If you are a Heat fan, you should feel good right now. I won't try and take that away from you.

Enjoy the win folks.

This has been one weird NBA season. The Heat loss 2 games in Boston and wins 1 game in OKC who I believed was a much better team

Btw, that was brought to you by Captain Obvious.
Ha ha. James, good post.

^lol it was rhetorical..

But I honestly thought the Thunder would squeak this one out. I don't really see them winning the next. Not now, at least. They have to win on the road after being beaten down for three games straight.

It's all situational...the Heat have been in almost every situation before, and they've learnt from their mistakes.

I see a meltdown coming..I wouldn't be surprised if the next game was a blowout. Westbrook is going to try to carry that team. Needs to learn to defer to KDur more..and KDur needs to be more assertive in that regard.

Miami is battle tested.

The Thunder need to come out with a grind it out mentality for them to have a shot.

At the end of the day, it was an experienced big three vs a young big two.

I've been saying it for the lognest. KD and Westbrook and Harden can Not be aggressive together! They Cant. Their games don't compliment each other. They are all guards. Look at Garneet Peirce and Allen. At Least One Forward. Bosh #6 and Wade. At Least one forward. All Guards does not win GAMES!

After OKC jumped out to a 17 point lead in Game 4 and still ended up losing, there is no way they any mental energy left for Game 5.

When you lay it all out on the floor to win and still lose, the other team is BETTER

Miami is not better, record clearly showed that this season. But their stepping up AS A TEAM unlike OKC is.

I don't care nothing about any records, the Heat proved they are the better team because they erased a 17 point lead in 3 mins. Congrats to the 2012 NBA champs, the Miami Heat

Good Night

They do not have a better team. They only played better as a TEAM. On paper, Stats and One on One. THEY DO NOT HAVE A BETTER TEAM.

Well if that makes you feel better than kept believing that but at the end of the day it means nothing. OKC proved to be not Finals material and the stage was apparently too big for them.
