Miami Heat come up short as Celtics bounce back to avoid 0-3 hole »

Dwyane Wade had 23 points and seven rebounds and Joel Anthony added a double-double (12 points, 11 rebounds) but the Heat fell to the Celtics 97-81 in Game 3 Saturday night. LeBron James scored 15 points, and Mario Chalmers came off the bench for 17 points. This was a game begging for LBJ’s dominance, but he chose to lurk beneath the surface and serve primarily as a defensive specialist and distributor. The series continues Monday night in Boston.

    LBJ needs to do MORE. You know the Heat needs more firepower from LBJ. He just didn’t bring it in this game. Got to wake up Lebron. :evil:

    I just need to know why lebron decides to switch his game up when what hes been doing allowed them to win games. Makes no sense why are you standing in the corner chillin when you should be commanding the ball and driving like the other two games. Obviously DWade cant retaliate on the booing like lebron can. Lebron you gotta play like a lion or you gonna do a repeat of last year and your fans are gonna have a hard time defending you this year.

    If they win the next game it’ll boost up their confidence then the next game will be at home. Now since they is such a big difference between home games and away games, they should be able to finish them off by game 5.

    Can’t blame all to LeBron. LeBron is in his all-around game. James did his usual job putting up significant numbers (scoring, defending, playmaking, name it..). If you would look at the series it’s Beantown’s Big 3 vs. Heat’s Big 3. James and Wade did their load of scoring, heat got their squeeze of scoring to their bench while Bosh only got 6? The bench did bail Bosh here in this game but still the Heat need production from the their Big 3 aside from their bench.

  • Y’all got to understand that Lebron can’t dominance the game. Cause he know it’s not his team, it is Wade’s team. He has to wait for a green light from coach then he will dominance his game. That’s what I notice ever since he played for Heat.
