Great game so far between the Mavs and Heat.

Mavs come out strong but the Heat close the Q on a 12-0 run.

23-22 DAL after 1. Bosh & Wade looking good. Lebron on the bench with 2 fouls.

Nah. Just a coincidence that that scrub was in the game.

That was insane. lol.

Chalmers is sooooooo much better than Arroyo at the point for the Heat. It's not even close. And Miller makes them even stronger now.

They're going to be tough to beat down the stretch once they have more games under their belt.

That was Raptor worthy. Amazing. So many bad shots and so much standing and watching. the zone was not kind to Dallas there.

I disagree about Chalmers. Although Arroyo doesn't match up well against Kidd. Arroyo's defense has generally improved a ton while in Miami, and he has better pg skills on offense. Chalmer is having one of his better games, and by the end of the season, if he figures out how to play with so much talent around him, and improves his shot to where it looks to be tonight, he might be the better guy.

I like Chalmers at point in the playoffs where they're going to be zoning in on the big 3 a lot more than I like Arroyo.

I'd go with Miller honestly at starting PG if I was coach, but I know it'll come down to Chalmers vs Arroyo.

I like his size and his shooting ability compared to Arroyo's. I think that he has more range on his jumper. We'll see what happens though. At least they seem to have a couple of options now, which is nice for them.

I'd like to see Miller in some sense myself. He's got the most all-around ability.

I flipped over to the game in Atlanta, and it is so dead in that place. It's like you expect the zombies from the Walking Dead to appear any second.

The NBA should just contract 6 teams and things would be so much better in the NBA with the product on the floor and the excitement around the league. Its not like the ATL MEM LAC CHA NOH MIN(and you could probably add in DET IND at this point) fans show up and support their team anyway.

Really goes to show how good we are as fans. Our team has sucked for pretty much 75% of it's existence, yet we still show up.

Teams like DET and IND that were perennial playoff teams (and champions in DET's case) can't even get people to show? Sad.

Chalmers just has such a hideous shot. Man he has to work on that, or he'll just keep getting open looks that he won't be able to resist taking.

Yep. Lebron was horrible that game though... he just looked out of sync all game long. Not sure if DAL wins that if he's his usual dominant self.
