The Spurs and Heat are expected to use the same starting lineups for Tuesday's Game 6 as they did for Game 5.
That means Manu Ginobili is in and Tiago Splitter is out for the Spurs, while Mike Miller gets the nod for the Heat. Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard and Tim Duncan will round out the starting five for the Spurs, while Mario Chalmers, Dwyane Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh will start for the Heat. LeBron is actually warming up on the court (instead of in the practice gym) for the big game, which is not something he normally does.
Coach Doc Rivers is expected to meet with Celtics GM Danny Ainge on Wednesday.

Now that the Clippers trade is dead, the question is if Rivers wants to oversee the Celtics' rebuilding process. It looks like the answer is no, but Ainge will discuss it with his coach. Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski notes that the two parties are "not at odds" despite the drama of the last week. When Rivers signed a five-year, $35 million contract in 2011, he had to know that Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce would be done before then.
Chris Andersen is expected to be back in the rotation for Tuesday's Game 6.

Andersen did not play at all in Games 4 or 5 as Mike Miller started and Udonis Haslem came off the bench. With the Heat back in front of their home fans and needing a big spark as they face elimination, expect Birdman to get the call for some energy off the bench. Coach Erik Spoelstra still hasn't revealed his starting five.
