BIRDMAN GOES INSANE
Seriously, if you could step inside the mind of one Mr. Birdman, what was he thinking, seriously? He nearly pushed in Tyler Hansbrough's chest. Was Birdman thinking...
a) "We need a spark. We're playing like garbage. I better kick start our team's energy by kicking Hansbrough's butt."
b) "The hell with it. This goofy dude's been asking for it."
c) "Chris Bosh is playing really well, so the team doesn't really need me tonight or for Game 6 if I get ejected or suspended."
d) "RED RUM"
Yes, Bird could be looking at a suspension today. We'll know later on in the day.
BIRD'S BLOCK OF HANSBROUGH
Seconds after the altercation between Bird and Hansbrough was sorted out by the officials, Bird blocked Hansbrough layup attempt like it was all some kind of hokey movie script.
Udonis Haslem dunk early in the third quarter gave the Heat its first lead since the beginning the game. David West called Haslem a "one-trick pony" after the game. I must protest. Haslem is clearly one of those rare American mustangs you only read about, or my blog.
HIBBERT'S BLOCK OF CHRISH BOSH
Roy Hibbert's block reminded of us two things: (1) Carmelo Anthony shouldn't have tried to dunk over Hibbert; and (2) Bosh has an ankle injury.
HASLEM DEFENDS CHALMERS
Not that an Alaskan needs any backup when it comes to hand-to-hand combat, but it's nice to know Udonis Haslem has your back.
LEBRON GOES UNCONSCIOUS
These is very little that happened in the final seven minutes of the third quarter that didn't involve LeBron James. He did it all. He outscored the Pacers 16-13 in the quarter. Here's a video of LeBron doing things in Game 5.
