Schmeelk: NBA Finals Far From Over

As much as the Heat have outplayed the Thunder in this series, the margin has been extremely small. A few plays here and there and the Thunder could easily be the team up 3-1. If Oklahoma City can do a few things differently, they can still win this series.

Schmeelk: Bad Omens For Heat In Game 1

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.
