Now 17 with 5:08 left. Wade is 2/13 and got bitchy with Spoelstra. :)

Might nightmare here is that it will make it easier for the Celtics to win the East, though if the Pacers are playing well... maybe Pacers vs Spurs/Thunder will be entertaining. :P

Heat have just 1 timeout left in those 5:08 remaining.

yeah the Heat are starting to implode. Wade's had a rough couple of days. From his comments about "the celebration" to arguing with Spo, he's not himself. And maybe he's battling a mystery ailment.

But the Bosh injury may be the undoing for the Heat. Say what you want about his performance but his presence helps the Heat. Without him, they dont have a big man to help Lebron and Wade. And Hibbert's been beasting on them. he made the All-star team and he's a star in the rise.

Im starting to think more and more that we may hear "na Na na Na" when Game 6 hits Indy.

Brutal game. Look at the +/-

+10 Miller
-3 Turiaf
-9 Lebron
-10 Shane
-13 Anthony
-14 Chalmers
-15 Jones
-25 Wade

Wade played 37 minutes, Lebron played 40... Wade & James went out with 02:43 left and them down by 20. I don't know how it's possible for Wade to be -16 relative to James in the remaining 45 minutes when there were just 5 of those minutes where James wasn't in.

MIA 12-13: Wade Substitution replaced by Miller (04:43)

Wade and Lebron are -1

MIA 26-17: end of 1st Qtr - James subbed

Lebron is now +9 to Wade's -1

MIA 28-26: Jones Substitution replaced by James (08:46)

Miami outscored 2-9 while Bron is on the bench. Wade goes to -8.

MIA 35-30: Wade Substitution replaced by Miller (04:42)

7-4 run by Miami. Bron to +12, Wade to -5.

MIA 38-37 Miller Substitution replaced by Wade (02:31)

3-7 by Miami, Bron drops to +8.

MIA 55-66 Wade Substitution replaced by Cole (01:32 of 3rd)

17-29 run by Indy. Bron drops to -4, Wade to -17.

MIA 55-69: end of 3rd Qtr: James out / Wade back in

Bron drops to -7.

MIA: 57-75: Jones Substitution replaced by James (10:03 4th)

2-6 run, Wade drops to -21.

MIA 71-91: Wade Substitution replaced by Miller 02:43 / James Substitution replaced by Harris (02:43)

0-2 difference. Bron to -9, Wade to -23.

I seem to have Bron correct, but must be missing a sub of Wade as I'm off by -2. Close, though.

Real bad night for Wade.

I think Blake aggravated his knee injury just before the 2 minute mark again. Spurs look dominate again headed into the back to back...I think they finish it off in five now.

Dwyane Wade is dealing with a lower leg issue, the same injury that caused him to miss time during the regular season.


There's the mystery ailment. That explains some of it. But still him wigging out on Spo, and chastesing the "celebration" of Game 2 doesnt sit right with me.

Also on a side note, I'm not much of a Hubie Brown fan but I like the fact that there's someone who's rooting for the underdog on ESPN. I like how his catchphrase "there you go" is being used very enthusically whenever a Pacer makes a big play. Bout time someone clearly doesnt want the Heat to advance on ESPN.

And suddenly Sixers/Celts are tied after a comeback win for the Sixers. The Sixers actually started the game losing 14-0. A very impressive victory for the Sixers and it shows that they're not going down easily.

I love Hubie Brown, he and Dick Stockton ruled way back when on CBS (yes that was back in the Blazers/Pistons NBA Finals era).

I am massively pulling for the 76ers to knock off the Celts... and watching Simmons cry over it. :)

Spurs overcome the 24 point deficit to win by 10 at Staples. Clipps need to learn how to shoot some FT's.


Go OKC!

Well the Heat returned. They tied the series after an impressive 2nd half. Lebron had 40. Wade had 30 (and that was after another awful1st half by him) and Haslem had 14 from the bench.

Lebron seemed quite defiant when he was said he was the leader of the Heat after the game. After Wade's past few games though, cant really blame him.

Speaking of the Heat, perhaps the best SNL item in the past few years:

This game just flipped in the 3rd quarter. Pacers blew it there. They'll be kicking themselves in the ass for this game if they blow the series.

Howard gets his wish for next year. More of a surprise though, Otis smith gone. Hopefully he gets a 2nd chance.

This is similar to Cleveland's attempts to keep Lebron:

05/23/10 Head Coach Mike Brown fired
06/04/10 General Manager Danny Ferry fired
07/08/10 The Decision

Didn't work out there.

My guess is that Orlando Ownership and Sr. Management is delusional that they can keep Howard, and are now doing whatever they can to make it happen.
