Heat vs Spurs NBA Final Picks

Game one was pretty close until the Heat just couldn’t keep up in the fourth quarter.  Certainly depth is a factor when that happens and we all knew that Miami was the team for whom that might be a real problem in this series.[ad-4468020]

Adding to their problems is that they now have to bounce back in game two or else risk losing touch in the series before they even play a home game. There is a lot riding on this one for Miami.

Miami’s result was predictable as they did not get enough from player not named James, Wade and Bosh.

That might have been OK against teams from the East but that is not likely to be enough in this series. Ray Allen showed that there is still some life in his shot but they need more production than they received from the likes of Norris Cole.

Unless their stars explode they other players because I don’t think their defense is good enough to hold down the Spurs repeatedly.

Similar to G1 it is very tempting when you see a team as good as Miami with a plus sign next to their name. Don’t get sucked in as this team has not fared well when an underdog this season.

I am certainly not expecting them to lose by 15 like they did in G1 but this number is still just a couple of possessions so the value is with the home side.

San Antonio

The Spurs got a convincing victory going away in G1.  The victory means that they can continue their strategy of using their entire roster, though I doubt that Popovich was planning to deviate much from the game plan that brought them so much success during the season and in the playoffs to this point.

Winning just makes it easier to stick to your principles.

I an individual level things worked out very well for the Spurs in the opener.  Tim Duncan was dominant, missing only one shot from the field while scoring 21 points with 10 rebounds while Tony Parker, who was a question mark made big contributions of 19 points and 8 assists.

The Spurs had 5 players in double figures for the game with Manu Ginobili sparking the action of the second unit.

After not covering in the first 6 games against Dallas San Antonio has been 9-3 ATS since.

All three of those losses were on the road and I think that is a trend that will continue with another victory on Sunday.

This one should probably finish a little closer than G1 but you probably won’t have to sweat the final possession.
