Miami Heat Take 2-1 Lead Over Thunder Into Game 4

The Miami Heat appear to be getting stronger as the NBA playoffs go on and are now just two wins away from the NBA title. They host the Oklahoma City Thunder for Game 4 on Tuesday night with the odds just released.

Miami is a 3½-point home favorite with a total of 191½. ABC will go back to the later weeknight start time of 9:00 p.m. (ET) from AmericanAirlines Arena.

The series odds have also been updated and Miami is a 200 favorite with Oklahoma City at +170. Remember it was the Thunder who were the solid 170 chalk before the Finals began with the homecourt advantage.

Coach Erik Spoelstra’s team is suddenly in command of the series (2-1) after taking the last two games. The most recent was the first played in South Beach, 91-85 as 4-point favorites on Sunday night. LeBron James (29 points) was held under 30 for the first time this series, but continues to make plays down the stretch to silence his critics.

Dwyane Wade added 25 points, although shooting just 8-of-22 from the field. He has been aggressive going to the rim and was 9-of-11 from the free throw line. The Heat had a 35-24 advantage in free throw attempts overall, and that’s not likely to change much the next two games at home where they tend to get the calls.

Miami is now 9-2 SU and 8-3 ATS at home in the playoffs.

The Thunder certainly had their chance to win last game. They had a 9-point lead (65-56) with 3:31 left in the third quarter before getting outscored 13-2 the rest of the period. Having to sit Kevin Durant with his fourth foul was a big part of the reason.

Oklahoma City probably does have a beef about the officiating, but can only blame itself for shooting 62.5 percent from the line (15-of-24), Conversely, Miami knocked down 31-of-35 (88.6 percent) from the charity stripe. Free throw shooting was supposed to be a solid advantage for the Thunder.

Durant (31 PPG) has played great as expected this series and Russell Westbrook (24.3 PPG) has been more good than bad, despite shooting 41.3 percent. The person who needs to consistently step up is James Harden (11.7 PPG), who has been held to single digits twice this series, including nine last game on 2-of-10 shooting.

Coach Scott Brooks’ doesn’t have any other player besides the ‘Big 3’ that can be counted on for double-digits, so Harden needs to be much closer to the guy who averaged 16.8 PPG in the regular season and 17.6 PPG in the first three rounds.

Note the 176 combined points scored last game went way ‘under’ the 193-point total. That’s the big reason why the total on Tuesday has dropped 1½ points to 191½.

The Thunder’s 85 points was only the second time they failed to reach 90 in their 18 playoff games. The ‘over’ was 5-1 in their previous six road games (scoring 103.2 PPG) and 1-0-1 in the first two games in Oklahoma City.

Game 5 on Thursday will stay in Miami as part of the three consecutive home games. James is hoping that it’s a closeout situation and a shot at his elusive first NBA championship.

Game 4, Thunder-Heat

June 19, 2012

The Heat has buried their Game 1 meltdown as Miami owns a 2-1 series lead over Oklahoma City following Sunday's victory over the Thunder. The NBA Finals continue on Tuesday night at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, as the Heat goes for their third consecutive win in a playoff series for just the second time this postseason. Meanwhile, OKC looks to get on track after squandering a double-digit second half advantage in Game 3.

Miami rallied past Oklahoma City, 91-85 to cover as four-point favorites, while the game comfortably stayed 'under' the total of 193. The Heat nearly gave away the lead in the final minutes as the Thunder reeled off a 6-0 run to cut the deficit to 86-85. OKC went scoreless in the last 90 seconds, while the Heat knocked down five of six free throws to help Miami backers cash.

However, if you bet on the Thunder in the first half, lightning definitely struck thanks to a Russell Westbrook three-pointer in the final seconds. The Heat didn't cash first half tickets as Erik Spoelstra's team led 47-46, as the Thunder covered as 2 ½-point underdogs. The 'dog is a perfect 3-0 ATS in the opening half through the first three games of this series, while the first half 'under' has hit in consecutive games.

After the Thunder built a 64-54 advantage with 4:33 remaining in the third quarter, the wheels fell off the wagon. Miami used a 15-3 run to grab a two-point cushion at the end of three, while Westbrook and Kevin Durant were languishing on the OKC bench during this spurt. Durant scored only four points in the final quarter, as the Heat received 15 total points from LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh in the last seven minutes to take a 2-1 series edge for the second straight Finals.

Oklahoma City has dropped consecutive games for just the fifth time all season, as the Thunder owned just one losing skid of three games (April 2-6). The last time the Thunder lost back-to-back contests came in the Western Conference Finals, as OKC trounced San Antonio, 102-82 as four-point favorites. In the only other instance that Scott Brooks' club looked to snap a two-game losing streak on the road, the Thunder fell at Indiana, 103-98 in early April.

However, the Thunder have compiled a 2-7 SU and 3-6 ATS road record this season against teams off consecutive victories. One of those covers came in James Harden's three-pointer at the buzzer in the opening game of the Western Conference Finals, as the Thunder narrowly cashed in a three-point defeat. Miami won 10 of 13 games this season against clubs off back-to-back setbacks, including a 5-0 SU and 2-3 ATS mark at home (four of the five wins came against non-playoff competition).

Prior to last year's NBA Finals, teams that won Game 3 with the series tied at 1-1 (in the 2-3-2 format) ended up claiming the championship on 11 of 11 occasions. However, the streak came to a crashing halt last June when Miami failed to win the title against Dallas in this situation after the Heat grabbed Game 3 in Texas. Game 4 has proven to be pivotal to determine a champion recently as five of the last six winners of this game hoisted the Larry O'Brien trophy (Celtics in 2010 the only team not to win it all).

From the player props perspective, Sportsbook.ag has listed a handful of these bets for tonight's contest. Durant's over/under for points is set at 29 (-115 each way), while Westbrook's total points and rebounds are also 29 (shaded to 'over' at -125). For the first time in the series, Durant was limited to below 30 points in Game 3 as the league's scoring champion put up just 25 in the loss. Westbrook combined for 35 points and rebounds in each of the first two games, but was held to 19 points and five boards in Game 3.

James looks to continue his playoff domination as Sportsbook.ag lists the total point for the three-time MVP tonight at 31 (-115 each way). The Heat superstar has busted the 31-point mark only once in the NBA Finals, but the other two games he tallied 30 and 29 points. Wade's total points and rebounds sits at 29 ½ (-115 each way), as the former Finals MVP busted that number in each of the last two wins for the Heat.

VegasInsider.com's Chris David says instead of looking at the side tonight, another option is taking the series price, “If you believe OKC can get at least one game in Miami, then why not check out the adjusted series price of plus-170. The Thunder are plus-140 on the money line for Game 4, so you’re getting an extra 30 cents on each unit wagered and you can get out of it too by coming back with Miami if it faces elimination. If OKC gets the win tonight, it’s a three-game series with the Thunder holding the home-court advantage. Or you could do the opposite and take Miami at minus-200 odds (Bet $100 to win $50) and hope the Heat win two of the next four games."

From the totals perspective, David believes the number is dipping due to the poor shooting in Game 3, “Total players who took the ‘under’ got a nice wire-to-wire winner on Sunday. There were some chances for overtime late but in the end, but the pace was too slow. Despite getting 46 points from the free throw line neither team could buy a bucket and the foul trouble for the Thunder kept them out of a rhythm all night. The number for Game 3 opened 192 ½ and has been bouncing back and forth between 191 and 192."

"The 85 points that OKC put up in Game 3 was the second-lowest number it’s posted in the playoffs. The Thunder never scored less than 96 points in their seven other road playoff games, which makes the output on Sunday seem even more surprising. The two clubs combined for 13 and 15 shots from 3-point land in the two games at OKC, but only eight 3-pointers on Sunday. If you add an extra 18 points to Game 3, the ‘over’ has a good shot to come in."

The number dropped from four to 3 ½ tonight, as the Heat goes for their third consecutive cover in this series. The game tips off at 9:00 PM EST and can be seen nationally on ABC.

Thunder try to even up NBA Finals on Tuesday


NBA FINALS GAME PREVIEW

No. 2 OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER

at No. 2 MIAMI HEAT


NBA Finals
Game 4 - Miami leads series 2-1
Tip-off: Tuesday, 9:05 p.m. ET
Line: Miami -3½, Total: 192½

After a stunning comeback win in Game 3, the Heat try to take a commanding 3-1 series lead over the Thunder when the teams meet again on Tuesday night in Miami.

Although the Heat were able to erase a 10-point, third-quarter deficit to win 91-85, this game was more about the Thunder giving it away than Miami taking it. Oklahoma City, the league’s best free-throw shooting team at 80.7%, finished 15-for-24 (62.5%) from the line including seven misses in the second half. Kevin Durant was in foul trouble all night and was shut down by LeBron James in the fourth quarter, making just 2-of-6 FG. James was once again his team’s offensive star too, with 29 points and 14 rebounds. Teammate Dwyane Wade missed 10 shots in the first half, but still managed to produce 25 points, seven rebounds and seven assists. Can the Thunder tie up this series on Tuesday? For the answer, connect to NBA Playoffs Best Bets for all the Expert picks for every playoff game during the 2012 postseason. Since May 18, StatFox Dave is on a stellar 20-7-1 ATS (74%) run, going 10-2 ATS since May 31, with a whopping 10-1-1 mark in his past 12 Best Bets.

On Tuesday, Miami was somehow able to overcome its 38% FG (33% FG in the second half) and 15 turnovers, including nine in the fourth quarter alone. Making 31-of-35 free throws was certainly a boost for Miami, as was Oklahoma City’s six turnovers in the final period. Poor shooting was a theme for Game 3, as the Thunder shot 42.9% FG, including 4-of-18 from three-point range, while the Heat made a pitiful 18% of their shots from outside of 10 feet. With Sunday’s home win, they are now 37-7 SU (84%) at AmericanAirlines Arena with a 25-18-1 ATS mark (58%). In the 2012 playoffs, Miami is 9-2 SU (8-3 ATS) at home in these playoffs, scoring 98.6 PPG and giving up only 87.2 PPG. The Thunder are still the NBA’s third-best road team at 25-16 SU (61%) and are a solid 23-17-1 ATS (58%), including 5-2-1 ATS in playoff road tilts. Both teams have nearly identical records with just one day’s rest, as Miami is now 35-16 (25-26 ATS), while Oklahoma City is 34-15 (25-23-1 ATS).

Although Durant didn’t take over the fourth quarter like he had in Games 1-2 (combined 33 points in final period), he still finished with 25 points on 11-of-19 FG with six rebounds and two blocks. His five turnovers and five personal fouls hurt his team though. Reserve SG James Harden also damaged his team’s win chances by making just 2-of-10 shots including 0-for-4 from long range. Although he was held to single-digits in scoring (nine), Harden still produced six assists, six rebounds and two steals. PG Russell Westbrook clearly had his worst game of the series with 19 points (8-of-18 FG) and just four assists. In Games 1-2, Westbrook averaged 27.0 PPG and 9.0 APG. C Kendrick Perkins bounced back from a poor Game 2 (four points, minus-16 rating) with a double-double of 10 points and 12 rebounds, six coming on the offensive end. PG Derek Fisher scored nine points off the bench, but was just 3-of-8 shooting and posted a minus-9 rating. That wasn’t as bad as either starting SG Thabo Sefolosha or reserve PF Nick Collison, who each finished Game 3 with a minus-11 rating.

James is having a much better NBA Finals series than he did last year. His 30.3 PPG, 10.3 RPG and 86% FT completely dwarf his 2011 NBA Finals production of 17.8 PPG, 7.2 RPG and 60% FT. Wade, on the other hand, has seen his numbers drop significantly in this series (22.7 PPG, 41% FG, 3.7 TOPG) compared to last year’s championship series (26.5 PPG, 55% FG, 2.5 TOPG). On Sunday night, PF Chris Bosh posted his second straight double-double since being inserted back into the starting lineup, scoring 10 points (3-of-12 FG) with 11 rebounds. SF Shane Battier played 35 minutes on Sunday, but attempted only two shots, which were both successful three-point attempts. He is now an incredible 14-for-19 (74%) from the floor in the NBA Finals, which includes going 11-of-15 from downtown (73%). However, PG Mario Chalmers had another dismal shooting night (1-for-8), making him 2-for-15 from the floor (1-for-6 on threes) with a total of five points in his past two games. The Heat bench didn’t do very much again with just three field goals made, but the foursome combined to knock down all nine of their free throws, and post a +17 rating in a combined 38 minutes.

Armadillo's Write-Up

Tuesday, June 19

-- Miami led Game 1 by 18, led 16-2 in Game 2, and were up 26-20 after first quarter in Game 3, so Thunder has to play better right from the tap here. Teams down 3-1 in NBA Finals are 0-30 in series, so while this is not a must-win game, its a damn-well-better win game for OC.

-- Thunder bench dominated first two games (+51 in 145 minutes), while Miami bench was -37 in 82 minutes, but in Game 3, OC's subs were -30 in 78:00, while Miami's bench was +17 in 39:00.

-- Thunder's FG% went down, from 51.9% in Game 1, to 43% in second game, to 42.8% in Game 3, which is normal; Miami's went up from 46.2% in Game 1 up to 47.4% in Game 2, but went down to 37.8% last game, but they were 31-35 from foul line, after taking only 43 foul shots combined in first two games.

-- Miami is 18-46 from arc in three games; Battier is 11-15, rest of squad is 7-31. Battier only took two shots last game, but he made both of 'em.

-- Sefolosha/Ibaka/Perkins, OC's"Little 3" starters, went just 4-15 from floor in Game 2, after going 9-17 in Game 1- they were 8-18 last game. Harden was 2-10 from floor and played poorly in 4th quarter.

-- Thunder is 4-4 on road in playoffs; Miami is 9-2 at home. Heat is 6-2 vs spread in game following a win in same series.

-- Notice that Miami had 54-55 points at halftime in first two games; in Game 3, they only had 47, but still led by a point.

-- Over is now 6-2-1 in last nine Miami games.

-- Notice that Thunder's scoring went from 105 to 96 to 85; how do they score? Transition hoops become more scarce as a series goes on, so they better execute better in halfcourt, or else........

Thunder at Heat Game 4: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oklahoma City Thunder at Miami Heat (-3.5, 192.5)

THE STORY: For LeBron James, redemption stands just two victories away. James and the Miami Heat have a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals and can move within a win of capturing the title as they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 on Tuesday night. James has been sensational so far in the series, dominating at the offensive end while frustrating Thunder superstar Kevin Durant in the process. Durant will need to stay out of foul trouble if Oklahoma City hopes to even the best-of-seven.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, ABC, TSN

ABOUT THE THUNDER: Durant has played fewer minutes than he is accustomed to over the last two games, thanks to some rare foul issues. Durant picked up his fourth foul in the third quarter and was forced to the bench just as the Thunder appeared to be taking control of the game. Sure enough, the Heat fought back from a 10-point deficit and Durant was unable to put together yet another fourth-quarter rally as the Thunder dropped their second game in a row. "It's a tough break for us, man," said Durant, who finished with 25 points. "You know, I hate sitting on the bench, especially with fouls."

ABOUT THE HEAT: He has been called a turncoat, a prima donna and a choker - but James has managed to shrug off the haters and is putting together one of the best postseason performances in memory. He took over when the Heat needed him down the stretch, scoring 29 points and adding 14 rebounds. James has put together 13 straight games of 25-plus points so far in the postseason, looking as strong as he did in capturing the regular-season MVP award. "Last year I didn't make enough game-changing plays, and that's what I kind of pride myself on," he said. "I didn't do that last year in the Finals."

TRENDS:
- Over is 9-3-1 in Heat's last 13 overall.
- Heat are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 home games.
- Thunder are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 games overall.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Of the last 12 NBA Finals tied 1-1 after two games, the team winning Game 3 has gone on to capture the title 11 times. The only exception: Last year's championship, when Miami was up 2-1 against Dallas but lost the final three games.

2. The Thunder have connected on just 36 percent of their shots from 15 feet or further. They shot 45 percent from that range in the conference finals against San Antonio.

3. Heat F Shane Battier has 11 3-pointers through the first three games, tying Rashard Lewis for the most through three games in Finals history.

Armadillo's Write-Up

Thursday, June 21

Oklahoma City @ Miami (3-1)

-- Either way, Oklahoma City is going home after this game; the question is whether they're making Miami go back with them. Teams down 3-1 in NBA Finals are 0-30 in series, so steep hill for the Thunder to climb, but if they win this game, at least they go home to play Games 6-7.

-- Thunder is 4-5 on road in the playoffs; Miami is 10-2 at home. Heat is 7-2 vs spread in game following a win in same series.

-- Over the last 16:00 of Game 4, Thunder players other than Durant or Westbrook went 0-7 from the floor. Sefolosha keeps getting open looks on arc and he keeps missing. He's not open by accident; Miami prefers that he shoots, because he's not a great shooter.

-- Oklahoma City beat the Spurs because their role players played great, but Harden is in a funk, going 2-10 including a miss on a breakaway as he wasn't confident enough to shoot from the right with his right hand. If he doesn't regain his form in this game, the season is over.

-- Thunder has actually played better in Games 3-4, they just didn't win; their FG% went up to 48.8% last game, as Westbrook ran amuck with 43 points, seven boards, five assists.

-- Miami is 28-72 from arc in four games; Battier is 12-19, rest of squad is 16-53.

-- Over is now 7-2-1 in last ten Miami games.

-- As far as Lebron's cramps, not sure if they'll be a factor in this game. They got away with him not playing much at end of Game 4, though it was his 3-pointer than put them ahead for good.

-- The biggest question is impossible to quantify; does Oklahoma City believe they can win? They've come close but haven't finished well this series. If they can steal this game, they get home court advantage back, but someone other than Durant/Westbrook has to step up and do it.

Thunder at Heat Game 5: What bettors need to know
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Oklahoma City Thunder at Miami Heat (-3, 193.5)

THE STORY: Miami Heat superstar LeBron James has had to deal with critics, fan backlash and his own impossibly high standards throughout his career. Tuesday night, he overcame a brand new challenge as leg cramps left him in severe pain in the waning moments of a 102-96 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder. James is expected to be in the lineup Thursday as he aims for his first career NBA title when the Heat entertain the Thunder in Game 5.

TV: 9 p.m. ET, ABC, TSN

ABOUT THE THUNDER: A 43-point performance by Russell Westbrook still wasn't enough to lift the Thunder to victory, leaving them needing three straight wins to secure their first NBA championship. No team in league history has ever rallied from a 3-1 deficit to prevail, but superstar Kevin Durant says his team won't quit until the Heat clinch the title. "We're going to keep fighting," he said. "Frustrating to lose like that. It was just frustrating. But we're going to keep fighting, man. That's how we've been since I got here. We're going to keep fighting and just take it a possession and a game at a time."

ABOUT THE HEAT: Miami fans were spooked when guard Dwyane Wade got up favoring his back after hitting the court hard earlier in the night. He was fine, but James was not after falling during a drive to the basket and limping around until he was finally subbed out. James suffered cramping in both legs that limited his effectiveness, but he still knocked down a pivotal 3-pointer and doesn't expect to be hobbled in the Heat's first crack at a series win over Oklahoma City. "You had to play with an intensity that you had nothing left," Heat coach Eric Spoelstra said. "He didn't. He was playing at an incredible pace."

TRENDS:

- Heat are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 home games.
- Over is 7-2-1 in Heat's last 10 overall.
- Thunder are 7-3 ATS in the last 10 meetings in Miami.

BUZZER BEATERS:

1. Westbrook joined Rick Barry as the only players 23 or younger to score at least 43 points in a Finals game. Barry reached the mark three times.

2. James has scored at least 15 points in the paint in all four games of the Finals. He didn't reach that total in any of the six Finals games last year against Dallas.

3. Thunder G James Harden has a bruised left hand but is expected to remain in the lineup for Game 5. Harden is shooting just 35 percent in the Finals.
