Melo: I'm going to start passing more.

Lose by 41 to a below .500 team. LOL.

And, they don't even have their pick. :man10:

.... And some here still want to tie the Lakers to Melo for 5 years. He's getting his stats yet they still suck. The more he tries to lead the worse they get......

refs have been terrible in this first half between Pacers and Heat. Pacers seriously got the short end of the calls thus far and its not even close.

well the only reason the Heat lost is because they are on cruise control until the FInals.

Lebron was pretty bad in the 2nd half ...

Overall and physically he seems to have hit the usual " three Finals in a row" wall

Hibbert just beasts on this team on both ends off the floor ...

Pacers still have issues when it comes to making décisions and passing the ball quick enough .... Hill and Stephenson are horrible in this department .

Early in the season but the team with HCA will advance in the Finals

The Heat are definitely in 'cruise control' mode so far this season, and with the East as weak as it is their incentive to hustle even for 'big' games is about as small as it could possibly be, they could essentially tank and still wind up with HCA for most of the playoffs. But even with that being true, this game reminded me of everything that bugs me about Lebron as a player. He's undeniably proven himself and he's exhibiting some level of talent and ability that is essentially unprecedented in the league, champion, perennial mvp...etc...etc. but by the end of the third quarter it was pretty clear he was doing his "well I don't even CARE, I wasn't even trying anyway" pouting that he has done his entire career.

Which is something I'll just never understand about the guy. If things are stacked, his play approaches the heavens, but if things are choppy, you just never know what you'll get, sometimes he'll play up, but enough times in his career to where it can not be considered a fluke or exception, he wilts. Of course, being on a stacked team, his wilting doesn't always cost them the game, but still...

I guess the point is, it's Lebron's league right now, and as a basketball fan I want to be able to really see what he can do, but when you tune in for the big match-up and he plays like this and you remember 'oh yeah, that's Lebron' it just sort of spoils it.

This game also reminded me of how much I can't stand watching Dwyane Wade play. He's like 08 Paul Pierce, you gotta give him credit for his array of shotmaking and penetration, but half of his game revolves around playing for the whistle. Hate to see that.

Pacers are a really interesting team this season and I wouldn't be at all surprised if they win the championship. They are playing with a hunger that is reminiscent of the Celtics 08, Lakers 09 and Heat 11 chips (as well as many preceding those, just keeping it in recent history) they have chemistry and every position is in capable hands(though their depth is a little shaky) Of course, the Thunder seem to have their number and I wouldn't question the Thunder's resolve either. If it comes to Thunder vs. Pacers in the Finals, that'd be pretty great.

One other thing about Lebron, just kind of an aside, but is it just me or has his ball handling and dribbling gotten _really_ ugly? I mean, it's never been that smooth to begin with - highly effective and capable, but not 'smooth' - but lately it's almost comical to watch him dribble the ball, it's still effective of course(for the most part, he has been turning it over a bit more recently) but it just looks so goofy at times you wonder how it is possible he's not picked off more often.

No one talking about Joe Johnson? Kobe and Marshall are lucky he didn't play in the 4th Q :man9:

Oh my.. So I am watching the Pacers/Heat game (since the kid was doing dishes) and oh my the announcers are a weeeeeee bit Heatcentric. If I wasn't watching I would think the Heat were winning because 90% of the convo is how great they are...

This is why I love Stu and Joel.

Edit: They just came back from T/O to show how many tough shots Indy has hit to have the slim 3 point lead. Really it was just a way to show the Heat defense love.

I now know why the Heat are so damn good..... They murder people. Two back to back 3's give the Heat the lead late in the 4th.

Some pretty hilarious moments in this game, like Wade just climbing on top of Lance Stephenson and getting a foul call. Also got to love the roid rage incident with Lebron and Mario. Then Lebron just pushed George in the back on his three point shot. No call. Silly.

Pacers throw the ball away. LMAO.... They just praised Lebron for making the defensive play even though he was beat and the Pacers just missed the ball with Lebron trailing him. Got to love these guys.

Paul Goerge misses the shot with Lebron basically pushing him in the back. What did the announcers say after the replay? Was Goerge behind the 3 point line? lol... Well Heat got the win.

Yes, you have an unbelievable crowd Lebron - same ones who walked out of the arena when you were down and seemingly out in game 6 of last year's finals?
