The Heat lost their latest game by five and their leader was not impressed with the effort down the stretch of the game.
“This was one of those wins we were looking for, where it is not necessarily going our way, where you find a way to dig and win ugly,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “And we weren’t able to do it.”
We will have to see if LeBron James can get it done against the red hot Goran Dragic who is playing angry after not being invited to the All Star game. He is definitely deserving, but will not reveal who would have picked myself. Would go with the Heat to cover the spread (-4), but that is mainly because think James will be playing angry after a particularly off game for the MVP candidate. Think Kevin Durant has firm control of the driver’s seat in that race though, and it will be hard to deny him if they end up winning the West with the Heat finishing as probably the two seed in the East this season. Man, having that game 7 at home is so crucial, but then there is always the possibility that the series might only go five or six games.
Lots more previews coming tonight folks so strap on your seatbelts and get ready for a bumpy ride.
