I'd say Miami wins 2 of 3.

But who knows. Both teams are capable of winning. They're very evenly matched teams...

I see Miami taking two out of three at home, and I think they get either game 6 or game 7 in OKC. But they have to step up their play in the second half of basketball games and stop getting away from the successful game plan they've been using in the first half of both games.

Miami wins 2 of the 3 at home, finishes it in game 6.

3-2 Heat. If the Thunder are going to win they are going to have to steal one game in MIA and then win it on their home court. This looked like a seven game series to me from the start and I have no idea how people thought the Thunder were going to walk away with this based on their first win.

Miami needs to take their first 2 games at home and put all the pressure on OKC. This series has been amazing, lets see what happens.

When teams are this evenly matched I think its damn near impossible to win 3 in a row, this is why the 2-3-2 format favors the higher seed. In order to protect home court after stealing one on the road, the lower seed has to win 3 in a row. In order to win a series after stealing home court in one of the first two games they have to end the series in 5 or else they have to win 2 on the road. Thats too tall a task IMO, I see it 3-2 also with OKC winning in 7. If the Heat go down 3-2 then I have OKC in 6

The only team to ever win those 3 games in a row was the 2006 Heat.

It is SOOO hard...and that's why I don't get why people think the 2-3-2 favors the low seed.

I think the 04 Pistons did as well.

I'l say 3-2 Heat, cuz it would be hard to win 4 straight at this stage. The one thing the Thunder dont want to do is lose both Games 3 and 4 and go down 3-1. If they do that, then the Heat might also very well win Game 5 eager to end the series at home. IMO this is how it goes

Game 3-Heat

Game 4-Thunder

Game 5-Heat

The key to me is game 3. Whoever wins that game will win 2 games in Miami.

Something's gotta give. Either OKC's slow starts or Miami's slow finishes.
I see OKC making the adjustments needed to win game 3. Not sure how many more changes will need to be made beyond that. They will expect Miami to pound inside (shoulda known that was coming anyway). I don't see a thirds straight game where Miami controls the first half big time.

Miami will be up 3-2 then OKC closes it up in 7

Honestly, I can see the Thunder taking game 3 and playing hard. Then everyone get's on Miami and says it's over. Miami, fighting hard when their down, win the next 2 to go up 3-2 and back to OKC. No idea what happens then.

The Heat have already lost 2 home games up to this point. After a while, a championship team says: "**** no, no more home losses fellas, we know how that **** feels". And the fact that the Mavs clinched homecourt in Miami's building last yr and the Mavs won only 1 of their 3 home games last yr against them, I think the Heat are saying this time: BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY, WIN AT HOME.

So I wouldn't be surprised a bit if the Heat can win 3 in a row and clinch the title in 5.

Miami has had some struggles at home losing a few games there... Maybe the pressure of not letting the fans down will take some pressure off of OKC... Who knows...

This. I said Heat in 5 or 6 after how the Mavs did them last year I know they're gonna comeout hungry and more motivated then ever to win Games 3-5 so they won't have to go back to play at OKC. I think Miami wins 3 straight or lose one and close out in Game 6, They're due to lose another at home.

I'm leaning towards Miami wins 4-1.. I just look at the two games in OKC and Miami could have been up 2-0 if it weren't for a comeback (and some ref calls lol :p) This isn't like last year where they had to go to Dallas directly after a team making the comeback. They have all the momentum going back home... on top of the crowd and the home-team calls, I'm not sure if this young OKC team can do it.

IMO, G3 is a must win for OKC, otherwise I think they are done.

The Thunder are an excellent road team and sometimes it seems like they are more focused on the road. I think they win 2 of 3 in Miami.

3-2 Miami. OKC wins game four, Miami wins games three and five.

OKC wraps up the series in game seven at OKC.

They will need to if they want to win a ring. This goes back to okc with Miami up 3-2. And they win in 6

OKC is (4-3) on the road and the Heat are (8-2) at home in the playoffs. I could see the Heat winning all 3 and ending this series.

I don't put much merit into that. It's much harder to beat the Lakers and Spurs on the road than it is to beat Indiana and Boston on the road.

Before the series started, I thought the Thunder would win in 7, but trail 3-2 after 5 games. Still think that.

Not sure you can look at it both ways, Miami had a chance to be up 2-0 because they dominated the first half but in both games they blew double digit leads, I say heat 3-2 but Okc in 7

KDfor3
06-16-2012, 02:47 AM
I'm thinking were coming back to okc up 3-2. It depends if scott brooks can make the right adjustments, and if westbrook can play like a true PG as he showed us in game 1 and later in the conferemce finals. Theres. No way miami can win 3 in a row against this Thunder team though.

HEAT sweep at home. KD doesn't shake hands, no one complains. Refs are called into question, LeBron is called LeHadtoteamupwithfriendstobeatKDandco, rigging threads will be in the hundreds.

Or they go back to OKC, Heat up 3-2

OKC can win 2 in Miami but it wouldn't be games 3 and 4. More likely games 3 and 5 or 4 and 5.

It's going to be 3-2 miami. OKC will then win the next one at home. Game 7 is a toss up

Is it safe to say that OKC hasn't really had a good game yet. I guess you can say the same about miami too. But I feel like Miami has been the bully and OKC has been taking the beating. Miami just needs to realize there are 4 quarters in a game not 3. And OKC needs to realize the game starts in the 1st quarter not the 3rd.

Miami just needs to close off the 4th quarter. They are very capable of doing so- they stop driving and play perimeter ball for the majority of the 4th (the last two games). Drive and kick- thats why Bosh is there- to receive that ball in the 15-17 feet area to make those wide open jump shots. Most important player for the Heat right if they (Spo especially) recognize.

they were very capable of winning both games in OKC- leading through 3 quarters i believe in both games. and stopped attacking in the 4th quarter in both games. This series shouldn't even be close if Miami actually played the 4th quarter.

OKC can win 2 in Miami but it wouldn't be games 3 and 4. More likely games 3 and 5 or 4 and 5.

I feel like Oklahoma will surprise Miami and win game three and Miami makes adjustments but Sefalosha and Ibaka step up offensively in game four and OKC wins again. Then Miami wins game five by 10+
