It has been the Heat’s ability to slow down the Thunder offense that has been the difference so far in the series.
The Heat have been here before, two wins from an NBA title. The difference now? LeBron James isn’t letting his head get in the way of his talent.
Jerry Recco was all over it this morning, updating the different directions which the Yankees and the Mets are currently heading in.
Boomer & Craig enjoyed a little 3-day weekend, so when they took their seats in the Allstate Studio just after 6 a.m., the Dynamic Radio Duo had plenty to talk about.
With two games of the NBA Finals in the books, here are some of my thoughts on the current state of the series and beyond as this star-studded quest for the title continues on Sunday evening.
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 scored 17 of his 36 points in the fourth quarter, Russell Westbrook added 27 points and 11 assists, and the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from a 13-point deficit to beat the Miami Heat 105-94 on Tuesday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

Let’s give some love to LeBron James, Union Rags, Maria Sharapova, Rafael Nadal, the Seawolves and to a Chinese woman named Shanshan Feng.
LeBron James versus Kevin Durant. It is the story of these NBA finals. One of them will emerge with his first championship and probably the title of best player in the game.
Overall, Las Vegas is putting the Heat’s chances of winning at around 40 percent, according to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel’s Dave Hyde. For Game 1 of the NBA Finals, Bodog.net has the Thunder as an early 5 point favorite over the Heat.
