Miami just needs one player off the bench to hit some shots. It's a great for them that Haslem and Miller are finally playing well. If Chalmers does anything, they'll be tough to beat.

I think Bosh is going to be a huge key...especially with Dirk guarding him.

For Dallas, it's Tyson Chandler IMO. He's gotta be a huge presence in the paint defensively. Their perimeter defense is suspect at time, and no team attacks the rim like Miami.

I'm going to say it's Bosh for Miami; I think if he plays well, Miami makes this a quick series, but if he struggles against Dirk then it could be the exact opposite.

For Dallas, it's gotta be the entire bench's three-point shooting in general. It's been superb so far this postseason, and if it continues into the Finals, Miami could have some serious problems.

Mavs: Chandler/Barea

Heat: Bosh and....... whatever big spo chooses to play

I think it will be big z because this mavs team is tall and unlike the bulls or philly we cant rely to much on joel as he will get killed on the boards. Unless haslem shows he can hold them off on his own which is too much to ask even for our biggest warrior (though u can never count this mans heart out if anyone will hold their own against 7 footers being undersized its him)

For Dallas, Jason Terry will have to shoot much better than he did against OKC for Dallas to win.

For Miami, I think they need some one from their bench to score 10-15 a night, and the guy I think has the best chance is Chalmers.

Heat: Chris Bosh and Mike Miller. If Bosh keeps up his superb play and actually gives us a Big 3 it will be very tough to guard. Miller brings his great rebounding, but if his shot starts to fall, it gives us a true three point shooter at the end of the games to spread the floor.

HASLEM. If Haslem can contain Dirk in quarters 1-3 maybe Lebron won't have to guard him in quarter 4.

JJ Barea for the mavs.
Bosh for Miami [I know, not the typical 'x-factor' pick, but if he can be good, he'll help neutralize Dirk, either by matching his points, or stopping him from scoring]

peja could be a big factor if he is hitting.

Call me crazy but I think Shawn Marion will be an X-factor for this series. He had awesome series v.s. the Thunder and really played well defensively as well as offensively. For the Heat it will be Bosh IMO. If Bosh can do something productive against the big men Chandler/Haywood/Dirk then it could propel the Heat.

Deshaun Stevenson and Udonis Haslem. I think Stevenson is probably going to start on LeBron and might jump around to Wade as well. As stated from others above those guys are going to get theirs, but if he can make it an inefficient 25 or 30 then it's a plus. With Haslem it's based on defense as well. He'll be matched up on Dirk the most to prevent Bosh from foul trouble and Haslem has the experience on him already. He maybe slower, but I was watching the replay of the finals, and Haslem does the little things like tug on the jersey or slip a knee in to hit Dirk a little. You may call them cheap shots, but he definitely knows how to get into Dirk's head.

Wade will dominate this series, there is not a player on the Mavs roster that could guard Wade... Not even one.

The X-Factor will be Lebron James.

X-Factor is Dallas's bench vs Bosh.

Agreed.
