I think we can match up with bothby Lin Luan NFL Apparel "It's not that we pull (for Indiana)," he said. "I think this time it's different than before because the homecourt advantage. It is a big difference. It's not definitive. It doesn't mean that whoever has homecourt advantage is going to win. But we all prefer to have a Game 7 at home than on the road if we could get to that point. But besides that, different styles, I think we can match up with both."
Championship teams usually have to win one or more games on the road, especially in the Finals where the format switches to 2-3-2 in terms of where the games are played.
But Ginobili is right when he says a Game 7 at home is something to be valued, so there's no shame in his rooting a little bit for the Pacers to come back and win the series, considering it would mean home court advantage for the Spurs in the NBA Finals.
Pacers forward David West started Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals Saturday night.
West was sent home early from the team's morning shootaround after doctors diagnosed him with an upper respiratory infection. About 75 minutes before the game, coach Frank Vogel told reporters he believed the fever had broken. About 20 minutes after that, the Pacers released their starting lineup, with West in it.
West has been effective during the series, averaging 18.2 points and 8.4 rebounds in the five games.
The Heat were without big man Chris Andersen, who is suspended.
