Game 4

Game 4’s the biggest game of the season for both teams. No predictions here, because both teams have proven they can beat the other one soundly.

For San Antonio, a win Thursday night means a chance to clinch The Finals on their home floor in Game 5. As it stands, Miami has to defeat San Antonio three of four games to win the series.

For Miami, a win means making it a best two of three series, and regaining home court. It also means a chance to push the Spurs to the brink in Game 5 with a win.

Mike Taylor is starting to make some sense. He said the Miami Heat are front runners. He explained once Miami gets a lead, they begin snowballing. He cited Game 2 where Miami got on a couple of runs and exploded late, gathering momentum, capped by the LB James block on Tiago Splitter and Ray Allen three-pointer at the other end. The same occurred in Game 3. A manageable score at halftime got away from the Heat and ended up with an embarrassing 36-point loss. It looked like Miami didn’t give a damn at the end of the game. Meanwhile, the Spurs are pretty much a level-headed team; certainly one of the league’s mentally tough teams.

Who’s going to win? Not sure. Depends on which team shows up for both teams. But I’m starting to think this reminds me a lot of the 2004 The Finals when the Pistons defeated The Lakers. Stephen A. Smith was telling the San Antonio fans to stop celebrating so much after Game 3, because the series was not over. But I also remember him saying after Game 4 in 2004, he was booking a flight back to Philly after Game 5.

I’m not a San Antonio homer. But I’d love for the Spurs to give a big STFU to Mike and Mike, and the ABC/ESPN basketball round table. Those clowns are pulling so hard for the Heat, it’s shameful to call them “national” broadcasts.

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
