What did they T up Boozer for? Way not to show it!
 
2013-05-15 08:38:02 PM  
Like 8 offensive boards, Chicago by 9.

ghall3: TheJoe03: ghall3: TheJoe03: Yeah but I'll still hate them as long as that cocksucker Wade is on the team. Plus they were acting like d bags in 2011 and they mocked Dirk so that kept the hate going in a big way.

Oh yeah I forgot about the flu thing they did. However, that made it much more satisfying to me when the Mavs won though, not a Mavs fan myself but that was pretty sweet.

Best sports moment if my life so far, plus for some reason I just knew Dallas was better that year. Oh and almost everyone was a Mavs fan that year, hard to root against the team they had at the time.

/damn Cuban had to blow up that team.

Yeah, I did really like that team. Shame they let Chandler go to take a run at the D-bag that is D-Howard.

At least I think that's what happened, my memory is fuzzy on why they did that.


They wanted a younger franchise guy to eventually replace Dirk, they whiffed on Deron Williams and they have deluded themselves into thinking CP3 or Howard will come to Dallas this summer. I hope to god we don't get Howard, I can't stand that schmuck.

I didn't see a T there...

For not sucking for the first time this series?

Watching that last possession on TNT OT with the backboard cam was pretty awesome.

Doogled: Why is Butler so good?!


He kinda looks like jamie fox in those movie trailer commercials
 
2013-05-15 08:39:21 PM  
Bulls getting hot, time to T up someone for "cursing" or whatnot.

CP3 would be a good fit, at least for the last few years of Dirk.....Howard, he just seems way to immature and not interested in getting better. I know he was recovering from a back injury this year but NOTHING I saw made it seem like he was worth giving a max contract.

/As a Sixers fan, don't get me started on Bynum as well
 
2013-05-15 08:41:19 PM  
LeBron isn't going to let this series go to 6.

2013-05-15 08:42:24 PM  
That was a lazy, frustration foul by Noah.
 
2013-05-15 08:42:47 PM  
Miami will make the comeback as they try to even the fouls back out. Miami had been up 17-10 in fouls called against until that, mostly to help them get back in the game earlier.
 
2013-05-15 08:42:53 PM  
Boozer beat Haslam like a redheaded rented mule.
 
2013-05-15 08:44:20 PM  
Maybe Bosh should ask to shoot his FTs from beyond the arc.
 
2013-05-15 08:44:39 PM  
CP3 is one of my favorite players, I'd be ecstatic if he signed, but no way he leaves la la land. Howard, on the other hand, is a team killer who is incredibly overrated. As for Bynum, that really sucked, based on last year I thought the Sixers would get better and at least be then 7 or 8 seed.
 
2013-05-15 08:45:17 PM  
Not sure I would want to be in a tie-up/scrum with the Bulls in this state of mind....lol
 
2013-05-15 08:45:17 PM  
Jump ball between Haslem, Bosh, and Butler?
 
2013-05-15 08:45:55 PM  
Bosh cheated!  lol
 
2013-05-15 08:46:45 PM  
Noooooo   Ahhhhhrrggg
 
2013-05-15 08:47:11 PM  
Well, even Haslem can make that one.

If they don't fire Del-negro I think he can be convinced

I don't fault the trade, I just fear they will try to sign him
 
2013-05-15 08:48:02 PM  
Bosh and Haslem with 4.
 
2013-05-15 08:49:25 PM  

robsul82: Bosh and Haslem with 4.


Not good for the Heat, fouls seem inconsistent this game...well all playoffs, so what else is new I guess but still
 
2013-05-15 08:49:42 PM  
Haslem trying to get himself T'd up.
 
2013-05-15 08:50:25 PM  
Y'know if Battier is going to get abused on defense and not make 3s, there are lots of guys on the bench that can at least make the 3s.

/yay eastern conference ball, we'll intentionally foul you at half-court just so we can catch up on defense!
 
2013-05-15 08:51:00 PM  
68-63 Chicago, 2:43 3rd

2 ticks on the shot clock for the Bulls.

Whew, really expected the typical Heat surge to start the 3rd, didn't happen thankfully.
 
2013-05-15 08:51:03 PM  
Heat energy level seems really low. Wonder if they can ramp it up in the 4th.

Worked out in the Bulls' favor that time, no points on that possession.

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

I want the Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson movie to be awesome but it just looks so terrible....

/Not Will Smith After Earth terrible but still not good....

cameroncrazy1984: Worked out in the Bulls' favor that time, no points on that possession.


It does virtually every time. Which is why it's horsesh*t. F*cking play basketball - basketball isn't about intentional fouls every time you turn the ball over because there's no punishment for doing so.

It will be but you know you're going to watch it anyway.

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

Palmer Eldritch: TheManofPA: Memphis doesn't have the starpower to matchup, they'd be interesting and can beat the Spurs, but they'd be done in 5 against Miami

OK, I can see Miami winning. But not in five. Miami doesn't match up well at all. Who guards Gasol? Anderson? Who guards Randolph? Bosh? If Wade can't score against the corpses of the Bulls, how the hell can he score when he's being guarded by Tony Allen?


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.

I still feel evil because when the Heat were down to Boston 3-2, I said how they were going to win the final in 5...it just felt like Cleveland hadn't been kicked in the balls in about 6 months
 
2013-05-15 08:54:59 PM  
Rip for 3, it's Chicago +10
 
2013-05-15 08:55:37 PM  
The Heat need to fire their team seamstress.
 
2013-05-15 08:55:39 PM  
That's the second jersey the Bulls have ripped.

Yes I am, but not until it is on my in-flight entertainment for a business trip...I'll probably end up watching both. I predict I'll fall asleep during After Earth though.

Well, there IS a punishment for doing so: the bonus.

Robinson might be the only good foul-shooter they have tonight.

In general, NBA refs get too swayed by home crowds in the playoffs, but then have an inexplicably called game where they will either call nothing or everything (which can screw a certain style of team not expecting it).

Then you have the 3 refs who only want us to talk about them and then the certain set with biases against certain players/coaches. It's hard to find a rhythm because you don't know who you will run into

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.
 
2013-05-15 08:57:24 PM  

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).
 
2013-05-15 08:57:37 PM  
Heat missing threes, missing FTs...
 
2013-05-15 08:57:49 PM  
Ok. Home. Lets laugh at how many points behind the Bulls are...

Wait. What happened? Awesome.
 
2013-05-15 08:58:15 PM  
Well, Shuttlesworth is his own beast, lol.  Threeball.
 
2013-05-15 08:58:21 PM  

cameroncrazy1984: Well, there IS a punishment for doing so: the bonus.


That's not a punishment when you're mostly fouling intentionally to prevent automatic two points anyway.
 
2013-05-15 08:59:23 PM  
Wade to the locker room, so says Kerr.
 
2013-05-15 08:59:44 PM  
Ray Allen dueling with Rip Hamilton? After the game, are they going to share some Werthers Originals?
