NBA Finals; Game 1 Thread
Asking Indiana to give LeBron the benefit of the doubt is like beating a dead horse. Indiana is pretty much the biggest LeBron hater on this site lmao.
How does Marion make it all the way to the NBA with that technique? Was there not a HS or AAU coach telling him to adjust it a bit?
I guess I'm just wondering why he shoots that way.
Wade needed that three badly.
I don't like LeBron, but I respect his game and the improvements he's made.
In my opinion though, a foul is a foul. I just want to see it called equally at both ends. I want to see an equal series with consistent refereeing.
so dirk ommmmmm,,... where the hell you at
sidenote- im glad i changed my name, this one shorter,
there you go dirk
I don't think Joel Anthony is doing anything differently than Pau and Ibaka. Dirk is simply missing extremely difficult shots that he's been making all playoffs
And he just made that three.
You asked where Dirk was and he shot it right in your eye.
Oh snap. There he is.
"Mama there goes that man."
Dirk heard my callout
Chalmers is way better than Bibby. Offensively and defensively.
"Chalmers is way better than Bibby. Offensively and defensively."
I agree. I don't know why the Heat start Bibby. He's TERRIBLE! Veru poor defender and can't even make wide open 3's.
Chandler doing what he do.
Contract year too.
I have to give bosh credit he is carrying the heat right now
I'll be surprised if Bibby plays another minute in this series if Chalmers keeps hitting like this.
Wow. The refs let the Mavericks make their subs even though they were obviously late while earlier in the game, LeBron was a second late and wasn't allowed in. They really screwed that up. Miami could have tossed the ball in and caught the Mavs off guard.
Nice to see more racism in Hollywood...Green Lantern,Captin America,X MEN....ALL WHITE! Why cant any of them be black or mexican Superman should be like Puerto Rican
The Mavs finding a lot of holes in this amazing Heat defense... Heat have to make some adjustments because the Mavs missed A LOT of wide open shots. You can't count on that to keep happening.
All Dallas has to do is not turn the ball over, finish off defensive possessions with the rebound and then just make open shots. IF they do that, I'd say they have an amazing chance to win game one.
And that D. Rose commercial goes hard...
Because the villains are usually Mexican..
Not racist, I'm Mexican
Are we all going to just ignore the fact Miami is playing good D on Dirk?
I think Wade is just waiting for Game 3 and then he will dominate the rest of the series.
Miami has defended Dirk like I thought they would... Doubling him and making him pass the ball... Being physical with him. They've done a great job.
He's on pace for 26 points and 8 of 18 shooting though. Not to mention, he's made most of the right passes.
I expect Dirk to have a better second half.
And another miss for Bibby..
I don't understand how Dirk didn't get that foul call during Dallas' first possession. And Bibby is struggling... Get Rio in there. IF Bibby isn't making shots, he's a no good pointless player.
We didn't get a good look at the block so we don't know if it was all ball or if he had some hand.
Brenda Haywood getting hung...
i know chalmers is missing thress but cmon terry you can never leave someone that wide open
Kidd defending Wade fine to me...
this game seems extremely slow, no crowd action, all set plays
bet me 100 on the mavs......i took him up on his offer, gonna be the easiest hundred of my life lol.
wow....yall see that graphic that said JUAN HOWARD is first fab five player in the nba final. If I was JALEN ROSE Id be a lil pizzzzzed!!!!
I expected him to be good, but not from the outside. Pretty interesting.
you prolly just tuned in but this game has been tight(down by 4 cmon you serious), games not over yet..wouldn't you look stupid if mavs came back and won
That's a BAD call on Dirk. Terrible call. Just disgusting.
Alright anyone think the refs are trying to give the game to the heat
Really?! None of that please. I don't want to hear anything after Dirks phenomenal 144 trips to the line this post season.
25-17 Bench Scoring... Miami winning. That's surprising.
Calls on Dirk and Chanlder were pathetic.
the haslam call was bull, and dirk was not a foul, cmon even the announcers said theyre getting calls because theyre the home team, this not anything personal
I'd like to see LeBron defend Dirk instead of Terry...
clean strip and foul and this is not rigged, this is just a counteract to marion
huge block and huge shot!
Comin up in the 4th.
Definitely a clean strip by Dirk lmfao.
But that shot by Wade was just fantastic...
im not denying the heat talent awesome block and 3 by wade and that dunk was sick but some calls are horrible...
I'm not trying to be funny or bitter... I've already made it known I don't like either team.
But... Where was the foul on the LeBron dunk? And how did LeBron just get away with that travel on that last play???
i guess the refs are trying to make up for it.. lebron was hit in the head and dirk missed that and wasnt fouled
edit- i not a fan of the heat or mavs but refs suck
lebron should get at least two travelings call at each game, i`m from brazil and in our league that kind of plays are called traveling every single time but in the nba you can get away with it.
