Thank You Eddie House

Who knew Heat's last game of the season, a 97-79 win over Toronto, would be one of the most important games of the season.  House had a career high 35 points and Jamaal Magloire went into double digits on the boards for the first time this year, and was three off from his career high with 19 total.  I guess it is a little easier to perform under pressure when you don't know it exists.  With Dallas being up 2-0 in the regular season match ups they had the tie breaker, so the Heats win vs. Raptors is what ended up giving Miami home court in these Finals.

NBA Finals Preview: Miami Heat v. Dallas Mavericks

Here we go, the NBA Finals. The Miami Heat versus the Dallas Mavericks. In a few weeks, either LeBron James or Dirk Nowitzki will no longer have the "never won a championship" tagline attached to his name.

I do want to first make brief mention of the conference finals that we just witnessed. I can't remember two five game series that were more competitive. Seemingly every game came down to the very end, and could have gone either way. While the series were both short, they were still quite entertaining.

Now, however, we move on to the main event. The Heat were expected to be here this year. They never quite reached the (insane) heights predicted by Jeff Van Gundy in the pre-season, but after a regular season filled with ups and downs they appear to be gelling at the right time. The Mavs, on the other hand, were thought to be an old team past its prime. However, looking at the stats, both contestants are quite worthy. They were two of only three teams that finished in the top 10 in both offensive and defensive efficiency. And the Mavs final record (and point differential) are somewhat misleading; when Dirk was out for a stretch of games mid-season, they went 2-7. When their best player is on the floor, they are a wholly different team.

The Heat are facing a team whose offense is drastically different from the one they just shut down. Yes, both the Bulls and Mavericks rely on a single superstar. But Miami's strategy against Chicago, which consisted of doubling or strongly hedging on Derrick Rose pick-and-rolls, forming a wall whenever Rose tried to drive, and forcing Bulls role players to shoot jumpers, won't cut it against the Mavs. The Bulls run simple offense sets, don't have a bevy of good shooters, and rely on Rose getting to the rim and on their bigs crashing the offensive glass. The Mavs run complex, and well executed, sets and have hardly anyone that can take their man off the dribble. Their offense centers around Dirk, and pushing the opponent into making difficult choices. If Dirk gets the ball one-on-one, do you double and allow the Mavs' shooters to take open jumpers? Or do you let him go to work and take his almost indefensible fall away? Similarly, if he's involved in a pick-and-roll, does his man stick to him like glue, allowing the man with the ball an easy path to the hoop? Or do you hedge, thereby giving Dirk the small bit of space he needs to get off a jumper? These are not easy decisions.

The Heat, however, are well built to defend the Mavs. They have a host of players who can cover Dirk: Chris Bosh, Udonis Haslem, Joel Anthony, and even LeBron James. None of these players can or will shut Dirk down. However, they should be able to make him work for his points. I expect the Heat to attempt to avoid predictability, and thereby change up defenders and whether or not to double team. Doubling against Dirk is extremely dangerous. He's a very good decision maker and will not force a shot that isn't there. (Did you see the Mavs completely light up the Lakers in the final game of their sweep?) But the Heat are extremely good at rotating out to the perimeter, and the long arms of their wings mean that they can bother a shot without being right in a man's face. The Mavs offense has unbelievable in the playoffs and Dallas will score their points. But they haven't faced a defense as good as Miami's. Gone are the days of hyper-efficiency and scoring in the 110s and 120s.

How about on the other end of the floor? The first issue when it comes to defending the Heat is figuring out what to do about LeBron and Wade. I expect Shawn Marion will be the primary defender on LeBron. He isn't quite the defender of Luol Deng, who forced LeBron into taking very difficult shots for much of the Chicago series. Also, the Mavs help defense, and ability to block off the paint, is nowhere close to as good as the Bulls. Tyson Chandler will be very important in this respect, and he absolutely needs to stay out of foul trouble. Dwayne Wade will probably be covered initially by Deshawn Stevenson. Once Stevenson finds his way to the bench, Jason Kidd will likely get the assignment. Kidd will cover Wade much like he covered Kobe Bryant; he'll allow him space, and try to goad him into shooting long two pointers. Wade, however, is much better than Kobe right now at getting to the rim. He struggled mightily against Chicago. His jumper wasn't falling (to be honest, it often isn't) and he wasn't able to get to the rim. He resorted to trying to draw fouls and shooting tough mid-range shots. Wade should find the Mavs defense preferable, though if Chandler can stay in the game, he'll be a real obstacle. Nowitzki will probably likely cover Bosh. The Mavs want Chandler (and Brendan Haywood) to stay near the rim. It's a matchup that Bosh should be looking forward to. And if he can get Dirk into foul trouble, it would be huge. Because the Mavs don't matchup all that well on an individual basis against the Heat (few do), they may double frequently and try to force the Heat role players, who are quite inferior to the likes of Jason Terry and Peja Stojakovic, to shoot jumpers.

The Mavs hidden weapon in this series could be their zone defense. They play zone more often, and with better results, than any other team in the NBA. They also utilize hybrid defenses that are difficult to categorize, mixing man and zone coverage. Using zone against Miami will allow Dallas to hide their inability to cover the Heat stars one-on-one, and may force the Heat into becoming a jump shooting team. LeBron James has hit some huge three point shots this post-season, but any opponent would still far prefer that he keeps taking those long range bombs than have him get into the lane. If the Mavs do go this route, Chris Bosh becomes extremely important. He'll be counted on to catch the ball around the foul line and either hit jumpers or facilitate the offense. The Heat will also need Wade and LeBron to resist the instinct to fall in love with their jump shots. Instead, they need to be patient, drive, move off the ball, and only shoot jumpers when are truly open looks.

Substitution patterns will be yet another chess match within this series. James Jones didn't see the floor at all against the Bulls, but should see some time here as his lack of rebounding isn't as much of an issue, and he could be lethal against a Dallas zone. Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem will continue to see increased minuted as well. Haslem will be asked to hit open jumpers and if Miller can hit his three pointers, despite his unusable thumbs, it would be a big lift.

Will the Mavs be able to get away with having J.J. Barea, Jason Terry and Peja on the floor at the same time? The spacing they provide is great, but will it make up for their defense and lack of size and bulk? Will Corey Brewer get some run so he can cover LeBron or Wade?

Finally, while the Heat will almost assuredly go without a point guard at times and use a lineup consisting of the Big Three plus Miller and Haslem, will they spend any time with a small lineup that has LeBron at the 4? The spacing from such a lineup, as well as having LeBron be the one that catches the ball at the foul line as the point-forward, would make it nearly impossible for Dallas to play zone.

I expect a great series. In the end, however, the Heat are a slightly better team and also have a slightly better matchup. Heat in 7.

Match Ups Not Taken Advantage Of

Here are the players and how they matched up at the end of the 4th in last night's OKC vs. Dallas game.

Dallas - OKC

C: Chandler - C: Collison
PF: Dirk - PG: Maynor
SF: Marion - PG: Westbrook
PG: Kidd - SF: Durant
PG: Terry - SG: Harden

With 38 year old 6'4 Jason Kidd covering the the scoring title king, 6'9 22 year old Kevin Durant, why didn't OKC go to and abuse this match up every single time down the court? It is time to stop praising Durant for being so humble and start criticizing him for it. He needs to demand the ball.

And I was wrong on a whole lot of predictions so far in the playoffs, but did I not call this one almost perfectly?

Lebron James' Other Skills

When people talk about how great Lebron James is they usually, as with most other superstars, only talk about how great he is at scoring.  They usually miss the two points that actually make him the greatest basketball player in the NBA right now:

1) Lebron has to be one of the top 3 or 4 decision makers in the NBA on the offensive side of the ball. And if you exclude point-guards, no one can touch his decision making skills. Counting assist totals, while impressive, does not do him justice. It is not only the passes he makes, but the shots that he does NOT attempt that make him so great. For his career, Lebron is a 48% shooter. You will seldom see Lebron force low percentage circus shots, something that almost every other star loves to do (see Kobe, Rose, Ellis, Wade, Westbrook, Melo etc.), or not make the right pass when double teamed. The only ones who can rival Lebron in this department are Chris Paul, Steve Nash, and Deron Williams. The closest non-pg to Lebron in this category is Dirk Nowitzki. It is no coincidence that Lebron and Dirk are going to see each other in the Finals. If basketball had hockey assists, then Dirk would be top 10 in the league. Both of these players make extremely hard shots easy, high percentage shots by using their strength (Lebron) and their length and unorthodox shot (Nowtizki). Most other 'superstars' are considered superstars because they can make a circus shot at a higher rate then anybody else. It is good to be able to make those shots, but is not something that should be relied upon at all times (again, see Kobe, Rose, Melo, Ellis, etc).

2) This point is not so much underrated, as he is on the 1st all defensive team, but it is still not talked about enough.  This is the reason Rose, and countless others, are not even close to being in the same class as Lebron is.  At the end of a close game you can throw Lebron at the other team's best scorer every single time. Literally. There are maybe only 2 or 3 players (Howard, Bynum, ?) in all of the NBA he can not cover, and both of those players are not getting the ball in crunch time anyway. He showed last night he can cover one of, and perhaps the single, quickest players in the NBA, and he has the height and strength to bang with almost every big in the league. Although Bosh might be able to play good defense on Nowtizki due to Bosh's height/length and Nowitzki's non-physical style, it will be very interesting to see what happens if and when Lebron is asked to cover Dirk. I will not be surprised if Lebron is on Dirk in almost all close and late 4th quarter situations, especially considering Dallas does not have a great offensive minded wing player on the team.

LeBron James Shuts Down Derrick Rose and Related News...

The Chicago Bulls were a basket away last night from tying their series against the Miami Heat at 2 apiece and reclaiming home court advantage. Instead, Miami pulled the game out in overtime and is now in command with a 3-1 lead. Some thoughts:
  • Watching LeBron James and Derrick Rose play against each over a span of four times has illustrated the still wide chasm that exists between the two. LeBron is a more efficient scorer, an exponentially better defender, and at least Rose's equal as a passer. And for all the talk about Derrick Rose taking over in the fourth quarter, he has shot under 25% in the final period in this series. LeBron, meanwhile, has taken over late in games. After Game 1, there was a knee-jerk reaction from a bunch of columnists proclaiming that Rose was the best player in the NBA. I don't hear anyone saying that now.
  • Interesting switch by Erik Spoelstra to put LeBron on Rose in the 4th quarter. LeBron's defense was impressive, staying in front of the MVP while also getting a hand in Rose's face if he attempted a step back jumper. After the switch, Tom Thibodeau decided to go away from the pick-and-roll and had Rose isolate and go one-on-one. It didn't pay off. What I don't get is why, when Mike Bibby is covering Rose, Thibs continues to force the pick-and-roll? By sending over Boozer or Noah, the Bulls continually invite a double-team. If you're going to go away from that strategy with LeBron covering Rose, why not do the same thing when the slower-footed Bibby is the one playing defense? Or, conversely, if you don't think isolation is a good tactic against Bibby, what would make you think that it would work against LeBron?
  • Omer Asik was missed. Joakim Noah looked great to start the third quarter, but with his non-stop energy he quickly became tired, but couldn't get his normal rest.
  • Good to see Mike Miller finally getting some rhythm. Pretty crazy he can even shoot this well with his fingers all taped up.
  • How many travels are going to be allowed during this post-season? LeBron had more than one clear violation, and Rose was a culprit as well. On the other hand, the late fourth quarter charge on LeBron was also a poor call; the refs appeared to believe he used his arm to clear Brewer out, but he did not.
  • Rose continues to struggle to hit shots, but wow, those two dunks he had in succession in the second quarter were something to behold. Do you realize the guy is only 6'3? He's barely taller than Jason Terry.
  • On a related note, the Bulls need to find a way to get out in transition more, especially in the fourth quarter. It's easier said than done, as the Heat have been very good at getting back on defense. But Rose has so far only been able to get to the rim when he catches the ball on the move and attacks the Heat defense before it is set.
  • During the 4th quarter and overtime, the Heat finally went to the lineup that was supposed to be their crunchtime quintet all year: LeBron, Wade, Miller, Bosh, Haslem. Even while Miller and Haslem have been working themselves back into the rotation, Spoelstra had been slow to throw this unit onto the floor. We'll see if he keeps going to it as we go forward.
  • Is Dwayne Wade hurt? He hasn't looked good at all the last two games. When Deng was on him for a short stretch, he was able to use his quickness to get to the hole with ease, but Bogans and Brewer kept him bottled up. Wade repeatedly tried to draw fouls with pump fakes and, when that didn't work, threw up off-balance mid-range jumpers.
  • Mike Miller: +36 in 26 minutes. Sheesh.
  • With Miller and Haslem getting increased minutes, the Bulls rebounding advantage has shrunk. The Heat basically played the Bulls even on the glass (42 for the Bulls, 41 for the Heat; 10 offensive boards for the Bulls, 8 for the Heat).
  • Is Noah the best 7'0 passer in the league2? 6 assists for the second game in a row. And he has successfully run more than one fast break.
  • The Heat are LeBron James' team. Sorry Dwayne Wade, but the transformation appears to be complete. Spoelstra has made a clear decision that he wants the ball in the hands of James, not Wade, late in the game.
  • The Heat cannot let their guard down. With two games left in Chicago, the series could still quickly become a slugfest should Chicago hold serve at home and then come out fighting in Game 6.
