What an incredible game, this Finals has been the most entertaining I can remember in some time. I don't think I even care who wins, I just want to see them keep going at it like this for 7 games.

That game was like a punch square in the nuts ... made even worse by seeing it in person.  It's still bothering me now.  Ugh.

Cavs and Knicks fans have been feeling this way since "The Decision" special on ESPN.

Don't worry, the Heat will probably still win their championship this year.  But I'm still rooting for Dirk to win one.

I wouldn't mind seeing Dirk eventually get a ring ...  I just don't want him to do it against Miami.

After Game 3, I finally realized I am pulling for the Mavs. Heat are an interesting story, but you get the feeling they'll be back here, a lot. I feel like this is probably the last gasp for Dallas.

They are going nowhere fast though, unless that bench starts showing up, not to mention the other 4 stiffs standing around out there watching Dirk.

I think just about every team does.

Jeopardy time:

"Through the last three 4th quarters of this Finals series (that's the final 12 minutes of each game), I have only scored nine TOTAL points."

Sure they do.  As much as I love Joel Anthony, center is their weakest position.

I'm guessing that you're referring to LeBron, but like many other misguided people, you're not giving him credit for everything else that he's been doing in the four quarters.  He's creating easy offense for others and playing lock down defense.  Players that he has directly guarded in the fourth have only scored a total of FIVE POINTS.  There's much more to playing winning basketball than scoring.

Nonsense.  The Heat are currently poised to win the next 5 titles, with or without Dwight Howard.  Who's going to beat them?  They're a player-made All Star team.

You're both wrong.

The correct response is "Who is Lebron James?"

That was my other guess, but i saw that Dirk was calling Terry out for his lack of 4th quarter production.

On that note, if the Mavs don't win tonight they're done.

Wow, another great performance from the self-proclaimed 'king' (the heir to MJ's throne):

3-11, 8 pts, 0 blocks

Hopefully he can ride the coat tails of Bosh and Wade to a handful of rings. . .

Yeah ... I'm not sure what's going on with LeBron.  It would be one thing if he was missing shots, but he's actually shooting well in this series.  He's just not being aggressive offensively.  At all.  Wade is carrying this team ... again.  You could totally see it in his effort in the second half last night and his near plea for help in the 4th quarter.
I'd like to see LeBron attack in Game 5 ... but he should've done that in Game 4.  I don't know what to expect anymore.  The only positive from last night is that we only lost by three.  As badly as they played, the Heat should've been blown out.  I still like our chances, but a few things have to change.

BTW, he had zero points in the 4th quarter last night so that's NINE total points for the King through four (4th) quarters, or 48 minutes of basketball when it really counts.
