OVERTIME

BILL NEAL :10 The question comes to me over and over and over, as well it should. After all, I am the OVERTIME MAN…man! How can the Miami Heat destroy the Indiana Pacers one day and then get destroyed the next? Simple. It’s all about match up. Some teams just match up better than others. For example, in another arena, Muhammad Ali beat everybody and their mother and predicted the round on top of that. But Ken Norton gave Ali fits. Tyson scared everybody but Evander Holyfield. And you know the Pirates can’t do a thing with the Brewers… sometimes it’s just match ups.
