They should be. The way the Heat played (minus LeBron) was terrible.

if you know basketball, its a game of matchups. the pacers do not favor miami's game, the spurs have no one like hibbert in the paint. not saying its going to be easy, but the heat match up better to the spurs then they do the pacers.

So Duncan and Splitter aren't in the paint then? Pretty sure, that's where they dominate...

Spurs in 6 (could see it being shorter series)

Spurs have much more depth
Spurs have much better coaching
Spurs have enough size to give problems in the paint
Spurs play great help defense and are a focused bunch who don't make mental errors
Spurs have huge edge at PG
Heat have LBJ, which is huge no doubt but its a team game.

Duncan and Pop retire after series.

This is going to be fun.

if youre saying that duncan and splitter have the same presence in the paint as hibbert and west, then yeah, the heat are in trouble.... duncan is a great player, but he wont have the same effect on offense and defense as hibbert had.

Offensive wise, Duncan is better than Hibbert imo.

Spurs play great help defense and are a focused bunch who don't make mental errors miami is one of the best defensive teams in the league, this is a toss up
Spurs have huge edge at PG disagree, a better pg but not a huge edge
Heat have LBJ, which is huge no doubt but its a team game. agree

Duncan and Pop retire after series. i hope not

This is going to be fun. agree

its kind of a doubled edge sword, they are both 2 different post players. hibbert is more power while duncan is more finesse, miami will be able to guard duncan alot easier then guarding hibbert. duncan may get 20 and 10, but he will have to work for it vs hibbert getting easy layups/dunks or hooks over much smaller/weaker players. duncan does not have near the strength as hibbet.

Going to be a fun series to watch. A couple of good teams, hopefully leading to a good series. I'm pulling for the Heat, but wouldn't be disappointed to see the Spurs win this one.

Heat in 5 games. The layoff is going to kill the Spurs.

No way! Spurs would have eaten OKC alive with or without Westbrook!

Thunder are worse than last year without Harden

Spurs are better than last year with major improvements from Kawhi, Green and Splitter, as well as having Manu healthy......er!

Should be interesting to see the matchups as these teams haven't really played each other this year.
Battier hasn't played meaningful minutes in a whole series,

Just about to say this. Kawhi and Splitter have been having great seasons. The Thunder hurt themselves by trading Harden. When he left, there was almost no way for them to win the Finals.

Just like Memphis was heavily favoured to beat the Spurs too!

If Wade and/or Bosh turn up consistently for the series and Allen has his eye in then the Heat will be hard to stop (assuming Lebron keeps doing his thing). Having said that, the Spurs are a damn good team so I think this is going to be a very tight series.

I agree!
I think the only way the Spurs win is if some of the Heat players don't go well!

i think it safe to assume any reasonable person would say miami would win if both teams are clicking on all cylinders. thats the beauty of sports, thats not always the case. im really excited for this series, and the spurs are a team that if they beat miami, i wouldnt be to upset. ive always liked duncan and pop.

Shut up already. What's your escape plan when this doesn't happen, apart from the "I abandoned that"?

(1) they didn't shoot 40 free throws and still won it, but it was not the important game I was refering to?

(2) the series went to 7 games, but it's all about getting more money from the Finals?

(3) the Spurs win the series, LeBron choked again?

Which one will it be this time?
