Short post but Im not feeling the finals right now. The game Miami had to win (game 4) Lebron/Wade were taking more charge early on then suddenly last night they relapsed. They went back to not playing like they want it all. Why did they go away from the game plan? Do you think its genuine or they just really suck?

P.S. I do want the Spurs to win but im just making an observation.

Well, Wade and James combined to take 44 shots in Game 5. But I don't think it was a lack of aggressiveness on their parts. James had 16 points in the first half.

They combined to take 50 in Game 4. The shots just were not falling last night. Wade and James did go to the basket a lot last night, missed a couple of bunnies.

The Heat defense, more than the offensive performances of Wade and James and Bosh (who had 16 points), failed them. They just could not defend the 3-point shot or stop the penetration of Parker or Ginobili.

The Spurs have been shooting lights out. There's nothing much you can do about that. Danny Green just broke the record for most 3's in a playoff season (or was it a finals?)

When the basket looks like a trash can for the opposing team, all you can do is try to keep up.

The Spurs were hitting everything, including tough off-balance shots and highly contested shots. Miami's defense could have been better but a lot of it was just better offense.

The Heat players were aggressive they just couldn't buy a shot for a stretch late 3rd quarter/early 4th quarter where they were outscored at least 19-1. That was pretty much the difference in the game. Ray Allen played really well in the 4th and got them back into it but it was too late.
