State of the NBA (Part 3: East; Southeast)

In case you actually were following my blog consistently (thanks, mom), but somehow missed part 1 and part 2, there are the links.  Those cover how I see each NBA team in the Atlantic and Central Divisions in the East.  But I know nobody was really interested in those divisions, so I saved the best (at least from an interest perspective) for last.  As always, I will do this in reverse order of standings based on the 2010-2011 regular season.  So if you want to read about the Heat, scroll down to the bottom.  I don’t care, you’ve already clicked on the blog – counts as a “view” for me.

State of the NBA (Part 2: East; Central)

For Part 1 of my team-by-team breakdown covering the Eastern Conference Atlantic Division, click here.  Otherwise, here’s the breakdown, as I see it, of each team from the Central Division.  Again, in reverse order of their regular season record: Continue reading

Round 4, Game 6 (Miami v Dallas)

Final score: Dallas 105, Miami 95

Before I forget everything I watched in the NBA finals and more specifically, game 6, I guess I should blog about it.  I’m sorry for my big layoff, but here we go.  Just so you know going into this blog, I’m not going to talk about the game specifically, but more in general about the finals and the future.  And I’ve got a bunch more blogs on the way, so I won’t cover too much in this one.

Round 4, Game 4 (Dallas v Miami)

Final score: Dallas 86, Miami 83

Right now the plot of this finals is like a super-cooled liquid it’s so thick.  The series is tied at two games a piece, but nothing I’ve seen in 4 games gives me any reason to believe that the Mavs can pull this series out.  Yet at the same time, nothing I’ve seen from Miami makes me feel like the Heat have locked this series up.

Round 4, Game 2 (Miami v Dallas)

Final score: Dallas 95, Maimi 93

Here are a couple quotes from yours truly after game 1:

“Going forward, Dallas has a lot of work to do.  Like I said before, a tie isn’t good enough for the Mavs, because they just have such an extremely large talent deficit.  Dallas has to continue to play good defense and hope Miami starts missing some 3′s.” Continue reading

Round 4, Game 1 (Miami v Dallas)

Final score: Dallas 84, Miami 92

Sometimes I really hate being right and unfortunately for me, game 1 played out exactly like I had feared.  Dallas hung around all game (very much like Chicago did in the previous series) only to get run out of the gym in the final few minutes.  Actually, the more I think about it, game 1 had plenty of parallels with the Chicago series.  Dirk (like Rose) had a nigh number of points, but shot a poor percentage (given for Dirk, poor is sub 50; for Rose, it’s sub 40); the game was close throughout as Miami only pulled away in the final minutes; during that closing stretch, though, Dallas couldn’t buy a shot; Miami won the game with defense and unreal plays by James and Wade.

Miami v Dallas (Preview)

As I’ve mentioned before, numerous times, really, I hate the SuperFriends and it is killing me that they made the finals, much less have a chance to win.  But I’ve been over that in my previous blog posts, so let’s move on to looking over these teams for real. Continue reading
