Miami is obviously a better than a 32% 3PT shooting team. However, their season average of almost 40% was not built on the 28% 3PT shooter (Bosh) taking 16% of their 3 PT shots. Take Bosh's 4 attempts out, and the rest of the Heat hit 38% from outside, almost right at their season average.
Meanwhile, Spurs hit only 30% - with many misses being uncontested. A big part of that was Leonard (38%) & Neal (36%) combining for just 1 of 9 - something that should improve as series commences.Very encouraging going forward.

Boris Diaw isn't long? His wingspan is 6'11 (just an inch shorter than Lebron's). He's not a shotblocker and he's not a condor like Kawhi Leonard, but he's also got decent length for 6'8 - not alligator arms like Bonner.

Didn't McGrady get the money that would have gone to Duncan? I don't recall that they had the cap space to sign Hill, Duncan, & TMAC.

Duncan's been so good for so long, that if you label him a PF, and you only say he's "one of the best" - it's an insult.

@bertfan Better players argument is bunk. Younger & more talented? Sure.
But old teams win championships. This happens time and time and time again.

@sasamoto On the flip side, they also gave up 16 ORB despite being the best DRB team in the league
@anonymous12345 @OKCZombies Didn't Presti do that already? i.e. PJ.
@ThunderBelize @ironm8 @bertfan Harden shot 75% too. Durant went for 30+ on just 17 shots.
Great players, but like Parker, had better statistical games than usual.
"Theory: Possibly the reason the Spurs give up the fewest free throws in the league is because they aren’t called for the fouls they commit. I know that sounds sour, but sheesh, they get away with a whole lot of contact."
The NBA just chooses not to call fouls on them because they love small market teams in the finals? Contrary to popular belief, officials can't see every bit of contact that takes place on the floor, and then just choose which to call. The Spurs have consistently had good defensive positioning & show their hands, which is why they consistently get called for less fouls than other teams. They still get away with some, but not any more than anybody else (seriously, Perk relies on a lot of no-calls to get his regular minutes).
Anyhow, once taking hack-a-splitter into account, Thunder went +11 from the stripe ON THE ROAD, can't ask for more than that from zebras.
rahathuq The conflict of interest is inherently in the NBA running a team. That the "owners" of the dealing team (which was crap) talking Stern into nixing it - that could happen at any organization.
