Heat vs Spurs finals daily
I'm watching all the trending on the social media and other sites worrying about the Miami Heat losing to the Spurs in game one. So why worry? When you look at the last two championships the Miami Heat won, The Heat lost Game one.
Why do I think the Heat is a stronger team? The Heat is a team that has plenty of offensive weapons but more importantly, the Heat has players with a lot of heart, drive, tenecity and too much pride to give in to what appears to be a short term case of weariness. They come back time and time again with fierce aggression and brilliant performances.
Yes I agree the San Antonio Spurs are a team you must admire and should respect. They are a team that knows how to win championships and have won more NBA Titles over the last 15 years than any other NBA team. However, asking this team to compete with the lively Miami Heat in a seven game series and not grow tired and weary is quite a lot to ask.
How do you beat the Spurs? Its no secret. Stop Tony Parker and its lights out. Attack Tony Parker , make him work, get him in foul trouble and deny him the lane. The other option is to contain Parker and stop Ginobli and or Duncan. I am guessing that coach Spoelstra is focusing on stopping Tony Parker and establishing a running game or at lleast an up-tempo game that gets Heat players lots of “touches” without the turnovers.
The Heat players and coach also know that they MUST finish strong on both offense and defense. I'm sure they understand that they must be in attack mode in the last 5 minutes of every game, and attack the rim one just about every possession; attack the ball and clog the passing lanes on defense. Hinder passes to Duncan and get rebounds.
This is a wonderful series to watch and to enjoy. Don't despair Heat fans. Even if the go down two-zero, they will still be a powerful opponent capable of pull this series out and winning another championship. If they don't, the Spurs should be congratulated because they are class team with a brilliant coach and a talented group of veteran players who will have earned it. I don't know anybody that does not like the Spurs. Enjoy the series and be sure to provide your feedback!!
