What phantom calls was Dirk getting? Anyways, it's not the refs fault and the officiating, Dallas was up 13 with 8 or so minutes left. The game should have been over. Mavs fault for losing it
I agree that Dallas gave this game away... no doubt. They should be up 3-0 right now. However, Miami does deserve credit for clawing their way back and not giving up.
Dirk gets phantom calls all the time (especially in Dallas). He flops around like a fish on defense (like most Euro players) and if anyone breathes on him on the offensive end, he goes to the line. It isn't his fault... he gets the star treatment... just like Wade.
So everyone is suppose to stay quiet after witnessing what Wade just did? Let's not forget this is an NBA Finals game. Everyone already stayed quiet after his legendary playoff series against the Pistons.
It is in the bag. The Mavs have won with such ease, while the Heat should've had to go to OT to win it.
Yeah I'd have to agree Y2. Miami won by 2 points, when Dallas had missed like their last 8 shots or something. IMO Miami needed to beat Dallas by 10+ in order to take their momentum away and they didnt do that. Dallas probably feels like they "lost" by their bad play instead of Miami "beat" us. I'm glad they won however to make the playoffs a little more interesting. They (Heat) should all be kissing Wade's feet right now because if not for him they would be down 0-3.
It's really not that simple, but I still like Dallas's chances obviously. Bad execution down the stretch as well as no defense at all killed them. Wade played more in control today with only 1 to and obviously, Shaq was more Shaq than Shakira tonight. 2-1, come back next game
