HEAT May Change Lineup for Game 6
In moments like these for the Miami Heat — when a victory is absolutely necessary — Coach Erik Spoelstra falls back on two ideas.
One, his players play their best when the lights are the brightest. It is paramount for LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh to have strong performances in Game 6 if the Heat want to extend the NBA Finals to a seventh game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Two, Spoelstra says “everything is on the table” in a must-win game, and down 3-2 to the Spurs, there is no bigger must-win than Tuesday’s game (9 p.m. ET, ABC). That means most players are available to play and starting lineup changes are possible.
And now, it might be time for Spoelstra to again tinker with his starting lineup. Would he put Haslem back in and move Miller back to the bench?
“We’ll see,” he said.
