JET was insane last night. Even though Dirk's been getting a lot of bad press regarding his shooting percentage, his line really isn't bad at all.

We'll see who brings it tonight. Did you watch Shaq's weird-ass comments to the media when he said he was an alien from another planet? I mean, I know it was schtick, but he went on and on for a good 3 or 4 minutes.

Hey there.. I gotta say LETS GO HEAT!!! Born and raised in Miami and not thinking of leaving..

Both teams deserve to win this series but I do have to stick to my home town team.

Good luck to both teams!! ;)

GO HEAT!!!

Don't get me wrong - I'm not a Miami hater. I just want to see some good basketball. Dwyane scares the hell out of me. How do you guard that guy?

2 FOUR POINT PLAYS?? What's up with Miami's D tonight?
Dean, I got to say Miami better start playing cause it seems like they just havn`t shown up yet. The Mavs have been running their plays very well and have capitalized on every mistake Miami has had. The Mavs have demonstrated what champions bring to the finals.

Lead down to 12 - maybe they've decided to show up after all. Wade's obviously not feeling it - his touch isn't there. Plus, for some reason, no one can buy a basket. To tell you the truth, even as a Mavs fan, I don't enjoy a blowout. I want both teams at full strength going back to Miami.

i think we'll know by the end of the first quarter of game three if the heat are here to play or not, if not, theres no doubt it will be a 4-0 sweep.

I guess we got nothing to do but wait and see. Even though I am a Heat fan I do have to admit that the Mavs at full strength are pretty damn hard to play against. They make the opponent chase them down the court and every play is ran hard and fast which at times frustrates their opponents (in this case the Heat).

The Mavs are tough to beat because the bench is so deep and varied. Avery can play big, small, fast, etc. Bench scoring is the only reason we're even playing the Heat right now.

Well mog3618, it looks like Wade finally broke out and found his game. While most people around here are talking about how Shaq made his free throws while Dirk, who shoots like 91% at the line, missed his, it really comes down to the Mavs just pissing away their lead with shoddy offense. Plus, if I hear one more comment about how stupid it was (though it was...) not to just let Payton launch his shot, I'm going to kill myself.

Wade drank some rocket sauce and gave a clinic, that's how. I could see it in the first quarter, though - how slow did the Mavs look in comparison to Games 1 + 2? The idea is to tire out Miami so they have nothing left in the tank by the fourth and capitalize on bad shots and turnovers. Dampier did his job. Nobody else did. Plus, I love how Dallas reverted to a Nelson-esque jump-shooting team, totally going against the attack-the-rim philosophy that Avery's been trying to drill into their heads. Pathetic.

RIP, Mavs. :( So I guess the new question is whether Dirk is SuperStar status or not. Is it a prerequisite that the player kick ass in the Playoffs, or in the Finals, specifically, because he did a pretty great job up until Miami.
