Heat didn’t Close, Should we be Suprised?

Last night the Dallas Mavs beat the Miami Heat in Game 2 of the NBA Finals 95-93. Mavs went on a 22-5 run to end the 4th quarter to knot up the series at 1 game apiece. Most suprising of all, the Heat have, for the most part this post season closed out every game, this game, they didn’t.

The Miami Heat settled into some distrubing patterns in the 4th quarter last night. They hucked up jumpers, instead of getting into the lane and free throw line. This allowed the Mavs to go on their monster run and win the game. Everyone thought, well not everyone, but alot of people thought that the Heat had overcome their regular season problems of not finishing when the game was close in the 4th, but last night shows that the problem is still there.

Chris Bosh had a horrific 4th quarter, and finished the game with only 12 points, Lebron James was well below his average with only 20 points, D Wade led the Heat with 36 but they still lost.

Lebron has been a beast in the clutch this post season, so don’t pass the damn ball Lebron, take it and shoot it. He has been their best finisher in the clutch time, so he needs to be selfish when the clock says there is less than 5 minutes left in the game. Last night he just passed it to a struggling Bosh, who botched all of his chances, WHY? Lebron wants to win a title, he needs to take a game over instead of being a facilitator.

I still fully belive that the Heat are going to win this series. There is no team that can beat them in a series, now that they have key bench players Haslem and Chalmers hitting their strides and in full health. The Heat are going to win, and how will you feel about Lebron James when he wins, will you still hate him, or will you love him for the phenomanal athlete and person he is?

    Agreed man. I don’t think this Miami meltdown is a sign of things to come. It was a meltdown of epic proportions for sure but it still doesn’t take away from the fact that Miami has been the better team for a very large portion of this series. The Mavericks were lucky that the Heat let down for 7 minutes. Dirk Nowitzki was something else in those last few minutes and the Heat went back to their old ways earlier in the season of bad shots. It’s another lesson learned for the Miami Heat who have shown us all season that they do have the resilience to overcome these types of things. All the adversity has made them a better team and I don’t see why this will be any different. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I’d love to hear what you have to say. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/06/02/dirk-nowitzki-hasnt-been-good-enough/

    The HEAT got the 3 Top Scorers of the 2010 Cavs, Raptors, and Heat.

    They’ll likely win via blowouts if they want to.

    For the Heat: a loss, simulated or not, will hopefully give some semblance of competition,
    and therewith some credibility to that championship trophy.

    Some might root for the Mavs to win it,
    probably hoping that this “short-cutting to glory” by big market teams will be discouraged.

    Yea, the Heat will win this one, even if they lose the next game, they will still win. No one can beat the Heat in a series, especially with their bench healthy and full, that was their weakness all season.
