Don't want home court advantage in the finals. Take your chances with stealing a game on the road then get 3 straight at home.
As for this game, don't fall for the trap
make it 10 straight
Yeah , I love putting the pressure on the other team to defend their homecourt two times before they have to play a single game in the Heat's house.
On the flip side, I feel there's a lot of pressure on the Heat to win 2 at home then go on the road and win one of two (or preferably 2 of 2 if we lost one of our games at home).

Personally, I'm not scared of San Antonio this year. They probably don't even get out of the West, but if they do, I'm liking our chances against them if we reach the finals. And why would you be scared of OKC on the road when we beat them as the road team in the Finals?
