Can't tell if Phili is REALLY good or Miami is REALLY bad. But man everything for Miami on the offensive end is hard.

I mean, I want Miami to win, but at this point I don't even really care with how many mental mistakes they've made defensively down the stretch here. Good Lord, Whiteside, you're just going to give one of the best shooters of all time a wide open baseline jumper like that and not even hedge on him??

other than a lot of blocked shots, there isn't much def going on here...

Miami for all their reputation as a tough def team seem really lost at times on switches and just playing dumb.  Why are you allowing a wide open look by reddick?

Who choked harder - Winslow or Wade? lol

Miami just making Philly look better than they really are with these dumb, dumb decisions down the stretch.

Winslow, for sure.

DWade was pretty much all the heats offense at the end of the game.

welp, lets see if the heat can extend the series a bit....we need smart back badly if we have to take on that Philly team.

i know, we need to win our series first.

Alright, the Sixers took care of business.  Now the Celts need to win tomorrow and set-up a wildly entertaining 2nd round series

Big win for the Sixers. Going up 3-1 in the series heading home. That could be us tomorrow!

Philly just abused Miami's defense forcing those switches, which they don't really do.

Luckily, that's exactly what we do defensively, so they shouldn't be able to take advantage of us in that regard if we meet them in the second round.

Playoff Rondo just gave Anthony Davis a spectacular no look dime.

Intense game in NO.  Holiday and Moore both with 14 at half.   Lots of pushing and a few T's, another good game.
