Heat dying at the FT line

The Heat have finally gotten to the line in Game 6, but it doesn't matter if they can't knock them down.

The Heat had missed 13 free throws with 7:38 remaining in the fourth quarter, and were facing a nine-point deficit.

Even hitting half their free throws would put them in range as the Mavericks seemingly can't miss. The Heat needed to get to the line. They have. But they're missing. The biggest culprit?

You guessed it. LeBron James, who was 1 of 4 from the line. 

As the clock winds down on the Heat season, the realization the Mavs are simply better becomes cleared, but the Heat will still blame themselves for not converting their chances.

Of course Heat will blame themselves. No way you miss that many FT in a pivotal game AT HOME. NO WAY!!!

Pal, if you're going to call someone "retarded," make sure you're spelling correctly (or, should I say, clearly) and using proper grammar. You're excused, not your. But hey, look, watch the NBA...if the lockout doesn't happen, that is. Wink

The Good Lord sent an angel to swat away Miami's free throws...that was the payment for the 3 'Kings' deifying themselves before they ever did the work to earn anything.  Self-promotion and talent only gets you to the big game...its determination, humility, and steadfastness that gets you the ring.  CONGRATS MAVERICKS FOR BEING ONE OF THE FEW AND PROUD THAT ACTUALLY EARNED YOUR CHAMPIONSHIP!!!

Free throws really killed Miami tonight. I couldn't be happier for Dirk and Jason Kidd for finally getting a championship that they both so greatly deserve. Now they won't have to join the list of great athletes who never won a title. The Heat were the better team on paper, but the Mavericks out-executed, out-played, and out-toughed the Miami Heat in this series. Next season will be interesting to watch to see if Miami is able to recover from a loss like this. Also, I believe the Mavericks have a legitimate chance of repeating a finals appearance next year. This is a good veteran team and they will be getting guys back like Caron Butler and Roddy Boubois who were hurt during the playoffs. GO MAVS!!!!!! and thanks for a great series.

The League did everything to help the Heat to win getting all the free throws  33 -18 tonight .....  it helped Miami against Boston getting a 3 to 1 advantage in FT's which is the reason Miami got past Boston  ... But It didn't work against Dallas   "SWEET" but Stern is no different than Vince Mcmahon  and it  is nice to see the league screw up   LOL  so DALLAS are real Champions being able to beat the  HEAT , REFS , and  STERN    OH Yeah !!!!
