And their average margin of victory during the winning streak is something like +15. Crazy good. Soooooo much more fun to watch than whatever is going on in the East. Their ball movement is ridiculous.Alright, let's talk about Lebron. Last three (I think?) possessions were:1. Two missed free throws that could've given them lead.2. Gets the ball, doesn't look to create, just gives it to Battier. Gets it back, gives it up. (This might've been before the free throws; I wasn't watching live, so I was doing a lot of fast-forwarding/rewinding and might have the order messed up.)3. Goes to the corner for the final 3 attempt by Chalmers, but doesn't really try to be available (not that there was any way Chalmers wasn't putting that shot up).I know this is a lot of nit-picking (except the free throws, that was just bad), but given his history with the Heat, he really doesn't seem like he wants to be the hero. I'm not saying he has to take every single shot down the stretch, but too often he isn't even a threat to do anything. He just needs to be more involved.If you're the Heat, I guess the silver lining is that you probably won't shoot that bad next game. But Bosh's absence really clogs things up. And the Pacers were really awful shooting too during long stretches and will also probably be a lot better, especially since they're going home. Right now there is literally no end result to this series that would shock me. Anything from Miami in 5 to Indiana in 5 is on the table.No, I take that back, Indy in 5 would still shock me.Edit: Oh, there was a stat that said Lebron is 58.8% on free throws in the last minute of one-possession games. I'd like to know what the sample size is on that, but that's a little alarming. I'd also like to know what other stars shoot in similar situations.
