    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Dallas has already made this series uncomfortable for Chris Bosh. Primarily covered by Tyson Chandler, Bosh has struggled, as Tom Haberstroh detailed at ESPN. This isn’t just a product of missing midrange jumpers. While he’s shot just 3-for-11 this series on long 2s, the real issue is the chip shots around the basket. Inside 10…

    Miami Heat Dwayne Wade goes for a slam a

    The series is tied, and teams are 11-0 when winning the third game of a 2-3-2 series tied 1-1. The Heat have looked unstoppable and then collapsed.

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Game 2 ended in as dramatic a fashion as any NBA finals game ever. But can the Mavericks carry that momentum over, or did the Heat just take their foot off the gas? Heat players didn’t talk about the stagnant offense at the end of the game, they talked about being flat on defense. At…

    After the Mavericks made their incredible comeback in Game 2,  erasing all of a 15-point Miami lead with just over seven minutes remaining, there were some in the media who were looking to make something out of nothing.

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Whoops. That didn’t go how the Heat planned, I’m betting. So Saturday at Heat practice, Erik Spoelstra has to regroup the Heat mentally and emotionally to prepare them for a Game 3 that’s pretty much insanely important. (“OMG NO TEAM HAS EVER WON/LOST THE FINALS AFTER LOSING/WINNING GAME 3 IN A 2-3-2 FORMAT AFTER SPLITTING…

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Give Dallas credit — this is not their first massive comeback these playoffs. They are in the finals because they executed better at the end of games better than any team in the West. This is a veteran team that does not easily fluster and they started running a fantastic staggered screen for Jason Terry…

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Miami had a 15 point lead in this game because of their defense. But after they went up 15 they took their foot off the gas when Dallas got focused. You can see it all on this play — Dirk Nowitzki‘s game winning shot. The Heat have a foul to give (Nowitzki said he started…

    Jun 3, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    It became the hot topic Thursday night after the Dallas Mavericks evened the NBA finals 1-1 with a 95-93 win in Game 2 — how Miami’s celebration midway through the fourth quarter sparked Dallas’ comeback.

    Jun 3, 2011, 2:53 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    From where we sit now, it’s so easy to look back at the dissipation of Miami’s 15-point fourth-quarter lead and point incredulously at what went wrong. The answers for what ails the Heat are always so obvious; their flaws are so glaring and fixable that armchair coaches across the country typically resolve them before Mark…

    “Hang in. Hang around. Keep believing.” Those were the messages that Rick Carlisle was preaching to his Mavericks in the timeout huddle, with his team facing a 15-point deficit with just over seven minutes remaining in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. Apparently, Carlisle’s guys were listening. Dallas put together a stunning comeback, closing the…

    Jun 3, 2011, 12:18 AM EST

    Kidd over LeBron

    After a regular season defined by crunch-time blunders and late collapses, the Heat’s postseason had been defined by gritty closing performances that saw the Heat holding onto close leads or pulling off comebacks in the fourth quarter. All of that changed during Thursday night’s 95-93 loss, which may end up being Miami’s most important game…

    The one-year anniversary is just over a month away. As television, “The Decision” ranks somewhere up there with “Manimal” and “B.J. and the Bear.” But unlike those Neilson losers, “The Decision,” to a degree, continues to rate as meaningful media. From this travesty, there actually has been a payoff. Thursday, as he prepared for Game…

  16. Miami shredded the Dallas zone in Game 1

    Jun 1, 2011, 12:20 PM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Dallas has counted on its zone defense as more than just a change of pace. In a series where Tyson Chandler might have to chase Chris Bosh out on the perimeter, the zone could be a way to keep Chandler in the paint protecting the rim. But in Game 1, the Heat just shredded it.…

    Jun 1, 2011, 8:10 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    It was one fo the interesting questions coming into Game 1: Both the Heat and Mavericks had dominated late in games in the playoffs. That’s why both had advanced, both executed under pressure. So who would win the battle when they faced off. LeBron James and Dywane Wade would. We should have guessed that. The…

  18. NBA Finals: Miami balances star power with rebounding grit in Game 1 win

    Jun 1, 2011, 2:26 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    All that it’s taken for the Miami Heat to win games in this year’s playoffs is the ability to maintain reasonable margins. They go on runs, they shut down their opponents’ offensive options, and they stretch their legs with displays of supreme athleticism, but the body of the single-game narrative — the initial 43 or…

  19. NBA Playoffs: Dallas shooters go cold… or was it the Heat?

    Jun 1, 2011, 1:34 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    It will be the “chicken or the egg” question out of Game 1, and we will not really know the answer until we are well along in this series. Did the Dallas Mavericks just miss shots, or did the Miami Heat make them miss? Because the key Dallas shooters were shooting like they played for…

  20. NBA Playoffs: Heat move ball, make shots, play defense, draw first blood

    Jun 1, 2011, 1:15 AM EST

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game One

    Coming into the NBA Finals, everyone was expecting a battle between Dallas’ smooth, sweet-shooting, ball-movement heavy offense and Miami’s aggressive, swarming, athletic, grinding defense.

    Denver Nuggets v Miami Heat

    LeBron James is a big Ohio State fan, he’s been on the sidelines during Buckeye football games. He knows Jim Tressel.

  22. Kareem writes open letter to Pippen about LeBron, Jordan

    May 31, 2011, 2:09 PM EST

    Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

    Everyone has climbed all over Scottie Pippen in recent days for putting LeBron James on the same pedestal with Michael Jordan, calling Jordan the best scorer of all time but LeBron a potentially better all around player. At best it felt a little premature. In Chicago that was blasphemy. Now Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has entered the…
