    Miami Heat v Dallas Mavericks - Game Five

    On a night when there were hot shooters all over the court, Jason Terry was just ridiculous. He finished 8-of-12 shooting for 21 points. He was 5-of-9 from beyond 16 feet and he had key threes. But this is the one everyone will remember — the dagger three taken from roughly Fort Worth with a…

    As you would expect, Dwyane Wade said the bruised hip (that’s what it is being called officially) he suffered in the first quarter of Game 5 wouldn’t matter come Sunday and a must-win Game 6 for Miami. “No problem, I’ll be good for Game 6,” Wade said in his post-game press conference, broadcast on NBA…

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    Officially, Brendan Haywood is a game time decision for Game 5. Officially, I have a chance of getting a date with Minka Kelly. Both of these things have about the same chance of happening.

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Two

    We all kept talking about it and marveling at it during the Heat’s defeats against Boston and Chicago to reach the NBA finals — LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were playing together. Not next to each other, they were working off the ball to get open when the other had the ball, they were running…

    LeBron James had a usage rate of 20.5 last game — meaning when he was on the floor 20.5 percent of the time a play ended with a James shot, turnover or trip to the free throw line. That is his lowest number in any regular season or playoff game this past season. And according…
