2012 NBA Finals G5 Recap

G4 coverage was unnecessary, whoever took a 3 – 1 series lead would inevitably close out at home. Last year the Thunder were my choice to win it all this year, then the season began tailor made for the Heat, and two weeks ago the Spurs were suddenly my predominant choice. Ultimately, I chose the Miami Heat to win this series, and I really didn’t want Durant to have this loss on his resume; alas, what follows are my game notes in reverse order.

  • #nbafinals @miamiheat may not have beaten the world, but I will respect their claim as world champions until USA loses another world tournament
  • #nbafinals G5 final @miamiheat 121 / @okcthunder 106
  • #nbafinals no doubt, Lebron James is the Finals MVP, one more and he historically puts Kobe Bryant in his rear view
  • #nbafinals garbage time resembles the @nba development league showcase
  • #nbafinals Eddy Curry will receive an NBA Championship ring, the shame…
  • No joke, may watch Nashville on @abc, always intrigued by the makings of an original drama
  • ‏@Jaxn_CEO Kevin Durant is a great scorer. Not defender, not passer, not leader. Retweeted by Jorene Rene
  • #nbafinals @miamiheat up twenty six with a minute left in the third, tuning out for a bit, unlike @okcthunder, to be productive
  • #nbafinals new G5 catchphrase, @miamiheat blocks Westbrook!
  • #nbafinals when Bosh shoots imaginary bullets your way after knocking down a three pointer, then takes a foul on the other end #gameover
  • #nbafinals @miamiheat up nineteen with four minutes left in the third, @okcthunder making off-season plans
  • #nbafinals Van Gundy and I are looking to each other wondering about these calls, let them play ball refs
  • #nbafinals last @okcthunder possession ended with Sefalosha to Ibaka for the shot #losing
  • #nbafinals lead down to five, lead up to eleven, @miamiheat lead remains the constant
  • #nbafinals play resumes with a three from Durant, commentators immediately suggest a comeback… #unnecessary
  • #nbafinals G5 half @miamiheat 59 / @okcthunder 49
  • Sneaker commercials are the worst, random numbers that may or may not be statistics, and comical graphics with a catch phrase #gameon
  • #nbafinals we’re finally calling moving screens on Perkins? He almost carried Chalmers out to mid-court on the last possession.
  • @brittquita Mike Miller is already back from the dead, any performance is already astounding for him
  • #nbafinals these James Harden bailouts and flops are doing nothing to counter his memorable backdrop to Kobe’s summer game winner
  • #nbafinals @miamiheat up seventeen following a run of three pointers and excellent defense
  • #nbafinals Bosh is making a bid for best big man in this game, at least for the night, Serge Ibaka had that title locked up until now.
  • #nbafinals @miamiheat Bosh is playing like a big man tonight, Wade is scoring from mid-range, Lebron is playing lock down defense #winners
  • #nbafinals Kevin Durant can’t buy a basket, Lebron James won’t sell him one.
  • #nbafinals G5 Q1 @miamiheat 31 / @okcthunder 26
  • #nbafinals Durant pulled off a Tracey McGrady poster to end the quarter… poor Tracey McGrady, getting backhanded compliments.
  • #nbafinals if Norris Cole makes the post game podium wearing a ridiculous outfit with that haircut, then @tumblr may explode.
  • #nbafinals know how I can tell these players don’t play street ball? We don’t give up on the foul, no and ones, and they wouldn’t even count
  • #nbafinals not proud or ashamed to admit this, early during the season I had suggested Norris Cole would win Rookie of the Year…
  • Just watched a Spanish language @ford commercial with captions during an #nbafinals break, couldn’t be prouder of our progress.
  • Advance tickets are on sale for The Dark Knight Rises, which isn’t in theaters until July 20th, what has the world come to?
  • #nbafinals Chris Bosh is playing like a big third, the lower third, a third nonetheless.
  • #nbafinals why is Kevin Durant guarding Mario Chalmers? Another reason to give Lebron the ultimate respect, he steps up on both ends.
  • #nbafinals Lebron James, coast to coast, and the foul… like it’s already raining @miamiheat confetti
  • @Jaxn_CEO and master flopper James Harden hasn’t even entered yet, the court is about to get damp
  • #nbafinals alley layup for Dwyane Wade, he’s not the same from even a year ago, effective just the same.
  • #nbafinals remember when Mario Chalmers was busted for smoking pot right after he was drafted? Now he’s Super Mario #high
  • #nbafinals we’ve officially come to expect every Shane Battier shot to drop, not unreasonable following his play this series.
  • #nbafinals already see the @okcthunder strategy, get Durant started early, except Durant is not a killer, or a point guard #turnover
  • #nbafinals Kevin Durant leads @okcthunder in talent, Russell Westbrook has lead by example, stop disrespecting that man.
