    Would be cool to see Pop rest his starters in one of the Miami games and still win the series.

    True. We fired coaches for not making it past game 6 of the ECF.

    I was thinking about this earlier.
    I fully expect Pop to pull some shananigans to try and hide TD, Parker, Manu & Danny Green during shootaround claiming that they didn't make the trip from San Antonio for game 1. He'll likey just mention it to a reporter or say something about not wanting to get fined.

    Coach Pop is quite the prankster. Remember when he clowned Shaq by busting out the Hack-a-Shaq 5 seconds into the game?
    ...dude is awesome!

    Nice alliteration. Prince playing pathetically proved to be the difference.

    A Jim Dandy of a game tonight. I am definitely less bullish on the Pacers after the Heat's G3 performance, but they've had 3 of the 4 games played at their pace.

    Terrible call to foul LBJ out.

    You almost got to be Raging Bull-like to beat Miami in a 7 game series. They pound on you constantly in these 1 possession games.

    I can't wait until Miami/San , it will be such of a good series. Maybe Indy can take them to 7 and wear them out a bit - even up the odds some.

    IND can win this. They are one tweaked ankle away.

    This series is turning out to be a lot better than I expected.

    I don't think Miami can handle SA with Bosh and Wade fighting for the Alfred role.

    Miami really struggles against the Indy frontcourt. I can't wait to see how game 7 plays out. A feverless West and Birdman returns to reunite the big three with James and Cole.

    I'll be shocked if Miami loses game 7.

    Seems to me that post game comments by James and Wade indicate that an Indiana victory is possible.
    Lebron said that Wade just didn't have it. Wade said he wants more offensive opportunities.
    Wade also said they cannot win with James being a one man show.

    Here's hoping that the Heat implode for game 7............:)

    It's only one game so anything can happen. Vegas give Indiana a 25 percent chance of winning.

    Sorry to ask but I crashed the min the game was over, did they do their interview together like Best Friends Forever still?

    I am also torn on who to root for, I really want us to get our coaching situation sorted and would love to see us get on with the interviewing of Shaw... He remains my favorite.

    They talked to Wade first....separately from Lebron.
    When they talked to Lebron, after he offered his view, they then relayed what Wade had said.
    Lebron stated that both Bosh and Wade were in a slump, but did not offer any change in his approach.
