    Huge night by Melo...again.

    I wonder where all the critics have gone. They're certainly not there when Melo is dropping 40 and single-handedly keeping NY in the game.

    Lebron completely shut down Melo in the 4th. Miami end up with the win.

    Don't worry I'm here: When Melo isn't fluking deep 3s like against Chicago he's useless in late-game situations.

    Actually, it was pretty good tactics. Lebron was kept off Melo until the 4th to save his energy. Melo looked shattered in the end playing too much minutes and forced too many shots.

    Also, that's hugely unfair. Melo has been amazing these past few games and is the only reason NY has been in these games (and this game). He dropped 42 this game... on 14/27 shooting.

    Yea guess I'm playing devil's advocate more than anything. The whole team just started taking really bad shots in the last five minutes, and Wade is one of the best late-game players in the league.

    Yeah, Wade was sick in the last final minutes, but credit to Lebron too. He played hardcore defense and managed to score a few.

    And Bosh had a huge rebounding game. I genuinely think he's the Heat's most important player.

    Is this serious ? So innacurate, look at this for starters http://www.82games.com/1112/CSORT11.HTM and also

    Among players that have taken at least 20 field goal attempts in game-tying or game-winning situations in the last 15 seconds of the 4th quarter or overtime in the past 10 years, Anthony ranks first in field-goal percentage (46.2), according to the Elias Sports Bureau. He has made 24 of 52.

    His 24 field goals are second to Kobe Bryant's 26. But Bryant is shooting 30.2 percent in 'clutch' situations (26-86).

    as a neutral I think I might say it might have been good to see some fresh legs on the Celtics team tbh. Both are wayyyy past what they used to be and don't think can hold it anymore.
