Greetings in that Divine and Most Precious Name of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!
<3 Durant, unbelievable tonight.
It was a great game for OKC, but a bit of an anomaly as Sefolosha stepped up even a bit more then Harden on offense and Collison was 4-5 and had 10 boards (I really like Nick but that is embarrassing for Bosh) and Serge went 50%. The bigs were good for OKC, but Heat can readjust for that. Heat also gave away 33 defensive rebounds by only get 8 OR, that must be fixed! In reality, Heat played this game with only six guys so they really underestimated the Thunder. That won't happen again. I think Heat will readjust and win the next one, it won't take much, just a bit tighter on defense and LeBron needs to focus more on driving in the lane rather then jumpers. Drives worked, OKC has bigs in their front court, but they still aren't used to the kind of consistently explosive drives that Heat can deliver, and so in that regard, they need to do that more. So if Heat can keep driving rather then jump shooting, and can defend KD a bit tighter they should easily be able to recapture the series. OKC fed off their crowd who was actually a bit quiet in the first half.. Heat defense can keep that up and drain a bit of the energy and keep it flowing their way. If Bosh had played a little better offense and Heat played a bit deeper they could have kept their lead. With that, I only readjust my prediction to Heat in 7. Even though everyone will jump on the OKC bandwagon, its a bit early, this team is ridiculously good, but so is the Heat.
But who am I kidding, my Thunder just clowned it in their first Finals game!! Wow. This is surreal to have both teams in it..
