Raptors live on, Heat watch and wait, Danuel House in trouble
Ben Golliver and Michael Pina open by recapping the best game of the bubble: Toronto's double-overtime Game 6 win over Boston. Why did Nick Nurse decide to go super small? Did Jayson Tatum need to do more late? What will be the deciding factors in Game 7? From there, they shift gears to show love to the Miami Heat, who are in the Eastern Conference finals just waiting to find out their opponent. What are Miami's key strategic advantages in the East finals? How well does Jimmy Butler need to play to get to his first NBA Finals? Can their shooters be trusted to stay hot? Ben and Michael close with a look at the impact of Danuel House's possible health protocol violation and how the Bucks' protest has inspired striking teachers across the country.
