    The schedule I checked on ESPN said that game 3 & 4 are in Dallas & 5 in Miami. Now it seems that either they posted it wrong or I read it wrong. If I would have known that the NBA was sticking to its 2-3-2 format in the Finals I would have probably gone Heat in 6 instead of 5. If they had not blown that lead it would be 3-0 now. Gonna have to say that my original pick was incorrect & go with Heat taking back to Miami & winning in game 6. Game 4 is now HUGE.

    If Miami keeps playing like that have they could still close it out in Dallas though.

    It's wrong. 2-3-2 format for finals.

    That was D Wades night and they had no answer for him. Lebron was the quietest I'd seen him in awhile, but he's very comfortable in a secondary role it'd seem.
    I'm not sure how you reach that conclusion with one game. LeBron dominated Game 1 and all of the ECF, with Wade being borderline terrible for most of the ECF AND Game 1. LeBron had a bad shooting night, and so he affected games in other way, with two spectacular passes/assists, especially that rocket one handed bounce pass to Bosh for a dunk.

    Wasn't a dig at Lebron. All I meant was that Lebron doesn't mind being number 2 if Wade(or Bosh) are being unstoppable. He doesn't feel like he has to "get his" or he'll pout. If he has the hot hand he doesn't mind being the primary guy himself obviously.

    Miami up at half time by 2...start of 3rd. No team has ever come back from being down 3-1 in the NBA Finals....

    I am loving the Mavs beating the MoHeatos. LeBron has really disappeared in the 4th quarter of the last two games. Good for him.

    I'm giddy over the possibility of Stern having to hand the trophy to Cuban. I know it's not over yet, but that would be must see TV.

    That is exactly what makes him NOT ANYWHERE NEAR A JORDAN. Jordan wanted the ball, no matter what. So did Bird and Magic. Jordan, Bird and Magic made their own teams better. Lebron just joined a team that he thought could win. And now he isn't there when they need him. Dirk is the man.

    BTW- If you all aren't watching the NHL finals, you are missing some really good stuff.

    Agree. I've been a hockey fan for about 25 years now, but I have to admit these playoffs have been the best in a long time. Interesting that Bill Simmons just wrote a glowing article on the Stanley Cup finals (and hockey in general).
