Matt Moore joins me on the podcast after we had a brief hiatus to discuss what's happening in the Eastern and Western Conference finals series. The Miami Heat's big fourth quarter performance ended up giving them the 2-1 series advantage and have turned Game 4 into a must-win for the Pacers. Can the Pacers survive when the Heat go small and is there a way for them to stop ruining their own pick-and-roll plays? Is this going to come down to which set of role players between the Heat and the Pacers step up for the rest of the series?
In the Western Conference, we've seen new life in the Oklahoma City Thunder as they took Game 3 from the San Antonio Spurs with some help from Serge Ibaka. Did Ibaka's return give the Thunder the needed boost to still control this series? Is Manu Ginobili's play sustainable or do the Spurs really need Tony Parker to be great? Should the Spurs be going at Ibaka for longer periods in order to test out his calf?
