Well, it was everything you would hope for in a Christmas day matchup. LeBron James vs. Kevin Durant, and it lived up to the hype. LeBron finished with 29 Points 8 Boards and 9 Assists to lead the Heat.

Check out ESPN for the highlights if you missed the game. 




Does Miami have a chance? As a Heat fan I would sure like to think so.

Winning the first 2 games the Heat looked in control of this series early. To be honest I thought the Celtics would be lucky to win 2 games in this series, I really thought 1 was more likely. The Heat just seemed far and away the better team.

So what happened? Good question.

The Heat went to Boston and started digging themselves in holes early, to the tune of 18 points. Its tough to beat a good team like Boston, but  it is even tougher when you dig yourself a hole that big. The Heat who sometimes struggle with stagnant offensive fell into that same groove. They are not a jump shooting team, that is simply not the way they are built. Doc Rivers would throw a zone defense at the Heat and they simply have not been able to beat that in the 2 years that this team has been put together. The zone makes you take jump shots and prevents the drive to the basket which is what the Heat have relied on.

So what happens next?

Well I think the Heat respond. Great teams can overcome adversity. Going into a win or go home game in Boston I expect LeBron James to take over this game. I think it takes a 40 point 15 rebound game to set the tone and get the job done on the road.

No excuses, as the great Al Davis once said “Just Win Baby!”

Just look at those eyes and try to tell me he’s not coaching the ‘Miami Zombie Rebellion’.


How long do you think it took him to come up with this gem?

It’s pretty hard to hate on this aspect of Miami. Lo Viste

Yes, Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo was fouled in overtime last night. As a Miami Heat fan, I’ll admit it. The call was missed, but now it’s time to move on. You may be thinking that I probably wouldn’t be saying this if Wade was fouled and the Heat lost in overtime. Well, I would, and I will tell you why.

One of the things that makes sports great is the human element. In sports, just like in life, mistakes happen. Life isn’t fair and neither are sports. Referees are going to miss calls, sometimes in your favor, sometimes not in your favor, but thats how it goes. How often do you see a guy admit he fouled someone, or say it went off my hand last. Almost never. That is part of what makes sports unique, things don’t always go exactly how they should.

If we knew what was going to happen, would we even play the game? No. Thats why Appalachian State can beat Michigan in the Big House, and George Mason can make it to the final 4. On paper games are decided days, weeks, even months before they are played, but the great thing is sometimes the papers are wrong.

So for the next fews days Boston Celtics fans will be complaining, and with good reason, but like it or not there is a human element in sports. Humans are not perfect and neither are the sports they play — that’s what keeps it interesting.
