I'm still not sure who the answer is, but it might be someone none of us picked (Hassan Whiteside).

No other way to put this: Erik Spoelstra, who took over in 2008, is a quarter away from winning his first career playoff series without LeBron James.

Hornets' starters are 13-for-42 (31%) from the floor tonight. Heat up 83-53 at the end of a third quarter that saw the Hornets outscored 29-11. Rough end for Charlotte, which led the series 3-2 and was down two in the waning minutes in Game 6.

Goran Dragic, have a day!

The Heat guard continues his dominating Game 7 performance by throwing down this transition dunk.

Hassan Whiteside's 24 blocks in this series is a new franchise record for a postseason series.

Pippen and Jordan having a good ol' time

Goran Dragic just plain showing out now. It took 7 games, but Dragic has figured out Kemba Walker like Rocky did Ivan Drago midway through that fight in Russia.

Heat squashing everything the Hornets have available right now. Whiteside is erasing or intimidating shot attempts at the rim, and the Hornets are struggling to get the sort of penetration that led them to three wins this series. Heat lead 65-46 overall, and 40-16 in paint points.

Steven Adams on the emotions following Game 1's embarrassing blowout: "Anger. Definitely anger. All the negative ones."


Dragic, Whiteside on the same page

The Heat made two quick baskets to start the third quarter, including this Goran Dragic lob to Hassan Whiteside. Miami leads Charlotte on ABC.

Charlotte comes out at half with Nic Batum in place of Frank Kaminsky.

Michael Wallace ESPN Staff Writer 

One first-half stat jumps off the box score more than all others combined. Heat starters have a total of 1 foul. They've spent the bulk of the past few games managing foul trouble. More than anything, that's freed Goran Dragic to explode for 17 points entering the third period.

Kevin Durant talking through how the Thunder responded today to Game 1's blowout: "We didn't come in today with a bad attitude. We've got to move on to the next one."
