That's an offensive display for the record books. I always judge a winner of a game by how much easier they seem to score. The word seem is irrelevant here.
Van Gundy made a great point, sometimes when its this easy offensively, you start to relax defensively. SA needs to keep the pressure on. They only really need to score 2 for every 3 miami scores in the 2nd to win.
That display was also Miami's failure... hate to hate on them but they don't look hungry for championships anymore.
Will be hard, but not impossible. Anyone wanna guess how much SA won last year's game 3 by?
Btw MIA's crowd was actually pretty good tonight, and was very good the last round or two. Every team's crowd has ppl who leave when they're down at the end of the game, but most of those teams don't come back to win.
LBJ wasn't aggressive enough, turned ball over like crazy, Chris Bosh got 12 (!!) total touches, Chalmers is actively dousing his next contract with kerosene, whole team played poor defense.
But who cares! SA was freaking out of their minds!! DANNY GREEN was hitting 2-pointers! They showed why they fully deserved to be the favorites coming in.
Every team's crowd has ppl who leave when they're down at the end of the game, but most of those teams don't come back to win. and then try to get back in later when they realize they are fair-weather fanboys.
