Can someone explain to me why Mike Miller is getting all of the minutes over Haslem and Birdman? Not that I'm complaining...
Floor spacing = to open up driving lanes for Wade and LeBron

He has 0 points on 1 shot...

It is the threat of his shot. Defenders have to stay up on him.

He has only managed to take one shot for a reason. His defender is all over him. 20+ feet from the basket. Opening up the floor for Wade and LeBron.

Alright, I guess that makes sense. Still, I think it's a mistake not giving Birdman minutes. He's been great these playoffs. Unless he's injured I see no reason that he shouldn't be on the court vs. Splitter.

I would go with C.Andersen over U.Haslem as backup center. 

And drop Haslem from the rotation altogether. Give Andersen the non-Bosh minutes.

It appears they like it that way. I hope it bites them.

Great win. Honestly though game 6 is a must win for the Spurs. No one wants a game 7 in Miami... except Miami.

I disagree. Game 6 is by definition a must win for the Heat. The Spurs have two shots at wining the series now, and all the pressure is on Miami. The Spurs are too well coached and smart as a team to not come out for the jugular in game 6 though.

Credit to Pop, he made some excellent adjustments tonight.

The fact that Popovich still had faith in ginobili is amazing. Ginobili had his season best game today. just crazy.

Tha streets of San Antonio are live tonight. I'm glad I chose to come out here for their home games. Great win for San Antone. I still have them in 6 but I'll take them in 7 if they lose next game (which I hope they don't).

Go Spurs Go.

Finally out of my teens in TP's. Thanks to whoever my 20th TP was from. C's were up 3-2 but tha Heat are up against a different beast this time around. Tha Spurs have a more complete team and as much as I love Doc, they have a better coach.

I have more belief in Pop to not let his team lose this series than I do LeBron to carry tha Heat for two straight games.

i have read the NBA playoffs like a book lol, It is simple to say there is absolutely positively no shot The spurs win this series, it was all for revenue purposes for the spurs to win this game 5, Lebron and wade are going to devour the paint, while guys like battier chalmers and miller and udonis haslem will wake up at home, and heat win in 7. Exactly what the NBA wants, exactly what will happen. LETS GO CELTICS BRING IN DJ AND JOSH SMOOTH.
Locking down Lebron for years to come.

nope, not true. players do not listen to the nbas orders of missing shots. everything you said is fictitious. the nba would lose a lot of long term revenue if it ever leaked that everything is acting. a short term gain is not worth that hit.
