Preview of Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final


By Andy Simancas

The Heat and Pacers will continue their battle tomorrow night at the America Airlines Arena in beautiful Downtown Miami.
The Pacers defeated the Heat 99-92,as they tied up the best of seven at two games apiece.
I will not talk about the officiating but some weird calls were made in favor of both teams, but when you look at why Miami lost the game it’s simple shooting 39% from the field is not going to get it done.
Chris Bosh shooting 1-6 from the field and seven points is not going to get the job done.
When you look at the way is which Lebron and Dwyane played yesterday it was just average a combine 13-33 from the field and that was not enough for Miami.

When you look at Roy Hibbert 10-16 shooting 23 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Lance Stephenson 9-15 shooting with 20 points and the most surprising performance was from Paul George 4-10 shooting with 12 points.
Also the Pacers shot from the field 50% looking ahead to Game five the momentum has shifted towards Indiana.

Miami needs to make adjustments, for example the Heat needs to involve Chris Bosh more offensively 1-6 shooting is not going to get the job done. Also, Ray Allen 2-7 shooting from three point range is not going to get the jobs done and he really needs to start knocking those down, because when he does Miami is hard to beat. The Heat need to grab more rebounds which is hard because of the Indiana Pacers front court size, but it qis not an impossible task. Miami needs to start fast in the beginning of the game and not wait until mid first quarter to start playing harder. When you look at Game five of the Eastern Conference Finals, Miami can’t even give Indiana the confidence that they can win again at the America Airlines Arena.

How will the big three for Miami play?
Will we see that evil stare of Lebron James that we witness in Game six of the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals against Boston.
A lot of questions need to be answer and they will be answer tomorrow night at 8:30 pm.
