We have seen it in the entire playoffs. A team goes on the road and finds a way to pull off an upset in Game 1 or Game 2 of their series, and then it comes home and ends up being favored or almost favored for no reason whatsoever. We saw it last night with Philadelphia against Boston, and the end result in that one saw the Celtics taking back home court advantage in dominating fashion. The bottom line here is that the Heat are the better team in this series, and it isn’t even close in our eyes. Indiana is a good team for sure, but even without Chris Bosh in the fold, there just isn’t anyone that is going to be dressed in home jerseys that is going to be able to figure out LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. We think that the Super Friends are going to show up in force tonight and put up about 70 points between them en route to the Heat taking back control of this series.
NBA Free Pick: Miami Heat -1
