May 14, 2016
Miami Heat tied the Eastern Conference semifinal series 3-3 this Friday, May 13, by beating the Toronto Raptors 103 to 91; with this result we get to enjoy a 7th game on Sunday, May 15 at 3:30pm EST at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto./89*b1h xc|
Miami’s point guard Goran Dragic scored a postseason career-high 30 points, seven rebounds and four assists and just two turnovers, while star guard Dwayne Wade added 22 points. For the Raptors, point guard Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan combined for 59 points but still came up short, Lowry scored 36 points, four rebounds, three assists, while DeRozan was responsible for 23 points, four rebounds, two assists.
Miami did what it had to do, they needed to force a seventh game or say good bye to the chance of going to the East Conference finals; however, they don’t have an easy road ahead as the Raptors hold the home advantage on Sunday.
Toronto’s home advantage vs. Miami’s momentum
The winner of this Sunday’s game will head to Cleveland for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference finals on Tuesday night; and although the logical bet is the Toronto Raptors after this last game it makes you wonder if they have what it takes to pull through to the finals; Raptors can’t just depend on Lowry and DeRozan (who has an injured right thumb), they need to carefully choose their lineup for this next game and the whole team needs to step up and work on sustaining offensive rhythm. Miami Heat needs to keep up the pressure as they did this last game and if Dragic has another great night, they may be able to pull it off and get the ticket to Cleveland.
A seventh game to bet on, not bad at all, perhaps Toronto makes it harder than it needs to be, but at the end it’s another NBA game to bet on and a chance to win big. Odds have Toronto Raptors as a favorite at -4 ½ and the line for the total stands at 189 ½. 52% of the bets at this point are on Miami Heat +4 ½ . Our prediction? Despite the fact that Miami has fought a good fight and is clearly motivated at this point, Toronto is playing at home and has the obligation to win.
