They still lost, but yes fouls were not called equally. Oh well though.

yah its true
and the last shot was a foul so OKC would of tied it
send it to OT and then win

There was still 12 seconds left on the clock though. Even if the shot had gone in, Miami would have 10 seconds to get a shot off on the other end of the court.

yah but OKC needed him desperatly

When Kobe choked tell me, how much hate did he get?

well it was cuz he choked badly
when MVP's choke its ussually not that bad

I still respect LBJ more. LBJ is not that far behind, it's bearly a .12 % difference which is really nothing. LBJ still goes 20+ in the Thunder's home. Tell me how much concentration do you need to score shots when thousands of fans are booing at you. Tell me how easy it is to get super confident when thousands of fans are screaming out "MVP" when you have the ball in your hand.

so
durant does the same

Tied 1-1 I was pretty surprised that OKC lost a home. The advantage is will the Heat now. But if they want to win they need the whole big 3 to play a factor.

yah
durants doingh great
westbrooks doing great
harden ...
oh harden
even collision is doing better than you

Well it's 2-1 now. It was a good game. The Heat was dominating the whole time though.

lie
the thunder did GREAT in then third

It doesn't matter if they do great in the 1st half or whatever. It's about finishing the game with a dominating win. They need to get to the line and make free throws. They should not commit silly and stupid fouls. Harden needs to step up and make his threes or drive into the lane and score. Because right now, the Heat's big three are owning the Thunder.

compared to their regular starts they did good in the 1st half

They need to get to the line and make free throws

what are you talking about
the thunder are the highest free throw team in the league

They should not commit silly and stupid fouls.

true

Harden needs to step up and make his threes or drive into the lane and score

VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY
true
bosh is killing Harden

Because right now, the Heat's big three are owning the Thunder.

actually they are not
durant is just beating james by a couple of points
wesbrook and wade are back and forth
and bosh is killing harden (@quoted line above)
if harden picks up his game tonight
the thunder can win

Since when was Durant a MVP?

uhh he is the highest scoring player in the league
he got MVP for the all star game this year
he is the most accurate player in the league
anymore questions

Exactly and tell me how good does Kobe do in his home court?

I'm talking about the finals. They're only shooting 70.1 percent. And Durant's not getting to the line in the fourth quarter. And had 4 points in the fourth.

uhh he is the highest scoring player in the league
he got MVP for the all star game this year
he is the most accurate player in the league

He's talking about the MVP. As in the MVP. The one Lebron got.

Who cares about the all star game? It's a game to have fun and dunk all over the place. Also, put up some trick shots to entertain.

I don't think Durant is physical enough to handle Lebron. For points they basically cancel each other out, but on Defense Lebron is more Physical and "In your face" type of guy. If Miami wins tonight then I think they win in 5, if OKC wins then I stick with them in 7.

Agreed. No Defense is played at all.

bosh is killing Harden

Of course he is, Bosh is a power forward, Harden a guard.

cuz they no its no use for his AWESOME shooting skills

Awesome shooting skills? He is really good, but awesome? No. Jordan was awesome, Steve Nash, awesome, Kevin Durant awesome? Not yet. Maybe in a few years when he gains experience. He takes some inexperienced shots sometimes. Not as many as Westbrook. He is killing me with his shots. I can't believe some of the ones he takes and others that he takes and misses. Like that 3!?! that was a terrible shot.

lol You actually think an all star game MVP actually means something? Everyone just messes around and has a good time until the last minutes of the 4th quarter.

not better then durant does in his home court thats for sure

Look at how many records Kobe has broken, tied, and created. Kobe has reached the age of retirement and he still managed to be the 2nd best point leader. He still managed to get his crappy team into the 2nd round of the playoffs. And he stills pulls off shots he would do when he was younger. Kobe can still slip through any defense and look at how old he is. You can't tell me Durant is better than Kobe.

Sorry for the double post but game 4 just ended.

Westbrook's back must be hurting from all that carrying he did, nice 40 bomb he dropped, but if he didn't cause that foul OKC would still have a chance of winning. Harden's confidence is no where to be found, Durant's clutch shot wasn't on that game.
On the other hand LBJ didn't score a lot but all those assists he made and he kept scoring at the right time. Wade had a nice game like always. Bosh also had a nice game, and Chalmers! Chalmers was very important in the Heat's success to that game.

Yeah even though chalmers did well it seemed like when I was watching every time he got a wide open look at a 3 he missed it.

All thunder fans must be devastated now...

Wheres all the hype about harden coming from? I don't watch the thunder often but he is just playing awful in the finals.

I agree though, Lebron did what he had to do at the right time.
