2 - 2 after tonight.
How come in the Finals opening piece it appears that both the Bad Boys and Goin to work crew look like they just lost a game?? No celebration, no John Salley acting crazy and no Sheed yelling ball don't lie antics. I know those guys were serious, but we got three rings, which is 5th best all time among the franchises....show us some love in next years graphics intro.
Mavs win tonight...98-92, but only if your prediction is correct.
Doesn't look like it now.....i hate the heat.
Finally we get a 4 second shot of CBill holding the 04 trophy at the last break:p_welldone:
Great win....I knew something was wrong with Dirk. He was missing so many open shots.
Ball didn't lie....they did it. The supporting cast was able to do their thing with Dirk playing with a 101 temp. Heat were held to 14 in the 4th including only 5 in the the last 6-7 mins. Even then, you figured that they would still win when the Mavs could never extend it pass 3 pts. Wade is a monster..and I still hate him.....somebody tell me why we didn't draft him?? Oh yeah we had Rip... Lebron will get blamed for the loss because the media loves to come down on him.... The groupies will be on blast in South Beach this weekend for game 6.
Having the supporting cast score so well when needed may be the uplift this team needs to win game 5..........
Jason Kidd - the Lebron stopper. That's just embarassing.
Dirk was HOT last night!
It's foolsgold people. Heat get game 5 and it's over. right.
You could be right...but the Mavs won when Dirk shot 6-19 from the floor. If his team mates continue this type of contribution...then it's a series going 7......
Probably, but... I'm having a hard time though getting a feel for this series. The Heat seem to be in control, but in reality they're one Nowitski jumper away from being down 3-1 and facing a closeout game on the road. The Mavs have yet to play a particularly good game and the Heat have yet to play a game which involved everyone. LBJ is getting frustrated and everyone is getting frustrated at him, and Spoelstra is on the hot seat and I'm just not sure he's all that good. The chances of the Mavs winning six and seven on the road aren't very good, but if they take five...
I'd say it's close to a coinflip with Miami having a slight advantage, 55/45 or something similar.
Bold prediction: It's gonna be 3-2 after Thursday night.
Add another deuce and you have a boxscore ala James.
I can't wait for Lebron to over-react to the criticism that he's getting for being too passive. I'm hoping that he sticks his chest out and shoots 6 for 30 with 3 assists in game 5. If I'm Dirk, I tell my team on Thursday that I still feel like crap and I need ya'll to step it up again. I can't believe that I always used to get Tyrus Thomas and Tyson Chandler mixed up. I REALLY like the way Chandler plays!
I'm going to wait until halftime before I make my prediction.
I still like seeing them on there tho, its fun.... Our boys lookin' good!
I don't think there was a more intimidating front court than Wallace x2. I mean, Laimbs and Mahorn were the Bad Boys, but with the Wallaces, the opposition knew that even if everbody played a clean game they weren't gonna get anything in the paint.
