The Heat look to close out the series and head to their 4th straight finals.

The Miami Heat are a game away from advancing to their 4th straight NBA Finals, a feat that hasn't been accomplished since the Celtics of the 1980s (per Zach Lowe). They'll have that chance tonight as they face off the Indiana Pacers in Indianapolis.

LeBron James has managed to "figure out" the Pacers' stingy defense, and has had a great series, even despite Lance Stephenson's trash talk-featured defensive methods. Teams aren't able to effectively stop LeBron, it rarely happens. Indiana will need to have a few players (not just Paul George) to get hot.


Expected Lineups

Dwyane Wade
LeBron James

Chris Bosh

Pacers

Has Mark Jackson said "Mama, there goes that man!" yet? Why do I care about that so much? I'll get back to you on that.
