Good job, Lance.
Darn DWest wide open on Lance's drive.
At some point we gotta draw something different to close a quarter than a Lance drive to the basket. Oh well.
So at the Half I have to say that PG has been flaming pile of **** on defense. I mean he lets the Smaller 6-3 Wade shoot over him in ISO. He gets beat off the dribble by Black Jesus. He loses wade on the Alley Oop, and he gives up the ball to Lebron and didn't bother chase him down and try for a block.
On offense, he had a late surge, but in generally get can't handle the double team and shame him for not running Lebron around some screens to get the ball going towards the hoop. If you get double teamed on the catch, you need to get yourself some separation and utilize those screens and Curl under the basket and pop out so you can the ball and make a quick move before the Heat can send their double team.
You can't get champagne from a garden hose.
You guys think Lance plays hard? Lol. Loved that halftime interview.
All in all, this was a very good first half. The bench provided a spark and the starters are playing steady basketball. Roy was to be a bit careful about his fouls but other than that we're doing great. Gotta keep this up for one more half.
PG needs to call up Reggie and ask him how to move around screens.
Did charmers not take a shot a lances head? And then hasslem taunted..
I think he's trying to stay out of foul trouble. He knows how the refs are for Miami, especially in Miami. He can't get all up in LJ or Wade's grill without a foul being called. He's being conservative and smart. But in the fourth quarter, if he's still got 3 fouls, I think he'll tighten it up. You also know you can't stay in front of Lebron when he charges. They'll call you for the blocking foul. If you jump when Wade shoots he'll lean into you to draw one. I think PG has caught onto Miami's tricks, so he's trying to avoid getting cheap fouls.
What can you say guys about the ESPN announcers tonight? Are they still annoying?
Thought I'd share this gem from the ESPN conversation link:
The Pacers just plain get every call. They get away with bad fouls on defense and the Heat can't guard them because any contact (and sometimes none at all) means they blow the whistle against the Heat. Just like the ECF last year...Pacers are rigged. 3 quick fouls on Lebron. They SHOULD NOT HAVE CALLED A SINGLE ONE. F#ck the pacers.
Ian's played great. Hi haters.
Ash from Army of Darkness: Good...Bad...I'm the guy with the gun.
If there was any question whether or not the heat treat this as more than just another Lebron James playing tonight should just put that whole debate to rest
George has got to start trying on D if he isn't going to do anything on the offensive end.
Battier keeps putting his shoulder into guys.
