Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Memphis is definitley not ready for prime time. Here is another illustration of the reason game 1 is the least important in a 7 game series. By winning, the Spurs have placed a stranglehold on the Grizz. Had Memphis won, they would be sitting pretty heading back home with HCA.

However, regardless of the outcome of game 3, I think it will be the Spurs who are given the opportunity get ground up by the Heat. Actually though, I expect the Spurs to give the Heat a decent series. I don't mind seeing the Spurs lose (even if it is to the Heat) -- it keeps the Lakers with the most championships in the millenium.

Holy smokes.... if game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals is any indication......
First Paul George sinks a 30+ footer to tie it at the end of regulation. Then LeBron does this:




ETA: Here is George's game-tieing shot at the end of regularion

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

I didn't see any of that game. Man, Pacers score then play matador D and give up a game deciding lay up -- in overtime. LeBron just turned and the lane was wide open. That's terrible. In the Conference Finals as well as the NBA Finals, teams who let games that they have a good chance of winning slip away ususally don't end up winning the series. Did Hibbert foul out?

Heat, OTOH, are inexperienced at repeating. Winning the NBA championship is the hardest championship of the major sports to win, IMO. It is topped in difficulty only by repeating as NBA champs. Heat had better keep their heads down and work their asses off until they get that 16th win in the Finals.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Why else do you think LeBron looked so po'ed after that winning shot, when the rest of the team wanted to celebrate?

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

I was surprised that the Pacers took game 2... shows a lot of character, and Vogel's humbly owning up to a mistake was refreshing. But like some Indiana players said, it feels like deja vu and we have to remain focused.

Another game like that and I'll believe the Pacers as a team are for real, win or lose.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

If anyone had told me a few weeks ago that one of the conference finals' series would tied 1-1 and one team up 3-0 in the other, I would not have picked the west to have the team that is 3-0. The east finals was supposed to be a cakewalk for the Heat and the west, a dogfight. What a surprise.

I'm not sure of what the east finals is saying about the Heat or the Pacers. Heat could be suffering from a case of repeat-itis or the Pacers just might be a team that is jelling at just the right time.

In any case, congrats to the Spurs for getting back to the Finals where they have never lost. Spurs - Heat would be good for the league -- Spurs - Pacers, not so much. I still expect the Heat to repeat, just not as positive as I once was.

Isn't it always the same old story? Put Lebron on the blocks and team production goes way up. Not sure Indiana has the depth or X-factor to take the Heat 7.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

It is going to be a very interesting Finals. The Spurs have consideralby more Finals experience among their core than the Heat's core and also are going to have the coaching advantage. The Heat though, on paper, are the better team.

What I want to see is if LeBron starts setting up on the low block and hurting them, will the Spurs put Duncan on him? Tim may be old but he is still a superior low post defender. Counting on LeBron to beat Duncan one on one off the block would also play right into the Spurs' hands, IMO. But LeBron on the block has been very productive for the HEat this season and with his court vision, LBJ might still beat you from there even if he isn't scoring in the low post.

Going to be very interesting.

BTW, yes I am envisioning the Heat in the Finals. I think the Pacers blew it leaving their game in Miami and coughing up game 3.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Heh, heh, seems like if you shoot 60 something percent as a team from the field for a game, the basketball gods make you pay and last night the Heat paid. But does anyone really see them winning another one in Miami? I sure don't, but I can easily see the Heat winning another one in Indiana. Series may still only go 6.

Pacers have a go to guy in the making with Paul George, but he just isn't quie where they need him to be right now.

Spurs get to rest. Good for them. I really think they have a shot at a very rare upset in the Finals (assuming it's Miami).
