Conference Finals Heat vs Celtics

What a game it was last night, the Celtics brought out all the dogs and still were not able to get over the hump. Kudos to Rondo with the 1st ever 40+ point 10 assist game in Boston playoff history. Yes he played spectacular he did what Cousy, Bird, and Russell all didn’t and it still wasnt enough. And before everybody jumps on LBJ for that miss he played magnificient with his near triple-double and timely plays. It was a jumpshot that can be made BE HAPPY at least he took the shot this time instead of passing to Haslem, who by the way had a nice game to go along with Battier and Chalmers. D-Wade did what he had to scoring 8 points in OT and seemingly putting the nail in the coffin on the series. Unlike the Thunder series I think this one is over Boston will play formidable like they have for the past couple years but I know at least half of my Finals prediction will be right as the Heat will probably win in 5 with the Celtics getting Game 3. They just dont have enough anymore to get them over the hump as Game 2 looked like the straw that broke the camel’s back.

Conference Finals Spurs vs. Thunder

So my Thunder prediction isn’t looking so hot right now but its onyl 2 games so no panic. I will say being a person who roots for the Thunder I am considerably discouraged because their BIG 3 scored 88 points the 2nd most ever by a trio in NBA Playoff History and they lost. When that happens it almost seems as though theyd be a guarantee win but no because the Spurs once again put on a clinic with ball movement and phenomenal shooting. 2 ways the Thunder can get back in this series first bench Perkins he a fish out of water against this finesse type Offense of the Spurs he just can not keep up. 2nd Russell Westbrook must be more efficient if you shoot 25 times you need at least 10 FT attempts because Harden and Durant were a combined 20 for 30 from  the field and got to line 10+ times each while Westbrook was 10 for 25 from the field and only shot 5 FTs pass them the ball more they could have both went for 40 as effecient as they were. They get to the line…Russell must do the same.
