That is a true statement. If the Heat play like they did in the losses to the Pacers, the Spurs are going to beat them going away. In fact, if they play like they did in the close wins, they will lose. The Spurs aren't going to lose close games very often. Bosh and/or Wade need to show up.

I want to see them play that aggressive ball like they did last night... only for every game. They were driving and crashing the boards with reckless abandon. If that Heat team shows up, they are unstoppable. But it seems that Heat team only shows up when they sense urgency. They can't wait until the series is at a deciding game to do that because the Spurs are way too experienced and savvy to make the mistakes Indiana did last night (turnovers and fouls).

Go Spurs.

Dear Tim Duncan,

Please show the world how overrated Chris Bosh is.

Thanks

The Spurs are going to be a tough matchup. I was pulling for this final. I personally think the Spurs pose more of a threat than the pacers did for Miami. Sure the pacers had a huge size advantage and may be more physical than San Antonio but if you watch the heat, you notice they thive on mistakes. They are great (when focused and playing hard) at taking away what their opponent likes to do. Looking at the bulls and pacers series, they are most effective when they are stifling on defense and letting the offense flow off opponents mistakes.
Last night was a prime example.

That said, the Spurs really don't make mistakes and have so many weapons and tendencies that it will be really though for Miami to take any one thing away. I doubt Miami comes out as flat as they did against Indy but the spurs are a much better team.

This should be an awesome one. Spurs in 6. Or heat in 7? Or spurs in 5...who knows. Ill be rooting for spurs hard though. I just love their bran if basketball. Lebron will have plenty more chances, I would love to are Duncan snag one more.

alot of who wins the finals is who is in rhythm at the time...
like a hitter that is hot or in a slump..

remember 2011
kidd/midget barerra/terry were all shooting very well....

if kidd was in rhythm/shooting well in the pacers series..the knicks could of won that series..

Then have him and Pop retire? Either way, I don't care who wins, but I'm kinda pulling for the Spurs because of a dumb bet I made but it's gonna be a good series

Let Tim Duncan sign the ticket to commemorate the Spurs' win.

My wife and I intended to make a game if the Spurs-Heat matched up, but I'm booked solid this month.

Have fun. GO SPURS GO!

That's awesome! I was close to going to the one in 07 with the Cavaliers, but they sold out in minutes. The lady said we were 2 minutes too late of getting tickets. Take some pictures of your seats, and enjoy a heck of a game & series!

Yes! The only stuff he is doing is being a motivational speaker, and benchwarmer for the Heat though

Paying $200 to watch the Spurs win is well worth it.

That's crazy! Not gonna lie though, if I had the cash to spend I'd buy a ticket. It'd be a really cool experience!

Game 1 tonight!!

I don't remember any big group of analysts going against Miami since LeBron went there they are never considered the underdogs
