I'm pulling for the Spurs for my guy Timmy D to win his 5th ring, but I've got the Heat winning this in 7. LeBron will carry the team to 2 wins, and one of the role players (i.e. Miller, Allen, Battier, etc) will sink a bunch of 3s to help win the other two. But then again, I had Memphis beating the Spurs and they got swept so what do I know?

I have the Spurs winning this series in 6. It should be a very close series, but if the Spurs continue to play the way that they have then they really are nearly unbeatable.

Spurs in 6 or 7 games. The only way the Heat can slow down Parker is by putting James on him and Leonard's length and size will cause some problems for James.

I think the Heat win in 7, but they will need guys not named Lebron to play well if they want to win.  The Spurs offense is about as clinical as you can get, they have a very effective system and they run it to perfection when everyone is healthy, so IMO you have to outscore them to win.  I think the Heat can because I dont think Duncan is going to be the same kind of rim protector Hibbert was last series.  They will need to help when Lebron gets in the lane, and thats when Miami's 3 point shooting kills teams

 

Should be a great series though, I can see it going either way.

Duncan is averaging 1.7 blocks and Splitter is averaging .9 blocks per game in the Playoff's. During the regular season DUncan averaged close to 3 blocks per game.

 

 Against Memphis they averaged close to 4 blocks per game combined. I think they can protect the paint fairly well.  They absolutely can't get into foul trouble though. Leonard's also going to have to effective at using his reach to keep Lebron from driving as much.

Yeah thats the hard part.  You have to go straight up, take the contact, and still contest the shot or else Lebron is gonna either hit the layup or go the the line.   Hibbert did a fantastic job defensively last series (it showed in Indiana's defensive efficiency when Hibbert was off the court), and I dont know if Duncan and Splitter have to size to do the same thing (having a body like Hibbert or Marc Gasol helps a lot)

 

I'm really excited to see how the Spurs approach defense, you know Pop has something up his sleeve after this long wait

If the Heat play like they did against the Pacers then I feel that the Spurs will win the series in five or six. But if Bosh and Wade return to form then I think it will go the full seven games, and the Heat will edge it in a decider. 

 

My bet is on the Spurs, and personally I'd like to see them win instead of the Heat.

2:1 odds in favor or Mia, and last time I checked they were a 5 pt fave tonight. 

 

My gut says SA wins the series. Certainly will be pulling for them.

Good first half, at one point it looked like Miami would run away with it, but the spurs regrouped and are just down 3. Buzzer beater by duncan was huge.

It's very back and forth right now, one team makes a run, then the other. Really good game so far.

LeBron really working on that triple double.  He needs to attack the basket a bit more and get the Spurs in foul trouble.

Spurs missing a lot of open 3s. Need Parker to start taking it to the hoop.

I can't believe how many Danny Green has missed... 3 of 8 from three point land isn't exactly what you want out of your three point specialist. Hopefully he can get it back under control.
