Mario Chalmers of the Miami Heat will need all the gold stars, super mushrooms and fire flowers in the world to turn his NBA Finals experience around.
The Heat trail the San Antonio Spurs 2-1 after getting crushed at the AmericanAirlines Arena on Tuesday night, losing 111-92.
Chalmers did little to help his team, missing all five of his shots in 21 minutes of action.
He also turned the basketball over three times and picked up four personal fouls as well.
As ESPN Stats & Info points out on Twitter, the numbers Chalmers is putting up through three games of this series has him ranked with some of the worst starters in NBA Finals history.
Mario Chalmers: the only starter in last 30 seasons to play 50+ min, score 10 pts or fewer and shoot 25% or less from field in NBA Finals.

The hashtag #PGsBetterThanChalmers was even trending on social media last night. Fans didn’t hold back in their mocking of the 28-year-old point guard.

Chalmers had three points on 1-of-3 shooting in Game 1, following that up with just five points in 31 minutes in Game 2.
His inability to stay on the court has held him back from getting into any sort of a rhythm. He has more personal fouls through three games (12) than he does points (10).
“I think everybody else is doing their job and I’m being that guy that’s not helping out. I don’t want to be that guy,” Chalmers told reporters after the Game 3, per CBS Sports.
