1. What’s the probability that the Heat win Game 7?
Kris: I think the Heat have a 55% chance of winning Game 7. The series has literally gone back and forth, as neither team has won two games in a row. Although the Pacers won the last game, the Heat have home court advantage and have to be considered the favorite to take Game 7.
Eric: The Miami Heat are 6-2 (.750) at home during the 2013 NBA Playoffs. With that being said, there’s an 80% chance that the Heat will be 7-2 after tonight.
DJ: Very likely. When Team A is better than Team B, it takes a near-perfect effort for Team B to knock off Team A. The Pacers have played near-perfect in three of the six games of this series thus far. I can’t see them doing so for a fourth time in Game 7.
2. Who is the Game 7 MVP, and why?
Kris: Game 7’s MVP will be the NBA’s regular season MVP – LeBron James. LeBron James has to set the tone for this game, whether it’s attacking from a scoring standpoint or getting Bosh and Wade involved. He’s been the only player to show up in every game this series. He’s got to do it one more time and bring the others with him.
Eric: LeBron James will be the MVP in tonight’s game. I’m predicting at least 30 points, 10 rebounds and 8 assists. James has reverted back to his “Cleveland” days and he will have a huge game tonight. If LeBron has to “fly solo” tonight, I expect a captivating performance.
DJ: Lebron James. Who else would it be? Lebron has carried this team throughout the postseason, and barring a miracle, he’ll do so once again tonight.
3. Give me your prediction for Game 7.
Kris: The Heat supporting cast finally shows up to back up LeBron and the Heat prevail.
Eric: Miami Heat cannot lose this game — and they won’t. Heat win 104-97
DJ: The Heat win. Lebron James has another excellent performance. Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and company give Lebron enough support to finally finish off the Pacers in seven games.
