Click on Answering Doubters, Answering Everything for my column off last night's Heat win.

G3: HEAT 114, PACERS 96: HUGE TEAM EFFORTS PUTS MIAMI BACK IN CHARGE: One-man show LeBron James needed support and Udonis Haslem raised his hand highest, with 17 points on surreal 8-for-9 shooting Sunday night in a 114-96 Heat win that gives Miami a 2-1 lead in the Eastern finals. LeBron would score 22 and again display a do-what's-needed mentality, aggressively foraying into the paint with more low-post play than we've seen from him in a while. Dwyane Wade scored an active 18. Chris Bosh hit big shots early. Birdman Andersen (4-for-4, 9 points) continued his torrid postseason. Just a huge all-round team win, with a 70-point first half reminding all how dominant Miami can be when it plays well. See link to my game column above. Original post: San Antonio is breezing 3-0 over Memphis out West, but the East is beastly in the NBA, with reigning champion Miami tied 1-1 and facing two straight in Indianapolis starting tonight. Public faith in the Heat 1aa1heatindreflected in betting lines is not yet abandoned, with Miami a 1- to 1.5- 1aa1g3point favorite tonight despite Pacers having momentum and being 6-0 at home in the playoffs. South Florida's faith in the Heat seems to have taken a hit, though, as reflected in the poll results below that indicate a plurality of more than 43 percent of respondents call themselves "very concerned" that the Heat might not advance past Pacers. Even if you factor in a sizable number of votes from Indiana skewing results somewhat, the poll still indicates real concern by Heat fans. That concern could pivot toward panic with another loss tonight. Miami simply must have two or three guys step up in a big way to help one-man-show LeBron James. Talking to you, Dwyane Wade. Talking to you, Shane Battier and Ray Allen on 3's. Talking to you, Chris Bosh (especially in rebounding). Miami's BIg 3 era was forged on skeptics and doubts and the team tends to respond when pushed. As Chris Bosh said after Game 2, "Our backs are against the wall, and I think this is what we need right now." We're about to find out if he's right.

Note: The vast majority of poll votes below were cast after the Game 1 loss and before last night's win. Amazing how the mindset has changed overnight, isn't it?

HOW CONCERNED SHOULD THE HEAT AND THEIR FANS BE RIGHT NOW?: Original post, following Game 2: I'll admit, this probably is not a question that lends itself to an honest answer. Not right now, when the loss is still raw. Not right now, when the reality of a 1-1 Eastern Conference finals heading to Indiana is still being fathomed. And maybe 1aa1heatfanespecially not here, where a poll will draw mostly Heat fans who may or may not be able to answer with total honesty. But we'll give it a shot anyway. I'll count on Heat fans to try to shed their fan's skin and answer as if they were neutral observers looking at this Heat-Pacers matchup from the outside. Me, I still like Miami's chances. I think the Heat will win one of the next two to wrest back home-court advantage. But I also think Indiana poses a grave risk of ending Miami's repeat-title dreams. The Big 3-era Heat were forged on doubt and are accustomed to outside panic after trailing in three playoff rounds a year ago. As Chris Bosh said around midnight last night, "Our backs are against the wall and I think this is what we need right now." He may be right. But mindset and will won't get it done if the Heat can't limit Roy Hibbert' s inside dominance. Mindset and will won't be enough if LeBron James doesn't start getting a lot more help from his teammates, fast. Where is your head at as a 1-1 series moves on to Indianapolis? Vote and say why.

DOLPHINS, AFC EAST WIN PROJECTIONS: Dolfans, Las Vegas says you should maybe hold off on that "Super Bowl!" chant. Bovada's win over/unders for AFC East are Patriots 11.5, Dolphins 7.5 and Bills and Jets both 6.5. Pats' projection ties Broncos and 49ers for NFL-best. Low is Jaguars at 5.

SAD-O-METER: MARLINS NOW VIRTUALLY AT RECORD-LOSS PACE: We have this new blog feature we update as 1aa1bbsadlong as Marlins' winning percentage is under .300 -- as long as the New York Mets' infamous 1962 record of 40-120 (.250) is within dubious reach. Well, four straight losses now have S-O-M purring ever closer to record pace. Updated Sad-O-Meter: Current record, 13-36 (.265). Season projection, 42.98 wins, 119.02 losses.

After what I saw the past two games, they need to be worried. When the 3's are not falling, and you have to rely on LeBron, you're in trouble. If the 3's start falling, I wouldn't worry. Right now, I'm worried for the team.

As always with the Heat the story revolves around Miami and not the other team. It'll be said that every time Miami has gone down in a series they have taken their game to another level to come back.

But it can't be easy for a team to go from being a huge underdog with nothing to lose to suddenly facing the pressure of being in a series.

This Indiana team is really fun to watch, it'll be interesting to see if the young players can handle the pressure at home.

Feel rather sorry for LeBron, it is just him out there. One man team and it is still close. What is the reason to have Ray Allen on the team? Watching him play is painful.

The Heat SHOULD BE WORRIED..If the bench doesn't straighten out they are history.

OC..you need to see Star Trek on 3-D I-Max, that's all I'm going to tell you.

when does football start's again?

It's on now! FOX. Live from Wembley, Champions League Final. Borrussia Dortmund - Bayern Munich. Overflowing crowd in the pub in Houston, even though few are Germans.
This is the super bowl of Europe. Kick off in 30. Anthems soon.

No one as dominant as Bayern, 29-4 ties, 1 loss. Smoked Barcelona 7-0 on aggr.

Damn, i wish i was there. Look at the ceremonial pre-game scene.

The word from friends and co-workers is the 3D experience of Star Trek is blurry, lacks HD quality, detracts from the story and adds no value. I can't confirm because I saw 2D..i voted for 3D but the group overruled. I plan to see it again in 3D for the heck of it.

Otherwise, the movie is great, except Kirk seems pathetic at times. Only a few plot holes and some canon changes. I'm a bit torn on the alternate timeline concept, but on its own it is entertaining. Given that the alternate timeline is the way they are going, it is done very well.

Good Coach- Frank Vogel

No Coach- E. Spoelstra

Why Didn't You Say That This Time Mr.Cote?

Kaz,

Told You Indiana Will Be A Tough Series. And Also Said, Miami Should've Whooped Indiana During The Regular Season.

Now Indiana Is Even More Confident. They Know They Can Beat Us In The Postseason Also.

When Will We Start Putting The Blame On The Coach When The Heat Underperformed?

The Heat Are The Most Talented Team In The NBA. They Have The Most Talented Player In The Last 20 Years. Or Since MJ.

When Will We Blame Spo For His Incompetence?

Instead Of Running Up And Down All Season, And Making Wade Play All Those Extra Minutes During The Season. WHY DIDN'T HE PRACTICE REAL BASKETBALL? In The Playoffs The Game Slows Down. And Your Team Needs To Run Plays. Not Just Isolation All Game. And Transition Is Almost Non Existent.

And Yes, Isolation All Game. Notice The Heat's Half Court Basketball Consist Of 1 Guy At The Top Dribbling And He Either Goes 1 On 1 Or Calls For A Pick. The Other Guys Just Stand Around. No Back Door Cuts, Or Screens Off The Ball. NO OFF THE BALL MOVEMENT. No Plays.

And We All Know My Biggest Problem With Spo, Besides He Runs No Plays. SPO PLAYS HIS STARTERS TO MANY MINUTES. WE HAVE A BENCH! USE IT!!

M.Miller, J.Jones, R.Lewis Should All Be Given At Least 5 Minutes A Game. And Allowed To Shoot. The Heat 3 Best Shooters Not Named Ray Allen Can't See The Court. Cause The Coach Doesn't Want To Use Them. Any Of Those 3 Can Easily Drop 15 In A Night, But We Will Never Now Since They Play ZERO Minutes A Game.

Awesome half for the goalies. Dortmund dominated with ther star Poles taking most of the shots, including a 30 yd scorcher from Lewandowski tipped over the bar last second. Then some point blank shots. Munich finally started to respond about 35 minutes in, with a number of close calls by Robben and Muller. Superb goalkeeping, this game should be 4-2.

I like the wide aisles at Wembley. It's the modern European stadium design. It was timed to empty a capacity crowd at the new Warsaw stadium in 8 minutes. Wembley has 30k+ more.

Damn what a play by Robben. Awesome move, timing and back pass. Favorites Munich are up. Bummer. But can't deny this could be history's best team. at least in terms of individual season. The dominant Real Madrid of the 60's and Ajax of the 70's may argue.

It's tied up!
Moments after Piszcek taken down in the box and no call, Reus is fouled bad by Dante and pk by the Turkish international is good. Game on. Dortmund s on a roll. Breakaway by Kuba. ..over the top.

Mystery why Dante wasn't given his 2nd yellow on that foul. Commentators wondering that themselves. Should be 11-10 now.

Hloly crap, must've just been the best defensive play ever right now by Serbian-American international. Saving Dortmund's butt.

Mike, you seem like a nice guy but has anyone ever told you that you can get more excitement watching snails race each other than watching soccer?

Robben is freakin genius. Just ran though the field. 2-1, when seemed like we're getting OT.

Woodcock' you're wrong. This game is fantastic. End to end at incredilble pace. by two of the world's best teams.
3 minute to game.

Bayern are champs, deservedly and expectedly. I'm sure Robben gets MVP. Though, wonder what may have been if Dante gets his 2nd yellow and they play a man down.

How do you like Fox using their NFL theme music for this game? Pretty awesome.

Woodcock, I'm not watching baseball or golf. Or a low level soccer game. This was the big game. Most viewed annual game of any sport.

Dortmund female fan just shot the bird towards the camera in the post game medals and trophy.
Rest of their fans are classy, chanting their team song as they get their runner up medals. Commenatators are predicting a Marlins type fire sale by Dortmund. They evolved lot of world stars this season. They can't afford to keep them, but top clubs are offering big bucks. This was really Dortmund's only chance. I root for the underdogs, but came up short.

Sure, sure, Mike, you should see the race, the slug on the left has about a half shell lead on the other slug and they only have about three months left to get to the finish line. Now that's excitement.

Sorry Mike, I missed that classic game too...bummer on my part eh?

Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day, teach a man to fish and he will eat for a lifetime.

Here is Obi's 2013 version....

Give a man welfare, a free cell phone , free internet, cash for his clunker, food stamps, section 8 housing, free contraceptives , medicaid, 99 weeks of unemployment, free medicine and he will vote democrat for the rest of his life..

mike1,

robben makes up for missing a wide open goal versus spain, but it's nt the dutch who are thrilled, it is the deutsche. munich had a season for the ages and deserved the trophy for their year's work. fantastic season and annihilation of barca in the run-up just doesn't happen often. i can't make a comment about cruyff and ajax as the first futbol match i attded was in amsterdam in 78 right after cruyff retired.

Give A Man A Team Of Allstars, He Can Win 1 Title. Teach A Man To Coach, He Can Build A Dynasty.

for those of you that want a football "fix"..Here is a fair write up on our young QB.

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap1000000205919/article/top-10-qbs-25-or-under-ryan-tannehill

Heat's game tonight.

if the bench shows up we win, if they don't we lose..its that simple.

ps--Chalmers is still the worst PG in the NBA

when does football starts again??

second ps--the Miami Sports God=Dashi ?..hhhmmmm

Did you people think we were going to sweep every team and head to the finals with only 1 or 2 losses? The Pacers are a good team and this could be a 7 game series. I don't think being 1-1 is a big reason to worry right now. If we can't beat the Pacers on their home court then we might start to worry but until then I say it's going to be a fun series.

By the way herald, not all of us like using Facebook all over the internet, please bring back the other commenting options.

Obviously you can't sweep every team and end up with 1 or 2 losses but you get my point.

@FZB, I feel so cheated, I voted democrat and I didn't get any of that free stuff, do you know where I am supposed to go to pick it up? I am especially excited about the free contraceptives and getting cash for my clunker. And to think I have been voting democrat all these years for nothing.

Observer2121,

You simply don't know where to look amigo..

OH, THE DRAMA!! "A TEAM OUT OF FOCUS"!!!!!

jeez, NBA games are decided by 1 or four points out of two hundred scored, and the locals are out of focus!! they lost by two baskets on uncharacteristic turnovers by the greatest player in the game today; relax, the heat are gonna win the next three. it might be a different story had danny granger not been. give it to the pacers- they play together with less than lottery picks, i do believe. am trying toi think of the last NBA champ that wasn't laden with talent- how about the 74-75 warriors- can you name a player other than rick barry or keith wilkes?

UFC ALLOWS AGROMEGLIAC TO FIGHT (and lose)

anyone who remembers the "oxton creeper" from the sherlock holmes movies will be acquainted with this condition which causes the incredible growth of head hands and feet. google "rondo hatton" to find out that this condition can change a hollywood leading man with good looks into a side-show freak. since the "ultimate fighting" world is chock full of losers, trannies and the like, i guess nothing is past them. pretty soon they'll be throwing people who used to be called "retarded" now upgraded to "special" into the cage against each other.

UFC AGROMEGLIAC FIGHTER LOSES- (more area of head to hit)

see above for the lowdown on the disease and its most famous victim. allowing "ultimate fighting" to have diseased participants says it all about "inside the cage.

FZB and Mr. Woodcock,

see- we can all get along!!!

http://us-mg5.mail.yahoo.com/neo/launch?.rand=89c3jpoidpc9g

You guys that are expecting the worst for the Heats really had a bad memory!, we are at the same point of 2012 playoffs, let's be positive, trust in our team, forget about the coach, it is time for the players to step up and show they're real top of the line players and show Indiana who is the best team, period. Players win game, coaches loss them, remember that. Go Heat!!

Hey Observer2121,

Maybe the reason you haven't heard about all those free things is because you're a closet republican, see you gotta have the right attitude to be a liberal like, laziness or a great desired not to work or get ahead in life or a great sense of entitlement that the government HAS to take care of you..

if you don't think like that then you're more close to being a republican than you think...

Let s hope the Heat have a "TEAM" that shows up in Game 3 tonight.Granted...a very good Indiana team is playing well.However...only LeBron is playing Championship level NBA basketball this series......as is Indiana.The rest of Miami s teammates except Birdman....are playing at low expectations and ARE NOT EXECUTING.2 players against 5 or 6 won t cut it fellas.I agree with many sports writers and most all fans with common sense will agree/see that Miami has not played well in the stretch of both these 2 games against the Pacers.Don t want to name evryone but basically to see Wade not playing like a Superstar hurts not to mention it has really hurt LeBron and the team.Wade is hurt I understand.Too bad for the Heat though if he can t somehow play magically for 2 or 3 more games.No one else on the Heat seems capable either to step up their game.Hope we re not witnessing the decline of Miami Heat basketball this series but so far.......that s what we ve been shown.Hoping for ANY positive change/inspirational play from other players tonight NOT named James or Wade.THEY are needed now more than they ever have up until this point in the year.Good luck tonight Heat and may you play with tremendous pride and passion and remain free from injury.

I dont think the Heat will lose more than 2 games in any series this year and if Im wrong I will accept it they are all professional basketball players.
I say play loose and lets up the tempo dont slow it down unless you have to,the Pacers wont win a series that is played at a faster tempo.

First of all that you to the Heat for making my day.

@FZB, no closeted republican here, I believe in helping those less fortunate than me and I believe the government should be the vehicle to help those who are less fortunate. I am proud to live in a country that offers medicaid to its sick citizens who can't afford insurance, offers unemployment benefits to those who have paid unemployment insurance while they were working, I am happy to have some of my tax dollars go towards providing incentives to people to buy new cars so that we could save an industry and thousands of American jobs. That's kind of what makes this country great, we help each other out in times of need. So no, I'm no closeted republican who thinks that being selfish is the way to live a fulfilling life, and I don't think Ayn Rand was a visionary. I'd still like to know where I can pick up my free cell phone and internet service if you wouldn't mind letting me know.

And to Spoelstra, see what happens whjen you get Bosh and the other involved in the game, WE ALL WIN!! Well the Pacers don't win, they lose.

Vagas has the Mighty Air-Breathers a 7.5???
FZ, I dont want to sound like a azz-wipe but Vagas is pretty accurate about these things.
If the fins end up 7 and 9(Again) Do you think its time to dump your son, Or should we give him 4 more years of medioctity??
Thoughts??

The Indy 500..........zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

9 days in Brussels, one day in Brugge, 7 days in London and headed to Paris tomorrow for 5 days.

Saw Eric Clapton last night at the Royal Albert Hall. Unbelievable. What a performance and what a setting. Not the best concert I've ever been to but it is the best venue.

Well now, see how easy that was when the bench/ role players come to play?

Anti, More than likely a 7-9 season will mean doom for my son but I'm optimistic that we'll be around 10-11 wins and we don't have to make ANY CHANGES in our current GM/Coach situation, that will set the team back another 3-4 years or more .

Tom, I envy you...Sir Eric?...neat.

Observer...I don't have a problem at all with the government helping out who needs to be helped..What I do have a problem with is the lazy asses that refuse to work and live free of of us and there are plenty of those around, our welfare is growing at a alarming rate and your boy Obi doesn't seem to care..

If you don't wanna get up in the morning to go to school , or go find a job ( providing you're fully capable both mentally and physically ) you don't deserve to lve off of my tax dollars..

@FZB, since lazy people don't wear a sign around there necks to distinguish them from the people who legitimately need help I am fine with them being helped since the vast majority of people who end up being helped are those who are truly in need. I am more upset that the republicans find it easier to spends billions on war than they do to spend billions on improving infrastructure and education here at home. I also find it funny that whenever there is a republican president my 401k seems to suffer and then is rescued when there is a democrat in office.

Politics aside, I have to give a shout to Wade who seems to have turn back the clock in the last game. What happened to the days when every game had 3-4 fast breaks or long outlet passes for easy dunks? When Wade and Bosh get aggressive and start to play their games we will have no problems winning the title, they can't just sit back and let James do the heavy lifting. I feel bad for James Jones, the guy can rain down the 3s and barely sees the court.

Guess Miami didn t like Hibbert saying the Pacers were coming for them.Too funny.(OK.......at least Haslem didn t like it anyway.)Great team win last night in Game 3.The Heat played like the CHAMPIONS that they ARE.It was a very DOMINATING effort all around.Let s win the next 2 now.GO HEAT.

Boys,

Today is memorial day, its is a day to thank all our veterans specially those who paid the ultimate sacrifice...god bless them all.

Observer, we will continue our little " discussion " on another day...

Later guys.

I just saw an ESPN feature on that "lesbo chick Griner"...yikes, that's a dude !!!!

That's a man with tits !...

Not that there is anything wrong with it, hehe

FZB,

Tom,

been to brugges and it is an eerie place, medieval home to all kinds of wacked out spirit-types i've been told. think ghent id nicer but brigges has beaches if i remember. all that time in brussels? no time to see my hebe cousins dealing in diamonds in antwerp? always gret to get back inside the city limits of amsterdam and start the party. never been to royal albert hall, but for inside royce hall at UCLA is nice w/o the history, and outside always loved the greek theater way betterthan the hollywod bowl and without the gnarly traffic. the fillmore east was also a nice plave for a show, and in those days bill graham, RIP, gave you your money;s worth. how about miles davis, steve miller and neil young/crazy horse for 5 bucks circa 1970?


I was wondering when Haslem was going to get more minutes. The guy has been a card carrying stud for the Heat since he got here, especially in the playoffs. Every championship team has a Udonis Haslem, an all effort guy who is at his best when the chips are down. He gets the game ball for yesterday's win.

Observer, you must not have been around when Jimmy Carter was president.

Well said, FZ.

God bless America.

I thought the 500 was the best race that I have ever seen until the last three laps. They are going to have to adopt the same yellow flag rule for the end of the race that NASCAR has. To end what was the most exiting race in Indy history a race with over 50 lead changes and only 5 yellow flags to end the way it did was a crime. That said, I would still prefer to watch snails race than watch Soccer, Tom.

Spoelstra Sucks.

Admit It.

The Heat Have The Most Talented Team In The NBA.

But Coaching Is The Heats Weak Link.

Vogel Is A Better Coach Than Spo.

The Heat Are More Talented Than The Pacers.

Oye Dashi...look I can almost agree with you on some of coach Spo's decisions ..it makes you wonder sometimes but to say this asswipe Vogel is a Better coach?...

Por favor...

Thanks Woody...

FZB,I got a feeling we're gonna see more of Dashi now that Armando has gone on vacation, Along with the other degenerates that hang out on that blog 24/7..
Prepare yourselves.

Doomsday is coming people, hehe

Anti-
Armando's blog is lame & FYI there is a Jimbo on there that ain't me.

Here's to the ones who serve, now & past.

I served 7 yrs military & 21 & counting fed law enforcement. My wife, 30 years Army. It is an honor to serve this country & the great people who live here.

Today is my only day off this week. We hiked out to the Eagle Nesting area again today & saw one adult & 2 juveniles perched high in the pines. awesome sight.

Tom, envious of your trip. Never been to London but been to many places in Europe. Paris is one of a kind city in the world. Notre Dame, Eiffel tower, arch de triumph, etc. On our drive from Rammstein to Paris I did stop on the Rhine river and empty my bladder in the muddy river to honor George S Patton. We stopped in Lorraine France and visited St Avold (sp?) American Cemetary that interred 10,000 WWII GI's including 4 MOH recipients. French keep the cemetary in impeccable shape. Enjoy, my friend.

God bliss you Jimbo,I take it that your a retiree with all yor travel's and you geserve it..
May I leave you this song...
http://youtu.be/O69gr-z0tTQ
A great Seager song...IMHO.

Jimbo,

Much props and much respect to you my blog brother...live long and prosper...

Here's the key to tonight's game..

if our bench and role players (Haslem, Chalmers , Allen ,Cole and Battier )show up we win, if they don't we could lose this game..is that simple.

hhhhhmmmmm, I wonder what Obi's supporters will say about this.

http://www.cnn.com/2013/05/28/world/meast/syria-civil-war/index.html?hpt=hp_t2

KAWHI LEONARD GETS HIS DUE!!!

the announcers (radio) couldn't keep from repeating what an all-around great player my guyn from san diego state is. still think SDSU got robbed when their player unintentianally brushed against an official and turned their handling of uconn around. i don't nthink that the spurs will go down without a pitched battle in the finals.

If Miami gets to the finals they will meet one of the best teams in NBA history. The Spurs run with Tim Duncan is truly a historic one. Just a great, great team. The Heat will have their hands full with these guys.

The Spurs are 12-2 in the postseason, whereas The Heat are 10-2. Pretty evenly matched, and if both remain relatively healthy, the edge goes to the team with the most dominant player in the league. Miami in six.

Note: (to fuel TGYH)

...and if the Heat had Gregg Popovich as their coach, they would sweep.

Good observation, but then the Spurs are 4 and 0 when they reach the finals.

Although they don't have an answer for LeBron, no one does, the Pacers have beaten them and played them tough, and no one is going to mistake Hibbert for Tim Duncan.
