    Paul P have to stay in games lately he been fouling out close games this Hurt BOSTON in closing mins.
    ou in OT so is James fouling out puts a huge weight on WADE to close out and try to seal a victory but
    with KG lurking round it's been tough so the HEAT falls in OVERTIME 93-91 yet to win a road game in the series
    now Rondo 15 point 15 asst help even the series 2-2

    peace

    You're right. they did win that game and they won again last night in o/t. but, like you're saying about the ref's, i think it goes both ways depending on the odds in Vegas. Look at the no calls last night that LBJ was complaining about. he was getting knocked the floor and the ref's were letting it go. Look at the double foul on Garnett and LBJ they called? How can both players get a fould when one of them was obviously the agressor? It doesn't make sense. Beyond that, how does Pierce keep fouling out? A second game in a row that goes to O/T? Both series now tied at 2 - 2?

    I hear what you're saying and i'm watching your movement and mostly agree, but to me it changes with the wind according to the odds and money involved in Las Vegas.

    Ever notice when the ref's 'review' a call/play, that they will more often than not put the headset on as if they are listening, instead of watching. You don'e need the headset on unless you are reviewing to listen if the shot got off before the buzzer and even then you don't really need it because the back board lights up when the clock runs out. So my question is, what/who are they really listening too?

    OKC will win it all and sure James came out on fire pushing for another chance but i never doubt it that this would
    go 7 Boston will redeem and come back in game 7 to kill the dreams of Lebron

    Boston vs OKC in the finals with OKC winning it all in 6

    This is actually the only game that Heat have won without assistance from the Referees. let's not forget the unexplainable technicals in game one.. and Lebron's unexplainable 24 free throws from game 2.. or the 6 point swing that began with wade clearly fouling rondo on the drive.. then kicking-off KG on the score on the other end. Miami's offense is still stagnate.. and their coaching is virtually non-existent.. Doc rivers has coached circles around Spoelstra even with all the assistance from the Referees. A good pure basketball finals would have been Boston and San Antonio.. but it would have been completely boring to the highlight reel generation.. I'd like to see two-levels to the finals.. with a first-tier and second-tier championship.. The winners of the conference finals play for the first tier.. and the losers of the conference finals play for the second-tier..
    7 game first tier... 5 game second tier..

    I think it'll be Miami

    OKC allows too many points.. they can't lock down a team. Their games are basically scoring competitions. And they're a jump shooting team that does not shoot a high enough percentage or make it to the line enough to really grind out a 7 game series against a solid defensive team. That said, they still have a good chance of winning it all.. they have the superior coach.. They'll probably start with Battier on Durant.. and Wade on Westbrook.. and at some point put Lebron directly on Durant. I think the big stage will send Westbrook off the edge.. and he'll go back to just heaving up shots.. Ibaka and Sefaloosha are the key for OKC.. but they have got to have opportunities. And Fisher will be important in this series.. it's going to come down to getting the ball to the right player at the right time.. I'd like to see OKC win it all.. but they gotta grow into a defensive team in a hurry to make that happen... some players are going to have to be willing to sacrifice some numbers.. Westbrook needs to shoot 5 less shots per game and deliver 5 more assists per game. And Ibaka has got to get his shot-blocking groove back.. he's capable of 5 or more per game..

    I can see Durant versus Lebron is a classic good versus evil scenario.. Durant as the clean cut humble grounded unthreatening softspoken young man that says all the right things.. Lebron as the brash self-possessed tatted-up street-dude f-you pay-me archetype that skipped college and makes his own moves.

    That's a classic american drama.. humble good natured little Oklahoma city versus swazy swaggering sin-city-ish Miami.. That's something the whole country can get behind.. it fits all neatly within all of the major divisions.. Church folks versus street folks.. Intelligence versus Physicality.. conservative values verses liberal values.. Once the field is set.. in black circles you'll hear the House negro/field negro line of thinking pop-up.. the good negro verses the bad negro.. the yes-man verses the rebel.. etc...

    If they're really business smart.. they'll recognize the entertainment potential of it and take verbal shots at each other.. create even more drama.. draw even more viewers in.. hip hop heads will love that.. basketball beef!.. and the either/or question will be posed.. Lebron or Durant.. which one.. you can't love them both.. pick one!! and the beat goes on.

    Boston faded down the wire as wade and James came alive at home with Bosh they became too much
    look for a long series with OKC as well and there will be some good match-ups in this final series

    Hey skuderjaymes brother you was on point but let's see what happen in the finals

    Miami HEAT vs OKC Thunders
    will the heatwave continue to a title or will it boom a thunderous storm and put out the fire to a cool off
    and OKC young legs steal the show.......time will tell !!!!!

    Hate to say "I told you so" lol

    I think Chris Bosch matchup against Perkins will determine the final outcome in the finals.

    I still believe Miami will win the Championship because they have more experienced players and they have better match ups with most of their key players. For example, once a bigger guard like Wade is guarding WestBrook its harder for Westbrook to do as much as he want...we will see..

    Westbrook was the key to game 1. He had 11 assists and only 2 turnovers.. and he made it to the line 9 times.. making 7 of those attempts.. that's a huge improvement. He still took 4 shots too many.. all 3-point shots.. all missed. That's not his game.. take away those attempts and he was 10-20 from the field.. and 7-9 from the line.. very nice stat line.. and his 8 rebounds represented the rebounded edge for OKC (43 - 35). If he can limit his shots to about 15 per game.. and keep those assists above double digits plus add a good 5 or 6 rebounds per game.. ever single game of the finals.. they can win this series.
