Heat vs. Spurs: 3 Burning Thoughts From Game 2

Your first thoughts after the Miami Heat won Game 2?

Justen: Not surprised at all. This team is best with their backs against the walls. Just an awesome game.

 Kris: This was the Heat team we expected. Now, they just have to find a way to win 2 out of 3 in San Antonio.

 Ehsan: Just what I expected. The Heat have always responded well with their backs against the wall. What I am concerned about now is an emotional/psychological hangover from this game going into Game 3. Hopefully, this team does not underestimate the Spurs after blowing them out of the water.


First reactions to LeBron’s block on Tiago Splitter?

Justen: Honestly, I just screamed. Don’t forget about Ray Allen’s three after that which made it 50 times better!

 Kris: I simply said “oooooooooh”. That block was phenomenal. If there was ever a sequence to explain why he won MVP again, it was that one. The block, an assist, then a steal, and a dunk all within a minute.

 Ehsan: I jumped out of my seat and screamed. That was an amazing block, but I cannot believe how Splitter did not see that coming. I sure did.


The most surprising thing about Game 2?

Justen: The most surprising thing is the 6 turnovers the Heat had. That’s ridiculously impressive, especially against San Antonio’s stout defense.

 Kris: The Heat still haven’t found a way to stick close to Danny Green. He hit 4 threes in Game 1, and came back with 5 more in Game 2 and they ALL were wide open.

 Ehsan: Tim Duncan’s horrible no good day. He shot 3-13 from the field and it seemed to allow Birdman into his head, as the two were seen having a couple of “friendly” chats during plays. The Heat will have an easy time with the Spurs if Duncan continues to struggle, but I think Game 2 will end up being an anomaly. Duncan is too good to shoot that poorly again.
