LeBron James asked for help, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh provided it. The Miami Heat finally rediscovered the formula to winning in the NBA Finals — barely.
The old cliché reads, “Defense wins championships.” But this season, it may very well be the Thunder’s high-octane offense that gets them a title.
The Heat are focused around stars, but right now two of them (Bosh and Wade) for a variety of reasons, aren’t playing like ones. Unless things change, the Thunder will be celebrating a title a lot sooner than people think.
Kevin Durant keeps insisting these NBA Finals are Thunder against Heat, not him against LeBron James. So far, his side is winning both matchups.
With the NBA Finals set to begin on Tuesday night, here is a closer look at the matchups that will be critical in determining the eventual champion.
The Miami Heat are in for a rude awakening when the NBA Finals start Tuesday night.
Miami Heat won their second straight Eastern Conference title by beating the Boston Celtics 101-88 in Game 7 on Saturday night.
Is anyone really surprised that LeBron James put that type of game together against the Celtics last night? He is only the game’s best player. He has also done it before, after all, for those people who have a decent memory.
The Miami Heat’s season is on the precipice of disaster, the result of which will be significant changes to the roster, coaching staff or both. Now their season depends on winning an elimination game in one of the most hostile buildings in the league.
Team basketball: it’s a lesson the old Knicks knew well. It’s a lesson you hope Mike Woodson and his charges are taking note of and will put into play next year.
I want to take a moment and unplug the NBA playoffs from reality.
The NBA playoffs serve as a huge reality check for teams, showing them their true weaknesses and where they have to get better if they want to win a title.
With Bosh out for the remainder of the series, the pressure on LeBron James and Dwyane Wade isn’t going anywhere. Both will need to be absolute beasts for the Heat to finish off the Pacers.
LeBron James scored 40 points, superstar sidekick Dwyane Wade added 30 — 22 in the second half — and Miami’s dynamic duo took over after halftime to get the Heat even in the series.
The Knicks need to stop laughing. There’s nothing funny about losing or making your fans pay two grand to watch it live.
