NBA FREE PICK: Miami Heat -1.5

NBA FREE PICK: Miami Heat -1.5

Even though the Miami Heat were unable to hold serve at home in Game 5, I believe they are still the better team in this series, especially now that Chris Bosh is back. With the season on the line, I will take my chances on LeBron James and Dwayne Wade to carry the Heat to victory tonight. James has been incredible all postseason, and I look for him to completely take over this game.

Bosh scored 9 points and grabbed seven rebounds in just 14 minutes, and I thought he needed to play more down the stretch. I expect that to be the case tonight. There's no reason to hold Bosh back in this one. Not only will he help provide a spark offensively, but he can make things harder on Kevin Garnett.

I have a feeling we will see a similar start to last night's Spurs/Thunder game, where San Antonio came out and jumped all over Oklahoma City at home. While the Thunder were able to battle back for the win, I don't think the Celtics have enough offensive firepower.

I get the feeling the Heat take a lot of things fort granted on the basketball court. With their backs against the wall, I expect to see maximum effort getting back on defense and blocking out. Two things they can struggle to do on a consistent basis. BET THE HEAT!
