Mon Jun 06 00:20:57 2011 #FinalsGm3 I like #TheWarden working on the glass right now
Mon Jun 06 00:21:43 2011 #FinalsGm3 @chrisbosh murdering Peja. As expected.
Mon Jun 06 00:24:40 2011 #FinalsGm3 Kidd on @dwadeofficial again? Time to go to work.
Mon Jun 06 00:28:25 2011 #FinalsGm3 RT @mySynergySports: The Heat are Isolating Dwyane Wade on the left wing whenever possible. He's (cont) http://tl.gd/au36ed
Mon Jun 06 00:29:49 2011 #FinalsGm3 #UD gotta stay on the ground if he's not gonna shoot that
Mon Jun 06 00:31:12 2011 #FinalsGm3 Love the way #UD took out that Dirk screen so @mchalmers15 could stay w/ Barea
Mon Jun 06 00:32:23 2011 #FinalsGm3 @KingJames is NOT fucking around w/ this game! He has 1 focus - GETTING TO THE RIM!
Mon Jun 06 00:35:32 2011 #FinalsGm3 ALL @mchalmers15 DOES IS HIT BIG SHOTS! GODDAMN, DALLAS - MIGHTY QUIET DOWN THERE! LMAO
Mon Jun 06 00:36:47 2011 #FinalsGm3 RT @grantstern: So far, so #whitehot! Go #heat!
Mon Jun 06 00:40:04 2011 #FinalsGm3 More like destroy Barea RT @EthanJSkolnick: Chalmers checks in to check Barea. One of the key matchups tonight.
Mon Jun 06 00:46:38 2011 #FinalsGm3 Homecourt advantage #scorecasting RT @ByTimReynolds: Heat 6 fouls, Dallas 3 so far.
Mon Jun 06 00:53:13 2011 #FinalsGm3 Two hands, Bosh. Two hands.
Mon Jun 06 00:53:59 2011 #FinalsGm3 true story. RT @halstonisreal94: The Mavs cant stop us from getting to the rim....at all
Mon Jun 06 00:55:41 2011 #FinalsGm3 @dwadeofficial to Dirk: "You ain't got no heart! GIMME THAT REBOUND!"
Mon Jun 06 00:56:19 2011 #FinalsGm3 Bosh gotta stop shooting at this point...
Mon Jun 06 00:59:10 2011 #FinalsGm3 @dwadeofficial to JET: "Celebrate this block & dunk, YOU SUCKAAAAAAAAAAA!!!" (KRS-1 VOICE)
Mon Jun 06 01:03:22 2011 #FinalsGm3 @UptownReport & I said we expected a dbl-digit win on Saturday's podcast. We're looking REAL good right now http://bit.ly/knjVrH
Mon Jun 06 01:06:20 2011 #FinalsGm3 That was terrific transition D on Terry's layup
Mon Jun 06 01:22:29 2011 #FinalsGm3 Heat winning 2 of 4 factors: Shooting & Offensive Rebs. Tied in TOs. Mavs winning battle at FT line (as expected)
Mon Jun 06 01:32:36 2011 #FinalsGm3 I can accept poor shooting (for awhile) but WHY does Bosh only have 1 rebound?
Mon Jun 06 01:35:01 2011 #FinalsGm3 #TheWarden was only 1 running w/ @KingJames & he got rewarded w/ a layup. Nice.
Mon Jun 06 01:35:58 2011 #FinalsGm3 Good pass from @dwadeofficial to @ochrisbosh
Mon Jun 06 01:41:18 2011 #FinalsGm3 Damn... @chrisbosh eye is fucked up...
Mon Jun 06 01:42:35 2011 #FinalsGm3 Bibby... PUT THE BALL ON THE FLOOR VS BAREA! HE CAN'T GUARD YOU!
Mon Jun 06 01:45:04 2011 #FinalsGm3 The offense is SIMPLE... ATTACK Kidd & Barea. THAT'S. IT. That's the offense.
Mon Jun 06 01:49:19 2011 #FinalsGm3 Bad D by Bosh 2 give Dirk that open transition 3
Mon Jun 06 01:50:38 2011 #FinalsGm3 I'd like to see @mchalmers15 on the floor to expose Barea. Bibby can't do it. And here he comes. My man, Spo!
Mon Jun 06 01:53:32 2011 #FinalsGm3 damn, he's right RT @sportyloc: Bosh has the biggie small eye now.. #TEAMHEAT
Mon Jun 06 01:56:03 2011 #FinalsGm3 That's it. Attack Kidd & Barea. That's the offense. Make Carlisle take 'em out & then attack their replacements.
Mon Jun 06 01:58:24 2011 #FinalsGm3 LeBron has to keep attacking like he was in 1st half
Mon Jun 06 02:00:44 2011 #FinalsGm3 Agreed RT @Brendan_Tobin: Wade is gassed and needs a breather and LeBron needs to go at the rim in his absence
Mon Jun 06 02:02:39 2011 #FinalsGm3 I agree RT @EthanJSkolnick: Here's a second-guess for you: Spoelstra should have gone to Chalmers, (cont) http://tl.gd/au4fg6
Mon Jun 06 02:04:28 2011 #FinalsGm3 @mchalmers15 can kill Barea ALL NIGHT. Great drive & dish to #UD
Mon Jun 06 02:06:12 2011 #FinalsGm3 RT @Zakeya_MsLADYTH: Let's go @mchalmers15!
Mon Jun 06 02:12:26 2011 #FinalsGm3 Mahinmi couldn't guard @cchrisbosh w/ a gun & a badge
Mon Jun 06 02:15:11 2011 #FinalsGm3 Damn... That pass to @chrisbosh was as sick as the finish
Mon Jun 06 02:21:14 2011 #FinalsGm3 I like to see #UD shooting w/ confidence!
Mon Jun 06 02:21:53 2011 #FinalsGm3 I LOVE TO SEE @mchalmers15 SHOOTING WITH CONFIDENCE!!!
Mon Jun 06 02:26:34 2011 #FinalsGm3 That's it! Attack Kidd!
Mon Jun 06 02:29:55 2011 #FinalsGm3 Not sure why LeBron & Bosh both passed on shots in the paint to kick it out the last 2 possessions. Wade might have to do it solo
Mon Jun 06 02:32:02 2011 #FinalsGm3 True story RT @dan_d_bear: RT @bomani_jones: say what you want about chalmers, but he ain't even the littlest bit scurred.
Mon Jun 06 02:33:41 2011 #FinalsGm3 @dwadeofficial hit kidd w/ the Tim Hardaway dbl tap b4 nailing that 3!
Mon Jun 06 02:35:17 2011 #FinalsGm3 WTF was @chrisbosh doing bringing Chandler to @mchalmers15 in the corner? WTF?
Mon Jun 06 02:39:31 2011 #FinalsGm3 LeBron & Bosh not looking good...
Mon Jun 06 02:42:16 2011 #FinalsGm3 @chrisbosh did his job on that play
Mon Jun 06 02:44:39 2011 #FinalsGm3 Heat get a chance to redeem themselves 4 the bad D at end of Gm2...
Mon Jun 06 02:48:01 2011 #FinalsGm3 HOW'S IT FEEL DALLAS? GET USED TO IT!! 2 MORE OF THESE COMING. All the refs in that game can eat a dick, too. Incl. the alternate
Mon Jun 06 02:55:41 2011 #FinalsGm3 I remember when LeBron James was a dominant player... Not sure what happened to that guy.
Mon Jun 06 02:57:11 2011 #FinalsGm3 Oh yeah, fuck Dirk's finger. @chrisbosh hit the game winner w/ one eye.
Mon Jun 06 03:21:16 2011 #FinalsGm3 Oh, yeah... Everybody talking about Chalmers' 3 shouldn't have counted can KISS MY ENTIRE ASS. Heat (cont) http://tl.gd/au5n3b
