Miami Heat Set to Take on Oklahoma City Thunder

Miami Heat 101  Boston Celtics  88  (Heat Win Series 4-2)

Well the Big Three of Miami all contributed in this game.  Lebron James leads the way with his 31 points and 12 rebounds.  Chris Bosh gets 19 points with three 3-pointers in the game.  When Bosh is hitting three’s, you know the Heat have a good shot at winning.  Dwayne Wade scored 23 points with one of those baskets that came on his trademark throw it up and see what happens type shot.

The Boston Celtics took their old school veterans out at the end of the game as Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, and Kevin Garnett might not be all there next year.  Pierce got 19 in the loss.  Allen put up 15.  Garnett, who had been so good throughout the playoffs, got 14 in the loss.  Rajon Rondo leads the way for the Celtics with a triple double of 22 points, 10 rebounds, and 14 assists.  Things might be turning there in Boston, but the future looks bright with Rondo there.

Miami now gets it shot at the impressive Oklahoma City Thunder.  Right off the bat, I want to say the Thunder take this series easily, but if Miami’s Big Three plays like they did tonight, it’s going to be back and forth.  This is the match up that the NBA wanted to see as it features some high star power.  Durant and James.  Westbrook and Wade.  Bosh and Ibaka.  Harden off the bench.  There’s going to be plenty of talk about match ups and who has the edge, and tomorrow I’ll give my official preview for this year’s NBA Finals.  Should be a fun and entertaining one.
