The painted area is obviously Danny Green's kryptonite
Heat had LeBron in the post with Parker on a switch and didn't look for him on the hi-lo there.
Bad decision by Parker to help off Chalmers there.
I liked that look - 4-1 pick and roll got LeBron going to the rim. Abandoned that despite success in last two series.
Is Wade OK?
"Tim Duncan has never had an iconic game. He nearly had a quadruple double in Game 6 of the 2003 Finals" was said without irony just now.
Bosh lets Duncan beat him down the floor for a dunk. Nobody boxes out Leonard. These are killer mistakes for Miami.
LeBron James can't score on Boris Diaw. Diaw blows past LeBron off the dribble. Mario Chalmers can't be stopped. This can't be life.
How does Bosh let Duncan outrun him like that?
I'd like to see Miami go back to their snug/side pick and rolls with LeBron and a point guard that worked so well in Game 2.
The reason LeBron wouldn't just pull up is that the Spurs want him shooting 16 footers, and he knows that.
Tim Duncan treating Game 6 like Harry Belafonte: "Daylight come & me wan' go home."
Right idea, LeBron. Just slipped.
LeBron's got to start his attack from further back. That close and it becomes a strength game, which Diaw can win.
Manu Ginobili is out here like, "Sorry, guys. I know we need one more win. I got nothing left..."
I'm just not sure LeBron on Parker is a good idea this early in the game. The cumulative fatigue could catch up to him late.
Might be time for Udonis Haslem.
Bosh cannot let Duncan get baseline with that help coverage. Major breakdown.
The T, the I, the M, the M, the Y. The T, the I, the M. It's Timmy. It's Timmy.
Mike Miller overhelped a quarter step more than he should have, and that happens.
Dagger of a possession for Miami's defense there. Such great defense and the Spurs score anyway.
Bosh was a quarter-step late on that pick and roll coverage, and that happens.
That was a great defensive sequence from Miami, from covering the initial p&r to not overhelping to cutting off Manu driving.
There's the Spurs running Danny Green along the baseline during a pick and roll, as I wrote about after Game 5
That's a great look by Wade. Could have settled.
Riding in the neighborhood!
Man does not fly in the house of Diaw.
More incredible defense from Boris Diaw. He just stands LeBron up on these drives. James has to build more speed on those plays.
Mario Chalmers had 13 pts combined the last 3 games, but is walking around here like he's the nicest dude to ever lace 'em up
Chalmers playing well means Miami doesn't need to go big all the time, which conserves LeBron's energy.
If you stagger Birdman's minutes with Splitter's, it negates some of Birdman's deficiencies defending the post.
Another mid-range jumper. Spurs will live with these Heat shots.
The Return of Birdman. It's. About. To. Go. Down.
Heat taking so many mid-range jumpers. That's San Antonio's defense at work.
Boris Diaw shot that ball like it was a croissant
Spurs immediately run The Loop with LeBron on Parker, trying to tire LeBron out. Expect to see that a lot.
Kawhi Leonard thought about opening his mouth after dunking on Mike Miller, but couldn't bring himself to do it.
So, Mike Miller is Jeff Bridges' new partner in RIPD?
Kawhi'd you do Mike Miller like that?
That's the danger of the Spurs. Miller had to help on a rolling Duncan, leaving Leonard open for three
Mario Chalmers just stared down the Spurs bench after hitting that 3.
Heat continuing to have LeBron attack left to right quickly off free throws.
I'm with LeBron. No foul there.
Mike Miller must've been soooo jealouos of Danny Green this series. Like, that should've been me. My jumper stays wet.
Miller fronted Leonard on that Motion Weak set. I did a double take that Leonard was the screener until I remembered SA's small lineup.
Heat ran the same motion on their first two plays: Wade cut across the lane, Miller cuts for one screen, Bosh cuts for another.
Tim Duncan. Glass. Some things in life stay the same.
This game won't be about playing hard, it'll be about making shots.
According to Jesse Williams, the Spurs would like to win tonight.

It's about to go down Heat/Spurs. Can Miami even it up?
I think Miami will pull it out. Play with a ton of energy.
Won't get me !!
Spurs vs Heat?
Someone with awesome video editing skills should do an NBA Playoffs One Shining Moment video.

I heard Joey Crawford is one of the refs tonight
I predict that talks magically "rekindle" after Chris Paul hears why the Clippers pulled out.
And shoutout to Jalen for the Kim/Rihanna trick question. Gotta keep em on their toes!
[sees Pitchfork gave Yeezus a 9.5/10] PERFECT
Yeezus is Kanye's most half-assed album ever, its a D+ lyrically, and there are 3-4 good songs out of 10
10 Days !!!
Thank God for all of His blessings and for allowing us to see another day !
