Mario Chalmers Leads Miami to 3-1 Lead

Mario Chalmers Leads Miami to 3-1 Lead

With LeBron sidelined, Chalmers comes through to dominate the 4th quarter.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Mario will not be denied.

One thing Mario Chalmers has never lacked is confidence. On a team star studded with sure-fire Hall-of-Famers, he still humbly sees himself as a go-to option and in game 4 he showed the world why. 

Game 4 was like a lot of the Thunder vs. Heat series, ugly, grinding, hard-nosed basketball. These are the types of games where it's tough for the refs to not get involved. On every play bodies are going flying. This is a Finals dominated by names like Wade, Durant, James, Westbrook, Bosh, and Harden, but Mario added Chalmers to the mix in a big way Tuesday night.

Chalmers came into a virtually tied game and dominated the 4th quarter wit h 12 points including a clutch layup with under a minute to go to push Miami on to victory. He ended the game with 25 points on 9-15 shooting and 3-9 from downtown. When LeBron went out of the game with cramps, it wasn't Wade, but Chalmers that took over the game. His confidence is perhaps his greatest strength. And although he's the 4th or 5th option on this high-powered offense, he knows how to turn it on when it counts. If Miami goes on to win the NBA Championship this year, let the record show it was Chalmers that brought them game 4.

Miami Take Series Lead 2-1

Miami Take Series Lead 2-1

It wasn't pretty, but it's still a win.

HoopsVibe's Very Quick Call: Miami has the momentum up 2-1 and homecourt advantage. Maybe the King will finally be crowned.

The Heat started off strong building a 20-26 first quarter lead, but as we all know Oklahoma has a history of starting slow. The Thunder game roaring back winning the 2nd and 3rd quarters to set up the fourth quarter showdown we've all come to expect in these playoffs. 

The Thunder didn't quite look like themselves going into the 4th. James Harden was having a horrible game with just 9 points on 2-10 shooting and Kevin Durant had sad a large portion of the 2nd and 3rd quarters with early foul trouble in the game. 

On the other side of the ball, LeBron was able to get good looks largely inside the paint. When LeBron receives the ball from 17 feet and in, his shooting percentages go way up. In game three LeBron lived in the paint in the first half. This is a recipe for success as it give him more confidence in knocking down the jumper when it presents himself, but prevents his settling for long fade-away shots the Thunder are relieved to see him attempt.

In the 4th it was really anyone's game. The Heat build up a 7 point lead with about 5 minutes left and it looked like Miami would cruise to their second NBA Finals win, but 30 seconds and 2 Wade turnovers later it was a 1 point game. Sefolosha is a defensive machine and has proved capable of picking Wade's pocket multiple times late in games.

In the end Miami won it at the free throw line. It wasn't the most glamorous win in NBA history watching LeBron and Wade knock down free throws, but it was still a win. LeBron ended up with 29 points and 14 rebounds as Wade had 25 points. Durant had 25 points on limited minutes due to foul trouble and Russell Westbrook 19 points. 

Game 4 is in Miami on Tuesday.

Video: Dwade clocks Hamilton

Miami sends a message to Chicago with physical play.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Miami getting tough for the playoffs

James Jones gets ejected with a flagrant-2, Dwade gets a flagrant-1, and LeBron James levels John Lucas with a bone crushing pick as Miami lets Chicago know this is a tougher Miami Heat team than last year.

Not much was really on the line in terms of the standings last night as the Heat and Bulls met for their last regular season game, but plenty was on the line as far as builing momentum for the playoffs. Clearly, Miami had an agenda to play more physical and that's exactly what they did. In the process they also dominated the paint, grabbed more boards, and won the game 83-72 as James went off for 27 points, 11 rebounds, and 6 assists.

Gabrielle Union banned from first row

Gabrielle Union banned from first row

Dwayne Wade bans Gabrielle Union from courtside seats.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: Gabrielle Union can sit anywhere she likes in my world.

 

It's no secret that actress Gabrielle Union and Miami's Dwayne Wade are dating. It's also no secret that Union has been a huge Miami Heat fan for years. What might shock some fans is how Wade had her banned from the first row of Heat home games. Apparently, Union's heckling of opposing teams was getting out of hand.

Gabrielle confided to Conan O'Brien last night that her heckling was getting so bad her boyfriend asked her to go back a couple rows from the court. Union went on to explain that Wade is not immune to her critique. She believes if he can't hear the truth from her, who can he hear it from. 

Maybe it was Union's passion for the game that was the real spark behind Wade's forearm shove to Richard Hamilton last night resulting in a flagrant-1 foul on Wade and Hamilton lying flat on his back. This is the most heart we've seen in the Heat since the Big Three were assembled.

2003 NBA Draft: Best First Round Ever? (Poor Darko Edition)

What’s funny about this draft is how people remember it. Sure, everyone knows that LeBron went number one overall, and then Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, Dwayne Wade and Chris Kaman were all drafted in succession. But the only thing anyone remembers is how Darko Milicic went number two overall.

Rumor: Heat want Jerry Stackhouse to replace injured Mike Miller?

The Miami Heat are looking into adding another veteran to their experience-laden roster. Jerry Stackhouse, who will turn 36 years-old next month, worked out for the Heat in Atlanta on Thursday, a source close to the team said.

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: The MIA and The Stack?

Reports indicate the Miami Heat could sign veteran Jerry Stackhouse as a fill-in for hard luck Mike Miller, who is out with a broken thumb until January.

Stackhouse, even in his mid-thirties, can play. Last year, he was an off-the-bench game changer for the upstart Milwaukee Bucks, averaging close to 9 points in 20 minutes of action.

The concern will be chemistry, not talent.

Miller is a shooter. When healthy, his stroke will punish opposing defenses for double and triple-teaming Chris Bosh, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade. 

Stackhouse is a scorer, getting points in a multitude of ways. However,  his shot, while good, probably isn’t deadly enough to deter opponents from helping on The Three Kings.

Word to NBA executives: Don’t chase after Dwyane Wade in free agency.
Thursday , May , 27 , 2010 J.N.

Word to NBA executives: Don’t chase after Dwyane Wade in free agency.

Yes. I said it. NBA general managers will be wasting their time chasing superstar guard Dwyane Wade. If you are still planning to pursue the man, it is not good if he is the number one option for any ball club, besides Miami, among others in the talent pool this summer. For a while there, he was the secret real prize. However, things change with time. Today, he is not the number-one grand prize as believed before and here’s why.
