2011 NBA Finals Game 6: Dallas @ Miami

via imgs.xkcd.com

Will the narrative flip once again tonight? Who the heck knows. I'm prepared to accept the outcome either way. Love to see a game 7, though. Wouldn't you? I've got some ezPM stats for the series after the jump...

Dwyane Wade is getting it done for Miami. His ezPM100 is 13.31, which is incredibly high. LeBron is playing like a slightly below-average player with a -0.36 ezPM. Chris Bosh (-7.71 ezPM) is playing worse than a replacement player. On the Dallas side, Chandler (5.91), Dirk (2.92), and Stevenson (4.31) are having the best series thus far. Barea (-6.59) is not.

 

Everyone in the world has seemingly recognized that LeBron, for whatever reason, has this apparent tendency to disappear in some of the truly biggest games. I think it's safe to say he has not played a bigger game than the one tonight. It will be interesting to see if he asserts himself, the way he is definitely capable of, or if he once again does his best impersonation of a shrinking violet.

 

One thing is for sure, narratives can switch on a dime. If he has a big game, all will be forgiven...until Game 7. This should be good.
