    Heat vs. Pacers – Game 2

    The Miami Heat evened the series at a game apiece with an 87-83 victory in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Miami used a 12-2 run in the fourth quarter to take the lead and improve their expected win probability from 21 percent to 96 percent.

    Game defining sequence…
    With Indiana leading 75-74 with less than five minutes to play, David West missed an open jumper and then fouled LeBron James on the ensuing play, almost drawing a flagrant foul. LeBron made both free throws to give Miami the lead; it was the play that gave the Heat the projected lead for good.

    Had West made the jumper, Indiana leads 77-74, the Pacers become 77 percent likely to win and take a 2-0 series lead.

    Heat vs. Pacers – Game 1

    Despite trailing at various points in the game, Indiana was the projected winner throughout Game 1.

    Be wary of 12-2 runs. Miami used such a run to seal Game 2, the Pacers used a 12-2 run to blow Game 1 wide open. The Pacers run came during a three minute stretch in the third quarter, Indiana's expected win probability increased from 74 percent to 92 percent.

    Spurs vs. Thunder – Game 1

    The San Antonio Spurs routed the Oklahoma City Thunder 122-105 in Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals.

    The Thunder took a 78-77 lead with less than five minutes left in the third but the Spurs used a 12-4 run to close the quarter. San Antonio's expected win probability increased from 55 percent to 85 percent.
