Beyond The Buzzer:
Dwyane Wade has scored under 20 points in 12 straight games – the longest streak of his career. Chris Bosh has failed to reach double digit scoring in three straight games for the first time since his rookie year. Point blank, they’re struggling, but Wade says the cure is they need a bigger role in the Heat offense going into Game 7.
According to ESPN:
“We’ve got to do a good job of making sure me and Chris have our opportunities to succeed throughout the game,” Wade said. “That’s something we’re going to have to look at as a team.”
Wade implied James is trying to do too much.
“We’ve got guys individually who want to play better,” Wade said. “But we’ve got to try to help each other out in this locker room and not leave it up to the individual to self-will it.”
BEST OF MAXIM
Remember D Wade was the mastermind behind the formation of the Big 3. He also envision himself on the same level as LeBron James.
He figured LeBron would do all the work and he would be the closer. If the Heat faltered, LeBron would get all the blame and for a while that is exactly how it worked.
But, then LeBron became Jay-Z and Wade turned into Damon Dash. It is starting to bother...
Miami Heat guard Dwyane Wade clearly isn’t the player he’s been, as he continues to be impacted by a bone bruise on his right knee. While the ailment is causing limited production from the All-Star, he told reporters yesterday that he’ll continue to play through the injury during Monday’s pivotal Game 7 against the Indiana Pacers.Coach Erik Spoelstra spoke with the team’s...
Chris Bosh was supposed to be one of the Big 3 in Miami. Bosh, himself, even went as far as to say he should be in the Hall of Fame back in January. That's all great and all. I mean, why not? Why shouldn't a top-tier athlete have that much much confidence in their game? They're supposed to be confident, right? Well, Bosh's confidence is fine, but his game needs some...
Chris Bosh gave the nation the creepiest moment of the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals, so now the memes have to creep on him a little bit.
Heat big men have to start getting out of the way when Paul George starts to elevate.
The Pacers star has now posterized Chris “Birdman” Andersen and Chris Bosh during the Eastern Conference Finals. George’s posterization of Bosh came on Saturday night during Indiana’s Game 6 win over Miami. (Side note: Do posters still even exist?)
George couldn’t be stopped in Game 6...
Mark and McNeill chatted about the panic surrounding the Miami Heat, concern over Dwyane Wade, Masai Ujiri bolting Denver for Toronto, Grant Hill's retirement, Dwight Howard wanting to play for Houston and the coaching carrousel.
LeBron James complained about having to do it all. Dwyane Wade complained about one guy trying to do it all. So far, after one half of action in Game 7 it seems like the Miami Heat got their act together. LeBron has been LeBron so far and the rest of the Heat have stepped up as well.
It was close after the first, 21-19 in favor of Indiana, but the Heat exploded in the second outscoring...
The Indiana Pacers forced a Game 7 last night, but the play of the game came when Paul George dunked on Chris Bosh.
Late in the 1st quarter George was on the fast break; he dribbled by Norris Cole and threw down a monstrous one hand jam on Chris Bosh. This is George’s 2nd big dunk of the conference finals, earlier in the series he dunked on Chris Anderson.
George is turning himself...
Taken during Game 6 by a couple guys who snuck down courtside (full story via Deadspin). Riley is such a smug jag, anyone who can make him look like this is a hero. That’s why I’m nominating Chris Bosh for sainthood. 1 more 9-and-6 and Riles might commit a murder suicide.
Parker Pulls For Indiana
LeBron Fouled Out??!!?
Paul George put Chris Bosh on a poster with this insane dunk in transition late in the first quarter, but then LeBron James answered in a big way.
After all the buildup and nonsense over the weekend, of course this series would end in a Miami blowout. What could have been a dramatic will the Heat be able to pull together? kind of game turned into a Miami romp over the Pacers. The Heat won 99-76 thanks to a typical LeBron James performance, an atypical Dwyane Wade performance and a monster second quarter. Read more… ...
Due to the success of the Miami Heat going small in last season's playoffs, Erik Spoelstra further embraced the concept in strategy and in personnel.
The Heat had the best regular season record in the NBA and posted excellent numbers, but their lack of size has been an issue against the frontcourt of the Indiana Pacers.
Pat Riley was sold on the practice by Spoelstra, though...
