keep it going Mikado.

lol.  I did the same buddy.  I broke gambling rule #1 and put about 30% of my roll on Miami 2nd half on 4 different alt lines.  I would never advise to do that, but seeing Scott Foster and Mike Callahan officiating in the 1st half made it one of the easiest decisions I have made all season.

it wasn't quite that easy for me as i've never really invested in that much money in one game before. but i was so heavily invested already i grew the balls to go all the way w/ what i saw in the game in regards to the cheats getting those calls to edge the game. just glad it paid off or i would have been done for the finals & just way for my pending wagers on Miami.

well done to us. absolutely nailed it

After watching almost half of the game and seeing where the calls are going, it seems fairly obvious to me that Scott Foster is getting a little too generous towards the Heat (if you have not seen it with the Bulls and Pacers series). 

Line opened with the Spurs being a 2 point favorite, yet tipped at a 1 point dog.  I am not going to go into too much detail here because all of this is Googable (if that is a term yet) - but when Scott Foster is on a game where the line moves more than two points is a SOLID indicator the team of the direction of that movement will be a winner.

We can talk about all the interworkings of the matchups and psychology of a Game 4, but you are watching this game blind if you think the officials do not matter. 

Chalk it up for MIA 

 

Spurs 31 free throws

Heat 17

Heat didn't win because of Foster, they won because they are the better team that was desperate, shooting a spectacular 52.9% from the field to the Spurs 44.3%.

The team that shoots the higher % wins about 79% of all games and  when a team is out-shot by such a large margin those %'s go way up, Foster had nothing to do with that, the Heat players did...................................................

Not buying the fix is in stuff...........................................

Mikado -- any chance you would have thought that the foul shot total in this game would have been 31 for SAS and 17 for MIA, and that MIA would have won by 16?

Very strange result

Effort was extremely varying, but as we have seen (like vs Pistons and Cavs this year) they can come back from getting their azz handed to them for 36 minutes, they just have to find that motivation and drive.  When Miami is turned on, they cannot be stopped - best team in the league.  However SA can win this series and that starts with consistency on D, they cannot let Miami find their confidence, especially in transition and from the 3 pt line.  SA needs to play 48 minutes of strict D like Game 3 and do not let Miami get in their zone.  SA's offense will find itself enough points to win, they just cannot do too much and start making mistakes on the offensive end turning their TO's into easy MIA buckets.  
YOU HIT IT RIGHT ON THE HEAD, DEFENSE AND KEEP THE TURN OVERS IN CHECK.

I'm on Spurs heavy.  If you look into Tony Brothers and Ed Malloy with the Miami Heat it will yield some interesting results. 

Good Luck to everybody in the Association

I don't do totals anymore.

There is some interesting research that shows those who predict totals are worse at predicting outcomes - and those who bet outcomes are worse at predicting totals.  Find your strengths and use it to your advantage.
