As expected, Erik Spoelstra has gone to the Heat lineup that he started the second half of Game 4 with, a no point guard lineup.

Mario Chalmers has been benched and Ray Allen is starting for the Miami Heat.

Miami’s starting five is Allen, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James, and Chris Bosh and Rashard Lewis. That lineup has played 9 minutes together in this Finals (they shot just 25 percent, but that’s a small sample size).

No changes for the Spurs who start Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, Boris Diaw and Tim Duncan.

    And in true NBA fashion it`s going to be a 5 on 8 game tonight.The refs want another game check.

    Looks like a good move from Spo so far. The Heat have been aggressive and LeBron looks focused. If the Heat want to win this game they have to stay active on defense.
