Eastern Conference Semifinals
Turns out, the Miami Heat can beat the Brooklyn Nets.
Dwyane Wade hardly thinks the regular-season series between Brooklyn and Miami was meaningless.
Jarome Iginla and James Neal each scored twice and the Pittsburgh Penguins routed the Ottawa Senators 7-3 on Wednesday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinal series.
LeBron James scored 27 points and the Miami Heat nearly matched a franchise record for points allowed in a playoff game, pounding the listless and short-handed Chicago Bulls 88-65 on Monday night to take a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Miami Heat find themselves in a position they’re not quite used to in the last two years, behind in a NBA playoffs series. The Heat collapsed against the Chicago Bulls in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals and now must regroup in a hurry.
Miami Heat superstar forward LeBron James has come through with some incredible performances thus far in the playoffs, but he may be saving his best for last.
It almost was a game of anything you can do I can do better between the Miami Heat’s best two players, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James, during the closeout game of the Eastern Conference semifinals.
The Miami Heat return to the court in Indianapolis Thursday night hoping to build off the last six quarters they’ve played in which they’ve completely destroyed the Indiana Pacers.
Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals between Miami and Indiana was one of the most physical in the 2012 NBA playoffs. But Larry Bird said the Indiana Pacers were “soft” in Game 5 and his team is taking it to heart.
The Miami Heat came into Game 5 looking to make a statement that they were still the team to beat in the Eastern Conference. By the end of Game 5, that statement was loud and clear.
