The trend continued in the NBA Finals. As if anyone is surprised (I am, really).
I really thought the Miami Heat had figured out the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4. I was wrong. Big time.
The Spurs came out, as they had in Game’s 1 and 3, with a furry — offensively and defensively. The Spurs cruised to a 114-104 Game 5 win, now lead the best-of-seven series 3-2.
Let’s just cut to the chase and hit the rundown.
First up, Pop made a change to his starting lineup. Pop lineup change > Spo lineup change…
Statistically, really well.
The new golden rule – Always listen to Tony Parker.
Also, Parker was not looking good in Postgame.
On to Game 6? Vegas thinks the trend continues… advantage, Heat?
Spo doesn’t have time for our statistical analysis.
Remember that lineup change? Maybe it isn’t quite working for the Heat…
Tim Duncan, on the other hand, is.
By the way, the Heat have been here before — down 3-2 in the NBA Finals. Let’s see if they’ve learned anything.
How can you not like Danny Green, who lit up the Heat again in Game 5 while breaking the NBA Finals record with 25 three-pointers made in 38 attempts.
The matter of the fact is that the Heat now have to win the next two games. Something that they haven’t done in a very, very long time.
But what’d you expect. Has this been a good series? I can’t tell, yet.
Have I mentioned that this NBA Finals is weird? It’s been so weird!!
Last, but not least, gotta love San Antonio.
On to Game 6.
