That was unreal. Crazy how technology saved them from OT. Would've been a good basket back in the day.

So now the refs are going the other direction. Someone is always going to bitch about the calls, well, except the Warriors and their fans because they get all of the calls their way bart

Charlotte was already getting all the calls in Games 1-2 - Heat crushed them yet they still managed to draw far more fouls and get to the line far more often. Total joke
well charlottes game plan went from being #4 in total 3 pts attempted to this heat series where they became either the #1 or #2 team driving into the paint.

you're bound to get more calls if you're going into the paint

to put into perspective "Lin's played 69 fewer minutes than Russell Westbrook, but they both have 46 drives"

Yes blindly driving into the paint, crashing into someone and flailing your arms gets foul calls apparently in this day and age. Total joke-fest.

Have nothing against him - he has played great and apparently not a single player on the Heat can stay in front of him - but the number of foul calls has been ridiculous

because charlotte went from the #4 3 pt shooting team to the #1/2 team playing in the paint.

There is a direct causation of foul calls to distance from the hoop. Closer to hoop > foul calls.

OMG, the irony of this from any Heat fan after DWade got every phantom foul call imaginable in the 2006 Finals versus Dallas........ doh

And I'm having fun with a Heat fan using terms like "total jokefest", "ridiculous" and "selling BS contact" to describe an inordinate amount of fouls being called when the same situation in the Heat's favor enabled them to steal their first NBA title.
Warriors close it out against a pathetic Houston team. They have Zero team chemistry. Looks like they may have an easy 2nd round with Portland trying to close out the Clips.

Charlotte goes up 3-2, and head home for Game 6, look to close out.
Despite being outscored in the paint and rebounded, Charlotte wins Game 5. Totally deserving as well. Courtney Lee - what a play getting the offensive rebound and nailing the 3
Wade was clearly fouled on that last play but Miami's train wreck half court offense the previous three possessions make me not care. They had that game and blew it. Not too surprising though. Charlotte is the better team.

funny that jb should mention that single play ... wade was most certainly getting benefit of the doubt calls that game.
Heat winning a series means nothing to anyone outside of south Florida, and to 90% of the people in south Florida.

Charlotte winning a series sells millions, probably tens of millions in merchandise for the NBA in Asia. You think Lin's going to get some foul calls? Really surprised?

I loved the comment about the Warriors getting 'all the calls'. Really? Have you watched any games this year? The NBA routinely called fouls at 2 x1 or even 3x1 or 4x1 against the Warriors. It was the only way to keep games close. In a fairly called league the Warriors would have won 80 games and had games they won by 60+ points.

The NBA is fun, but come on, the fix is in and has been for decades. Officials keep games close and help teams that need help. It's not as bad as 10 years ago when you could pick the brackets based on the potential tv ratings, but if you're going to bitch about officiating you need to find something else to watch on tv. IT's never going to be fair or honest.

Didn't watch the whole game. Just the last 3 minutes. No clue what else happened.

Homer's not gonna homer? Jumped off the bandwagon already?

catmouse Razz
Whoa. How am I a homer? Is it because I defended LBJ when he was here and said he was the best player in the league and Miami would win multiple title? Its not homer if you're right. bart

This Heat team was never a title contender, even with Bosh. I like to talk a little smack but any Heat fan who thinks they are winning a title with this iteration of the team is fooling themselves. Interesting offseason ahead though. Is Riley going to double down and resign Whiteside to a max deal and hope for healthy Bosh and internal growth from Winslow and Richardson or he does he let Whiteside walk and try to bring in a free stud free agent? Two if he convinces Bosh to retire?
I'm referring to you not watching the game, except for the final 3 mins. If you're busy, DVR it and watch the whole thing. C'mon!

No way Bosh is going to retire of his own volition. He wants to play right now! No idea if he's physically going to ever be cleared to play.
I cant watch sports delayed. It drives me nuts. We had a charity event for a local animal sanctuary so I couldnt catch anything except the tail end.

The Bosh thing is going to be interesting. Heat have shown no inclination to clear him.

Cmon, Heat fans didn't show up until the 2nd Quarter of Finals games, and left after the 3rd Quarter....you think they will watch a first round game? Roll Eyes
I wonder how many Cav fans were burning his jersies or cussing him out when LBJ left and now root for him? Razz

This is the correct answer. And if Satan himself could bring one of the Cleveland sports teams a title, he would be a hero, and I would be the first to pat him on the back.

One person can not win a title. That has been proven many times. Takes a great team to win a title. Talent,endurance, depth, health, and with replay, luck is less a part of the equation.

Go Warriors!!!
Congratulations to Luke Walton on being named Head Coach of the LA Lakers. A positive step hopefully. I found it ironic that Luke's last two years as a player were in Cleveland with a Head Coach named Byron Scott.
Cavs have had a problem all season with not stepping on their opponents throat when they have them down by double digits. Almost cost them last night, most likely will against a better opponent.

The Spurs-OKC end of the game had multiple things happening (Waiters pushed off, Ginoboli was over the line with his feet and hands while guarding, Westbrook had his jersey grabbed while cutting for the ball). I think 3 or 4 different fouls could've been called on that one play, so letting them play on may have been best thing to do.
Folks, I have a feeling that this Heat vs Raptors series is going to be a nice little battle. Both teams look like they are not going accept losing. Coaching moves and foul trouble may be the tipping point in a 6-7 gamer

Not a game. We talking about practice. Not a game. Not the game that I go out there and die for and play every game like it's my last. Not the game. We talking about practice, man."
