    This Miami team has to be one of the most special teams in any sport to make a run ever. What a great year in the NBA

      And despite the referees make you horrible calls, we found a way to win.
      I'm going to be honest. I thought to fix was in in the second quarter

      Gibran Camus that’s the impact of Jimmy let’s be honest. People never give him credit even when he doesn’t have great offensive games he’s always a great leader n the players follow him

      Well said. I’m rooting for Denver but always cringe when I hear / see people saying “Denver in 4 / 5” - can’t help but think about how the ol’ “Bucks in 4 / 5” and “Celtics in 4 / 5” crowds are feelin lol

      @Joseph Turk well it makes sense that they don’t win 7 playoff games in a row, so I said Denver in 5/6. Not to dis the heat but Miami just gets incredibly cold sometimes during entire games and no one steps up. Have not seen that on the Denver side in a while

      Yeah me to being a Celtics fan I cannot lie I am enjoying these finals however I am cautioning people to realize it's the best of four games at first not a best of one that's the problem I got with heat fans a lot of them were quiet as a mouse on church running to pray and now everyone coming out of the woodworks those the fans I cannot stand now if they lose two straight and that's a big if now where will those fans be but other then that I'm pumped for that third game

      @Pankil’s Videos The rest of the NBA sees this Heat stability and the Ws that result and what do they do? Fired four coaches recently that recently won Championships. Suns fired the coach that turned around their franchise and took them to the Finals. He was promptly hired by Detroit and given the highest salary in NBA history. The Suns then hired the coach who recently won a Ring with the hated Lakers. Madness.

Miami isn’t rolling over and they may have figured out a major Denver weakness in this one. Jokic is a monster though and he has a great team around him. Get out the popcorn 😎👍🏼

      This is bs to credit the heats win to the lack of mental strength by the nuggets…
      The nuggets went on a 40-17 run and came back down 11..
      he heat won this game because they died a little bit more than the nuggets and that it. Great series. The winner has won both game…

      It's unbelievable to me that professional players keep doing some of the dumbest things ever, Denver kept leaving guys wide open because they were double teaming for no reason at all, today's NBA is not just amazing it's also full of highly paid lazy and low IQ and players who don't give a damn about playing defense, it's a shame bro that guys will leave their man wide open to help someone who doesn't need the damn help smh

    • MickieIverson
      MickieIverson 3 місяці тому +9

    • rickyricardo2006
      rickyricardo2006 3 місяці тому +8

      Its not him they are defending, its his teammates. He is still making the passes. But the pressure to jamal and company, thats what’s making the difference.
      Even coach spo got off on a reporter for suggesting that they stopped jokic. Which in hindsight its an insult to the effort Miami had in preventing jamal, kcp or mpj getting clean shots.
      Remember, its not jokic they are stopping, otherwise he wouldn’t have scored 41 points. And that’s easy to see to the naked eye

    • Talkball
      Talkball 3 місяці тому +1

      @Shelby Haiketic here's the difference that most casuals do not want to understand. The Heat are generating ALOT of great looks and even moreso against this Denver defense. It is a matter of executing the open looks. The Heat aren't necessarily relying on guys to shoot off the dribble fadeaway threes like the splash brothers. These are efficient shots being generated so they are going to fall at some point for an NBA team.

    This isn't really complicated. MPJ is shooting 29% from the field and 18% from 3 in the series on almost entirely open looks. He's a 50/42/80 career shooter that for some reason can't make an open look right now. The moment seems a bit too big for him so far. The NBA has sadly become almost entirely about shot variance

    Don't forget the genius of Spoelstra to come up with a game plan that wins games.

Let the big guy score and keep the rest sub 15 pts and you have yourself a chance. Can't say enough good things about Gave Vincent, this dude has courage, and he is a cold-blooded sniper. Duncan Robinson has surprised me. the man has stepped up in big games.

What stuck out about the Heat for me is how hard they played at the defensive end.

They are the more complete basketball team but them winning the series isnt some cake walk.. only ppl that never played ball at a highly competitive level would even think its going to be easy for denver n miami just some bums that is far from the truth yall act like miami wasnt just at the finals recently lol.

  • realtv101
    realtv101 3 місяці тому +6

    Heat don't really have anyone that can guard Jokic so I believe the strategy is to play him one on one but contain everybody else. Jokic is the type of player even if you double him he will still score but if you do it opens the door for everyone else. So forget trying to double him an do the best you can one on one a hope you can keep the other players from scoring.

    • QBAN2010

Denvers defense shows that spoe is much better than Malone. I think the momentum will carry to game 3, MIami will take game 3 also is my prediction.

    To be brutally honest, the only way to stop Denver is to let Jokic score, and stop everybody else. But the problem with that is if you guard other players more physically you can get in foul trouble. Which is what I would do if I was Malone, let Heat draw fouls until they have to play softer defense. That can be the remedy.

  • Cee Bee
    Cee Bee 3 місяці тому

    For Denver, Porter and KCP were the weak links in this game. Porter missed shots. He has to stop taking 3s. He isn't making them. Pass it or drive to basket. Then KCP continually left his man open on Defense allowing Miami shooters to have open looks. Also, Coach Malone was out coached on last play. He didn't use his timeout to set up a better look on that last 3 pointer. Yet the shot still almost went in!

    I said at the beginning of the year Miami was going to be in the finals. And when the finals started I said heat in 7. I’m sticking by that

      "Less formal" as in amateurish? Dumb jocks behind a mike? They are rather interesting.

      @Serge Foppossi It was a rhetorical question.

    Denver is a two-man team. Both Jokic and Jamal have to be on their A games and the supporting cast needs to do OK. This game Jamal got shut down by Butler. Jokic can score 50 but he cannot win it by himself. It did help that Miami shot well. It will be competitive every game I think unless Miami cannot shoot exceptionally as they have been doing thru out the playoffs. good series and both teams are at the top of their game. BTW Miami coaching staff must really be amazing as they are able to get this team with such a small size and limited talent to get to this point. If you compare Miami to some of the other high talent teams, they have no business being here. Players like Lowry, Spruce, Robinson and Martin are hitting well above their weights here. Kudos to those guys

      Exactly. Miamis played teams with superstars and competed. Imagine the heat with another superstar.
