Not arguing to the contrary, just saying the timing is ironic. We've seen Miami get open looks before, and not be this hot from 3. Tonight's their night, clearly.....

Game 4's first quarter is what I meant by absorbing their best shot... not the whole game.

I personally feel like the Heat dominated the entrie series. They lead all but a few quarters. That's domination. I know people will say, but the games were close. I don't subscribe to close games making a difference is the outcome is always the same. Winning 75% of the time regardless of the amount is domination.

I had the Heat from the gate... I didnt think they were gonna dominate like this though. It makes it more impressive in my eyes.

The difference is defensive intensity of the Heat.

The Heat poke more balls away and steal more passes.

The Heat are a DEFENSIVE team. The Thunder are an OFFENSIVE team.

Weren't you poking fun at anyone, myself included and in particular, who dared say the Heat would win a championship?

I clearly said losing 4 straight... any "real" basketball fan will tell you that's a sweep. Not a 4-0 sweep. but its still a sweep of 4 straight games.

So to that...

Isn't this the best display of 3-point shooting ever by a team in the NBA Finals?

Commonly referred to as a 'gentleman's sweep'.....
