NBA Finals Chronicles, Thursday June 21

This could be it for these articles, but don't worry, I have a lot of exciting things planned for this blog.

What will happen tonight? It will be the end.

The Miami Heat will win the NBA championship on this the hottest day of the year so far (at least in New York). They will be partying all over the world after tonight.

I still feel that the Thunder have a better team than Miami, but OKC is inventing ways to lose. They outplay the Heat, make comebacks, and still, they are somehow down 1-3 in this series.

The Thunder only have 2 people that can consistently hit shots, in Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant. Their third option, James Harden has been up too late tending to the birds in his beard that he's been too tired to perform at all. Miami happens to have the Big 3, plus Mario Chalmers and Shane Battier along with them to put the ball in the basket. If Chalmers plays like he did in Game 4, then there is absolutely no way that the Heat lose. I do not expect anything from James Harden, but if he gets at least 20 points, I can see his team winning this game.

During this series, LeBron James has already proven that he is in fact the best player in the game of basketball. He does everything, and other than shooting jumpers, he does it better than Durant. Much like he did in Game 6 against the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals, Lebron knows that he has to win this game, and will come out on fire. During that game, he was extremely focused and had a very scary look on his face that said, "I'm going to score on you, and I don't care what you have to say about it. I will also put you on lockdown, and you won't score any points. See that painted area over there, I own it." He will do that again tonight. He wants it too much, and so does the rest of his team. He will most likely spend a lot of the game in the post, which is a part of his game that he developed over the summer, and he has the ability and the strength to be completely unstoppable down low, and he realizes this and will use it to his advantage.

While I think that they will lose, if the Thunder in fact pull this off, they do have a legitimate chance of winning the series in 7 games back in OKC.
