Game 87 Thread: PHI @ MIA - Round 1, Game 5

lets go sixers!

I hope this isn't the last one. Have to find a way to bring it back home. Fingers crossed. Prayers have been said. Wishing begins.

All right, feeling pretty good about this. I like the Sixers by one on a last second shot by AI9 over LeBran for the win.

Have a hunch that it might be the Heat that jumps out to the early lead. But after that, who knows?

I'm just glad we're still watching Sixers basketball. House money.

Come on you guys!

To be honest i'm not an optimist tonight. I expect a relatively easy win for the Heat.

That being said i don't think the Sixers will give up at all. I'm hoping for an exciting end of the season and whi knows maybe they can pull of a miracle.

should i watch the game on TNT or comcast sports network?

Well comcast includes eric snow, so unless you're planning on watching the game with no sound...

I'm going with Zumoff one last time.

going with zumoff also, eric snow is ok, ill deal with him for at-least one more time

So of the three series being played tonight, which is mostly likely to end?

RIP San Antonio, Memphis owns you!

Unfortunately the Sixers-heat one :(.

I'm with you guys! Straight from Switzerland ... it's 1AM over here. Leggo!

1 AM in Macedonia as well. Bit ill be here throughout :)

Why is charles such a dick? Zoo it is.

Alright. 48 minutes of hell. Give it to 'em.

Doug should've stuck w/ the Easter blazer.

And Hawes loses the tip to the corpse starting at center for Miami. Let's go.

Jrue switched onto LB. Brand comes w/ the double and LeBron travels, which is the right call.

Wade is on Jrue right from the opening tip, wow.

Jodie for three over the corpse that starts at PG for Miami.

did they start game 4 with Lebron running offense?

Jodie with the long two. 5-0 sixers.

lol heat fans, not even showing up on time with courtside seats.

Fuck, Wade is so good at blocking shots.

Z w/ three o-boards, luckily the last was offensive goaltending.

Great hustle by Jrue after turning it over.


eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:15

Ugh, Jrue had Jodie for 3 there but turned it over trying to get it to EB. He redeems himself on other end.

EB! Good start for the 4th game of series.

that's two fouls that they didn't call on wade. that's cool.

AI9 lob dunk from Jrue. Nice.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:16

Ha, backdoor, get some of that LBJ!

Nice hands, Bibby. LeBron overpassing.

Great start folks, great start. Brand and Meeks hitting it early.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:17

YEAH! Good backdoor pass from Spenca....

Tech on Bosh. Love it. Losing their cool already. Keep the pedal down.


13-4. Tech called on Bosh, will shoot after the TO.

I expect Anthony to come in after this timeout, possibly Chalmers too.

Miami showing their bitchiness early.

Honest question, should we stick with our starters and push back thad's first rotation?

Yeah. Well, they should stay big, don't care if it's the starters or not.

Phil reply to Jason on Apr 27 at 19:19

Would say yes. He hasn't played very well the last games because of Anthony's presence.

What a start. I bet Anthony and Chalmers might be thrown in now.

WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT GO SIXERS!!!!!!!! we're in it man, we just need to play good D, stay poised & execute, but guys, we seem to have a bright future, love the playoff experience are young guys are getting right now, and if we can add to our front court in the future, we'll be up there with the big boys, Brian you may have to come up with a new name, OptimisticFan lol Go SIXERSSS

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:20

LeBron's eggs are still raw apparently...

Yup, Anthony and Chalmers in, Sixers stay big. Let's see how it works.

Of course Hawes is over easy.

Let LBJ shoot those contested threes all day.

Great pass from Payton to Meeks.

Peyton's QB rating is through the roof right now.

EB. Money.

steve kerr slobbering over hawes.

Fucking bullshit call.

if chalmers/bibby hit their 3s i don't think sixers can win. Pretty much my biggest worry. I know the big 3 will do well, if chalmers/bibby are on it will be tough.

Great job on that break, Jrue.

Way too attack the body Jrue. Wonderful.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:24

Ohhh, yes, Jrue way to shield Wade with your body.

That's a foul on Wade on the Jrue layup.

I think Iguodala just picked up his second. Shit.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Apr 27 at 19:26

so agree.

Is that two on Dre? DAMNIT

turner time to show game 4 was no fluke

ET going to have to come up big.

good news is, his Offense is probably better than Iggy at this point lol.

Chalmers has had about 10 wide open looks from three. Not sure what you do to clean that up.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Apr 27 at 19:28

They look to be sagging just a little too far off on the weak side, cheating towards the lane when there are enough defenders to close things off already. Just stay a little closer to home and then worry about crashing the boards.

Can't give Chalmers those wide open 3s.

Damn those were 2 good looks for Meeks, failed to knock either down.

Brand is unconscious. Again great job getting him going early.

Iggy with two. God damn.

Turner in for Iggy, gotta love that. Does well with the O-board. Much-needed timeout there.

I don't know if it's design, but that's poor defense by Jodie. I don't think he supposed to leave Chalmers that open when four other guys are corralling Wade. His help wasn't even any good, kind of in no man's land.

Yeah, it was a rotation don't know if he didn't recognize that Chalmers was his responsibility there. They're all so focused on keeping MIA out of the lane.

eddies' heady's reply to Rich on Apr 27 at 19:30

Yep just said the same thing in different words above.

heh, noob question.

A zone wouldn't work because Lebron/Wade are just too good at penetrating?

Also wouldn't work because of rebounding I guess.

lol, i don't know , call me crazy, but have you guys ever entertained the thought that Hawes, is actually good? I mean he was the 10th overall pick in his draft class, maybe he was just not in shape going into the season, he was injured and all at the beginning , just saying idk what i think of hawes, YET


nope. he's terrible.

Was anyone else watching the TNT feed and dying at the Lou-Will breakfast menu comment?

I loved hawes as Over-Easy.

Thad in. This small lineup needs to contend.

Yep, can't go small against this lineup. We've been killed all series long w/ this matchup.

Fuck, come on Lou you have to hit that.

and again. God damnit.

ugly basketball

Ugly favors us.

Fuck, this second unit is a disaster offensively. Lou misses again. Turner's defense/rebounding has been the only positive.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:34

Dammit, just chaotic on offense now. Doug has to play the crap out of Jrue tonight doesn't he?

Please don't help/cheat off James Jones....please.

Got lucky there, Thad. But I'll take it.

At last Young thank God.

Meeks is defending very poorly.

No play-calls for Turner? James Jones is no Iguodala on the defensive end.

Thad, please show up.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:36

I will be DA..! Hot start, cold fizzle. Shoot....

PHI 23, MIA 27 after one.

The first half of games 1, 3 and 4 was condensed into the first quarter tonight. Need to settle down now, scrap this small lineup when Anthony is in the game, and get the lead back in the second.

Joel Anthony now +69 in the series

i'm fine with Chalmers taking more shots.

Come on Lou

15-3 run for Miami after Iguodala went out. That first foul they called on him was complete bullshit.

We cannot win this game being outscored from the bench. Thad, Evan, Lou, come on now.

Love what Evan's bringing to the floor. Except he needs to be aggressive offensively as well.

Lou and Meeks gotta do much better staying with the shooters. So many wide open looks, they're bound to hit a few.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:40

2nd quarters have not been kind to us

Brand needs to be back in this game very early.

Great D by Thad on Bosh there. Bosh is a weak bitch.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Apr 27 at 19:42

Jrue needs to come back too.

Good job, Young can guard Bosh once in a while.

Eat it, Chalmers.

Let's attack Eddie house?

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:42

Like the idea Turner, but not that early in that moment.

Fuck me. That's four really easy looks they've missed. At least four.

c'mon ET.

Not a good game for battie.

Turner's cleaning the glass and his defense looks world's better.

Keep them off the fucking o-boards, damnit.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:44

Doug meet Jrue. Play him!

Fuck Lou he's been fucking terrible tonight on both ends.

Hope good Lou shows for the second half, because this has been pitiful Lou.

way to be useless Hawes. Good Effort!

Yep, he was closest to that ball, never even thought about getting on the floor for it. Splendid.

Come on Spencer attack the fucking ball that's your board. And Lou don't be so careless we can't waste possessions .

6 O-boards for the Heat already. Unacceptable...

Turner is owning the glass.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:48

Ugh, Thad should have drew the contact there. Just shied away from Bosh.

that should be 3 fouls on wade now.

great play Jrue/Evan

They just called Iguodala for his third on another fucking bullshit fucking call. God damnit.

If anyone wants a dynamite Post idea, break down every "foul" that was called on iguodala this series.

Hmmn, I think I can just watch those w/ mysynergy if my subscription hasn't run out. I'll put it on my list.

Not a reach-in Iggy WTF

Pathetic refs.


ET behind the back to Thad for the dunk, and then Turner gets an offensive foul on LBJ!!!

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:50

Punk ass LeBron.


eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:51

Dammit, Doug just told the guys not to lose sight of Jones/Chalmers.

Jrue w/ the spin, NIFTY!

Even in my wildest dreams I never thought Evan could do such a job on LeBron.

What a play by JRUE!

wow jrue is playing confident as hell

That was a superstar play by Jrue.

jkay reply to Brian on Apr 27 at 19:55


Stop calling touch fouls on Iguodala refs!!

WOW, the spin move from Jrue!

Turner has been fantastic-on defense, on the boards, and some nice passing

That foul was on the ground.

wade kicked that, no?

Yup, off Wade's foot. Good fucking call.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:57

Jrue pickpocketing Wade. heh

C'mon Hawes, what the hell is that.

Wow, Brand just bulled his way to the hoop. Great move.

nice reset......

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:58

Anthony just can't handle EB. Need to keep EB in when Anthony is in.

Jrue shot out of a cannon, gets to the line. Great job.

miami fans complaining about the refs is awesome.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 19:59

Tie game, come on guys just close strong here please.

Where was the foul there?

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:00

Ha! LBJ whining to the ref on that Jrue foul "why you call that shit dead, man?"

Great strip by ET.

That was a pretty, pretty play. Great pass by Payton.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:00

Damn SPencaaa....just a nice look bounce pass.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:01

aaannnnd dammit Hawes you feel my wrath with that weak shit and turns into a CHalmers 3. Five point damn swing. geez

And then spence throws up another sissy hook to remind me how much I hate him.

They just need to stay close going into the half with this lineup out there.

instead of "over easy", lou should have dubbed hawes "soft boiled egg"

Fiber one imo.

ET beats the shot clock. Good work.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:05

ET just beasting on the boards.

could someone tell me why lou is in?

Damnit. Damnit. Damnit. Missed layup on one end, two offensive boards on the other. Can't have sequences like that.


God damn Lou trying the And1 again ugh

turner's got his big boy underpants on tonight

Did anyone in the world not know Lou was going to heave that three to get the two-for-one?

He's now 1/6. Need him to wake up in the second half.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Apr 27 at 20:09

Doug told him to from the sideline.

Yeah, he didn't need to heave the three to get the two-for-one, though. Ugh. Whatever. Just win this fucking game, I don't care how you do it.

Meeks for Lou, why didn't this happen minutes ago? Anyway, still just need to stay close.

Not sure where this consistent version of ET came from by the way, but hope he sticks around.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:08

No open 3's here on this last Heat possession please.

I woould like to take a moment to tip my hat to Elton fuckin' Brand

please get the stop here.

PHI 42, MIA 45 at the half.

More level performance in the second quarter. The defense looks very good tonight. Need to contest the threes Jones and Chalmers are getting and need to keep them off the offensive glass. Thought Turner played very well and Jrue is just itching to take the game over.

Brand = Awesome. By the way.

Elton Brand is a man possessed. This is not just veteran leadership, this is great stuff.

Turner looking like a frickin #2 pick tonight.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:11

Only gave up 3 pts in the last 4+ min on the scoreboard. Not bad considering the lineups out there.

Playing type of game that may end up in the 80's, think that works in our favor.

We're getting outrebounded 27-20 on the boards. ET has 8 of our boards lol.

Hawes, 12 minutes, 0/2 from the floor, 0 rebounds. He did have a couple nice passes, but that's not really enough from your center. Battie was probably worse when he was in there.

I pray Miami runs their starting lineup out there at the beginning of the third.

Phil reply to Jason on Apr 27 at 20:13

Hell, he even boxed out James beautifully on one of the last ones!

bron has just 3 points on six shots. figure he will come out after the half looking for his. was surprised to see him guarding lou that much

Turner was great in that half on defense/on the boards.

It would be huge if he could give us something on offense, huge mismatch in his favor

i'll take LBJ with 3 pts on 1/6 shooting over an unsustainable mario chambers hitting 44% from beyond the arc.

Need everyone to play a great second half. Not impossible, but can't have that type of performance from Lou/Dre/Thad/Jodie. All four of them need to play better, in Iguodala's case just stay on the floor.

I'm wondering when Collins goes back to the smaller-than-small lineup. We sort of saw it for 22 seconds there at the end, but I want to see it for a couple a decent run. Brand, Iguodala, Turner, Lou (or Meeks) and Jrue.

agree, Hawes has been better than Battie, despite 0 points and 0 boards.

Hope Good Lou shows up in the second half. Meeks needs to make shots if he's on the floor. Both need to stay with the shooters better.

Jrue/Evan/Thad/Lou/Iggy: One of these guys has to help with the scoring, Brand can't do it all alone. Chalmers has outscored our entire bench, that is just not gonna get it done.

Yes I sure hope Miami puts their starters in to start the 3rd and we can make a run on them again.

Alright, let's fucking go. Come out strong and maintain the energy for 24 more minutes.

Miami didn't go w/ their starters.


Fuck you, Hawes.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:29

Don't need that shot from you Spencer.

I hope EB chews up anthony.

Drive and kick by AI9. JODIE THREE!!!

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:30


eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:31

Ugh, we just can't lose this one b/c of Chalmers can we?

AI9 w/ the jumper (first he's taken)

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:32

Bad effing call. Meeks was not out of bounds there. SHIT


elton gettin unconscious

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:32

EB! Earn that money, man!

Yeah, Jrue!

Sheesh, Bosh on fire here from midrange.

Great drive by Jrue

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:33

Jrue! Show a mean streak dammit!

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:34

Ugh, everytime we tie it up they hit a three.

what is james saying?

eddies' heady's reply to jaypiddler on Apr 27 at 20:34

Back it up w/ a stop. back it up w/ a stop

thx mang

Yeah I thought it was "Back the fuck up" as he first said it to Spolestra - which made no sense to me.

Wtf is Bosh complaining about. That's a GREAT call.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:36

I despise it when we are unbelievably hot yet the other team is too. You'd think the odds would fall our way for once and they'd miss while we are unsustainably making them.

And we can't even say the Heat are getting whistles.

Get a hoop out of this timeout, please.

this is a really good game. THATS ALL IM ASKING FOR!!

hahahaha go sixers!!

Has anyone else noticed that Hawes has never once seen Jodie wide open? Basically a blind-spot.

OK, fresh shot clock, get something better than that.

Hit the freebies. Thought Iguodala was going to have Jodie for a corner three there, that's what he was looking for, but Jodie vacated the corner.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:40

Jodie was cheating way too far off on Chalmers but got lucky he missed another one. He doesn't need to do that when he's on the weakside.

Hopefully Anthony's extra rotation will cause him to struggle vs thad rest of game.

one thing never changes - iggy can't make 2 FTs

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:41

Ugh, Jodie gives Thad a nice pass right at the hoop and Thad passes it 16 ft back out to EB and end up w/ a Dre J. ugh

whoa no fouls?

E Snow says that was clean by Iggy.

Crazy how quiet the whistles are for the home team tonight. I'll take it.

There has to be several techs coming here.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:43

Heh, Jrue pickpocketing LeBitch. hahah...

Dre dunk!@ Spo tech....love it....

andre even put his hand in the air to take that last one

Hey guys, meeks has been wide open for 3 a lot.

Alright, let's fucking go.

I feel so bad for LeBron, he never gets any calls.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:44

Crucial time here coming out of this timeout. After that tech on no favorable whistles they're going to be fired up. We HAVE to match it.

Do like Justin Timberlake, & cry me a motherluvin river,

someone get LaB*tch james some 2 ply tissues

Zumoff with the "world's smallest violin for the Heat. Lebron ALWAYS gets the calls" comment. Great stuff.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:47

Damn. Chalmers again. EVerytime we get a lead. sheesh

Don't like that Iguodala three one bit. Not one single bit.

c'mon iggy...

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:48

NO matter how you spin it, we're losing to Chalmers. Single-handedly.

Is Howard on Thad?

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:49

COme on, cut it down in this last two minutes. Finish.

Atta boy, AI9.

Iggy with good vision there and owning Jones again. Jones is another guy close to a tech.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:51

Wow, best defense you could play on LBJ and he cans a highly contested three. geez

How 'bout a fucking foul on that Lou shot?

Don't give the foul, you're getting the ball back.

Get a bucket here to close the quarter.

I'll really miss Lou going 1 on 4 for the 2 for 1 every game.

PHI 67, MIA 72 after three.

OK, 12 minutes. How badly do you want it? Miami is basically beating them shooting nothing but jumpers, I say make them keep doing that.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:52

Thank goodness that last shot by Dre fell. Down 5. Have to come out with unmatched energy and effort to get the lead back early and not be climbing up the hill all quarter. That or not deciding to turn it on later in the quarter.

Lou shouldn't play a minute in the fourth.

ET sat the whole 3rd.

Still feel pretty good.

Damn, the team is doing as well as it could (apart from one lapse by Lou on the boards and Hawes a couple times) and down 5.

try putting Turner in, LeBron got no change from him in the 2nd Q.

small lineup

No Jrue to start the fourth. EB forces the contact, to the line for a pair.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:56

EB drawing contact. to the line early. nice.

Would've preferred a harder foul. Iguodala got burned on that screen, Wade crossed over and didn't use it. I don't think he can cover Wade w/ that knee. Can't change direction quickly enough.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:58

Man, Doug's got to play Jrue the rest of the way here, no? There may not be a Friday.

Get Jrue back in to guard Wade, and stop fucking leaving James Jones for no reason. That was just stupid and lazy.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 20:59

Dammit Evan, how were you faked out by that pass attempt. Thee was no one for Wade to pass it to down there. ugh

oh yah, lou can handle the double teams.

Fuck, Lou.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:01

Alright, that's three early fouls on them. Get them in the penalty. Come on!

FREE THROWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:01

Alright, that's three early fouls on them. Get them in the penalty. Come on!

we won't hit them anyways.

Man, here come the whistles for the Heat.

damn missed free throws. fuck!

I think Thad or Jrue has to get hot in order for us to win.

That's four on the Sixers. This is going to be a parade to the line for Miami.

Let the parade begin.

Did they get an offensive board and then Wade hit a three? What happened?

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Apr 27 at 21:10

Yep. 50/50 loose ball. think LBJ got it and hit Wade for three.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:07

Where the eff is Jrue? And meeks for that matter?

4 missed freebies already this quarter.

our FT% is = to Chalmers 3pt%

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:09

MAKE YOUR FRIGGIN FREE THROWS! Even when we get a free extra one we can't make them.....arrggghhhhhh.......

Shut the fuck up Bosh, you pussy.

Catch fire, Thad.

Grab that fucking rebound.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:11

COme on! We're still right in this game!!!!

Why the fuck isn't Jrue on Wade?

Goaltend on Anthony, not called.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:13

Does he bring Meeks back for some shooting? I mean, we're down you know.

I can't be beating myself up all summer asking how in the hell did we lose to Mario friggin' Chalmers. Mario Chalmers? No way...

In the first four games they didn't hit those shots. They were damned if they did and damned if they didn't when it came to protecting the lane and keeping LBJ and Wade shooting jumpers.

I really don't understand why we are doubling Lebron.

the +/- on the espn box score indicates that our bench is getting killed. to me it just looks like d wade is taking over

OK, get a stop now.

god damnit, there's a chance Wade and LBJ both get triple doubles, i really don't want to hear the circlejerk about this.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:17

Down to 6 again. Stops please.

Nice job, Thad.

Come on. STOPS!

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:18

WTF Evan? come on....

Young!! down to 4. let's go

Love the Turner drives - second one looked like a foul.

Down to 4 somehow here.

Shooting. Let's go Jrue, hit both of them.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:19

WHy did DRe try that tough pass? he should have shot it...
EVan you were bailed out. whew

Two-point game. Let's fucking go.

no quit in our guys, scrappy as fuck

i am so proud of these guys right now

Same here. Can't believe what i'm seeing.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:21

Please. win. this. game.

It's right there, guys.

No ref Bullshit either.

Really liking Thad in instead of Lou for the endgame.

LeBitch wasn't even trying to shoot that.

woulda been penalty anyways.

Yeah, I know.

Yeah AI9!

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:24


And one there on LBJ - come on.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:25

AW, come oon BULLSHIT CALL and late whistle too. getdafukoutahere......


COME ON!!! Tie it up.


eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:27

SHit Evan. couldn't have gotten a cleaner better look.....ugh, ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh.....

just get a stop please, pretty please!!!!!

Come on, get the stop. Get the stop right now.

I bet Spoelstra takes Anthony out of the game for this offensive possession. Puts another shooter in to stop that trap we're running at Wade.

Back to back playoff games and the #2 pick is getting serious run, while defending the best player in the game. Unbelievable.

Please get a stop and a basket, bring it home for a game 6!


Shit, got the stop and Bosh gets the offensive rebound. Tech on Wade. Gotta hit it.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:29

MF me! A damn o-board.........just box the damn hell out please

What? a tech!!!! I'll take it

Come on, let's fucking go God Damnit.


Get this fucking stop.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:31

DRE J!!!! One stop basketball gods please.

Of course Joel hits both, of course.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:32

Good hard foul by Jodie to prevent the basket.

And ANthony makes both, typical. The one guy we'd want shooting and he cans both. WIsh our guys would have made just one more, just one more darn free throw tonight. mang.........................

Charlie H on Apr 27 at 21:33

I've been saying it all year - I believe Doug. They're gonna win this game. 16 seconds (+5 mins) left.


Guys, I think Iguodala is taking this three, if they go for three.

heh, the philly beat writers are salivating.


eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:34

Finger crossed.


Lets be fair. His previous jumpers were pretty darn clutch (if ill-advised).

Where is the drive and kick there Iggy? Ton of shooters out there.

WHY that shot, either a layup or a 3 -- just stupid.

eddies' heady's on Apr 27 at 21:35

So, they wanted Dre to take a quick two? Couldn't get Meeks a look at a three? or Jrue? oh well....

pretty much, the worst possible way for this season to end.

I fully expect Iggy to be crucified by philly fans for that shot.

No, the worst possible way is losing by 20 and quitting in the process.

It's nice to hear the props from Kerr and the TNT guys for how hard this team fought.

Very true, i overreacted.

Charlie H on Apr 27 at 21:36

need a quick 2

Need the three here.

that was CLASSLESS by wade at the end

ugh fuck life

we'll always have easter, 2010-11 sixers. thanks for that

not sure how you can find fault with that shot except that it did not go in.

PHI 91, MIA 97 Game. Series. Season over.

So fucking proud of those guys, they have nothing to hang their heads about.

There will be other threads for this but thanks for the effort you put in here. Great game threads and since I found this site last year (right before the lottery), there is no other I frequent. Great work.

worst play by Iguodala EVER. WHY THE HELL DO U GO FOR A LONG OFF BALANCE 2 WHEN U NEED 3!!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

And classless move by Wade

Good game and a great season. Oo yeah, fuck you Wade for that last basket.

classy move wade.

Thank you Sixers for an awesome season. Way to go head to head with these guys and look great in the process.

Can't wait to get my season tickets and root for these guys hard next year.

It looks like Jrue holiday has snot on his finger in the game thread picture up top.

Well, it was fun guys. Enjoyed a hell of a year. These game threads are the fucking best and should be award winning.

Still painful as heck though. Just hurts like mad the way this game ended up.

My sleep patterns will be broken starting tonight saying, "Chalmers?" and continue through the summer til I find other things to moan and bitch about whether that be Stefanski, the next draft pick, or whatever....

Still hell of a year though and that can't go without saying multiple, many times. Enjoyed it!! Thoroughly!

Game threads are great, I can't do them at this stage of the game. I don't have any coherent thoughts.

Great season guys. It has been a pleasure to watch. Great season here at DF as well. Thanks Brian and all the contributors. October can't come back round soon enough.

Proud as hell of my team, boys.

Great season.

really coulda had that one. our guys went down fightin, got to love that.

must say, despite winning the series in 5, i am not that impressed by the heat. devastating in transition, but those traps stifled their half court game at the end. cant see them getting to the finals.

Awesome year. Proud to be a fan of this team, proud that others have the passion that people have here.

Here here

Well done boys - what a great bounce back season. A pat on the back for Doug as well for getting these guys to believe in themselves.

Can't wait for next season!

Guys good season, ups & the downs, highs & Lows, nice to share the moments with true Sixerz Fans! A post season of experience for the young fellas, think we've seen a LOT of growth throughout the season, Jrue, Thad, Iguodala, Lou, Even Evan shown some spine in this series! i think us sixers fan have a Lot to look forward to!Let's see what moves/additions the sixers make, if any. Till next season, GO PHILLIES!

Thanks 76ers. It's been fun. If there was any 'good' way to end the season, that was it. It's been fun.
all 86 games.

Great season. I don't know how things could have been any better honestly.

Oh, and thanks to the authors... Brian and the rest of he contributors... and the commenters as well.

Nice to see Brand and Dre step up big throughout the final game. Also of course the refs gave miami every call down the end except for the technical, but what else do you expect. Appreciate you guys keeping us updated on everything, hope next season gets here soon.

hate to relay this but Brian Windhorst(heat beat writer), "I have no insight on this but with some of the things Doug Collins has said in last 5 days, I'm not sure he's coming back. My Coach of Year"
i hope he is wrong, i dont see why doug would retire

nvm he just shot down a question asking if he would reitre

well collins just bit someone's head off for asking a question like that

Great game by our beloved Sixers. I can't put in words how proud I am of this young team. There is absolutely nothing for the 6ers to feel bad about after this game because they gave everything they got and looked great doing it. Since this is my first post on this blog (by the way the greatest for everything Sixer-related) I wanted to give a shout-out to Brian and all the other passionate Sixers fans for creating such great game-threads.

Season over.

What a great effort tonight. That will be a good memory of this season. Best season in a long while.

Thanks to everyone who's been contributing here through the season it's been great. Brian, Statman, GoSixers especially for the posts that give us much to talk about. Woulda loved to make it through another game thread, team gave everything but it wasn't to be.

Anyone else find it interesting that Lou wasn't on the court for the endgame - even after his game 4 heroics. Kudos to Doug there.

will be rooting for the celtics. lost a lot of respect for the heat tonight.
