    Wow. That was an absolutely awesome game.

    Huge balls by The Spurs.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Great game. Great finish. Spurs missed a lot of open 3s but still won the game.

    Im curious to see if Wade can continue his great play today throughout the series.

    Lebron had the quietest triple double I can remember.

    A lot of stats, barely any game impacting plays the entire game offensively or defensively and he didn't do anything in crunch time other than turn the ball over.

    Lebron's a great talent, but he lacks the heart of a killer. If I were his coach I'd fine him everytime he settled for a jump shot instead of taking the ball to the basket in the fourth quarter.

    Four turnovers. For a team. For the entire game.

    Their ball movement is tops in the league. They got shooters all over the place and with the pick and roll Parker is a master orchestrator

    They won this game with their defense...holding Miami to just 36 second half points and holding Lebron and Wade to 6 points in the 4th.

    There is no doubt that Miami has the physical talent to win this series. However, I've mentioned before that I get the sense they turn it off sometimes. Series go longer than they should with them. Compare that to the old Bulls or Duncan's Spurs, where, if healthy, they will end a series in five that is supposed to end in five.

    Miami is going to have to turn it on and keep it on this series. Or else.............

    I'm starting to believe the most glaring mis-match of this series might be Popovich over that yokel from Miami....

    I underestimated The Heat. They played good for most of game. I think they'll rebound in game 2, but still fall in 5.

    Re: NBA playoffs

    I figured the Spurs would win game 1. I think they were a little rusty though. I only got to see part way into the second but it seemed like a lot of good looks ending up misses. Heat were missing to, but it seemed like they werent getting the open looks besides 3s that the spurs were, mostly due to their passing.

    James might have been quiet on his way to 18/18/10 but honestly he was the only one that could grab a board for the Heat which is why he almost quadrupled the next guy. Seeing as he gets a lot of fast break/transition points, if hes rebounding its a lot less likely. He does however need to try to score more, because hes the guy that should consistently get his shot.

    13/5 for Bosh. 2/5 for Haslem. 7/3 for Anderson. 22/13 Total.
    20/14 for Duncan.
    Theyre going to need to find an answer for that.

    Can't ask for a better game, this will be a hard fought series. Glad game 2 starts earlier.
