    Have you watched the games against the Nets? He kept Miami in a few of them because of his 3 pt shooting during clutch time.

    That's just five games pal. Do you really feel like he's a great 3 point shooter?

    Bosh is good at mid-range.
    Not to forget Wade is allerginc to 3 pointers

    pretty sure he added that to his game buddy. he's no ray allen but he's constantly open and knock those down.

    you gotta watch the game if you want to make money on playoffs wizzle.

    Paul I may have missed some (not all) nba action the past week but to say I don't watch the game is laughable. If anything, I watch too much.

    What I know is this - Chris Bosh shooting 5 threes a game isn't a good gameplan. I fully understand the philosophy of stretching out Hibbert, but Bosh is most effective from mid-range and at the elbow. There's a reason Miami is loaded with players whose sole purpose is to shoot 3s. Bosh doesn't need to be one of those players, it's just a nice feature to have.

    Bosh improved his three-point shooting a LOT, but I still wouldn't call him "good". He shot 33.6 percent during season. On the flip side, that is actually "good for a center" if you want to look at it that way.

    I'm just busting your balls wizzler. But his spot up 3's have come up huge for the heat. Whenever they make a play for him to shoot 3 in the nets series he hit them.

    Yes he should be getting ISO and facing up Hibbert just beating him off the dribble but the spoelstra doens't look like he wants to do that.

    Yea I just think they should mix it up. Bosh is floating on the perimeter way too much. It's a great thing to have a big man who can shoot but I just think it's been too much outside to really be effective.

    Bosh is a capable 3pt shooter. I don't think people realize how much his game has changed since coming to Miami. He used to be a low post player and mid range shooter in Toronto. I can't remember the last time I've seen the Heat run a play for him in the post.

    I do agree that he is taking too many 3s but they need him there to space the court for LBJ and Wade.

    and at that point miami is -8 and the ML is almost unbettable for a heavy play.

    yes, this line has me a little hesitant now...may hedge out a little.

    Down to -169 now.

    This is weird as fukk actually. Are Pacers taking game 2?

    Money going on series bets isn't as much as it is to move spreads though.

    Heat should pull the series out in a Game 7.


    Going down 0-2 is not the end of the world. Everyone expects Miami to just roll out of bed and bounce back and win this game. It's not that easy. James and Wade played good Game 1s. The role players did not. They could easily play the same way again tonight.

    Yeah I can imagine you were hoping for the 2nd pick at worst given the odds and stuff. Tough break.

    I hope this doesn't convinced Luol Deng to resign with Cleveland, he's one of the Mavs' top targets this offseason along with Gortat from what I hear. Plus which I'd love to have a British player in Dallas, lol.

    You're 76ers will be okay. As long as you got in the top 3, that's all that matters. Not much of a difference between picks 1-3, huge drop off at 4 imo.

    Yea Krit the top 3 was crucial although like Seto said, I was really hoping for Top 2 once Cleveland was in there.

    Miami was favored both games and your predicted they would win at least one straight up...good job.

    This Miami team has never been down 0-2. So it shouldn't be surprising they won as a favorite.
