I'll first man up and say good series and Detroit went out and took it in the 4th when it counted and Miami didn't respond. So in the end, no referee shenanigans, no excuses, no bitching over injuries...Detroit was the better team in the last 5 minutes.
But that said......
crap crap crap crap crap fuckity fuck fuck fuck.

Tough break for Miami. Injuries do happen but it seems like everyone was banged up somehow. From Damon Jones tweaked heel and ankle, Wade's rib strain, Shaq's thigh strain to the question mark over Zo's health.
This series literally was decided in the last 2 minutes - like it should have. Miami (and Shaq for that matter) has nothing to be ashamed about. I think they'll be back even though Shaq will be a year older.
Though I must say, if Dwyane Wade develops a consistent jumper, look out.

I see many, many, MANY sub-80 games in this one. PG Tinsley--Billups SG Miller--Hamilton SF Artest--Prince PF O'Neal--R. Wallace C Foster--B. Wallace Well, if you're into defensive games, this is the series to watch. Pacers in 6.
