27 vs 47 3pt attempts.

We need to have quick triggers and attempt 50 3pters a game. That is the only way we gonna win without a healthy Bam.

It's a good/great game normally, when you're missing your 2 of your best 3 players it's not enough... it just isn't. It's the )#($()# FINALS.

We scored 114 points on 51% shooting (with Yimmy accounting for over 50 of those points), Yimmy's offense didn't lose us this game. We lost the game on the defensive glass, but if you want more from our offense we're gonna need DRob/Herro/Nunn to do better than 4-14 from 3


Next game i dont expect the refs to give us that much love. Butler went to the line more than Lebron and AD combined.

Lebron is killing the zone. He'd kill one on one also on switches.

The key issue though is the bigs just destroying us. It cant happen. We dont have the personnel to stop it right now. Kelly is lost out there on anything other than shooting.

I have to say this also. Bam needs to take a shot in his arm, neck or whatever his injury is and get on the court. These opportunities don’t come often. You might never make it back to this point. I was extremely disappointed he did not suit up. Kobe, Jordan , Lebron, Wade, Udonis or any tough as nails player would be out there no matter what their injury was short of a broken leg.

Near the end of the game when this team needed to score every time they got the ball Butler had Caruso on him and HE DID NOT TRY TO SCORE ON HIM, he passed it. That should be unacceptable if you're wanting to win the game.

Did you not read pregame that he and Dragic were lobbying to play and Spo shut them down?

Nah, it's quite possible that the 3 days of rest will be way more useful for him than 1 day plus if he further aggravates it he could be gone from the rest of the series.

He had 6 points and 2 assists (plus another unrecorded assist on an Olynyk FT trip) in the 4th. A couple of times he got inside but the paint was packed. Not to mention he was clearly gassed and 2 days removed from an ugly turned ankle

If our expectation is for Butler to play like a top 3 player in the league vs one of the league's most elite defenses that can key in on him down the stretch because our only other creator on the floor is Kelly Olynyk, that's just not gonna happen

I've had no problem getting on Yimmy for his passiveness during the BOS and MIL series, but I can't knock him for tonight

I have nothing negative to say about Miami today. They fought, they also covered the spread. Yes Duncan cld have been less of a pussy :lol: yes we could have been more aggressive on D, yes Butler cld have attacked more on O but i thought we stayed composed for the most part & finished strong. Not much more to ask for from a depleted squad w/out their top 2 leading scorers.

What was frustrating though was when ever we tried to get it close to single digits La seemed to always answer w/ a 3. Really frustrating. Rondo shooting like Ray Allen. I'm sure we'll look at video further @ address that next game.

I believe Dragic & Bam will suit up gm3. It's our must win.
Championship teams experience adversities. We in that process. Started gm1. Remember this time. Remember this pain. Our time is coming...

yikes. I vaguely remember that now.

Okaro White? Justin Hamilton? Jarnell Strokes? Anyone but Luke Babbitt?

AD is playing way too comfortably outchea. Definitely need to put more bodies on him. Nothing dirty, just be more physical. That's the only way you can bother his game and I thought that was well known??? Not this hands free social distancing approach smh

That's fine, I can, he can be more assertive but he wasn't, especially with Caruso defending him.

I hope we're looking at a bruiser/agitator this offseason. Ad is a finesse player that needs to earn every point. He's cruisin'. We need to put his ass on the floor.

Bring back Dexter Pittman. He tried to layout lance that playoff game against the Pacers. I'm pretty sure it was Lance, cuz he was the one guy who was talking s##t the whole game

No, did not see that. If that’s the case thats even worse for me to hear. I would like to see Spo tell Wade,Kobe,Jimmy,Bron,Jordan your sitting out this finals game. They would rip Spo a new one and be on the court. SMH
