On the final possession of last night’s game between the Heat and the Pacers, Miami trailed by two with a chance to either send the game into overtime or end the series with a three.

One of the complaints (we made it, too) centered on how unselfish he was, particularly with the game on the line. Now — even after winning a title the last two years while capturing a fourth MVP award — the still-tired trope has surfaced again. Read More »

Through 36 minutes of basketball in Game 5 between the Pacers and Heat tonight, LeBron James had exactly two points.

Stephenson said LeBron James‘ trash talking in Game 3 was “a sign of weakness,” and after this afternoon’s shootaround in Indiana before a pivotal Game 5 tonight, Stephenson remarked that he should have kept his mouth shut about the four-time MVP.

Chris Bosh, Paul George, LeBron James

In a little over five minutes on Monday night, Chris Bosh had already exceeded his point total in each of his three previous games against the Pacers. His 10 first-quarter points and 17-point first half was the biggest x-factor for why the Heat overwhelmed the Pacers for a 3-1 edge heading back to Indiana. It was also a reminder of what can happen when Bosh gets involved in the offense early. Read More »
