How Miami Wins

Miami needs to score a lot of points if they want to win. The Heat rank 11th in the league in scoring per game at 103.4 points per game. The Heat also need to box out and grab the rebound. The Heat rank dead last in the league in rebounding. They average 43.5 per game. The final thing the Heat need to do is limit their turnovers. They rank 15th in the league in turnovers with 14.8 per game.

 

How Indiana Wins

Indiana will win the game if they keep playing great defense. They are the best defensive team in the league. Their opponents only score an average of 91.8 points per game and that ranks 1st. The Pacers opponents only shoot an average of 34.2% from 3 point range and that percentage is ranked 3rd in the league. The Pacers also need to keep blocking shots. They rank 4th in the league in shot blocking as they block an average of 5.7 per game.

 

My Prediction

The Heat want to go out and score a lot of points. While the Pacers want to make this a low scoring defensive battle. Whichever team can play to their style will have the best chance in winning.

I think that the game is low scoring like the Pacers want. I think that the Pacers slow down Miami’s offense. I think that home court advantage helps and the Pacers get the win.

Final Score

Indiana: 97
Miami: 91
