Will the Block on Tiago Splitter by Lebron James be Indicative of The Heat’s performance for the rest of this series? I doubt it. However one can only hope. I don’t see this series going all 7. My pick is Heat in 6.
MIAMI — Mario Chalmers drew the foul, made the basket and walked over to LeBron James with something to say.
“I felt like we had them on the ropes at the time,” the Miami Heat point guard said of his third-quarter and-one. “I told him, ‘Let’s go for the kill.’ He said, ‘I’m with you.’
“My mindset was just do what I can for the team and go from there.”
There was plenty to like for the Heat on Sunday in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, when they dispatched the San Antonio Spurs 103-84 to even the series. Every player saw the floor for at least five minutes, and the Big 3 of James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh played well.
But the most encouraging signs came from Chalmers, who scored a game-high 19 points. The 27-year-old more than doubled his production from Game 1, when he had just eight points. Chalmers was 6-for-12 from the field, attacking the basket more than he typically does.
