Roy Hibbert once again going up soft.
Indiana looks awful tonight. No sense of purpose, no idea offensively...just bad
Mother of God, what a pass. Wade and LeBron are on the same page tonight. Fun to watch.
Looks like the heat are running away with it. the pass from wade was amazing though, right on the money
That's a foul on Battier... IF they're going to call that foul on Barbosa against Wade, they have to call that on Battier.
I can't watch this stupid game anymore.
These are not the same Pacers from games 2-4
The original Heat from before the All star break may have woken up. I'm not sure, but if it did these guys are dangerous.
Heat need to be real careful and not give the Pacers any confidence going into game six.
I think this is one of those games the Pacers just has to put behind them, like the Heat did after game four.
Come back and be ready to defend homecourt.
This game was just awful at both ends.
Don't forget though, you got two players that are banged up now. They will be a little hobbled.
stupid foul by Haslem.
Like the Heat did after game three I meant.
Two days in between games... I think both West and Granger should be ready. Granger's really didn't look that bad.
The player who should be most disappointed with today's performance is Roy Hibbert. He simply didn't show up.
Hopefully, the Pacers can push it to seven, but I thought all along this would be a six game series going to the Heat.
Wow... Are you f*cking kidding me...
This is ridiculous. I don't care if you root for the Heat or the Pacers. This is ridiculous man.
THE HEAT HAVE BECOME THE LAKERS OF THE EAST. So &$#%#&@! dirty lololol it was so blatant, I know I shouldn't be laughing...rofl but that foul was the most blatant foul. Pittman is gonna get fined and he should be suspended.
Both Haslem AND Pittman should be suspended. Just wow...
There's a difference between physical and dirty. That's sad man.
Indiana, didn't you say that Indiana would win in 6?
Very stupid of them to do this. They just risk Lebron and Wade getting hurt in game 6.
I've said from the beginning this would be a 6 or possibly even 7 game series. And that was towards the people who said the Pacers would be swept or lose in 5.
WOW... Just looking at that play with Stephenson and Pittman...
Just wow... Just wow... Looking at Stephenson's knee afterwards. Just wow. That's just dirty.
If Bosh didn't go down or if any role player on the Heat made wide open jump shots it EASILY could've been done in 5.
Maybe if Granger wasn't trying to act like a goon, ALL of this "fouling" would not be happening...
Are you seriously about to play a game of IF's???
I'm just saying don't act all high and mighty because you could've (should've really) been deadass wrong. Not to mention you changed your mind and said the Pacers would win in 6 a few days ago.
Absolutely no need for that foul by Pittman. The game is already won.
I don't care how much jawing goes on. The Pacers have played physical all series and they've played physical all season. The Heat have played dirty.
Wade's foul on Collison. Haslem's foul on Hansbrough. And then Pittman's foul on Stephenson.
High and mighty? Please... Because I think it's crazy to use the IF game? What team can't use IF? And how do you know that this series wouldn't have been close? I don't see how there's a way for you to know that.
And the Pacers were up 2-1 playing game four at home... Looking like they had all of the momentum. As a fan of the team, why wouldn't I think they could win this series in 6 games? But if you look back at what I've said consistently.... The Heat should win this series in 6 games.
I think it's funny people are hanging on to my every word. Get off of my n*ts... I'm a realist, but I'm a fan of my sqaud too. Of course I want them to win.
Let me rephrase: You'd have to be in denial to think the Pacers haven't been extremely lucky in this series. Every jump shooter Miami has had gone cold. I'm not talking like contested shots either, like literally wide open shots and they are shooting like under 30%. Not to mention that Chris Bosh guy has missed a few games. Don't give me any ref crap either because we all knew the Heat were going to get calls all postseason.
"I think it's funny people are hanging on to my every word. Get off of my n*ts... I'm a realist, but I'm a fan of my sqaud too. Of course I want them to win."
I'm not on your nuts. You're one of my 5 favorite posters on the site, and I agree with you 90% of the time. Don't come at me because I'm making a logical statement. You're throwing out a bunch of nonsense here. I never said you can't root for your team or that you can't want them to win or even that you can't think they will win. I'm just saying that honestly the Pacers are very lucky to still be playing and I think that should be quite obvious, even to you.
just saw the replays. I wouldnt suspend haslem although that was clearly dirty and he deserved to be kicked out of the game. But pitman has to be suspended, not that that means much to the heat.
Okay, you're right. The Pacers have been extremely lucky. They should've been swept. Stood no chance this series.
Let's see if they can get extremely lucky again next game and push it to a game seven.
Way to completely misinterpret what I said. It's whatever man, this is not worth arguing about.
How have I misinterpreted anything you've wrote? I mean, what you've written is clear as day.
Heat would've easily won in five IF Bosh didn't get injured. IF they hit open jump shots.
You wrote I was acting "high and mighty" because I asked you were you really using IF's due to the fact almost every team can play the IF game right now. Then you went on to try to call me out and said I changed my pick.
You wrote the Pacers have been extremely lucky in this series.
I mean, I don't know what you really want dude...
What have you misinterpreted? How about this?
What I said: "If Bosh didn't go down or if any role player on the Heat made wide open jump shots it EASILY could've been done in 5."
What you think I said: "Heat would've easily won in five IF Bosh didn't get injured. IF they hit open jump shots."
The high and mighty comment had more to do with the basking you've done over the past week or so with Indiana's success (which tbh is understandable). You did change your pick, and the Pacers have been extremely lucky that Miami lost their All Star big among other things. Don't know how you can honestly argue that.
Chilllax out guys. I don't see why this is getting this far and personnel.
have others pick fights for them. First, Juwan Howard, then Haslem, and finally Pittman. Who's next, Pat Riley?
its safe to say that the heat are the dirtiest team in the league and they flop more then any team in the league..
The Pacers played the Heat tough two games during the regular season with Chris Bosh. It took the Heat OT to win one game and the Pacers won by 18 the last game. The Pacers were a team that got a lot better the 2nd half of the season.
I've said all along I thought the Pacers could make this a 6 game series. I think it would've been close even with Chris Bosh. I've said consistently the Pacers do things well that could help them in the playoffs. They defend, rebound, have a deep team, make their free-throws and get contributions from everyone.
I don't feel they were extremely lucky at all. Even with Bosh, the Pacers are still bigger and a better rebounding team.
It's whatever... Regardless, I like what the Pacers have going forward and other than this game, am OK with what they've done this series.
I don't call beating a team by 20 in any game is luck.. but that's just me. The heat are the better team right now but I wouldn't be surprised if it goes 7. lebron had to play his best game of the year stat wise and wade had a great game to in game 4 and it was still a close game. the pacers are very good at home and the heat wont roll over the pacers like they did tonight
Who cares ladies....Thunder vs. Spurs should be for the NBA title anyways lets be honest.
Does anyone else think it's time to put Collison back in with the starting unit? Whenever he's come on off the bench he's lead a run, and while I like George Hill, you need a PG who can exploit the weakness of Miami at the 1, and I just feel Collison is better suited to do that with his scoring instincts.
I hope Vogel tries something new, because the Pacers are struggling mightily these past two games, and the Heat have figured out their MO, adjust your gameplan or lose.
