Miami Heat vs. Indiana Pacers
(Pacers Lead 2-1)
We’ve put up a preview of what the Pacers need to do to win this game, which is simple go out and do the same things they did in game three. This could be the game where the Pacers really drive home that nail in the Heat’s demise for this post season. It won’t be easy as I think the Heat will do anything they can do win this game as they say desperate times call for desperate measures. Roy Hibbert will need to be just as good as he was in game three, especially with his rebounding. That could be the thing to improve for the Pacers is to not allow the Heat to get to the offensive rebounds as much. There was a point where it felt like the Heat got three or four in a row, in the long run it didn’t matter. But I think this game ends up close, and those offensive rebounds could be the difference. I want to call for a Pacers win, but it’s going to be tough, and if they win I say it’s a 5 point win or less.
San Antonio Spurs vs. Los Angeles Clippers
(Spurs Lead 3-0)
Well if the Clippers couldn’t put the Spurs away with a 24 point lead, what in the world will it take to put down this team? I know the Clippers will have to score more than 8 points in a quarter to at least keep this close, and even then that probably won’t matter. The Spurs are just looking so impressive, I can’t seem to say it enough. I think the only thing that could hurt this team is that this is on a back to back, so who knows how Tim Duncan holds up. But I am still calling for the Spurs to put away the Clippers and continue this impressive run through the NBA Playoffs.
