Playoff Match Up
Heat Game 6)
The second round of the NBA playoffs is just around the corner! We
have seen some upsets and the top seeds advance, but there are some
series left that could easily go seven games and one of them is the
physical match up between the Dwyane Wade’s Miami Heat and Joe
Johnson’s Atlanta Hawks.
Atlanta Hawks @ Miami Heat Game 6
Things are really started to heat up in this series, no pun
intended. Miami is struggling with some major injury problems to
their top players including Dwyane Wade and Josh Smith of the Hawks
displayed how immature he can really be.
Coming into this match up I predicted that this series would go at
least six games with the Heat eventually advancing. That predicted
wasn’t looking all that bad until Wade started to struggle with some
The real problem with this match up is every time these two teams
step on the floor you never know which team is actually going to
show up and make a game of it. One game the Heat come in and
dominate and the next game the Hawks do the exactly the same.
At times during this series both teams have gone on big runs and
knocked the other teams out of contention, but as we approach game
six of this series things are looking very different and bad blood
is brewing between these two Eastern conference foes.
In game five the Atlanta Hawks were well ahead and had the game well
in hand in the near the end of the game with a big lead. Most teams
would take it easy and try and work the clock. The Hawks were in the
process of doing just that until there was a steal and a break away
lead by Josh Smith. Once Smith got close to the basket he attempted
to dunk the ball after putting it through his legs in the air. Not
only was it disrespectful to the Heat and embarrassing since Smith
missed the dunk, but it will be just the kind of thing that great
players like Dwyane Wade use as motivation.
Now that things are getting heated between these two teams and both
are trying to keep their playoff hopes alive game six will be an all
out battle. Dwyane Wade may be banged up, but you better believe he
will be ready to prove a point in game six in Miami. Not only did
Wade say he felt disrespected by Josh Smith’s ridiculous attempt at
a flashy dunk, but this is an elimination game and the best players
always rise to the occasion.
I think game six will be a very competitive and very physical game.
The Heat will struggle considering the injury problems, but I
wouldn’t be surprised to see Dwyane Wade go off for 40+ points and
get the win which will tie up the series and send it back to Atlanta
for a game seven.
