Lebron needs to be way more agressive and watching Chris Bosh shoot all those damn threes makes me want to shout at the TV can only imagine how Heat fans feel...

Yeah agreed. In the Heat's case LeBron will still carry them so far though. Even if Bosh and Wade don't show up for the rest of the series... LeBron is that good, and has such an impact that they would still win games in this series though.

But he does need the suppoting cast to show up if they want to win consistantly enough to take the series.

But one superstar player can make a huge difference in the NBA... unlike any other team sport I can think of.

Yeah... I couldn't understand all those 3s from Bosh.

He's a decent shooter... but he's not so good that he should be looking for that shot as often as he was. He's a PF/C for gods sake... They need him using his size to crash the boards (something he can't do if he's way out there), and then be steping back for the mid range jumper. The mid range is his jump shot... anything from downtown should be a rarity in odd situations... no more than 1 a game as bonus. It certainly shouldn't be a shot that he is looking for several times a game.

The Spurs will be thrilled if he sits out there taking 4 or 5 triples per game. The chances are he's only going to hit 1 of them, and it's one less big man in the paint for the offensive rebound.

I'm not a Heat fan BTW!

Credit to the Spurs for sticking with Miami all the way and taking advantage but as the game wore on I was fully expecting a narrow Miami victory and it felt like they blew it!
Yeah fair play to the Spurs. There were periods where it felt like the Heat were dominating... but the Spurs quietly kept them within striking distance. They kept them close and then pounced in the 4th quarter off a couple of Heat mistakes.

They weathered the storm and kept quietly kept them close though 3... and then with great defense and zero turnovers in the 4th... thats how you win close basketball games.

Having not been in the UK for the last 4/5 of them, can anyone tell me if it's easy to watch the NBA Draft on UK TV/internet?

I've already taken the Friday off work so it's a must see for me!

I honestly thought before this series started that the Spurs wouldn't get blown away like the Pacers did in games five and seven. But after game two when the Heat powered past the Spurs I think that the Heat will win game three.

Heat 98 - 92 Spurs

I still hope the Spurs win the title, but I fancy the Heat in game two.

hmmm ... pretty immense by the spurs here. i thought i was blown away by the heat in the 2nd game, but this spurs blow-out tops it. parker and duncan sitting out best part of half hour each so far (and no doubt will the rest of the game with 3.30 in the 4th left).

green and neal beasting

74-107 spurs thus far

Lebron James' -32 point differential was the worst of ANY GAME he has played in his entire career (899 games)
