The NBA Playoffs 2014 resumed last Saturday evening after a very unexpected 48-hour pause at the peak of the playoffs series. At the American Airlines Arena in Miami the Heat welcomed Indiana Pacers for Game 3 unveiling a highly possible on-track to conference victory if the team remains focus heading to Game 4.
Some of game highlights we can mention are facts such as a new rivalry between Indiana’s guard Lance Stephenson and Miami’s LeBron James. Stephenson has down LeBron to no more than 26 points per game and this brings up a very interesting scenario on court when they meet.
“To me, I think it’s a sign of weakness,” Stephenson said. “He never used to say anything to me. I always used to be the one who said, ‘I’m going to do something to get you mad.’ Now he’s trying to do it to me. So I feel like it’s a weakness. I feel like I’m doing something right because I’m getting under his skin, but I’ve definitely got to keep stepping up to the plate and be more aggressive when he does that.”
The following is a short video on Game 3 action: http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/recap?gameId=400558916
The Heat managed to win Game 3 over the Pacers for a final score of 99 -87 as both contenders head to Game 4 which will be taking place at the Heat home grounds. The experts say Monday´s game should not be a “must-win” for the Pacers, but it´s very close and they should be 100% focus to overcome Miami especially now that Miami leads the series 2 – 1.
“We’re pretty upbeat,” Pacers forward David West said. “We don’t get down on ourselves. The next game is a different game.”
On the other hand, on Sunday night the Western Conference game between San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma Thunder delivered great action as Oklahoma did not miss out on their chance to overcome the Spurs managing a win and final score of 106 to 97.
The night started as usually with San Antonio as the favorite leading the series, but Oklahoma Serge Ibaka´s return to the court really made a big difference and scoring 15-points, grabbing 7 rebounds and blocking 4 shots. Ibaka was able to get his team´s hopes up again in the race to the conference championship title.
This evening the action continues with Game 3 as the Pacers face the Heat more one time in Miami. The most current betting odds place the Heat as the favorite to win at -7 o -105u -105, while for tomorrow´s game 3 between the Spurs and the Thunder, Oklahoma City is favorite at -2 o -105u -105.
