The Miami Heat really controlled Game 5. Lebron James and Dwyane Wade ran havoc all over OKC. They scored buckets, they played defense, they ran the basketball court in their own pace, and they made sure OKC made tough baskets. They deserved to win the NBA title. They ran set plays, they made Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook make tough shots. The Heat ran up and down the court to get open shots. Heat players Shane Battier and Mike Miller made open three pointers.
The Heat won Game 4 by playing Miami basketball. Lebron James had 26 points, Dwyane Wade had 25 points, Mario Chalmers had 25 points, and Chris Bosh had 13. They pushed the tempo, they toughened up on the play, they outhustled the Thunder, and outscored OKC on every possession. If Miami does this regularly in Game 5, they’ll win the NBA championship. The Thunder are witnesses to Miami stardom in Lebron James and Dwyane Wade. If James and Wade want to win this, they’ll need a total team effort to do so in Game 5.
I enjoyed the pace the Miami Heat played last night. They pushed the tempo, played at their own pace, and pushed the young, pesky Thunder around. Lebron James had 29 points, Dwyane Wade had 25 points, and Chris Bosh had 10 points. They showed OKC how star power in basketball should be played. Dwyane Wade and Lebron James showed Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook that they are playing Heat basketball and that they are playing at the Heat’s tempo. For Game 4, the Miami Heat should keep using the winning formula since Game 3. Then they will be able to overcome stopping Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and their offensive attacks at the rim.
I didn’t watch the entire game, as I was too tired and had to go to bed. It must have been an exciting game, because Miami won. The Heat beat the Thunder 100-96. Lebron James had 32 points, Shane Battier had 17, Chris Bosh had 16 points, and Dwyane Wade had 24 points. This was a vengeful game for Miami as they win Game 2. Now, Miami has to go back to their home and play three games there. This is a special time for OKC, because Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and James Harden are all 23 years old and are trying to win the NBA title in their first trip together in the NBA Finals. Miami has to sustain the effort they won Game 2 and apply it to Games 3, 4, and 5.
This was an eventful Game 1. OKC played beautiful basketball against the Miami Heat. Kevin Durant showed Lebron James how a superstar should play basketball. The Thunder win the ball game 105-94. If Kevin Durant shows Lebron James how to play team ball, OKC will put Miami to shame because they are playing team basketball and Durant and his teammates are showing the star-studded Miami Heat team how to put on a basketball clinic. If Kevin Durant shows the Miami team how to play team basketball in Game 2, they might put a scare into them that Oklahoma City is for real and they are challenging Miami seriously for an NBA title.
Miami wins the decisive Game 7 in Miami and move on to face the Oklahoma City Thunder in the NBA Finals. Chris Bosh is back for Miami and the Heat suddenly have all of their guns rolling for them. I expect Miami to put on an offensive showcase as they play OKC. It’s star power in the Miami Heat versus the Oklahoma City Thunder in Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook. I also expect Lebron James to have his best series of his career.
The Miami Heat turned on the switch tonight and won Game 6 in Boston, 98-79 to force a Game 7 in Miami. Lebron James had 45 points. I believe the Heat have a habit of winning last-minute playoff games when it counts the most. Now, the Heat need the energy to put on the speed to win Game 7 on their home court now. It was a wire-to-wire finish for Miami as they led throughout the game. If Miami wins Game 7, they’ll have an unbelievable matchup with Oklahoma City.
San Antonio lost their composure down the stretch and finally lost Game 6. The Thunder win this game 107-99. The Spurs were leading for two quarters at halftime until OKC came roaring back and controlled the tempo for the second half. This is an unbelievable basketball game. I didn’t watch it on television, however I saw it on Yahoo! Sports. This is a special postseason and time for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook and James Harden are growing up and they may see the world in their own unique lenses by holding up the NBA title this year. All three of them are 23 years old and have advanced basketball skills. I really underestimated the Thunder and their youth and inexperienced and how much they had to learn and absorb from the veteran San Antonio Spurs. Now, we await the winner of the Boston-Miami series. Who will it be?
This was a fun basketball game to watch on my computer. Not only did Boston compete in this game, they did all the right things to stop the Heat from playing their basketball game. They made Lebron James and Dwyane Wade learn how to beat them by themselves by scoring baskets. It was an all-around team effort for the Celtics. Ray Allen had 13 points, Kevin Garnett had 26, Paul Pierce had 19, Brandon Bass had 10, and bench reserve Mickael Pietrus had 13 points. They win this ball game 94-90.
Exciting and great game! Way to go, OKC! Oops. I wasn’t trying to be subjective. As a basketball writer, you have to be objective and neutral when you see top games, teams, and athletes. Haaaa! There I go again! Gooo, OKC! I missed almost the entire game, but I saw the third quarter. Hahahaha! I’m not doing my job, because I’m emotional about it. OKC really broke into the Spurs. This is an exciting time for the Oklahoma City Thunder, because they are one win away and I mean one win away from beating the San Antonio Spurs and entering the NBA Finals. Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant and James Harden are growing up nicely now and Derek Fisher and Kendrick Perkins are helping the trio with their combined experience and wisdom of winning playoff games. If the Thunder can keep it up like they won Game 5 109-103, they won’t miss a beat as they become a cinderalla team in winning the NBA title.
