After Tying Series, Heat Ready to Take 2-1 Series Lead Saturday
Heat the more experienced team with adversity
Miami has been here many times before, which makes them the more experienced team when it comes to dealing with adversity in the playoffs. After dropping the opening game of the series, the Heat rebounded with a nice win in game two to tie the series at one game apiece. Now, as they move to Florida for games three and four, the Heat are in excellent position to take the lead in the series.
Pacers want to make a statement on the road
Nothing would please Pacers more than to win game three on the road over the Heat to give Indiana a 2-1 lead in the East Finals. This series has all the makings of going the distance, with each game tightly contested from start to finish. Paul George was diagnosed with a concussion following game two this week, so his status for game three is still up in the air right now. The Heat believe George will be ready for game three though.
The excitement of the NBA postseason continues to build with each passing game, so game three of the East Finals should not be a disappointment. The Heat and the Pacers meet in Florida with the series tied at one as we place our bets over at Sportsbook.ag on Saturday. We like Miami at home to take the 2-1 series lead as we drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the -7 (-110) spread for the Heat.
