Ah so now Lebron might choke away the series after dominating OKC and busting the celtics hard in the mouth in game 6 and 7?

The guy has been BRUTAL this playoffs....I think hoping he lays down for OKC at this stage is gross fantasy and somewhat insulting to the effort he's put forth.

If you want some brutal truth, I think the Heat broke OKC's will in the 2nd quarter last night and the series will end the next game.

Lebron is playing with confidence now, so I don't anticipate him coming up small for the rest of the series. At this stage he just needs consistent support from Wade,Bosh, and the roleplayers.

Yeah, I think if OKC wants to grasp at a silver lining a key injury is more likely than Lebron collapsing.

(This coming from the guy that was rooting for OKC to win it all)

It's conceivable but it won't be because Lebron. I'm convinced that he is going to get his every night. The thing is with OKC is, in spite of Lebron's play, they have been in every game down the stretch but their execution has been awful. When Miami needs big baskets, they have gotten them, when OKC has needed them, they have not. They certainly have the talent enough to pull off a miracle, but I wouldn't put my money on it, based on their play thus far.

Yep. I said he might.

I'm not hoping that this happens. I was one of the people who called a Heat victory in 7 games after all (the majority of you guys voted for OKC in 6 lol). I just said that an OKC victory is conceivable because they are going to come out guns blazing in Game 5. If they take Game 5, they will go back home for two straight games with their backs against the wall. To beat OKC, at home, will be incredibly tough. And saying that Lebron might shrink when the pressure's really on is far from fantasy. You must not remember last year's finals, huh?

Each of these games has gone down to the wire. Don't expect OKC to make the same boneheaded mistakes in Game 5 that they made in Game 4. And don't expect Harden, Ibaka and Perkins to turn in sub-par performances in Game 5. Those boys will be fired up and ready to go. To say that they are out of it is foolish, especially considering how they took 4 in a row from the Spurs.

OWN IT! just like the rest of us, OWN your bad picks! ALL OF THEM!!!! you look like a hypocrite and an idiot when you pick a team, then as soon as they are against the wall, you switch to the team beating them. bad-wagoners are bad for sports!
Not only was I wrong, most of the country was wrong too. The Heat are just a ODD team who struggled against the Celtics and now are dominating the Thunder

Hint: Bosh's injury.

Once again, I'm calling Heat in 7.

Harden, Ibaka and Perkins will all put in solid performances in Game 5. Durant will do his normal thing. Westbrook will calm down.

The OKC crowd will lift their team to a victory in Game 6.

Heat win narrowly in an epic Game 7.

That's funny, all of a sudden Harden, Ibaka, and Perkins will step up when all of them have been absent in the first 4 games-lol Thursday Night will be the last NBA game of the 2011-12 season and lebron will get his first ring. OKC is done and Miami will be partying hard tomorrow night.
