Heat vs Spurs

Who do you have for tonight's game? I'm leaning toward a bounce back game from the Spurs when they get home. But the Heat really blew that game out the other night.

Spurs are older and will be a

Spurs are older and will be a little more fatigued. It will get progressivly harder for them to win because of rest. I'm taking the Heat with another blowout.

The average age of the Heat is three years more than the Spurs, so...

Also dont even try that in

Also dont even try that in terms of professional basketball 3 years can be significant. The difference in age of of lets say 30 to 33 is signifigant in terms of athleticism.

I'm not so sure the Spurs rely heavily on athleticism lol, and tell that to Birdman.

Yeah I sew what you mean plus

Yeah I see what you mean plus with Pop managing minutes they are in good hands, I'm just not sure the spurs can keep up all game.

Props to the Spurs for making

Props to the Spurs for making me look like an idiot thus far. Theyve been one of my favorite teams outside of the Raptors for the past 6 years and they a reminding me why.

Heat in a close game. It

Heat in a close game. It should be close, but I think the Spurs are just a little more reliant on knocking down their jump shots and they probably won't be quite as hot from downtown as the previous games. How effective the Spurs are at creating opportunities in the lane for Parker will be the key.

Spurs bounce back and lead

Spurs bounce back and lead for the entire game. But then LeBron hits a game-winner.

Just my stupid guess. Don't care who wins, really. I want a great game.

I think the Spurs will

I think the Spurs will execute a lot better this game and the ball will move more. I also think Tim Duncan plays better than he did last game. I don't think the Heat role players will play as well as they did last game.

I'll take the Spurs.

As much as I want to say the Heat win, I don't see the Spurs losing their first Finals home game after 6 long years.

Also, I don't know how much Wade can give them tonight so I see the Spurs taking this one. I'm rooting for the Heat but the odds are undeniable for this game.

All I want is a good game though. A 3-4 point win for either team would be nice.

g

gotta love Mike Miller.. dude doesnt play all year, but comes in ready to play for the playoffs and does his job shooting 3s.. Bosh 0 of 4 outside the paint.. If he doesnt knock those open jumper, he's basically useless lol

I hope Duncan is okay.

I hope Duncan is okay. Although he is my 3rd least favorite player (behind Boozer and Pau, of course), the Spurs need him and this series needs him. He's the ultimate PF and one of the best this game's seen. Dude's got my respect.

And a side note... Gary Neal. Whenever he shoots it, I swear to God, I feel like it's going in. He has no conscience telling him "don't shoot it, Gary!" He provides some good offense off that Spurs bench.

LeBron James

Has been shut down. I never thought I'd see the day. They close off the pain, he can't make a jump shot to save his life, and he's forced to become a player that sets up others. Just wow, the Spurs have put everything into shutting him down.

The Spurs have been insane in these finals with all the scramble points and crazy shots. They have made so many crazy last second shots already. The Heat looked better for most of that 1st half, but the Spurs got the lead because they just don't miss. Both teams are getting nice looks.

Kawhi Leonard does all the little things. If TD is the Big Fundamental, Leonard should be coined the Big Intangible.

I know LeBron padded his

I know LeBron padded his stats the last game in the blowout, but he's really struggled offensively the last two games IMO.

Other than Mike Miller, the Heat's role players haven't showed up. Tim Duncan having a much better game. The ball is moving more for the Spurs... Parker has 8 assists and hasn't looked for his own offense as much.

Does anyone else remember

Does anyone else remember when Lebron used his face up game to destroy the celtics last year, were he could hot his mid range,blow by his defender, and see where the help is coming? I haven't seen him do that one time in this game.

Lebron is heating up a bit. Little confidence going into the fourth. Spurs organization is the best in basketball.
