And I just realized I made myself out to be Buster Bluth
Thanks for blowing up nap time, Jack.
Sometimes home-court edge can work against you. If this game is tight in the second half, there's gonna be a weird vibe in the AAA.
Heat have been very good after losses. Spurs have historically been very good at closing teams out. So, you know, I dunno.

Joey and Monroe. Only the most ardent NBA fans can tell the difference. http://t.co/3JCjvu71lt
Pop on player motivation: They know what their jobs are. That's one of the reasons they're in the Finals. They do their jobs.
Pop on the title chase: It's a big deal for a while. You go after it, and then life goes on. You hope you win.
Vacation might start tomorrow and the best part will be going a whole month without hearing anyone say they need to stay aggressive.

I want to meet the one guy who voted for Artis Gilmore in our Most Popular Spur poll.
Just went through security at the AAA with a dude the name of Shotwell. Danny needs to co-opt this name, STAT.
2) Spurs fans should celebrate. You're probably going to get a fair whistle.
1) Nobody should be surprised Joey Crawford is officiating tonight; it was his turn in the rotation and ....

With more than 1,500 votes cast, Manu is crushing that vote. Surprised, yet not surprised.

You know you're in south florida when the hertz not only has a porsche but a lambo.
Danny told me that viral commercial was digitally altered. After the Finals, I think he might have been lying.

Bienvinido a Miami. Otra vez.
That said, if the series gets to Game 7: 14 of 17 Game 7s in Finals history have been won by the home team.
Since 1985, only three teams have swept Games 6 and 7 of NBA Finals. Last one was 2010 Lakers, against Ray Allen's Boston Celtics.
In other words, after two weeks and five games, we really still don't know a dang thing.
And then there's this: Teams in Spurs' spot (up 3-2 in Finals, with final two on road) have only won 5 of 9 series (via whowins).
Fascinating Vegas note: according to Sportsbet, the Heat are still slight favorites (-130) to win the NBA Finals.
Some context: They were racing. The one laid out, and was waiting for uncle to declare winner. The other said screw that. Already competing.
Pic of Manu's boys brings to mind favorite Captain Jack quote, when asked about two Ginobilis in the NBA: That's a lot of turnovers.
28 Finals MVPs, 26 are in HoF or will be, only Cornbread Maxwell never made All-Star Game. Green has a great chance to crash the party.

I just stepped on danny's game shorts. I feel like I insulted NBA history.
The ginobili twins are raising hell http://t.co/OmFy7NVEou
The Spurs have played in five NBA Finals and still never trailed in any of them.
Spurs 114, Heat 104. Take 3-2 lead. One win away from fifth NBA championship, but they'll have to get it in Miami.
Spurs 114, Heat 101 with 1:06 to go. Time to call the fight. (Possibly decisive) Game 6 is Tuesday in Miami.
The way Green's going, he's going to completely obliterate that.
Green up to 25 3s in five Finals games. Unreal stuff. 28 is the all-time playoff record, held by Dennis Scott and Ray Allen.
Parker layup, Duncan blocks LeBron, Manu finds Danny Green for open 3 on the break. Basically the perfect capstone.
Spurs are maybe going to need to score at least two points in the final three minutes to win. Maybe.
Heat are going to lose for only the fourth time this season when forcing 16 turnovers. 102 points from your starters will do that.
If Danny Green could make a 3-pointer, Manu Ginobili would have double digit assists.
Spurs could probably just run out the clock on this win without much offense, if they could stop allowing 3-points per trip.
