Fri Jun 03 01:22:32 2011 #FinalsGm2 Yeah, Peja on @chrisbosh ain't gonna work, Rick Carlisle
Fri Jun 03 01:24:33 2011 #FinalsGm2 It's gonna be a long night if Bibby's knocking down open 3s!
Fri Jun 03 01:27:25 2011 #FinalsGm2 RT @EthanJSkolnick: DScott approached Bibby after practice yesterday. "Stop thinking & shoot the damn ball, Mike." He's 2-for-2.
Fri Jun 03 01:30:57 2011 #FinalsGm2 @KingJames WITH THE MONSTER PUTBACK DUNK! FUCK YO' ZONE, RICK CARLISE! FUCK YO' ZONE!

Fri Jun 03 01:44:36 2011 #FinalsGm2 RT @mySynergySports: LeBron hadn't hit a three going left on an iso in the playoffs until right then, he also hadn't taken one.
Fri Jun 03 01:47:42 2011 #FinalsGm2 GODDAMN @dwadeofficial SPLITS 4 DEFENDERS FOR THE LAYUP!
Fri Jun 03 01:48:55 2011 #FinalsGm2 Soon as @MiamiHEAT stop turning the ball over, they'll take the lead
Fri Jun 03 01:50:04 2011 #FinalsGm2 LET 'EM KNOW @m33m - I saw Barea try to knee you in the face!
Fri Jun 03 01:51:59 2011 #FinalsGm2 YO... @dwadeofficial HAD HIS HEAD ABOVE THE RIM WHEN HE DUNKED BACK BOSH'S MISSED LAYUP!
Fri Jun 03 01:52:33 2011 #FinalsGm2 @dwadeofficial is in the middle of a berserker rage right now!
Fri Jun 03 01:53:37 2011 #FinalsGm2 Maybe @scottiepippen was right on @KingJames RT @heraldgutierrez: MJ's fadeaways never came from that far away... I'm just sayin'
Fri Jun 03 01:54:09 2011 #FinalsGm2 This shit has to stop... RT @ByTimReynolds: 99th game of the season. 2nd time Heat shot 0 free throws in first quarter.
Fri Jun 03 01:56:49 2011 #FinalsGm2 Finally a fucking shooting foul
Fri Jun 03 01:59:16 2011 #FinalsGm2 Bosh is gonna have to do something else to contribute until he gets some easy buckets. His offense has been terrible last 4 qtrs
Fri Jun 03 01:59:59 2011 #FinalsGm2 3pt play 4 @KingJames - I'll take it.
Fri Jun 03 02:03:32 2011 #FinalsGm2 I feel a tech coming on...
Fri Jun 03 02:08:15 2011 #FinalsGm2 @MiamiHEAT doing a good job at the rim. Seems like a lot of blocks & forced misses by Mavs
Fri Jun 03 02:10:48 2011 #FinalsGm2 You know it's a bad night at the line when @mchalmers15 misses 2 FTs in a row
Fri Jun 03 02:13:21 2011 #FinalsGm2 @mchalmers15 & @m33m causing havoc on D. @dwadeofficial tying the game from 3. #LETSGOHEAT
Fri Jun 03 02:13:45 2011 #FinalsGm2 Word up... RT @pinedaNBA_HEAT: thanks joey for trying even out the foul calls
Fri Jun 03 02:14:47 2011 #FinalsGm2 Mavs didn't score in last 2:57 of half RT @NBA: Great team play for Mavs w/ 51-42 lead w/ 2:57 left (cont) http://tl.gd/as2bi0

Fri Jun 03 02:35:25 2011 #FinalsGm2 Bosh has gotta stop getting stripped on those drives. Has to work on that in offseason
Fri Jun 03 02:36:38 2011 #FinalsGm2 @chrisbosh returns the favor to Dirk - strips him, passes 2 bibby, who outlets to @dwadeofficial who feeds @KingJames 4 the dunk
Fri Jun 03 02:37:40 2011 #FinalsGm2 @dwadeofficial goes around the back on Dirk and goes in for the reverse dunk! #LETSGOHEAT
Fri Jun 03 02:41:27 2011 #FinalsGm2 MIA winning 2 of 4 factors: Shooting & TOs. Those are the 2 most important.
Fri Jun 03 02:41:59 2011 #FinalsGm2 Bosh missing easy shots...
Fri Jun 03 02:43:45 2011 #FinalsGm2 @dwadeofficial IS NOT FUCKING AROUND! 2-HANDED MONSTER DUNK IN DIRK'S FACE AFTER POSTING UP J.KIDD!
Fri Jun 03 02:45:53 2011 #FinalsGm2 c'mon, Bosh. Get your feet underneath you & be big!
Fri Jun 03 02:47:24 2011 #FinalsGm2 Maybe it's against the laws of physics for Bibby & Chalmers to both have their shot going in the same game...
Fri Jun 03 02:48:06 2011 #FinalsGm2 Lol RT @missdaiana: Who is this Bibby guy? #Heat
Fri Jun 03 02:49:20 2011 #FinalsGm2 1st it was Jrue Holiday. Then it was Delonte West. Next it was Luol Deng. Now it's Shawn Marion. He's starting to piss me off...
Fri Jun 03 02:49:48 2011 #FinalsGm2 Does Brian Cardinal = the white flag?
Fri Jun 03 02:51:23 2011 #FinalsGm2 Damn, after finally getting his shot going & draining his 4th 3, Bibby gets poked in the eye. Too good 2 last, I guess...
Fri Jun 03 02:52:38 2011 #FinalsGm2 Of course, it was Brian Cardinal that hit Bibby in the eye. Probably why Carlisle put him in... "Take out Bibby"
Fri Jun 03 02:54:10 2011 @Dahaitianb3ast Yup. 5 game winning streak on that VS. Marion must've been drinking trying to dunk on The Warden #FinalsGm2
Fri Jun 03 02:54:39 2011 #FinalsGm2 Guess not RT @Shandel_HeatNBA: Guess there won't be any questions in the post-game asking Wade if he's injured.
Fri Jun 03 02:57:21 2011 #FinalsGm2 Too bad I predicting a big gm 4 him RT @heraldgutierrez: Bosh can't get a roll or a foul call tonight.... 7-of-30 for the series.
Fri Jun 03 02:59:51 2011 #FinalsGm2 The Warden is BLOCKING EVERYTHING out there!
Fri Jun 03 03:00:21 2011 #FinalsGm2 RT @ByTimReynolds: Huge basket for Bosh, who had been 3-22 in his last four-plus quarters.
Fri Jun 03 03:03:21 2011 #FinalsGm2 I needed a Kevin Harlan "No regard for human life!" call on that last dunk by @KingJames
Fri Jun 03 03:05:57 2011 #FinalsGm2 LMAO! RT @SuryaHeatNBA: So I thought Bibby's shot was going to make a Twitter retirement video as well. Spoke too soon I guess.
Fri Jun 03 03:10:34 2011 #FinalsGm2 :-) RT @Doug2LiveStews: Lol...Juwan Howard is the new ML Carr! #fb
Fri Jun 03 03:12:11 2011 #FinalsGm2 Hey @mcuban - didn't your coach & players say they wanted to play uptempo? How's THAT Decision working out? Not. At. All.
Fri Jun 03 03:15:34 2011 #FinalsGm2 RT @EthanJSkolnick: Nine of Wade's 12 baskets tonight are inside 5 feet.
Fri Jun 03 03:16:17 2011 #FinalsGm2 Barea can't guard him RT @DuckkettZ: Chalmers that's how you drive, for now on thats how you drive!!

Fri Jun 03 03:19:55 2011 #FinalsGm2 another myth busted RT @Takahoopshi: Dirk Nowitzki, the nation's "Last Hope" has 15 pts on 16 shots, 4 TOs. So much for that.
Fri Jun 03 03:20:44 2011 #FinalsGm2 @mchalmers15 drives baseline & feeds @dwadeofficial FOR THREE! IT'S A MOTHERFUCKING SHOW OUT THERE!!!
Fri Jun 03 03:22:06 2011 #FinalsGm2 RT @chrisperk: Mavs scored just 40 2nd-half pts in Game 1. They have 22 so far tonite.
Fri Jun 03 03:22:35 2011 #FinalsGm2 2 shots. Dunks & 3s RT @Bouncex3: RT @AnaheimAmigos: Miami's shot chart is going to make it look like they only made one shot.

Fri Jun 03 03:31:34 2011 #FinalsGm2 @dwadeofficial is simply the best! RT @chrisperk: Wade just stood on seat on bench and cheered on fans. Place goin' crazy.
Fri Jun 03 03:37:47 2011 #FinalsGm2 Great D. Now get a score.

Fri Jun 03 03:51:52 2011 #FinalsGm2 I'll say this about Spo. The 1 mistake he made was burning all the timeouts. Inbound at halfcourt changes everything.
Fri Jun 03 03:56:31 2011 #FinalsGm2 I don't even feel like running the #HeatProduced numbers for this fucking game...
Fri Jun 03 04:00:14 2011 #FinalsGm2 Why does it seem like every time Bibby has a good shooting night, the Heat lose? 1st CLE, now this.
Fri Jun 03 04:09:14 2011 #FinalsGm2 I can't even imagine what insane, annoying questions @iraheatbeat will ask Spo in the presser
Fri Jun 03 04:10:02 2011 #FinalsGm2 It's all good, they're entertainers. Ratings for Game 3 will be historic as all the haters get in front of their TV set.
Fri Jun 03 04:12:51 2011 #NowPlaying #FinalsGm2 postgame on HEAT.com: Spo looks like he's aged 10 years... Damn
