A little more than a year ago, the Miami Heat stood on the verge of elimination in the Eastern Conference Finals. The team’s heart and the ability of the Big Three were being questioned left and right ahead of Game 6 of the Conference Finals.
The Miami Heat dug themselves a hole when they allowed the San Antonio Spurs to go up 3-2 in the 2013 NBA Finals. Heading into Game 6, the Heat face long odds of just getting to Game 7, much less winning the NBA championship.
They lost three times in three months in one of the most overpowering stretches the NBA has ever seen.
Bryan Bickell scored a go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 in Game 6 on Monday night.
Jeremy Lin will return to the Rockets’ lineup Friday night after missing the last two games with a chest contusion. The point guard, who injured his chest in Game 2, will not be a starter but playing off the bench.
The Rockets are two wins away from becoming the first team in NBA history to clinch a seven-game series after starting 0-3.
