The biggest obstacle is re-signing Lance Stephenson, an unrestricted free agent this summer, but Bird and Vogel want to keep him even with all the headaches in the Conference Finals. Read More »

Watch Miami Mash Indiana To Move On To The Finals

Norris Cole, LeBron James, Dwyane Wade

There were a lot of extraneous matters to discuss about the series-clinching Game 6 win by the Heat on Friday night, but we don’t want that to take away from the focused basketball played by a Miami team looking to win their third consecutive title. The Pacers fought them every step of the way again, but they couldn’t force a Game 7 at home they had played so hard for during the regular season. Read More »
