It seems like the Heat and Spurs played game one a month ago. Yes the NBA stretches out the NBA finals more than any other sports championship. The focus obviously is on how the Heat will respond amid a fourth quarter collapse in Game One. The questions surrounding the Big Three’s stars besides Lebron James continue to feed the media.

On Sunday’s free play we will focus on the first half line total. It is at 92 points, and was at that mark almost every game in the Heat/Pacers series. Pretty much every game it sailed under the first half total. Indiana missed a lot of easy layups in first halves and did not get to the free throw line nearly as much as San Antonio does.

That can be traced back to point guard play, which Indiana did not really have in George Hill. Tony Parker is as elite a point guard the game has, and his bread and butter comes in the playoffs.

With the Heat expected to come out gunning and the veterans of the Spurs digging down to try and keep in game two, I expect the first half to be sail over the total of 92
