NBA Finals : Game 4

Heat Beat Mavs With Use Of That Old Pat Riley Stuff

Miami 98 Dallas 74

The Miami Heat put the heat on the Dallas Mavericks and the Mavs wilted to tie the series at 2 all. The Florida dribblers totally dominated the game defensively , offensively and psychologically . Unbelievable . ' The Heat were 6 mins. from being down 3-0 in this series and now theare tied and they certainly have the upperhand going into game 5 ' one sports commentator said .You can be sure game 5 will be a war .
Dallas' coach Avery Johnson told the press that the Mavs should stop complaining and ' start playing playground type basketball ' . It's funny . NBA coaches normally require their players ' to lose those playground stuff ' when they are in the pros. Johnson wants the Mavs to do it the way it's done at NY Ruckers . The next thing you know the Mavs are playing like they are in A One tour with Jason Terry as Skip To My Lou .
Coach , why not the Harlem Globetrotters ?
With the Mavs as the whipping boys, Nationals !

The Heat bench was credited with the resurgence of the team in the last 2 games. In this game , James Posey was singled out for his fine game. Posey had 13 pts. in previous games combined but had 15 pts. in this game alone . His defensive job on Dirk Nowitzki was excellent.
' The Heat players knocked Dirk around and he folded ' observed ESPN Game Night. Shaq sent him to the floor twice . Haslem , Anderson and Posey took turns limiting Dirk to a dismal shooting percentage.
NBA TV refers to this as the start of real playoff basketball . One sportswriter noted a developing bad blood between the 2 teams.
You can blame Mavs owner , Mark Cuban , for the sudden change in the nature of the playoff. A day before , he appeared in the Late Night Show with David Letterman and said 'I really got involved to outlaw all the handchecking and all the beating up of guys on the perimeter, so now the game's gotten a lot smoother, so you've got superstars like Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, Dirk Nowitzki who can take the ball to the hoop without all of that old Knicks , that old Pat Riley stuff, where they'd just beat up on people '.
I guess coach Riley told his players to show Cuban samplings of that old Pat Riley stuff.

And that old Pat Riley stuff is still alive in the NBA.

After all , it's playoff time , right Mark !


Give 'em more of that old Riley stuff !

Yeah, those old Pat Riley stuff that seem to be working extremely well for Miami. I just love how the officials are turning a blind eye to these old Pat Riley stuff. Seriously.

They say every action has an equal and opposite reaction well....
Action: Mark Cuban goes on Letterman and starts mocking Riley
Reaction: Miami busts out some "Rileyball" on the Mavs and blew them out of the water.
Momentum has swung and stackhouse suspended from game 5 is going to hurt the Mav's BIG!!(I don't think the suspension was warranted)
PS: Thanx for the link on the site i added you to mine as well but the link to my blog is wrong i geuss u will get around to it at some point. :)

It's blatant fouls that they're doning to Dirk . The refs need to open their eyes.

The real Dirk Nowitzki must stand up .There's no room for a soft man in the Finals. Don't turn into a pumpkin again says Michael M.

Today is decision day .The team who will win 3 games first will have tremendous advantage.I don't think Avery's transferring the Mavs to a faraway place will matter .They are all f@#$d up !

Replying to your response, Coach...it seemed that the black and white shirts are still completely blind. What a show that was (Game 5). I can't believe NBA is slowly morphing to be WWE.
