NBA Betting: Miami Heat to take series lead in Chi-Town

10May 2013



With Betfair Live Video covering all the action from the Conference semi-finals, Nick Shiambouros casts his eye over two pivotal games taking place on Friday night...


Miami Heat @ Chicago Bulls

Series Tied 1-1


The Miami Heat crushed the Chicago Bulls 115-78 to even the series late on Wednesday night. Miami took Chicago apart with some outstanding play in the second half. LeBron James scored 19 points and had nine assists.


The Heat were much more physical in this game, and sent a clear message to Chicago that they won't be pushed around in this series.


Game 3 takes place in Chicago on Friday night.


It has been rumored that Derrick Rose will finally make an appearance for the Bulls in this vital game. Rose has been out of action for almost a year and an appearance on Friday night would certainly ignite the home crowd.


Apparently Rose has been cleared to play for the past few weeks, but has decided to sit out his return until now.  I hope he decides to play and give his team some much needed support.


Despite the anticipated return of superstar guard Derrick Rose for Chicago, I must favour Miami in this pivotal game. They have all the momentum and appear to be back to their very best.



San Antonio Spurs @ Golden State Warriors

Series Tied 1-1


The Golden State Warriors beat the San Antonio Spurs 100-91 with a superb display on Wednesday night. The Warriors proved they were mentally tough buy making some huge buckets down the stretch.


Klay Thompson scored 34 points along with Stephen Curry who had 22.


The Warriors have looked by far the better team in this series. Point-guard Stephen Curry has torched the San Antonio defence with an incredible display of athleticism and skill. Curry has played a lot of minutes, but appears to be handling the physical demands of playoff basketball very well.


I think the Spurs are in huge trouble and Golden State can take control of the series by winning Game 3.
