Chandler with 16 boards... right on cue.

Bench step up too... Terry and Stevenson, but they cyah buy ah shot here at the end.  Nowitzski battling thru illness... and just tell Van Gundy tuh shut he pie hole.  "Too early" my left foot.

EDIT:

Was holding mih breath on that Miller shot... arc was perfect, aim was about 4 feet wide.  Heckuva effort by Wade to save that ball to Miller though.

The dribble off the foot at the end was a nice touch. Miller could have done better on his last shot. You have to miss more convincingly. Sell it!

Yea Wade did well to get a pass to Miller and get something from his blunder. Miller had time and could've ever dish off to Chalmers on top of the arc but oh well game 6 it is. I wouldn't lie, fans and analysts alike real crucify James this morning on Mike & Mike for his 8 points...ah mean de man didn't shine offensively last night and didn't need to IMO with Wade and Bosh racking up the points. I expect James to come out aggressive next game.

And yes when Love makes it deep into the playoffs, where stars are made, we'll see how good he really is and how his how many redbounds he can pull with intense defenses.

I mean Miller. The shot was so far off, people might begin to suspect something, if it had at least hit the backboard, it would have been more convincing. Wade make it look good and then Miller didn't even try, spoiling all that good work.

But serious talk though, if anybody had doubts about who the real King of Miami is... Until the meltdown in the 4th. Wade was putting on a show.

I biased because I'm a LeBron fan... but I think people are conveniently overlooking LeBron's other contrbutions in the game.  People ar too mercurial.  Against the Bulls it was LeBron and Bosh taking turns carrying the Heat... all while LeBron was being guarded by the Bulls best defender (Deng), and while guarding the Bulls best player at the end of the game (Rose).  Now all ah sudden to hear folks (not saying you) tell it, LeBron is overrated and can't come up big when it matters.

Lebron carried the Heat in both the Celtics and Bulls series. I think is just a case that either Wade was conserving his energy for the Finals or Dallas does not have the 1 v 1 defenders that he saw in the earlier rounds.
I want Lebron to win a ring just to spite Barkley.

People just getting carried away because Lebron wasn't himself the past two games, more so last night. Even though he may not have had the stats to show it, if you watched the game you would've seen is defending was on point and his passes were on the money esp in transition.
I'll give the Dallas coaching staff credit in designing a defensive zone strategy to keep him in check, they might've stifled lebron but it opened up holes for Wade to exploit. Also for all the garbage ppl (not on here)were speaking about Stevenson shutting down Lebron, this is the first time I could ever remember Stevenson having a good game against him and this is going back to when he played with the Wizards with Arenas vs the Cavs. And no, I'm not a Heat supporter just a neutral fan of this series, which has been a damn good one thus far :beermug:

As they say, is all about match ups. Dallas lets Wade get free - or maybe he's just showing why he's a former Finals MVP. I think is sad, that what he did in the last 3 games is upstaged a bit by the constant Lebron talk. The man was a beast last night (until he get the signal)

Truth is that Dallas have to pick their poison... they don't have the horses to run with the Heat, and specifically don't have the defenders to guard both LeBron and Wade.  Now, I give Kidd a TON of credit, the job he's doing on James should not be overlooked.  Fact is though that I haven't really seen the Heat looking to go to James... hard to when he's the one initiating the offense from up top.  Wade is looking to be aggressive, and most of his shots are coming in the paint.  Two bo' rat cyah occupy the same hole, so if Wade looking to drive LeBron can't take his defender in there to further clog up the lane.  As a result, Wade either getting buckets or kicking it out.. to LeBron.  Problem is that many of the kickouts come with time winding down on the clock so LeBron ends up putting up a rushed shot.  That affects your rhythym and confidence when you start shooting rushed bricks at the end of the shot clock time after time.  That's the main reason why he's in the mini-slump he's in.

All that said, he had 23 pts in Game 1, 20 in Game 2, 17 in Game 3 and 8 last night... for an average of 17pts per game.  To go along with 7 boards, 6 assists and 2 steals per game in the Finals.  You'd swear he was pulling a Carlos Boozer, to listen to the histrionics in the press.  I wouldn't even give Dallas credit for keeping him in check... he's just missing shots.

This is funny to type, But Dwayne Wade need help. Dallas reducing the Big 3 to the Big 1. is almost like they letting wade score until he bun, but starving Bosh and Lebron.

Chandler playing like a man possessed.

The Heat might have let the clock run down too far there. Down 6 with more time if you foul. Down 7 now with 33 seconds left. Is all about the clock now.

It would be interesting to see a breakdown of what Dallas does at the end of the 4th to go on these runs. Miami have been stifled scoring-wise in every game in this series.

Again Miami was weak in the 4th quarter.  WE did that to the Bulls, it sucks to have the tables turned on us.
Real good series.

Hahaa... what yuh saying about de Miami fans lol


Anyways... I know more LeBron hate and criticism coming down the pike but only a superficial analysis will leave anybody with the notion that LeBron "disappeared" in the 4th again. It's really on the coach. When Wade was in the locker room getting treated what offense did they run??? LeBron on the box, set after set. Wade comes back and starts dominating the ball, driving and getting to the line every possession... or passing to a cutting big man... what's LeBron supposed to do... fight the ball out of Wade's hand?

Wade is playing the Alpha male by dominating the ball... it's Spoelstra's job to run sets for LeBron just as he did when they didn't know if Wade would come back. Had Wade not come back we'd be singing a different song because it would have been all LeBron.  There's only one ball and unless the coach calls plays involving LeBron (or even featuring him, like they did in the 3rd) then that leaves it up to LeBron to go to Wade and demand the ball from him.

I understand your points and LeBron played facilitator and deflected to Wade. But 11 4th quarter pts in this series - not good enough and LeBron will tell you that too.
