    The finals are only played on Sun, Tues and Thurs for TV. My favorite is 3 days between games 1 and 2 followed by a day break after they travel.

    Thank the lord that we have the league and owners looking out for us! #lockout

    I see a day break for travel. I guess that's enough.

    Don't expect another Spurs win in Miami. That was a poor show by Wade and Bosh and they both know it. I fully expect the Heat to come out fighting next game, now they know they can't just fart around and expect to win.

    If you go back 10 years, you will find that all NBA finals games broadcast on ABC are always played on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. They have a designated date as to when the first game will start and a drop dead on when the last game will be played if it goes 7 which will be Thursday June 20th. (Unless a hurricane hits Miami that week).....

    The Heat didn't get to the line very much. Expect that to change now.

    Heard that LeBron asked to be taken out near the end of the third qtr and that threw off Spoelstra's rotations having both he and Wade on the bench...that is when the Spurs got back in it and was able to stay within striking distance. Lebron had normally played the entire second half of all of the playoff games when they were close and looks like the 7 games with the Pacers took it's toll.

    They got two full days to get some rest physically, but I am sure that their minds won't get any rest worrying that if they lose Sunday, it maybe over.

    I understand James being tired, but why was Wade? He jogs around the court 75% of the time.

    Flopping and whining about every call takes a lot of energy.

    Major blowout by the Heat. Up by 25+ at one point, I had to endure 7 minutes of the deepest recesses of the Spurs bench following a 30-3 run by the Heat. Was close until the 4th quarter.

    Heat will need to win two in a row to win this series.

    If the Heat win G3 then they will win the series. Must win for SA.

    Maybe. Maybe not. The Spurs already proved they could win in Miami.

    Miami hasn't lost 2 in a row since January I believe.

    Maybe, maybe not.

    The Heat & Spoelstra proved yesterday that they can dominate the Spurs for long stretches. How often does Pop go to GT with 7 minutes left? This is really the battle of two really good coaches & teams. I am really enjoying it so far.

    And the Spurs since December

    Incredible streaks. That's a long time and a lot of games.

    It must make for some confident players on both teams.

    Looked like Splitter wanted to go gorilla but ended up lemur.

    Do we have an upset brewing? I didn't think SA could defend like this.

    Say what you want about LeBron, but he's at least out there playing when they're down 20 unlike Wade and Bosh.

    Wade tried to get his "draw fouls" game going, but the Spurs wouldn't let him.
