San Antonio Spurs @ Miami Heat 9PM (ET) ABC
(San Antonio Leads 3-2)
With the Spurs on the cusp of finals glory, the Miami Heat must pull out all the stops if they want to send this series to a game 7. Currently the Heat are an astonishing 7-0 on games after a loss. Lebron and Co. seem to know how to get it done when its all on the line. The real question though is if the Heat can win back to back games, something they haven’t done this postseason.Although these stats look very good from afar, don’t count out the veteran Spurs. With the insert of Ginobili into the starting lineup, the Spurs have add the extra offensive spark they need to keep the Heat guessing on defense. If the Heat want to tie up the series they must play with the same physical pressure and heart as they did in game 4 otherwise the Spurs franchise will be a perfect 5-0 in the NBA finals. For the Spurs, keep the offensive pressure up for 4 qtrs with Green, Parker, and Ginobili as well as find a way to limit the big 3 to mediocre performances. Finally, this game will come down to, as it has every game in this series, defensive intensity and “superstar” play. With the current trend pointing to Miami now and the 7-0 post loss stat, I am going against my typical behavior and reflecting back on games 1 and 2 where the high spread favored the dog and taking the points.
