    Living in TX, I've seen a lot of San Antonio games and believe me, Duncan wants the last shot and is clutch, he's just "boring" so that could be why you think he isn't competitive.

    And the reason you feel he's a superstar that doesn't "dominate" like the other great players of his era is because he's always been on good teams and coached by someone that emphasizes ball movement.

    Did Paul George play tonight?

    So the Pacers play good basketball in Miami, but suck while playing in Indy?

    Wish Luck didn't show up in Indy too.

    Yea he played, but he only made one basket in the first half. He was pretty irrelevant. I barely watched the game, so I don't know how he did the second half.

    I assume that's why you were asking... because he was irrelevant.

    The Pacers will take game 4, but they've blown their chance at this series IMO.

    No. More like Miami react to adversity better then any team. Lost to Chicago then beat them by 39 next game. Lost to Indiana then come out and mop em on their own court. When Miami sees their own blood they play twice as hard. They're great.

    I see nothing to convince me they win another game. Miami was dominant.

    I agree, but they won't be putting up 114 points again. The first two games were close, and I expect game 4 to be as well.

    Miami should sweep Indiana when you look at the teams on paper, but the Pacers play so well at home. I don't see them losing both home games.

    Eh. Disagree.

    Every time I've seen him in clutch situations (many) he always passes the ball out from the paint... which is something you rarely see in general.

    He never wants it when the game is on the line. And any time he does actually take it, he's extremely hesitant and anxious with the ball.


    But he is boring... that too.

    Have you not been watching Duncan in the OT's against Memphis? lol

    He's also a 3 time Finals MVP.

    Also, if I could choose one PF in the history of basketball to build my team around, it would be Tim Duncan.

    Can you honestly say Duncan isn't the greatest PF of all time? You can make an argument with Kevin Garnett or Karl Malone, but other than those two, it shouldn't even be debatable.
