When will Series finish - Pretty confident each team will win at least 2 matches each therefor at least 6 game series,absolutely brutal!Always rated the Spurs but this OKC have been impressive,Spurs look fit n healthy which could the key in a very intensive battle!Think the Spurs could get over the line with more clutch players in the end over athleticism!Possible Spurs 4-2/4-3 but if OKC could pull something out for a 4-3 even 4-2,I would have even more respect for Thunda n Durantula!

OKC/SA Series finish Game 6 - 3.00!

Boston's Old Men to beat The Lebron's at 2.12

As a Heat fan I can attest to the fact that the Heat are very, very lucky (no pun intended) to be up 2-1 in this series. The Celts know how to play these guys. In game 1 when The Green had no business even competing (coming off of a long, long series playing on limited rest on the road against a team that was well rested), they had the score tied at the half and even though they were blown out there were signs.

Game 2 was one the Celtics wish they could have back. The entire team essentially played perfectly with the exception of Garnett, who struggled with terrible decision making late and tons of missed shots. He also combined that with a couple of atrocious passes and some terrible shots. The Celtics should have won that one as Ray Allen and Paul Pierce played relatively well all things considered..

Dwywane Wade has been putrid this entire series. He's only going 21 ppg but surprisingly and to his credit he's shooting over 50%. He might be due for a big performance but I think DWade, even though he's only 30 and has missed so many games throughout the course of his career, past his prime and not an elite player anymore. In fact, I think if the Heat had to have one of either him or Bosh to win a championship the no brainer response is Bosh.

It's going to be a tough game for the Celtics as its going to be difficult for Garnett, Rondo, and Allen to continue to play well. Pierce has played terribly and its tough to ask a lot of a 34 year old who's guarding the best basketball player on the planet at one end and having to score on him at the other end, but if the Celts are to square this one they'll need more from the 2009 finals MVP.

A lot of what happens to the Celtics is out of their hands. Battier was 0-6 from the field and 0-4 from behind the arc in game 3 but those are open looks that you have to give up. Also, the Heat shot only 10-20 from the foul line and only 5-17 from 3 point land. You have to expect those numbers to improve.

But all year long, atleast by their standards, the Heat have been suspect at home (18-15). The Celtics enjoy dominance at the Garden (24-9) including a 6-1 playoff record. I'm going to play the numbers here. Remember, even last year in this same scenario it took the Heat a herculean overtime effort by LeBron and Bosh to win game 4. Celtics for me at a wonderful price.

Great win and nice write up Buster,what are your thoughts on game 5?Heat favoured by 8pts,seems alot but they could do it(touch n go)might wait for a HT scenario to see what the 1st half pans out!I thinking Heat 1-10pts,Ray Allen as a starter for Boston is a prize move by the coach!

Heat vs Celtics Over 179.5pts(1.85) - 1st half overs looks good aswell,the 1st four games have been Over comfortably in the 1st half!The Celtics starters are getting hotter,especially from the opening match which should take the total over!

Hey mate sorry I didn't think anyone actually read my write up so I didn't do another or come back to see your kind comments!

I actually had Miami covering game 5 but I made my money back taking the Heat in games 6 and 7.

This is the most highly anticipated finals series since magic-bird days with the MVP and runner up and by far the two best team in the league. What a treat. Thunder are 1.7 to win the series but thats based on the fact that they have HC advantage.

Heat an underdog for game 1, the first time all playoffs long.

I think the value lies in the underdog here. LeBron will wear on Durant throughout the course of a 7 game series and the Thunder, as impressive as their run has been, has been against a bunch of old, unathletic teams.

Yeah this is one hell of a series,you missed be shaking(through excitement) since your a Heat fan!Game 2 is probably the most important of the series according to stats,dont know what the record for being up 2-0 in a Finals series is but it must be pretty good!Both teams will want to make their home court a fortress until something breaks!Bosh back in the side will do wonders for the Heat,without him i dont think you can get over the line!Durant n Westbrook have been putting up sick numbers all through the playoffs!I guess they have to cool down sometime,i would like to see Le Bron get a ring but it wont be as easy as once thought!

Heat are in a heap of trouble. Theres numerous reasons as to why but I'll keep it simple:

- They're being outcoached. Brooks isn't a good coach but he isn't a bad one either. Every game you see the Heat play theres two handfuls worth of mistakes you can point out.

- I said before the series that Wade would have it outplay Westbrook. Doesn't seem like much to ask of a 30 year old veteran who has a championship ring to outplay a 23 year old in his first Finals appearance but it wasn't even close. Both these guys are notorious for taking horrible shots. On Tuesday, Westbrook's went in and Wade's misses (he started the game 4-15) killed Miami.

- LeBron has no help. This really can't be understated. Wade and Bosh combined for 29 points on 11-30 shooting. Wstbrook by himself was 10-24 for 27 points. He outplayed both of them COMBINED and he didn't even have a good shooting game.

You're right SF I am a Heat fan but I am also a realist and it was obvious to me that the Thunder are a better team than the Heat. I didn't believe it, but once again the bookies knew.

I lost heavy coin on Tuesday but I'm lucky I didn't have anymore available credit with my bookie at halftime I would have unloaded the farm on the Heat getting 6 at the half being up by 7. I figured the line to be Thunder -3.5 Again, the bookies knew. I didn't.

The Heat are now 3.5. to win the series and to win tomorrow and with good reason, its just a matter of time, ESPECIALLY with this 2-3-2 format.

Interesting thoughts m8,i like your thinking!For me no doubt Wade/Bosh needs to put up good no's or Lebron is history!You can ride the King but even the King needs his men for support!Im sure when things on the line Wade will come good and Bosh just needs more minutes!Wade can be underated,like Lebron if they get more bad criticism they could explode!Durant n Westbrook are good and their time will come no doubt,but atm i still think the Cream of the Crop goes to the Heat with Lebron/Wade/Bosh although funnier things can happen!Thunda has disposed of Mavs/Lakers/Spurs(probably the best perfoming teams over the last 5 yrs,excluding Celtics/Heat!That is one hell of run and diserving,can they get over one more Elite team will be a very big ask but then again why cant they with the performances soo far!If Heat can win 2morro,the title will be turn upside down and the 1st game for Thunda wouldve been a waste!Heat are 2.80 to win title,thats worth a shot considering if they win they will become favourite for the title and a possible hedge could be required later!Just feel game 2 is make or break either side(therefor the most important match of the series imo,momentum will be the most important thing in this series,heads/shoulders could drop n vice versa!
