The overall "team" play of the Heat is laughable. No one besides Lebron tries to create plays. There is no creativity on offense and ball movement is limited. The worst thing about last night's loss for Miami is their lack of enthusiasm... It's like they didn't care at all. No hustle and a lack of communication on both sides of the ball.

Default Re: 2014 NBA PLAYOFFS!!!!!

about the rest factor, im sure its helped the spurs get to this point, but its not an excuse for miami. they suddenly got tired in game 3 and game 4? sorry i dont buy it. as for lebron he had one great quarter, just like the previous game. obviously im not putting it all on his shoulders, but you cant absolve him from blame either. these are two evenly matched teams, the spurs just have the heat on their heels and they have no answer. hows that for a generic explanation? both teams have gone with a core 8 man rotation this series, the heat's big 3 is younger than the spurs big 3, but the spurs other 5 are younger.

the changes the spurs have made since last year have made the difference. we've seen danny green become more consistent and not just a spot up shooter. kawhi leonard continuing to improve. patty mills gives them the backup point guard they lacked last year. boris diaw becoming a key member of the rotation and starter in this series. getting rid of that no defense playing bum gary neal helped.

miami lost mike miller from last year. shane battier and mario chalmers have both disappeared. those are 3 guys who consistently hit the 3 and made big shots in last year's finals. i think ray allen has been steady on offense, but the heat role players havent been as good as last year and their big guns havent been good enough to overcome it.

I agree the Heat role players have just been disappointing except for Ray Allen and birdman to a degree. Their defense has no answer for the spurs ball movement especially the passing of their big men. This series is over!

And speaking of role players D Wade has become just that....a role player.

The Heat's best move in the offseason would be for Wade to opt out and go elsewhere or take significantly less $ with the Heat because he just isn't the same player and he can't shoot 3s. He's going to continue to rest in the regular season sitting 20-30 games to keep him "fresh" for the playoffs. If they Heat want to keep this championship window open with LeBron that's what needs to happen to get another star here like Melo or whoever.

The play of Ginobilli and Mills are the big differences from last year's series. Last year Manu was terrible.

The Spurs are playing great as a team. Very good ball movement leads to open shots.

The spurs are averaging 120 points per 100 possessions over the past two games.

That mark would be the greatest in history for a season.

toward the end of last year's finals the spurs didnt really have anyone who could get to the hoop and threaten the heat other than leonard. parker looks a lot better than last year too. all their perimeter guys and diaw are getting into the paint and creating havoc. miami's defense is worse than last year's, but i think its more the spurs offense than it is the heat's defense. then you have their top 3 bigs all passing beautifully.

last year the spurs offense got stagnant at times and it was easy for the heat to take out the 3 point shooters the last two games of the 2013 finals. this year even if its not a wide open shot if you dont force them to put it on the floor theyre burying the 3 against that halfway decent closeout or theyre going right around that defender. last year it was easy to neutralize a green or neal once you made it a point of emphasis. theres no quick fix like that this year.

With some other teams, if starters tire and reserves need to somehow step up, they can't do it because they weren't asked to during the season. Right now I see a San Antonio team that seems like it has 8-9 starters to take the floor, with all of them knowing how to contribute like starters and leaders...
Agree, it just builds a team and allows everyone to hold everyone accountable as well as making Pop have interchangeable players at this point in the year.

The only way I could have been happier with this series is if the Heat had been swept. Its going to be funny watching LeBron quit tonight, then quit the team, and then run to someone else's team.

Heat will most likely lose this series but it won't be because of LeBron James. He doesn't have quit in him and they're in it because of him. Spurs just have a better overall team, far more depth and a much better coach.

The fact that Tim Duncan has appeared in more playoff games than 17 NBA franchises really blows my mind.

Lebron is a great player and a hall of famer, but I just don't understand people trying to compare him to MJ. It is beyond baffling to me how a person can watch him play in the finals and think he is even remotely close to being the player Jordan was.

I don't think people are saying he is the GOAT now. A lot of people realize he is still only 29 years old and has 6-10 more great years left. Know one knows what will happen in the future. He is easily the best player currently playing.

He is the best player right now, but he isn't Michael Jordan and never will be in my opinion. It doesn't even appear to be close between the two honestly. Lebron doesn't have the desire to win that Jordan had, he doesn't want the ball the way Jordan did, and he disappears for large parts of just about every game. I read an article earlier where he stated that he would be okay win or lose and that is something that would never hear come out of Jordan's mouth.

By the way, people are saying he is the greatest of all time. Just listen to 560 locally and you hear callers say it all the time.

Well most of what you hear is he is the greatest on the planet. Which is referring to currently. The people who are saying GOAT are probably too young to remember MJ or not very smart.
