Heat @ Lakers
This is what I'm talking about! Two of the top 5 players in the league going at it.
Kobe is not Human. It's like he could miss 20 shots in a row and then make a hundred 30 foot fadeaways in a row.
This is where I want to see Lebron take over the game. He needs to take over.
This is NBA Basketball!!!
I'm feeling that Kobe commercial
thye've been waiting 3 1/2 quarters to air it
LBJ on Kobe...
Let's see how smart Kobe plays. Will he force it to prove a point or make the right plays.
If you were going to engineer a basketball player in a lab to make him the most homicidally competitive and ridiculously confident and great player, that player would be MJ or Kobe. Only they can go 3-17 and then hit 4 Threes in a row.
how in the &$#%#&@! is that not a travel on lebron? You can not stand up after diving for a ball. he never even dribbled. He just doved, rolled and then stood up.
Wow... LeBron caught the ball and rolled over on the floor, and then got up? That's not a travel???
He let the ball go while rolling, it showed on the replay.
The 3's come out at night!
Yes Lebron! Yes! Take those shots!(Well, not a fadeaway with a hand in his face specifically, but you get the idea)
Ray Allen took 3 steps
But I feel if the Heat hadn't played last night, this game wouldn't even had been close.
who cares, every team plays back to back. Who knows. How things go
Even though there's like a 3.4% chance of it happening, I really want the a Heat-Lakers problem. The only problem is that I can't possibly see them even winning 2 games against OKC, Hard to see them beating the Spurs, and they'd really need to solve a lot of issues to even knock off the Clipper. It's a 3 team race, and the Lakers' best shot is the be that 4th team, although they'd probably need to go through all three unless they makea huge run.
Wow, I have no words for Kobe right now.
Robert Sacre has Brian Scalabrine potential, I can see it oozing out of him, a legend has been born tonight.
Can I please take free throws for Dwight?
I think Lebron just closed the case on this one.
Teams play back to back all the time. But Kobe and Dwight the next game? Thats hard to do no matter what team you are. They aren't hitting anything from the perimeter which is where MIami is best at. And they are still leading. That should honestly tell you something.
true, but kobe was 3/17 to start. How often does that happen? Whoever won was gonna be feelign a little lucky.
Ron Artest with another stupid shot with Nash wide open on the elbow
damn, sucks. But the real challenge this year is making the playoffs. 3 1/2 games out. Gotta bounce back.
Lebron is better now because of father time otherwise same age Kobe wins by a longshot. I know I'm going to get some hate for that, but it's just my personnel opinion.
Lakers are fortunate that the Mavericks are struggling or else that would be another team to worry about.
So I guess the Lakers are 2-1 now?
Someone should start a post game thread! Where's @Lebron's Hairline?.... He'd def start it
Heat 68 paint points
Lakers 28 paint points
Heat 6 turnovers
Lakers 20 turnovers
In the paint. Against two seven footers...
Most in transition and wide open layups.
Lakers have serious communication problems on defense.
two things i have to say,
1. i was wrong about wade being over the hump...he may be getting there soon but i was wrong in assuming he was WAY over it. the way he played tonight reminded me of the old flash and if he can somehow keep it consistent...the heat will not be beaten.
2. lebrons jumpshot has improved significantly over the years and i feel like it has been overlooked. rmbr when ppl called him lebrick? and ppl said he will never be as good as kobe because he cant shoot for shit. look at him now. 39.8% from behind the arc...and hes form is actually very nice. he needs to start getting credit for that along with all his other accolades. take in that although KD does attempt many more threes a game hes shooting 40.2%. anyhow lebron still needs to work on his fts cuzhe still misses way too often in crunch time.
Dwayne Wade didn't start the year 100% healthy or in shape. He was bad at the beginning of the year and looked like he had lost multiple steps in athleticism. That being said, he has got healthy and in shape and now he seems only a notch below his athleticism we remember. He is having an awesome season, just not awesome compared to younger Wade. He is getting 20ppg on 50% FG. He is playing good defense too.
Steve Nash needs to shoot the ball more, and Howard needs to get more touches when he plays a team with a weak frontcourt like Miami.
