Finals series don't usually go long after first two losses

Only once after a home team won the first two games of the NBA Finals has a series gone the maximum seven games. Last year San Antonio won twice at home but needed seven games to beat Detroit.

The previous time Miami lost consecutive playoff games by double figures was in the first round of the 2001 playoffs, when it lost three straight to the Charlotte Hornets.

Given that fact, check out the saavy marketing & Page Ranking by Cuban:

Cuban said before Sunday's game that if the series goes to Game 7, he plans to give away any tickets that would normally be available for single-game sales.

Yes, give away. For free.

''It's a thank you,'' Cuban said. ``It's the ultimate game of the season and the ultimate thank you.''

Cuban said there are normally 1,400 such tickets available. He said the team is working with sponsors on a plan to distribute the free tickets that would entail recipients showing identification at the gate in order to prevent scalping.

``I'm all for capitalism, but the by-the-book way would be to put all the tickets up for auction and keep the money ourselves, but I don't want to do that. So we'll try to come up with something better, and what could be better than to just give them away for free?

``We're trying to get it so that it's an open opportunity for everybody. It's not about who can afford it, it's who gets lucky.''

Cuban had already announced an across-the-board reduction of ticket prices for next season, including a package of 10 games for $20 -- $2 per game.

''We're going to be the first team probably in NBA history to either go to the Finals or win the Finals and reduce their ticket prices the next year,'' Cuban said.

in 1977, it didn't go 7 games. the blazers won the championship in six games after losing games 1 and 2.

Doesn't matter. The mavs will have it wrapped up before it gets to a game 7. I'll be surprised if it goes past 5.

"huge" = Cuban's EGO.

"teeney weenie" = Cuban's (you fill in the blank)

I think it still goes at least 6

Miami should be able to win at least 2 of the 3 they have coming up at home IMO

They must win game 3
