    Heat looked unstoppable while Dallas was turning the ball over every ten seconds. As soon as that stops, Heat offense implodes and Dallas catches fire. Crazy series of runs in the 4th, from both teams.

    That offensive set Dallas was running the last ~5 minutes was interesting, didn't look like Miami knew how to deal with it.

    What a comeback. This could be significant, as it was in the Portland and OKC series.

    Wolves sign Rubio; the draft just got a bit more interesting.

    Mike Tirico was calling it the greatest comeback in playoff history on ESPN Radio.

    Wow. The look on dirk's face is priceless. I don't think he even realizes where he is.

    I'm up in the middle of the atlantic on a fucking sailboat for the last two weeks... but I actually had to listen to this game on the radio...

    I imagine he might look like this:

    or maybe he has that distant look going? i remember dirk having this weird glassy eyed look when he's doing his crunch time thing or in a zone.

    it was a great, great comeback win, but tirico is an idiot. i hate how recency makes everyone forget the past. did anyone even mention how pippen recently said lebron is a better player than michael jordan? lmfao

    The question of course is...It's the Finals, why was the giant asleep??? Also, were you saying the same after game 1?

    LOL. You're exactly right. If Dallas wanted to have a chance of winning this series, they never should have made the mistake of winning a game . . . [​IMG]

    i'm not sure if this was an epic comeback or an epic collapse. probably both.

    totally disappointed.

    I've never seen a team make these epic comebacks so calmly and collected. (actually i only listened to this last comeback)

    down 15 against the lakers/down 15 against OKC, down 15 against MIA... "meh.. ok yup we'll just go about our business"

    in the NBA usually a big comeback is this huge furious run with a bunch of dunks/layups and threes by one or two guys on fire.

    But dallas kinda just goes about their business and runs their offense and clamps down juuust a liiitttle more on defense and proceeds to comeback in a nonchalant manner.

    Just watched the highlights since I got in, looked like a collapse on defense.
