The Miami Heat own a two-game lead in the best of seven series against their divisional rivals. Both contests have Miami winning by double digits. President and General Manager Pat Riley is showing why he is among the best in the Association. The organization trusts Riley to pull the string on a deal whenever it helps the franchise. Most recently the acquisition of Joe Johnson is working to the team’s advantage. The former Brooklyn Nets star scored eight points in the game two victory. The emergence of Luol Deng in the postseason is a bonus. Deng is a matchup nightmare for opponents with his long frame and athleticism. The real score for the organization is Center Hassan Whiteside. The Charlotte native bounced around from D-League to Star Status. Whiteside must continue to dominate in the post; he is the key to Miami long term success. Starting Point Guard, Goran Dragic is controlling the pace of the game and is doing a masterful job. All-Star DeWayne Wade is having fun after the departure of LeBron James.
The 2016 Charlotte Hornets finished third in the Southeast Division, behind Miami and Atlanta. All three are in the postseason. The Hornets are looking to end a playoff losing drought. Twelve in a row is the number, and Saturday could see the team winning its first postseason contest since 2002. Head Coach Steve Clifford is optimistic despite being in the hole. Charlotte has more than enough offense to even the series. Many experts thought the series would be more of a defensive battle, but Miami is pushing the ball at a fast tempo. The Hornets have their struggles in the first half of both contests. Halftime adjustments are working, but the team is too far in the hole by the start of the third quarter. Point Guard Kimba Walker is holding up and led the team with twenty-nine points in game two. It’s time for Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams to step up their play; both are capable at both ends of the floor.
Miami is 3-1 Against The Spread the last four between the teams.
The Betting Odds Over The Total are 2-0 in the first two game of the first round series.
