Behind Enemy Lines in the NBA Finals for Game 3

Yo, this is Nicky and we’re in the heat (no pun intended) of the NBA Finals. We decided to lay the under in game 1 which came through for us and as the series shifts back to San Antonio for game 3 we’re ready to get back into the trenches so let’s get to it. In game 3 I like the Spurs (-1.5 buy that hook!) to hold serve at home. This one will be highly contested as both teams are well aware that over the last 13 times a series was tied at 1, the winner of game 3 has won the NBA Title 92% of the time, with the only aberration being the Heat in 2011. I know the Heat had a great run that was a prototype on how to beat the Spurs but duplicating that feat and having SA commit so many turnovers again is highly unlikely. The Spurs are a great home team and their crowd hasn’t seen them play in almost 3 weeks. It will be a ruckus crowd and I look for them to shoot very well and force the Heat supporting cast to do so as well. Other than RayRay I don’t see that happening and LBJ looking frustrated come q4. That’s the chowda’, I’m Nicky, stay in the ring and keep your gloves up!
