The Heat were crushed by the Spurs when LeBron James and Dwyane Wade were on the court together in the Finals, but they survived. The Spurs are better this time around, says Tom Haberstroh. Can Wade's health be the difference?
The Thunder have been here before, down 2-0 against the Spurs in the Western Conference finals. They won that series in six. Tom Haberstroh three reasons the Thunder won't catch lightning in a bottle twice.
The Heat still haven't figured out how to neutralize Roy Hibbert, who turns into Dwight Howard against the defending champs. But rather than turn to Udonis Haslem, Chris Bosh's 3-point shooting holds the key, writes Tom Haberstroh.
With two MVP candidates on the squad, it's Jamal Crawford who leads the Clippers in usage rate this postseason. And it's killing them. It's time to return to the Chris Paul and Blake Griffin show, writes Tom Haberstroh.
Tom Haberstroh writes that the Miami Heat have quietly shed their offensive image and now increasingly go to the low post. In fact, both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade rank as two of the most effective post-up weapons in the league.
