    I have to speak up every once in awhile...it's still a 10-1 ratio of anti Heat vs my posts By douchey are you guys talking about the celebration after making big plays? Name me a team/player who doesn't do that? Except maybe Derrick Rose

    FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] i feel like derrick rose constantly cannot pull of those clutch shots. what the fuck up is with these turnovers. this is ridiculous GG
    Derrick has been clutch all season. He killed the Heat all season (iirc every game was close and Rose always pulled it out at the end). It was just a great adjustment putting Lebron on him (and Lebron hustling more than I can remember seeing him) and in the OT he was also just gassed

    Your standards might be a bit high, there...that was the only FT he missed all game (6/7). I hear what you're saying about the timing, but of the reasons the Bulls lost that game, Rose's FT shooting wasn't one of them

    he's been clutch all season, but not in the playoffs.

    Anyone else really impressed by the overall level of play in the Eastern series? Dirk has been spectacular in the West, but the games themselves haven't been nearly as compelling as the last couple Heat/Bulls games. The defensive intensity especially is very impressive, from both teams.

    yes

    especially noah. really impressed by his defense all night.

    heats have really stepped up their defense and bulls making good plays all the time

    Having two defensive teams can get really boring, but these two have enough offensive spark to keep it exciting. You never know when there's going to be a steal leading to a hellacious dunk, etc.

    Noah running the break was fabulous, especially in light of how limited he is overall as an offensive player. Not many centers can do that, fun stuff.

    I loved when the announcers were discussing if Lebron could guard all five players the Bulls had on the floor right then. I think they concluded that he could [​IMG] That kind of defensive insanity is really what gives the Heat a chance to be special, these plays where they double Rose with Lebron and Bosh, or switch from Lebron to D-Wade on Rose...how do you deal with that kind of defensive flexibility?

    completely agree

    lebron practically shut out d-rose in the last few minutes when the heats switched it up and d-rose wasnt able to use that switch to the bulls advantage
