And the Game 3 Oscar goes to ... Dwyane Wade

Nod to Dime Magazine for bringing this to our attention. I was seated on the opposite baseline, so I completely missed this during the game.



Of course, the Oscar for Game 2 went to Lance Stephenson, who seemed to embellish that inadvertent elbow by Wade. Wade's elbow was reviewed by the NBA and upgraded to a flagrant foul-1.

Looked like a push to me. What's your point, Joe?

Always a fan of exceptional acting.

I think the push would have taken Wade out of bounds anyway. He would have had to reestablish his base, and that probably would have had him step over the baseline. However, he did try and "sell it". I think the official noticed that it was a sell job, and thus didn't call it. He would have had a better chance of getting the call if he would have had his natural reaction to the push. He had nowhere to go with the ball.

I don't think he was flopping. When you see the replay, he looks like he's trying to fall out of bounds to get the angle so he can skip-pass it to Anderson in the corner, but right was Wade went for the angle, Birdman cut towards the basket and was directly behind a Pacers player with zero passing lane. Wade's face when he's falling isn't, "hey man that's a foul", it was "dammit Bird."

I wish Mickey Arison would buy the Dolphins instead of that loser Ross.

yea, it was a flop. But he was pushed and he is favoring his left leg over his right. just keep that in mind.

That game was stolen not loss.. These Officials should be under investigation... 5 to 7 will be dog fights.. Come to play... 5/7... Best of three... Come to play...

I was just thinking about the play where CB went down and got called for a foul.. CRAZY.. He slightly injures himself, nothing happens, and the Officials called a foul on him.. I mean, WTF man...

I'm hearing every one called us floppers, dirty, and every name under the sun.. How crazy is this... That team is dirty, they flop too much, but they try to make it look like we're doing this... CRAZY... MAN, LOCK IN... F THAT...

The haters are trying to give the Spurs another title... If they let the Pacers win, crown the Spurs... The fix is in...

The SUCK list is long. Joey Crawford and his crew, Wade & Bosh (neither are max players), Lance the thug ... but it did appear the Pacers wanted this game more - STRANGE.

I'm gonna keep silent, because I just pulled over for nothing... DAM.. My bad... Shit get deep...

Pacers have played the Heat 7 times this season. Pavers have won 4 out of 7.
2 of 3 in regular season and 2 of 4 in ECF
The Heat better wake up. Or they will be on Vacation this time next week.

I think the league has to do something about these Officials... These games are on Nation TV.. Everyone watching... What kind of message are you sending by allowing these Officials to strip teams of wins where everyone can obviously see what's going on..

The best player in the game stands firm, his teammate doesn't take the pick, Stephenson playing with 5 falls into Bron, and he gets called for the foul...

For the record, after watching Westbrook go down, be careful, that team is extremely dirty.. They want to push the dirty title this way, but when your on TV, we all see what's going on, its obvious...

I'm just saying...

OK, it took all day to get that loss out of my system...

We move forward... Game 5... LET'S GO...

I hear you black. I traveled to Indy and saw both games. An absolute travesty last night! I'm at a loss for Spo giving so many minutes to Ray. Wade looks so slow out there. Back to Ray, you still think he's in sellout mode?
