3. What do the Spurs need to do to beat the Miami Heat?
DJ: They can’t let the Heat’s defense get to them. Manu Ginobli was a mess, Tim Duncan had a 3-13 shooting, and Tony Parker was a non-factor. The Spurs started getting frustrated late in the third quarter, which was one of the many reasons why the game was blown open in the fourth quarter.
Kris: They have do (or try to replicate) what Indiana did, which is kill the Heat on the boards. Chris Bosh is the tallest player on the Heat, but has just 3 double-digit rebounding games this postseason.
Justen: Stop the best player in the world, LeBron James.
Ehsan: Protect the ball. They cannot allow the Heat’s defense to beat them as badly as they did in that second half run.
4. Give me one bold prediction for Game 3.
DJ: The Heat win. The Spurs will make it a game, but after what the Heat did in Game 2, it’ll change their whole mentality and confidence level for the rest of the series.
Kris: LeBron goes off for 30+ points in a Heat win.
Justen: Mario Chalmers stays hot and drops 15.
Ehsan: Mike Miller drops 4 threes and grabs 6 rebounds. His play keeps Battier out of the rotation.
