A few observations about the game:
1. We hardly ever looked for Roy in the post, yet we force fed West the ball.
2. I hope Paul worked on finishing at the rime during the summer. In spite of his loose ball handling, he was getting to the rack, just couldn't get off/finish a good shot.
3. After watching that first quarter and really the first half; its easy to forget how close we were to blowing the heat out early on in game 4. If 2 or 3 of those wide open 3's go down, then game 4 looks a lot like game 3....at least in the first half.
4. Vogel KILLED momentum in both half's by having the entire bench in while Lebron and Wade had layup drills.
Yeah, the bench really lost the series for the Pacers.
There was a simple simple play that the Heat put in, in that game where they screen the screener, it lead to 2 Chalmers 3s and a lay up by Lebron. Pacers had no answer. Ace is right they were about 4 or 5 missed open shot from being up 20 plus on Miami in the first half. Up 2 games to 1 and up 20 plus points really would have put pressure on Miami, too.
In retrospect, this team hasn't played their best basketball and they hung with Miami. Makes me very hopeful.
I refuse to watch our bench over those last 3 games ever again.
Hey now. It's not the benches fault that the starters didn't give them a 20pt cushion.
This was the most heartbreaking loss of the series, IMO. We had every opportunity to bust that thing wide open and the shots just didn't go down. I can't bring myself to rewatch it yet.
Did we win the game?

They should have shown Game 3. That was fun.
