Yeah.. I've been watching games ..or not watching games.. with the sound off because I just want to hear homers I guess.. I'll have to try and stream Grande and Max on monday.

I'm going on a trip to Europe for a month starting on Tuesday... I'm going to have to hopefully find a bar in Madrid, Barcelona, Zurich and maybe Paris where I can watch the finals.
I really need homers for these games and both Grande and Cornbread care as much as we do. Plus they are far less takey even while criticizing the execution of either team.

Tatum with another playoff game going 30+, 10+,5+.

His giant first half, putting up 25, was huge

I'm so fired up. But I've also got to clean my kitchen and GODDAMN I CAN'T BELIEVE THEY WON THAT GAME!!
"Cleaning the kitchen" aka getting the white powder off the counter? Feel like I have a white nose right now watching that forever ago and still can't fall asleep!

You're being kind which is nice but NBA fans should know that's an auto review to determine if 3 shots or 2.
you'd think, but I saw multiple decent NBA reporters on Twitter who missed it too, tweeted about it, then had to delete when a colleague pointed out the rule.

Many years ago, the last men’s league game that I played with Joe Mazzulla’s father on my team, we were down by one late and it was a similar situation. We gave up the lead late. Our game winning shot attempt missed long, and we both went for the tip at the same time. We crashed into each other, the tip rimmed in and out, and we lost
:oops:

I also had a horrible day, one day after getting some bad news about my heart stress test.

I’m not going to say that this team is going to kill me, but please handle crunch time leads properly
:oops::oops::oops::oops:o_O

I’m calling it right now. Memorial Day Massacre Monday night for Miami, similarly on how Game 7 went for the Yankees when they were historically reverse swept
:fonz::love::notworthy:

Havent watched a single minute live due to severe anxiety issues, just check the scores on my phone when I think the game is over. Then come here to read the comments.

Monday night, I will NOT be watching the game live......

Vincent with his hands in the air doing not much except celebrating Smart’s miss while White is right in front of him going to the rim for the tip-in is eerily similar to Rodman and Salley (I think Salley) running down the court celebrating the Pistons defensive stop while Isaiah Thomas is left on an island trying to find someone to whom he can inbound the ball (he eventually found Bird).

Pretty sure he has his hands in the air to try and say he didn't foul Smart on the three.. I'm pretty sure he did shove him a bit which is why Smart was off balance. Doesn't matter after White's shot went in.. but if White didn't make it I think Smart would have had something to complain about there.

I think the play was supposed to go to Brown. Smart set a weak screen on Bam and let him go over the pick..and then cut to the ball. The play was probably supposed to go to Brown with either a turn and shoot or a pass back to White in the corner when he cut there. Smart let Bam slip the screen and the rest is history.

Butler should have taken the free throw instead of Strus on the Grant foul on Bam with the ball still waiting to be inbounded. Reggie Miller still wants Bam to get two free throws.

I mean.. they're staring down the barrel of the first 0-3 turnaround in NBA history.. Spoelstra has to talk confident. Butler has to talk confident. Celts HAVE to come out strong on Monday.. because they'll get the best the Heat have to offer.. and just put the whole thing to rest early.

Shaq talking about how Jimmy and Butler can't play this bad again.. Celts also aren't going to miss that many threes at home in a Game 7.

I thought that whole sequence was a momentum killer for the Heat – as was the Bam technical/rim hold/goaltend.

Two hours later and I am only just realizing White inbounded.

Tatum was pretty crucial. He took two guys 30 feet from the basket, leaving three on the three other Celtics. Nobody took the guy inbounding and the back door was wide open. Bounced right there. White busted ass right away. Just made it. It actually looks like maybe the play was supposed to be a pass back to White, or had that as an option.

I'm just saying! Johnny Damon showing up like a Miami home crowd fan -- a guy who's from Florida -- I'm not trusting that dude.
Sure but you'd think the guy would have respect for the 2004 Red Sox comeback and not be a total moron.
I think he does respect the 2004 comeback, but I’m also pretty sure he is a total moron.
I feel like being a moron was totally their thing.

But he was probably cheering for the celtics.. possibly.

Tatum was also right at the rim for the rebound, ready to grab it on the other side at the exact same moment as White. When he needs to dial it up, he has a knack for getting huge offensive rebounds (lucky it wasn't needed).
