Refs always favor the hometeam, and especially with Lebron and Wade. Their style forces the issue. It is a bit ridiculous how fast Miami got into the bonus every quarter.
I'm a Pacers fan and I can't make excuses for them. They didn't hit their free throws. They went 3-8 from the line in the fourth and I remember Hill and Granger missing two wide open threes.
Lebron credited Miami's defense, and while they forced a few turnovers, the Pacers missed wide open shots. Any team with a strong interior presence to compliment guard scoring will have a great chance against the Heat. They're soft inside, they're by no means a complete team.
Also, **** David Stern. He says he would have fined Vogel more than $15K but says "we should give out oscars instead of MVPs" during his anti-flopping rant. Vogel was right.

There is a difference between having websites that covers specific areas of the country's sport teams in all sports and having a website that covers just one team. That is posted right on the front of the NBA section.
