Who's going it all? Will the Nuggets come back? etc...

The finals is probably going to be the Heat vs Thunder. Well, that's what I think, so, what's your opinion?

Okay I think that last 12 sec. play that OKC had was too rushed. They had 12 seconds left and Durant took the shot right away. And why did he pull up? I think he should have gone hard into Lebron and tried to draw the fowl and still maybe get the basket. Bad play call, but still was a very good game by both teams. I still believe OKC in 7

That game proves that even Kevin Durant can choke. That's what all OKC fans get for making fun of Kobe when he choked.

well if he did he would of had to take the risk of getting the offensive foul and getting fouled out
he made the right decision

anyone can choke
but it wasn't so bad
well at least in the 4th




I can't say OKC lost cuz something was wrong with those referees
they weren't calling those fouls and they said OKC was doing offensive fouls
if they called the foul on james then OKC would of won

im still on OKC

OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC OKC

They still lost, but yes fouls were not called equally. Oh well though.

There was still 12 seconds left on the clock though. Even if the shot had gone in, Miami would have 10 seconds to get a shot off on the other end of the court.

When Kobe choked tell me, how much hate did he get?

so durant is better

I still respect LBJ more. LBJ is not that far behind, it's bearly a .12 % difference which is really nothing. LBJ still goes 20+ in the Thunder's home. Tell me how much concentration do you need to score shots when thousands of fans are booing at you. Tell me how easy it is to get super confident when thousands of fans are screaming out "MVP" when you have the ball in your hand.

Tied 1-1 I was pretty surprised that OKC lost a home. The advantage is will the Heat now. But if they want to win they need the whole big 3 to play a factor.

yah its true
and the last shot was a foul so OKC would of tied it
send it to OT and then win

yah but OKC needed him desperatly


When Kobe choked tell me, how much hate did he get?


well it was cuz he choked badly

It doesn't matter if they do great in the 1st half or whatever. It's about finishing the game with a dominating win. They need to get to the line and make free throws. They should not commit silly and stupid fouls. Harden needs to step up and make his threes or drive into the lane and score. Because right now, the Heat's big three are owning the Thunder.

compared to their regular starts they did good in the 1st half


They need to get to the line and make free throws


what are you talking about
the thunder are the highest free throw team in the league


They should not commit silly and stupid fouls.


true

Harden needs to step up and make his threes or drive into the lane and score


VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY VERY
true
bosh is killing Harden


Because right now, the Heat's big three are owning the Thunder.


actually they are not
durant is just beating james by a couple of points
wesbrook and wade are back and forth
and bosh is killing harden (@quoted line above)
if harden picks up his game tonight
the thunder can win


Since when was Durant a MVP?


uhh he is the highest scoring player in the league
he got MVP for the all star game this year
he is the most accurate player in the league
anymore questions


Exactly and tell me how good does Kobe do in his home court?


not better then durant does in his home court thats for sure


The Laker fans never bood at Durant.

I'm talking about the finals. They're only shooting 70.1 percent. And Durant's not getting to the line in the fourth quarter. And had 4 points in the fourth.

He's talking about the MVP. As in the MVP. The one Lebron got.

Who cares about the all star game? It's a game to have fun and dunk all over the place. Also, put up some trick shots to entertain.

I don't think Durant is physical enough to handle Lebron. For points they basically cancel each other out, but on Defense Lebron is more Physical and "In your face" type of guy. If Miami wins tonight then I think they win in 5, if OKC wins then I stick with them in 7.

Agreed. No Defense is played at all.
bosh is killing Harden

Of course he is, Bosh is a power forward, Harden a guard.
cuz they no its no use for his AWESOME shooting skills

Awesome shooting skills? He is really good, but awesome? No. Jordan was awesome, Steve Nash, awesome, Kevin Durant awesome? Not yet. Maybe in a few years when he gains experience. He takes some inexperienced shots sometimes. Not as many as Westbrook. He is killing me with his shots. I can't believe some of the ones he takes and others that he takes and misses. Like that 3!?! that was a terrible shot.
