I got home and started watching the Heat game. I turned on the t.v. and Noah was being thrown out, Gibson was thrown out, and Miami was up by 40.
What in the world happened?!
The game was very physical from the beginning. Refs kept throwing Techs around. Then Chicago had nobody scoring and stopped playing their normal defense. The Refs then in the 2nd half threw out a few bad calls. Noah wanted none of that and just ran off the bench screaming (2nd tech) then Gibson started cussing out the refs and it was Goodbye gibson. Bulls just sorta fell apart and went away from the way they play basketball and the Heat kept hitting shots. but hey they got the split in miami, can't complain about that.
The Refs let the game get out of hand, and called a very one sided game (tends to happen in Miami games). I thoroughly enjoyed watching Nazr Mohammed's dribbling exhibition at the end though lol
"tends to happen in Miami games..."
Try telling that to Knicks fans.
Taj gonna get fined, maybe Joakim too.
1st... Bulls got uncomfortable when the Heat responded to their physical play with physical play. The refs made a lot of calls and threw out techs but the calls weren't in favor of either team.
2nd... Heat got the same looks they got in GM 1, only this time they made those shots.
3rd. Lebron had 19 first half points, opposed to 2 first half points in GM 1
4th... Nate Rob came back to reality
"4th nate rob came back to reality".............. No he didn't? He's been playing his play all playoffs.. He's either on or he's not. He'll always get you a few threes or so. he's only been superhuman in the clutch, there was no clutch time in this game. Nate's a very talented scorer off the bench.. simple as that.
The Bulls also never got uncomfortable with the Heat's physicality. The heat's physicality came from pushes, shoves, etc not from basketball plays. The Refs clearly gave the heat a few calls, it's like the announcer said that Noah and Gibson had every right to lash out like that as the game was over anyways. Gibson will gladly take a 25k fine and go on with his day.
In my opinion, you sound like you dislike the Heat. That's how it looks to me. To say the refs gave the Heat some calls is pointless. It didnt affect the game. The refs also gave the Bulls some calls. That happens in every game. It's not like a MAJOR call was made today to sway or change the outcome of the game. Bad calls were made and missed for both teams.
You bringing up the point that the announcer said Noah and Gibson had the right to lash out doesnt mean anything. It has no merit at all because that announcer is a former Bulls player Steve Kerr. Just listening to the game, I could tell who he was pulling for. He's pro-Bulls so of course he's going to say that. The entire game he indirectly expressed his disapproval of the way the Heat were playing.
And just because he says that doesn't mean you act like that. Get a tech and get thown out, but you dont just show your Azz like that and act as if you wanna fight the referee. That's too much, express your frustrating and go get ready for next game.
Plus, Actually the Bulls were very uncomfortable with the Heat's physicality. The Heat as well as the Bulls both pushed and shoved and committed hard fouls. Dont act like the Bulls only make basketball plays because that's a lie. They got a taste of their own medicine this time and didnt like it. This game the Heat pushed and hit back and made some hard fouls themselves. But the game was won by the way the Heat out muscled them.
The Heat out rebounded the bigger and usually more physical Bulls 41-28. That's being more physical.
Heat outscored the Bulls in the paint 56-18. So thats proof there that the Heat played physical by doing more than pushing and shoving. They actually played physical basketball! Noah, Butler, and Gibson, can only combine for 18points in the paint? That right there is an example of them being uncomfortable with the Heat's physical play.
And to me, Nate Robinson scoring 27points on a Miam Heat defense is not reality. Tonight he scored 11 on 3-10 shooting, I think he came back to reality tonight. i dont care what he does against other teams, i know he's a streaky spark plug off the bench. But him scoring 27points against the Miami Heat in the playoff is not NORMAL to me.
I know what I'm talking about.
No you don't. You assume I hate the heat (Your mind's your worst enemy young fella, don't start assuming things). I never said the calls affected the game. I also was saying I agreed with what the announcer said but they still should've been T'd. In my opinion you sound like you like the heat (look I can assume pointlessly as well). The heat played good defense, that doesn't always equate to physicality, even if it wasn't physical thats not what I was referencing to, I was referencing to the fact that the heat seemed quick to start a fight or throw an elbow, that's not the type of physicality I was talking about. The way the bulls annoy people with physicality is different than physical defense as well, I just felt that when Chris Andersen attacked people when he had no chance at the ball it was kinda pointless and there were a couple of plays like that during the course of the game. Also I never said the Bulls didn't do non-basketball plays as well. You just like to assume things based on opinions of the other side.. Example if I said somebody did well, you'd think I was saying the guy who defended him was a bad defender.
And Miami's weakspot is C and PG, so its reasonable that Nate Robinson could go for 27 on the heat as he's one of their few scoring options. Nate's so underrated because of his height and his attitude, he's always been capable of playing like this because of his scoring abilities. He can't do it every night because he relies on shooting, but it's still a reality that he can do it on any given night, even the Heat players know that.
OK. your point?
I like the Heat, you dont.
You agree with Steve Kerr that the refs gave the Heat calls , I think both teams got away with some calls tonight.
You think Chris Anderson made dirty plays not on the ball. I think Anderson, Chalmers, Boozer, Cook, and Bellinelli all did.
You dont think the Bulls were uncomfortable. I think they were definitely bothered.
You dont think the Heat played physical basketball. I think 56-18 points in the paint and 41-28 on the glass is physical play.
You think nothing was different from Nate Rob. I think 11points against the Heat is more of reality than Nate scoring 27.
We have our own views from our own perspectives...
I agree to disagree.
Miami woke up,took care of business and got serious..Chicago seems to have their number...No way should Miami have gotten beaten by this team thats missing 3 starters.....
