Miami's 3-point shotmaking has seemingly regressed back to their regular season mean.
Game 5 big difference was fts and rebs. Vs Milw Heat won gm 4 even when shooting 36% heck they won gm 4 (vs NY) at 33%! Even when shooting at regular season ave Mia can find ways to win so let's have that W any which way they can. Go Heat!!
PS. Wouldn't mind if they make 20 3s today lol
At home they must do this or Jimmy and bam will have to take almost 18 each and hit a high percentage of them.We are 4 and 0 at home so far in the playoffs and must continue our run.Stay out of NYC msg.go heat and kill thibs.thugs.They are going
Lng shot making, especially the three, is one of the most impotant factor in any game and its amazingly variable. Almost every pro team has about five games a year when they are making everything. In these games that team is close to unbeatable. Conversely, teams have games where noone is hitting and you almost always lose. The rest of the games fall somewhere in between.
The Celtics, in game five vs the Sixers, had one of their awful shooting games where only Brown was making anything for two thirds of the game. The likelihood of that happening again is very low and when the Celtcs just are shooting average they will usually beat the Sixers so I pick them in game seven.
For the Heat, there are nights when some combination of Strus, Caleb, or Vincent, or now Duncan again, is sinking their shots. Love, if you watch, seldom seems to hit a high percentage, but even if he hits 33%, it helps. So, we kind of need two of those four to hit a good percentage, with some small contributions from Jimmy or Kyle outside too. The likelihood is we will get enough from them as a group to get by. So, its very likely our fate will be decided by three point percentages.
Go heat win this game go to east coast finals.
