Famous Hollywood words: It’s Showtime!  In the NBA, it is exactly that time for the defending world champion Miami Heat, who are battling the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Finals.   Indiana took the champs to OT in Game 1,  then flexed  their muscle to win Game 2 and steal the home court advantage from the Heat.  Sunday night in Game 3 at Indianapolis, Miami showed why they are champions as the BIG 3 went to work and were never really threatened at the end of the Heat’s 114 -96 clubbing of the Pacers, who came out a step slow and looked nothing like the team that played in Miami.   Expect a more aggressive effort from the Pacers this evening as the Heat holds a 2 – 1 lead with Game 4 set for tonight at Indy, and a return to South Beach on Thursday……

The San Antonio Spurs again have proven time and time again that no matter the circumstances, this team knows how to win, and knows how to close out an opponent.   Been there, done that.   Going into Game 4 down 3 – 0,  the Memphis Grizzlies already had a tall task in battling the Spurs, clearly a team that is no stranger to these NBA Playoffs.   Monday night in Memphis, they had no answer for Tony Parker, and even if Elvis WAS in the building, that still wouldn’t have stopped Fan Antonio from sweeping the Griz and moving on to the NBA Finals to face either Miami or Indiana.   NBA history was not on Memphis’ side because no team has ever recovered from a 3 – 0 deficit, and with no one to consistently put the ball in the basket, that job is twice as difficult.  Spurs win the 2013 Western Conference title!
