Absolutely amazing game. LeBron and Wade on the same team....wow, such an amazing luxury. Seems like they were just taking turns and then LeBron decided nope I'm not passing anymore and drilled shot after shot to seal it. I can't imagine what the playoffs will be like.

Amazing efficiency for us too, against a goo defensive team. I'm sad to say I was actually hoping for them to hit some shots at the end there so we could get to 100 points between the big 3 :lol:

Great win. I don't complain about the refs, but there was some homecooking going on. It was nice to see them overcome the odds in a tough environment.

Rio has had two bad games now, and Carlos has consequently stepped-up his defensive play. Chalmers better get on it.

Bosh at center was interesting. He lacks the strength to cope with anyone stronger than Aldridge. He needed some help tonight, but it was also great for spacing. That's why Bron was getting to the rim to easy in the closing minutes. Spo needs to experiment with that.

Arroyo did fine today, but I couldn't help think how useless he was in OT, as he didn't bring the ball up at all. Wade and Bron were bringing it up and initiating the offense. Was Arroyo in there to space the floor? I know he's shooting a good percentage, but I would much rather have Miller in there for rebounding. Plus, Carlos missed his look.

Miller needs to take Jones' minutes. We should experiment with small lineups again, because tonight Bosh at center was the only real solution. Z and Joel were useless out there. PEACE.

No doubt about this. I've been waiting too! There have been so many games in the past where he has just completely taken over. He's done it a little bit this season, but tonight it got taken to another level.

The game game against Washington almost gave me a heart attack and was the closest game of the year, but this has probably been the most exciting so far. It was just great basketball down the stretch!

Seemed like Bosh was still playing PF since Bron was the one guarding Camby

I felt like Bosh played Aldrige tough. Sure Aldrige scored, as great offensive players do...but Bosh was contesting shots much better than Joel.

Joel was getting schooled by LMA's footwork.

Don't think I've ever seen anything like that. I'd like to take back his nickname "Warden" and suggest we find a new one.

:o

I'm laughing right now at the amount of people complaining about the missed call (where 5 people touched the ball) on LeBron's double dribble. Really? After all the calls Portland was getting?

That 1 TO was a completely crock .. that was a perfect pick which the refs decided to call a foul on. Too bad .. other wise it could have been an even better line :lol:

Look guys, I know people say stupid things on both sides (including myself) but don't read too much into it, we all realize that we ran into a sleeping giant and were lucky to even be in this game for most of the way. I'm proud of what my Blazers did but it's just hard to win when you can't stop a team's top 3 players. Wade, James, and Bosh all played great games, period. Good game guys, but be prepared for our return. ;)

Im still confounded as to why spo doesnt give Miller and Damp minutes. Theres games where james jones shot is useless and we can really use millers playmaking and defense and damp, well its an anomaly but damp has been our most effective C yet he continues to be benched in favor of Howard, Z and the former Warden joel anthony.
Anyways, this game was great, overall performance in the 4th and OT id rate it as a CLUTCH/10 and Bron trolling the crowd at the end was priceless. Requesting someone make a gif of his buttslap.

I think Bosh on the middle only work because the bigs where completely useless which won't happened again. IMHO it's a one game thing, I mean how many times will the entire bench make only 11 points and the big rotation gets 1 rebound? I think it won't happen again...

Wade: 15/22 = 68%
James: 17/26 = 65%
Bosh: 9/17 = 52%

Now THAT is efficiency.

Seriously. Wade was hacked on the drive the last time he touched the ball and no call was what even left them with hope.

I'm pretty sure the Blazers only had like 10 fouls total up till around the end of the 4th.

Good game, friend. It's a shame you've fallen victim to bad injury luck with some of your players. Hopefully that'll sort its way out in the future. Till next time.

Return to Miami Heat
