Just realized if Miami pulls this off they would have defeated both of the top dogs (the #1 seed) from each conference on their way to a title as the 8th seed. Wonder if that has ever been done before.

Can the Warriors pull off a trade like this? The numbers work.

Draymond+Poole to Boston.

J. Brown+Brogdon to GS.

Rumor has it Brown wants out.

I'm loving the way both teams play the game. Hardly any flopping (even Lowry's been under control) and very little whining on calls. So nice that we're not seeing Celtics, Lakers, or Suns out there bellyaching after every call and flopping their way to victories.

I would not mind who wins but I think Miami is a better storyline.

An 8th seed winning it all with undrafted rotation players...

This was an easy win for Denver but they couldn't execute their game. Heat just changed the face of this series. That home court advantage in Denver just disappeared. More income for everyone in extending this series. Rooting for Miami, but Denver is clearly the better team. Their starting 5 is a nightmare when they are executing.

Disappointed but not too much. The Heat are good. Just wanted Denver to close the deal.

I'm rooting for Jokic but damn the heat are fun, and I'd be happy if they won too.

I love a win-win series like this for bball fans.

That was a very great rebuttal by the Heat. I like a finals matchup with two entertaining team in which I have no investment lol.

Malone with the Kerr-esque 8-man rotation

Spoelstra's so good.

Well done Heat. Kept up the defensive intensity and executed on offense when it counted

That was an epically entertaining 4th qtr.

Spo executed like 70% of the Kerr Strategy on Jokic. Make him into a volume scorer but not a volume assist guy. Make him defend in space defensively (adding Love into the mix was helpful with this along with just general rebounding). Was different because the Heat played a lot more zone and imo did not up the pace like Kerr likes to do.

Hell of a win for my Heat.

That was great defense by butler

You take away that 2 1/2 minute stretch where the Nuggets kind of blew their cool, and they might have pulled this one out. Sigh.
