LeBron James’s 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists were not enough to defeat the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals, but can we expect more from?
Should be expect more from him?
Do the Heat need more from him?
Moke Hamilton doesn’t seem to think so. He joined the Fred and Ted Show with Fred David and Ted Johnson on CBS Houston’s 610AM and reflected on Game 1.
Flopping has been one of the most egregious problems ailing the NBA for years—from Vlade Divac taking dives against Shaq to Dwyane Wade falling untouched out of bounds.
Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban has always been outspoken about his dislike of flopping, and now he appears to be putting his money where it counts—in research.
Indiana took Miami to seven games in the Eastern Conference finals but the Heat were able to knock out the Pacers in Game 7. The San Antonio Spurs may have as much talent as the Pacers, but they’re a much better team.
With sturdy defense, unusual discipline and unbelievable performances from its two brightest stars, San Antonio edged Miami, 92-88, to take Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
First of all, and most importantly, Miami has to contend with an efficient, all-around point guard for the first time this postseason. With all due respect to Brandon Jennings (at times a volume shooter), Nate Robinson (a good bench sparkplug but not much more) and George Hill (a really good defender with a relatively limited offensive game), no backcourt player in these playoffs has done more for his team than Tony Parker.
James played all 12 minutes of the third quarter, which admittedly drained him to some extent before the beginning of the pivotal final period.
That was when the San Antonio Spurs overtook the suddenly sloppy Miami Heat and escaped with a 92-88 victory that now has the defending champions in must-win mode.
