No team in the NBA can blow 18 point leads like the Heat. BUT, they hung on & took the all important 3-0 lead.
On to game 4.

Sheeeeit!, I'll take it. Plenty of playoff games where we've been on the other end of that.

That's crazy. I was reading that everyone had 5 fouls. I'm sure they played very hard desperate defense to stay alive.

Nothing to see here. Just playoff basketball

Gutsy win. I don't care how we got the victory; the Pacers had their backs against the wall so i was expecting them to come roaring back in the 2nd half. We showed poise especially in the last 3 min. Brogdan has the best matchup out of anybody this series and even then Dragic played him extremely well defensively when it mattered.

I'm proud of this team. This is the Playoffs, get the W and move on to the next.

Really though, what does Spo say or do during halftime. Like a puppet show or some chit? It has to be really bizarre stuff to bring down our energy every single third quarter of every game he's ever coached.

Remember 73 win GSW and how they used to always mess around in 1st half and just dominate 3Q and annihilate the opponent?

We're doing the opposite OP and see how we become. We built different OP

I don't remember if it is every game , I'll take your word for it ...but what I do know spo does that 80% of the time... I guess he is an a-hole during halftime and doesn't give props where he has too

That was a close one and turd quarter almost got us.

Brogdon was feasting whenever Herro was on him and hopefully that was a learning experience for a rookie.

Heat had 4 players scoring over 20 points! When was the last time that happened?

Yeah, not every game, but too often. Word is he stands in front of the team the entire half time, doing the "don't let go of the rope" gesture with a determined stare focused at no one.

I don't care for winning anyway you can, but I will give you... in other sports that also approach things this way , they "win"[especially in a playoff scenario with many games facing the same team]
it has a higher rate of occurrence as human evolution develops, so there must be something to it

Learn from this.

Was Goran the best player of the series?
