Prediction? The Heat will beat OKC in six games.
We all know what Miami is capable of. We all witnessed Games 6 and 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals.
The five things that the Miami Heat have going for them are:
1. Oh my Bosh!
Chris Bosh is back. Finishing with 19 points and 8 rebounds in Game 7 of the Boston series, he was the main spark that got the Heat out their slump and into a full-on attack mode. Hitting three threes and grabbing rebound after rebound, having Bosh back is one of the keys to winning this championship. With Bosh being healthy, the Heat are starting to put themselves into a very good position to win this championship.
2. The supporting cast
Even though Coach Spo is keeping the bench tight, the supporting cast has truly stepped up in the post season and has been such an integral part in the team's wins. In Game 7 of the Boston series alone, Battier nailed four threes, Chalmers had nine points, and Udonis grabbed six boards. The bench has consistently been stepping it up, and if they continue, OKC is going to have a very tough time handling this team.
3. Defend This House
Game 7 at the America Airlines Arena was loud. I've been to many Heat games over the years, and Saturday night's game was the craziest game I've ever been to. Countless people in the arena stood the entire game to cheer on their home team. Fans were chanting for the full 48 minutes. Once the Heat cut Boston's lead at the beginning of the game and eventually started pulling away from the Celtics, the arena was too loud and too involved for the Celtics to even have a chance to get something going. I believe that it will be tough for any team to win in the AAA if the crowd stay's loud and involved.
4. All hail The King
LeBron James. LBJ. Bron Bron. MVP. King James. He proved himself game after game after game. He proved that no one in the NBA could stop him. He proved that he won't let the haters affect him. He proved that he is ready to bring home a championship.
5. Put a Ring On It
I've never seen this much focus from this Miami Heat team. Before, during, and after the games, the Heat are in the zone. They play, take care of business, then prepare for the next game. Every member of the Miami Heat organization has one goal in mind- to win it all. They won't settle for anything less than the championship, so I don't think that anyone, including OKC, will stand in there way.
That's all i have to say about the Miami Heat!
It is going to be a thrilling, up-tempo, and crazy final series, but I truly feel that the Heat will pull away with the win.
We have always had the talent, but I feel like we have the complete drive to win a championship with this team.
