As you all see/read my previous 2 posts that i wrote, all of them are correctly predicted.  For this game, Heats is very good at home but OKC is mentally tough and well-prepared for this one.  Heats defense is much better at home, but I think OKC will pull this one right through and keep it close-win. My prediction will be OKC plus the UNDER. 

93-90 OKC

I agree......OKc will win.....        OKc won't start off slow 2 games ina  row....what's scary is Durant being on the bench for a while....and still almost won game 2 .........

You are right.  They won mainly because of lebron last couple minutes and KD missed the jumper for a tie. What's really bother me that battier has many opened looks and made 5 treys!  Anyways, OKC will have to slow off a little to maintain the momentum.  Under will be the right play.

I'm absolutely going with the over on this game. The over should have won last night, but the freaking blind-behind refs completely missed the foul by Lebron on Durant. And there is no way the Thunder are going to have as piss-poor of a performance in the beginning of the game as they did last night. 194?? Take it!

Parlay OKC +155 and over 193.5 pays about 4-1.  Great value IMO.

I agree country pillgrim, hard to turn down Thunder "plus points" (4) anytime.......... if  they cover it is an "over" play for sure. I'm leaning towards Heat and under!

Take Heat -4 at home and under 194. Very good series and things will 'heat' up more in game 3!

Miami played with "had to win"in game 2.  This game is not a must win for MIAMI. OKC will need this one and I dont expect a slow start for OKC.  Miami will roar back in 4th and Durant will hit this game winner.

OKc +9 is an EXCELLENT MOVE.     I'm not so sure about the over 189 though.    Why not use consistent nba logic and go with okc +9 only?   doing the over sounds a lil greedy unless u split it like 80/20 with the 80 going on okc to cover.   I'm pretty sure that okc will win straight up so I wouldn't have even teased it, but that's a good way to hedge ur bets.  Either way I can't disagree with your logic.   GOOD MOVE

You cannot take just OKC +9.  Its a tease.  I would say pass on the tease, and parlay it.  It pays a lot more and you can risk a lot less.  Odds that it falls within the tease's points are slim..

Miami had a 18-2 start in game 2....had a lead throughout the ENTIRE game and had 17 point leads at various times...and still....BARELY won...at the end.    Let's use a lil logic here....            What....do you think is going to happen...if GASP...the thunder actually start strong??????  and Kd doesn't get into foul trouble early like game 2   (KD still didn't foul out BTW, like his name is Paul Pierce) and heaven forbid Russel Westbrook makes better decisions...like he USUALLYdoes.  

and knowing this.....(I'm assuming u know NBA ball and actually watched the game, pre game, and post game analysis...) ur still calling for Miami to win EASY as you put it.    SIGH

I said whoever won game 2 would win the seris.  Now i'm throwing out whoever heads back to Oklahoma with a 3-2 lead wins the seris.

For today's game like Heat to win, but not sure by how much.  Leaning Heat-4.

As much as it pains me to say it, game 2 was for all intensive purposes a game 7.    If OKC had won then the series was over. If Miami won then they have 3 straight at home? Series is done.   OKC had there shot and blew it

If you think OKC blew their chance at this series you are gravely mistaken.  I'll pound OKC tonight because they are getting to many points.  The spread will adjust after tonight and I plan on taking Miami from game 4-7.  I hope they win but OKC is damn good.  They are very much alive and I think this will be the best finals in my lifetime.
