Jeremy Conn: Eastern Conference Finals…
The Eastern Conference Finals feel like they are already over and we will see the Heat take on the Spurs for the NBA Championship. Game 5 was a close game until Lebron James told his teammates to get on his back. Lebron went off in the second half to lead his team to a game 5 victory.
Now for game 6 they will head back to Indiana where the Pacers will look to stay alive. If you look at the way the Series has gone thus far, it would leave you to believe the Pacers would win this game. The Pacers clearly have the advantage inside with Roy Hibbert and David West. But the Heat seem to have an advantage everywhere else. Nobody can guard Lebron and Chris Bosh presents too many match-up problems with the Pacers defenders.
It would be interesting to see the Heat and Spurs go at it in the Finals. Eric Spoelstra would be totally out-coached by Popovich. There does seem to be an advantage for the Heat as far as personal goes, but the Spurs are very intelligent and shoot the ball extremely well.
