A little less than 2 hours until tip-off.
I imagine LeBron and crew have already delivered the first deposit into the refs accounts tonight, once they realize they have the money its all but over for the Spurs.
I am gonna pick the Heat in 5 though, so what do y'all think?
University of Alabama: The high mark of college football since 1892
Heat in 4.
Van Gundy just called Ginobli a future hall of fame player. Interesting.
Black Shoes. Basic Blues. No Name. All Game.
Miami in 6
Spurs already up 5 in 2 minutes. Can you say blowout?
Spurs looking sharp
Spurs won't win this with Danny Green busting 3s and Splitter scoring. They need Duncan and Leonard to start establishing inside the paint, to balance out Tony Parker's scoring. Defensively they need to apply a heck of a lot more pressure on the Heat. Just far too easy so far for Miami to get where they want to on the court.
50/50 on charge/block but why is Wade shooting?
Haha wade charges while PASSING and still goes to the line. What a fvcking joke?
Not sure why Parker is trying to shoot over Bosh.
I've learned that's just how it is, if you are playing for Miami and wear #6 or #3 you get the calls most of the time
Way too many jumpers from the Heat.
This will be one heck of a series. Don't know who wins but were in store for a 6 or 7 game series I think.

Then against when it's LBJ and Ray Allen wide open from 3...
I'm not liking the matchups defensively for the Spurs. Leonard has been the Spurs' 2nd best player offensively, and thus far he's been swallowed up by LBJ. Defensively, the Spurs haven't shown they're capable of containing LeBron in any manner - and actually they're having a very difficult time of keeping the heat from driving, and for a team with as many 3 point shooters as they have - that's deadly. Before this series I thought Leonard was a great matchup for him...but now? hmmmm. Danny Green's 3s are basically what's keeping them in it right now.

Good points. As this game as gone on I've started wondering will the Heat just run away with it?
However with the shooters that the Spurs have they can manage to keep themselves in the game at all times. The Heat definitely match up well with the Spurs and that could spell bad news.
This is Leonard's first finals. He's a really good player, and I still believe he can contain LBJ for stretches. As long as they don't give up these wide open 3s...but I really do think Leonard is the key here. I hope he doesn't require a double to help on LBJ, and makes him work defensively. He's got to keep pressure off of Tony Parker.
It's dumb stuff like this - if Mike Miller is on the court, how can you lose track of him off the rebound? Ginobli has to know that he has to stick with him.
what in the world did I just watch a commercial for?
Keeping pressure off of Tony Park will be one of the keys to this series. Leonard also has to be able to guard LeBron on his own somehow.
The single stupidest commercial of all time IYAM
Chris Bosh is the most annoying player ever. How does someone who's 6-11 have absolutely no post game? He's like a pop & shot 2 guard who can't dribble
And there's the problem with having Tony Parker and Danny Green/old Manu Ginobli in the back court. Cole and Chalmers are going to basically live in the paint.
