NBA tickets are enjoying quite a season as some unexpected teams are either up or down. That’s the way it is in the NBA though. Of course, one of the big questions this season is whetrher the Miami Heat can come back and win again for the third consecutive time. There are some teams lined up to block that effort.
Right now the Heat are playing second fiddle to the Indiana Pacers who have a 3 1/2 game lead in the Eastern Conference. Miami is having some issues with injury and struggled on the road recently. Home has been better with a recent win over the lowly Lakers but the West leading Pacers will be in American Airlines Arena in Wednesday for a showdown. Tornto and Atlanta occupy the third and fourth spots in the East but they’re a distant threat. This is a Miami-Oklahoma Races at the top.
The Western Conference of the NBA is much more competitive. The Oklahoma City Thunder currently hold the top spot with a 1/2 game lead over the San Antonio Spurs. Third place is held by Portland. This is one of those wide open NBA races that could see things change very quickly over the course of the second half of the season. The Western Conference of the NBA, unlike the East, is going to be a muddle for awhile.Eric Drouant
