Neither team has won two in a row in the series, but the
Nets’ 97-88 win in Game 4 might prove to be a watershed game. The Nets’
attacking offense, led by Vince Carter, left Nenad Krstic wide-open for a 10-for-16 shooting performance.
Defensively, they held the Pacers to 6 of 18 in the first and third quarters,
got Jermaine O’Neal in foul trouble and slowed
Anthony Johnson (12 points) and Stephen Jackson (13 points).

One number the Nets and Pacers will be thinking about: In
the history of seven-game series that were tied at 2-2, the winner of Game 5
wins the series 83.6 percent of the time (107-21).

Thanks to consecutive wins at the United
, the playoff series between
the Bulls and the favored Miami Heat is tied at 2-2. The scene shifts back to South
for a pivotal Game 5 tonight at American Airlines Arena. Chandler’s
status is in doubt. He wore a walking boot on his right leg after landing
awkwardly and turning the ankle with about 30 seconds left in Sunday’s 93-87
victory. Even if Chandler decides
to play, it’s probably safe to assume he won’t be at full speed. So the Bulls
are expecting to find some alternate defenders for Heat center Shaquille
O’Neal, whose playing time was limited by foul trouble in Games 3 and 4.
Starter Michael Sweetney figures to get more minutes
if he can keep away from fouls. Malik Allen, Othella Harrington and rookie Luke Schenscher
are the other logical options. The Bulls have found success by spreading the
court and attacking Miami’s weak
perimeter defenders. That strategy helped create O’Neal’s foul problems because
the Bulls guards are finding free lanes to the basket. Skiles
identified turnovers as his team’s greatest concern. They had a combined 35 in
the first two games of the series, even though the Heat ranked 28th
in the league this season in causing turnovers.

From defensive
issues to offensive fixes, the Kings have seemingly righted their wrongs. After
allowing the Spurs to hit 23 three-pointers in the first two games, San Antonio
has hit just nine since the Kings made the perimeter a priority. The feared
byproduct was an explosion by Spurs forward Tim Duncan. But though he’s only
rarely being double-covered, Duncan has scored more than 17 points just once
(29 in Game 3), a credit to aggressive defense by Kenny Thomas, Brad Miller and
Shareef Abdur-Rahim. After forgetting the beating they took in Game 1, the
Kings seemed to remember how they won 26 of their final 40 regular-season games
– with defense and, in part, with the help of Brad Miller. They gave up a
combined 250 points in the first two games, only to return to the defensive
ways sparked by Ron Artest and allow 177 in the last two. Then, after being
pleased to learn that the Spurs have no answer for the offensive attacks of
Bonzi Wells, Artest and – at times – Abdur-Rahim, Miller returned to his old


The Phoenix Suns try stave off elimination tonight, as
they host the Los Angeles Lakers at US Airways Center in Game 5 of their
first-round series. The Lakers own a 3-1 lead in this best-of-seven series. The
Lakers have lost two straight Game 5s in the postseason. They have won 13 of
their last 14 contests when they have the chance to eliminate their opponent. Phoenix
has lost six of its last seven Game 5s in the playoffs. The Suns have lost four
of their last five outings when facing elimination. The Suns have never
comeback from a 3-1 deficit to win a playoff series.
