frigid.
 
2013-05-15 09:07:19 PM
5th time is the charm for Battier.
 
2013-05-15 09:08:04 PM
And here comes the collapse.
 
2013-05-15 09:08:17 PM
77-74 Chicago, 10:00 4th

Well, let's calm down that run.
 
2013-05-15 09:08:23 PM
Mike Miller just did a 360 flying chest bump with no one.

2013-05-15 09:08:34 PM
oh God, Anderson dunks. I hate that guy.
 
2013-05-15 09:08:37 PM
So maybe Miami can only play well each year when one of the Not-Lebron's gets hurt.
 
2013-05-15 09:08:48 PM
For some reason that play reminded me of FGCU. Good times
 
2013-05-15 09:08:59 PM

TheManofPA: More of a gut feeling that they have 1 close one, 1 blow out at home; they take 1 of 2 in Memphis and then close it out at home.


You know the finals are 2-3-2, right? So three straight games in Memphis.

Again, virtually every game has been played with one day's rest between. There was one game in each series that has been played with two days off.

/Game 1s are different but you don't want teams midway through their second round while the other side of the bracket is still in the first round

I tried to save Aziz...I tried!

I agree about game 1s, it still feels disjointed from what the regular season is.

however it happenes, the flow in the playoffs often is screwed up, particularly with how the games are called by the refs

That was a botch on my end, completely forgot. Game 5 in Memphis might be hard after they take 4. If I was betting, I'd still do 5 games, but less confident.

I might want to see that "This is the End". It has a Most Extraordinary Space Explorations vibe to it
 
2013-05-15 09:12:34 PM
Faaark, of course Battier gets hot now.
 
2013-05-15 09:12:39 PM
Damn you Battier.
 
2013-05-15 09:12:59 PM
I loved Thibs as Russell in Wayne's World.
 
2013-05-15 09:13:18 PM
It was subtle, but they did replace Battier with good Battier, who can make threes. Much better.
 
2013-05-15 09:13:30 PM
Fouled on a 3, come on Taj.
 
2013-05-15 09:14:21 PM

JerseyTim: I loved Thibs as Russell in Wayne's World.


I would love to see Thibs say "I love you guys. No, I mean it. I love you."
 
2013-05-15 09:15:01 PM
Wow Nate was WIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDE open. Still no one looked near him.

That guy on the court is just a tattooed imitator .
 
2013-05-15 09:15:47 PM
Wow, James bricked another FT.
 
2013-05-15 09:16:07 PM
Wow. That was a special star call right there.
 
2013-05-15 09:16:40 PM
I just have this question: If talking to Ray Allen improved his FT shooting, and it only took a quick suggestion, why the f*ck not do that at the beginning of the year?
 
2013-05-15 09:17:17 PM

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Wow. That was a special star call right there.


The worst thing about the NBA and it has been that way since forever.
 
2013-05-15 09:17:20 PM
That should have been a flagrant on Nate Robinson.
 
2013-05-15 09:17:21 PM
How is that not a foul on Wade?
 
2013-05-15 09:17:37 PM
of all the times for a cold shooting spell. and here comes a flagrant too
 
2013-05-15 09:17:40 PM
little 5 foot nothing nate playing backyard rules
 
2013-05-15 09:17:48 PM

Now That's What I Call a Taco!: Wow. That was a special star call right there.


When the guy comes down and hits your hand as you shoot? No, that's how basketball works. Hit him before he went up, too.

/they're reviewing whether it was clear path, not flagrant, weirdos.
 
2013-05-15 09:18:14 PM

cameroncrazy1984: How is that not a foul on Wade?


Because... Wade?
 
2013-05-15 09:18:29 PM
Flagrant on Nate.
 
2013-05-15 09:18:51 PM
Hmmmmm that's a flagrant? They've been doing that horsesh*t all series.
 
2013-05-15 09:18:54 PM
I finally figured out who Nate Robinson looks like. He looks like a short, strong Mos Def.

Like, if Mos Def were playing Mike Tyson in a movie.
