What else could describe a slow but very succinct defensive meltdown Dallas put on the Heat? Dirk had what…the last 9 points?
Hollywood as hell fade away jumpers from all points all over the map but what actually had the chance to go in. No going to the hole at home on the final possessions? Open Dirk, Dirk taking Bosh to the cup with a torn middle finger on Miami’s pulse Dirk. Mike Breen loves Dirk. Everything Dirk. Victorious Dirk. Here come the Bird comparisons again Dirk. Dirk this, Dirk that. Miami muffed up and let Dirk attack.
If you want to win a title you better take it away from LeBron Dirk.
You gotta give credit where credit is due. Miami lapsed defensively and Dirk made them pay…dearly…and now go back home for three. The Mavs could actually end it after looking bad these past two games. Last night should have been a blow out win for the Mavs because Miami hung around solely because of talent.
You can best believe in a similar situation later in the series someone else will guard Dirk.
Wade went off. Dig his line below. He was stellar. Bosh didn’t have a good game and looked lost offensively and defensively. He was praying for help it seemed on the last possession guarding Dirk. He didn’t fight hard enough to get around the Chandler screen that resulted in Dirk’s go ahead three before Chalmers (Big time Jason Terry’s fault) answered.
Dallas did their thing on the boards 41-30 and won despite having 18 turnovers to Miami’s 12.
Marion had his third straight big game. Tyson Chandler even had 13. Jason Terry bounced back with 16.
Miami doesn’t have the bench fire punch (Dallas won bench battle 23-11) to carry this team when one of their three stars are off. Mike Bibby did have his best game since AZ National Final it seemed and scored 14.
Where was the foul Miami had to give on last possession? Where was the double team? Where was Joel Anthony, Udonis Haslem or yeah LBJ on Dirk?
Spo…talk to me fam…you blew this one…
If LeBron James wants to win a title he has to be more than just a facilitator and be aggressive when he must because if Dallas wins this series the entire world of Miami haters that exist are coming for him. In this distorted world, that’s just the breaks. Coming for him from the media and the fans and real fake fans who think everything fake is great. Twitter is quiet as hell when Miami wins but uproarious when the Heat lose.
Hi hater. Honestly, all Dallas is doing now is prolonging the inevitable national head exploding day surely to come. I’m still going with the Heat in five and that was no celebration. What a ridiculous display of idiosyncratic nonsense by my peers trying to do anything and everything to poke and prod the Heat.
Each series Miami got a clunker out the way and last night Dallas capitalized. Dynamic new teams need to learn how to win and the sting of a loss on a path to greatness starts with defeat.
LeBron…Game 3 is your time to shine. Do that like I know you will.
In the eleven times the 2-3-2 format was tied at 1, the Game 3 winner has won eleven times.
