Can anyone confirm?
Not sure, but I hope so. Throughout the playoffs, when it was necessary, Brooks has made great adjustments. Hopefully the trend continues, because imo, tonight is a must win.
The longer this series drags on, the greater our chances are of winning. We have the younger, fresher legs and need to play that to our advantage. We need to get out and run, protect the ball, win the battle of the boards, and keep Miami off the line.
I'm borderline confident, borderline nervous. Hopefully they come out strong and steal this first game, because otherwise, things could get a little tough. I expect a strong showing after a close loss, and a win should they play to their strengths and not blow the first quarter for the 4th straight game.
