# THE PROGRAM FOR TUESDAY 10 MAY
- 1h30 : Heat – Sixers (2-2) (beIN Sports 1)
- 4h : Suns – Mavericks (2-2) (beIN Sports 1)
Big, very big night which is announced this Tuesday. The two leaders of each conference now find themselves under pressure after having dropped two consecutive meetings outside, they who seemed to have their series well in hand. Certainly, Miami and Phoenix will be able to rely on the support of their public to try to snatch a crucial victory, but the momentum is clearly in favor of the Sixers and the Mavericks. The former were boosted by the return of a masked Joel Embiid as well as a great James Harden in the fourth round, and will try to ride this great dynamic to win against a Miami Heat deprived of Kyle Lowry. As for the second, they seem less Doncic-dependent than during the first two games in Arizona. The Slovenian genius is less a scorer but more a playmaker, and his friends respond brilliantly: Jalen Brunson, Dorian Finney-Smith, Reggie Bullock, the bench, and even a bit of Frank Ntilikina, in short the Mavs prove that they are much more than a one-man show. Dallas has clearly raised the tone at home – defensively in particular – and it will now be up to Phoenix to react. In particular Chris Paul, expected at the turn after two games completely messed up in Texas.
Two big games for a night that promises to be epic, you have understood that it is clearly not the time to sleep. So, who will be ahead in the score tomorrow morning with a match point for the conf’ finals? Reply soon.
