Knicks were bombing 3's. Heat fans left early.
Usually the NBA is unwatchable, but this game was entertaining.
I don't understand the "unwatchable" comments. The offensive flow of the NBA is much better than college. The 24 second shot clock is something I wish college basketball would adopt, along with not resetting the entire shot clock on fouls (why does a team need so many seconds to run a play? Ridiculous.). It's a rather cliche and overly basic argument, but it rings true: college ball has more passion behind it and more raucous crowds, but the NBA has the true superstar talent and amazing play.
Yeah, the elite college teams play a high level of basketball that is truly fun to watch, but there's not a lot of those teams. Most teams in college have an offense that looks like this: swings the ball to left, pump fake, swings the ball back to PG, pump fake, 10 foot drive, swings the ball to right, pump fake, 7 foot drive, tries entry pass to center, deflected ball out of bounds. Yay. Speed the game up already.
