Rooting for Thunder, but I think Heat will win in 5. Book it.

Game 1 on Tuesday 6pm Pacific Time.

Thunder with HCA.

I agree the Heat are good, but Durant is better than Pierce, Westbrook is a better attacker than Rondo(Rondo, clearly a better floor general), and Harden is more of a scoring threat than Allen.

OKC has every bit the athleticism to keep up with Miami. LeBron willed his team to victory in this series (particularly game 6). Wade will have to consistently play well if Miami is going to win. They also won't have HCA.

Beyond the matchups though, this finals series, barring any freak injuries, could be one for the ages. Arguably two of the games best trying to write their story for the history books. In either case for either player, you can certainly argue "their" era will begin. As a basketball fan, can't ask for much more here.

the advantage the heat have is that they've been there, which historically seems to mean something...but OKC clearly isn't scared...

Thunder in 6.

Reasons - OKC:

Just as athletic
Have size advantage
Teams have had to match up with Miami, not issue with OKC
Home court advantage (undefeated at home)
Better bench (Harden)
Speed of play is far different than NY, Indiana, and Boston
Heat cannot afford to go stagnant on offense, Thunder will extend lead in a flash
Road to finals tougher: DAL, LA, SA <<<<< NY, IND, BOS


Don't get me wrong, the Heat can beat the Thunder but this isn't the matchup that favors Miami, which is not something the Heat are used to.

Should be a great finals though. This was my Finals prediction before the season.

Depends on how much of a factor Harden is to be honest. Westbrook is going to run all over Chambers and Wade could score on him. Durant and LeBron are going to be trading games back and forth. The factor is how Ibaka and Perkins guard Bosh and how much damage Harden can do to the Heat coming off the bench. Those two factors are going to mean the most.
