mia vs bos:

lebron will take this game extremely personal, more than wade and bosh.

lebron will have a triple double. wade does his job and comes thru in the clutch. while bosh hits needed shots and provides needed length. heat pull it off.

I don't know

I'm torn on this one. But if the Heat do pull it off, all of that will probably have to happen.

I hope the HEAT win, but

I hope the HEAT win, but LeBron has been down 2-3 four times in his career. He has lost every one of them. I also believe the HEAT have lost something like 15 of 16 at Boston. Neither are very good stats.

The pressure is maybe on

The pressure is maybe on LeBron almost more than the Miami team as a whole as some of them won the title back in 2006 and with KD's Thunder now in the finals. If KD won a title before LeBron that would be a major achievement.

A LeBron vs KD final would be great but as a neutral I'd love to see KG in one more final along with Ray Allen.

Rondo needs to get a triple double

Miami is not going away easy.

I'm giving it to the Celtics,

I'm giving it to the Celtics, Boston is a tough area to play in if you're not wearing green and the vets seem more focused and passionate than ever.

Bron and Wade are so talented it's gonna be a dog fight, but I give the edge to Boston....by 3

LOL

Where is Wade's head at? I know its poor taste, but has Delonte West been with Wade's mom too cuz he's been absent minded. And yeah I agree I think Lebron will take this game personally. Not to mention I'm pretty sure he know's KD is going to the finals, and it would be poor taste not to atleast make a final stand there in Boston.

Chalmers with 2 and Cole with 1 in the 1st quarter. Miami isn't deep enough to weather a lot of foul trouble.

Celtics looking an awful lot

Celtics looking an awful lot like they did early in game 5. Missing open shots and free throws and not helping the cause with silly TOs. They need to calm down. How will the Heat respond to the eventual Celtics run?

Boston needs to weather the storm right now, and keep the game close as long as possible. I'de live to see Rondo play more aggressive and attack the hoop

His presence is being felt. Spoelstra was smart bringing him back out onto the floor.

Lebron is feeling it. I don't know why so many young guys don't work on the mid-range game. It's so effective when you have the body to get your shot off.

WOW Lebron is heating it up!

WOW Lebron is heating it up! Havn't been watching the game but I looked at the boxscore and with 3 minutes to go in the Lebron has 25 pts on 10-11 fgs. Hopefully he can keep this up, I want him to succeed just so he shuts all his haters up.

Lebron should pass early and shoot late.

Kid plays backward. Phil jackson would have him get the other guys going then shoot late. Lebton takes them out of the game gunning.

Wade

He's looking like Mo williams right now. But he's been having better second halfs, so we'll see if he gets it going.

Credit to LeBron for a stellar first half. Keeping it up will be difficult but either result I think it's evident he is pouring his all into this game.

Wow @ the tech on KG lol. They should've called the foul on Haslem before that holding his arm.

I don't like the Celtics intensity at both ends this game. They need to pick it up.

I hope the game gets close to see if LeBron can continue this.

Agreed the tech was BS. Wasn't the nicest way for Garnett to give the guy the ball but you just gotta let that go.

Even if Lebron has 50 and the Heat win the game....

Skip Bayless will still say some crap against Lebron tomorrow...

I agree with akhan

He'll probably pull some crap like, "Yeah but he didn't make enough passes to Bosh to get him in rhythm."

This is a legendary performance and one of the greatest games of his career. Simply ridiculous.

Wonder if he'll have any left in the tank later in the game as he's played every minute so far.

Boston just can't put a run together. They need to start knocking down some of these open threes.

This is the best I've seen Lebron play in a long time...

The thing I like most about

The thing I like most about LeBron this game is that he's posting up almost every possession. The move he did when he posted up and faded away to the left shoulder was probably the most decisive move I've seen him do in the low post.

When he's shooting like this, there's really nothing you can do. He's a streaky shooter and he's feeling it right now.

What a disappointing performance so far for the Celtics. Too many turnovers, poor shooting, bad execution on offense. Very disappointing for a close out game at home.

I don't agree that Boston is making all of the right plays. They're missing shots, but I don't like their offense this game. They're not executing as well and the ball isn't moving.

Boston has been flat at both ends and hasn't brought that energy required to close out a series.

KD

Will more than likely be the best scorer on the planet (If not already) for years. But to be the best player, you have to be complete all around. And every player has holes to his game, but Lebron can do just about everything. And he can guard just about every position.

The entire starting line-up is still in, not to mention Bosh that just came back from injury.

Let's not sell Kevin Durant

Let's not sell Kevin Durant short though. He's defended everyone from Dirk Nowitzki, Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant and Tony Parker these playoffs. And if they play the Heat in the Finals, we will see him defend LeBron, Wade and even Bosh. Rebounding wise, they're about even.

LeBron is the better ball handler and passer (has better court vision), but I think Durant is the more skilled and complete offensive player. LeBron is hot tonight, but Durant shoots like this consistently.

Kevin Durant won me over because when games get close, I feel like he gets even better. He's had the look LeBron does right now, like the entire playoffs.

I look forward to seeing them settle this in the NBA Finals. IF the Heat win this series, I will watch every second of the NBA Finals. I won't even change the channel during commercials lol.

Has LeBron not guarded

Has LeBron not guarded everyone from Rondo to Garnett? It's not like Durant has done anything LeBron hasn't defensively. Durant is probably the better scorer, but as an overall player I don't see how anyone can pick against LeBron.

The Thunder have beat the only three teams that have represented the Western Conference in the last 13 NBA Finals in these playoffs alone.

The only thing that holds me

The only thing that holds me back from comparing Durant and LeBron is:

1. LeBron's passing ability is second to none (non-point guards)

2. His ability to control the tempo.

Durant cannot, for the life of him, control the tempo of the game. That's what Westbrook and Harden do. LeBron can change the entire tempo of the game without even scoring, whereas Durant struggles if his jump-shot isn't dropping.

LeBron's vision and passing

LeBron's vision and passing ability, along with his body/athleticism, are his greatest gifts. Durant will never have those.
