538 has the Heat at 73% to win the Finals.

There's gotta be a bug in the system doesn't there?

Why are the Lakers going big against the Heat? There's no need for Howard. Rondo get 2 fouls in the first couple minutes that I missed?

Need either Rondo or Caruso in there.

Nice for LA to not have to play Miami with Miami missing 2 of their 3 best players. UGH.

2 years in a row NBA Finals determined by injuries. We’re Lakers going to win anyway? Maybe. Toronto certainly would not have.

The mental poise of Butler is pretty impressive. Hope the Heat can close this out for the win.

And this game reminds me of when the Celtics won G3 against Cleveland a few years ago on AB’s bounce around three. Miami completely emptying the tank to win one game missing players and they’ll get totally worked on Tuesday.

where I was last at
and Breen's anecedote about only two teams winning a championship down 2-0, and he mentions the '06 Heat.

the other team was the '69 Celtics in the classic 7-gamer against the Wilt-West-Baylor Lakers.

Fuck you Breen

Won't you want to puke when the Lakers win it all and tie the Celtics with 17 titles? Believe me I hope I'm wrong. Never want to be more wrong in my life.
This will be the quietest Lakers title ever.

No parade. No authorized fan celebrations.

The games are being mostly ignored nationally because of the election and the NFL.

I’ve been ignoring this series and have managed to not watch a single second of it (its pretty easy with so much sports going on). That being said I said a bunch of stuff about Jimmy Butler being overrated and a faux-tough guy but that was a big boy game tonight; a truly spectacular performance. He proved me wrong for sure.

Kelly Olynyk had 17 points in an NBA Finals game? Yes!
I just saw he had 24/ 9 in game two and 17/7 tonight

How did Danny let this Canadian SOB get away. Almost as bad as Phi letting Jimmy walk away
