Looks like LeBron is on the same path of Jordan so far.

And, oddly enough, against the same team.

Oddly enough the path differed in the end result- Just grab 1 or 2 rebounds in the final minutes and win Lebron, .....oh well.

At Least the Clippers lost this weekend so now BOTH the LA teams can burn in hell :-X oops, go fishing.

As I've said before, the Pistons can't stop Wade.  He barely played more than half a game, and they still couldn't stop him.  Let's go, Heat ... three more wins .....

I knew that Miami wouldn't show up for tonight's game and end up playing like ****.  Dammit.

it looks like shaq and d wade could have used a little help.  after them the next most points scored was 7 and the much ballyhooed antoine walker only scored 2.  the biggest problem for the heat has been depth for a while.  if the heat lose the series, the big talk again will be that team work and chemistry beats a couple of superstars.

At least the Heat finally grew some balls and competed.  They were in it at the end, and actually had a chance to win.  If I were Detroit, I'd be a bit nervous heading down to South Beach.

i agree.   the heat just shouldn't have spotted detroit 20 in the 1st quarter.  otherwise they were very competitive.

Have I mentioned that Detroit can't stop this man?

It's crazy how good Wade is playing.

Yeah ... shooting 70% FROM THE FIELD is absolutely ridiculous.  And he's a guard.

I did not expect Miami to beat Detroit.  I also would not be shocked if Detroit took 3 straight now and beat Miami.  However, it does look likely that the Heat will advance.

And if the Heat advance, they win the title.

I'd be shocked by it.  I'm not one to EVER count Detroit out, but I don't think they can beat Miami three straight times ... regardless of where the game is played.  I expect them to "hold serve" and win game five, but I think that Miami will end the series when it goes back to South Beach.  Detroit's defense has yet to find an answer for Shaq and Wade, and their offense is having trouble putting the ball in the hoop.  They're hurtin'.

I mean, it'd raise an eyebrow maybe.  But I think the Pistons are the best team in basketball.  Nothing they do shocks me.

But again, I do think they're likely going to lose to the Heat now, and that the Heat will win the title.

don't forget that which ever team wins in the east still has to play the winner from the west.

Which hopefully means Dallas.
