Heat committed 20 turnovers too. Just compounded the problem with their bad defense.

LeBald got shted on by Leonard.

Spo needs to switch up LeBald with Beasley everytime he starts playing hide and seek in the corner. Beasley doesn't care about FG% and he's a better player in the 4th. LeBald really might cost Bosh a FMVP just like Wade in 2011.

In case you put any stock into point margins, the Spurs are +32 through 3 games.

Truer words have never been spoken. the pic and roll with Parker which is the spurs' bread and butter during the regular season doesnt work against an excellect pik and roll defending team like the heat. they are determined that parker is not going to beat them in the paint. unfortunately parkers passing is not as good as manus who when they double him, manu makes them pay see splitter scoring or getting fouled over and over. when parker is doubled, he just passes off to another player. patkers dribbling stops the excellent ball movement of the spurs.

imo, this is why pop was praising tp for his leadership in game 3 - for accepting that hes not going to score much or eventually win fmvp. i feel that last year parker was gunning for fmvp in game 6 and reverted to selfish ball hogging play and contributing to the loss. we'll see if as the games go on, he resists that desire. i suspect he will -the loss last year was a bitter pill to swallow and they must all secure the win and let fmvp fall where it will. must be hard for him after leading the spurs offensively for the past few years but thats how it goes when an opponent decides what theyre willing to give up and what theyre willing to live with.

The scariest thing is the fact these Spurs aren't going cold. Their ball movement is so amazing that they ALWAYS get wide open shots every game, make or miss the opportunities are always there. So one night they may not get hot from 3 but they will punish you in the paint, next game they can't score inside but rain 3s. They have so many options.

Miami's aggressive defense also plays right into their hands, they double so often that they always leave someone open. And with Diaw, Manu, Duncan on the floor you can't leave people open since they are all elite playmakers.

For Miami to beat them 3 more times they have to start respecting these "scrubs". Every role player on the Spurs has the confidence and Pop's trust to shoot, they will keep moving the ball and hitting open shots. Heat have to rotate faster and cover the 3 point line, stop being so lazy on D. Play hard every quarter, wear them down so they can't get into a rhythm offensively.
