As much as I hope we win by 50. My gut feeling is we lose, or we win by less than 6.

I'm glad now that I couldn't watch the game...I'm sure I would be quite pissed right now.

I saw the first half... even though we were up, i knew we were losing it... too much irregularity by the officials convinced me the heat were winning.... didn't see the second half. HOWEVER, 47 freethrow attempts for the heat, versus 16 for the Warriors.... just ridicules

It was a good game... to bad we couldn't hold on. If we had a stronger bench this is ours.... but there wasn't anyone who could come off the bench and handle the presure defense the heat were using. Or even if we can get a low post player, this is where Udoh, if he can develop, will help us out. Also return of Beans would be nice.

great game by warriors killed by referees letting heat play defense and not letting warriors do the same. nothing new. good defense is only good if referees let you play fouling, hacking and so on. some teams can do that, others not. for this alone i hate defense. since it's not a talent or a skill, but a bully raping the fairy. bully wins in the end, but the ugliness of it makes me wanna puke. i just wished that smart didn't want to play the lead, but keep on running the bully throat with beautiful virages of a dancer. oh, wait, the dancer was smashed down to the floor and we had not enough of shoes to fly as long as we wanted. hated this crap.

my reaction to one simple stat:
lbj/wade 33 FTA, warriors 16 FTA.

It was a combination of the light switch flipping for Miami, being at home, and the refs giving them a lot of the calls in the 3rd to get back in the game. You could see it coming. Hard to fault the Warriors too much. I know we're not going to shoot a lot of FT's because we're an outside shooting team, but last night was ridiculous.

the season stat for free throws is miami 29 to warriors 21. wade/bron got 33 alone (4 over the TEAM average) and warriors got 16 (5 less than average). you bet when the team is behind and plays hard defense, they must commint fouls, it's like dunks if you play fast break basketball - you can't go naked into water and not get wet. and this really kills team spirit and especially a thin team like ours that rely on skill and creativity plus speed. you hold, you grab, you smack and all of that becomes nonexistent. also, see that lee fall after anthony foul, do warriors need more injuries? ellis falls no call, so why would he risk driving more? i bet these smaller players not getting fouls makes them injuryfobic and forces them to rely on jumpshots, which are hard to get off if you're being hacked and held in so called defense. of course if we had one barkley type bully we might have had a chance or a dignity meter rise up by knocking miami's primadonas down, but that would make us the same ugly **** (as them) with couple of ejections.

I swear, I wanted to wretch in the second half. I don't think I've felt that angry for a while now.
