    Nice job NBA! 9pm starts means a 11:45 finish. Too late for this east coast fan.

    This can’t be right. Heat have home court advantage.

      ndamus4 – I think you’re misreading. It’s San Antonio AT Miami in games 1,2,6,7. Miami does have the home court advantage playing AT home during those games.

    Spurs. Because team>individual.

      I bet you are from the West. i know this because you don’t watch any eastern games. The Heat are in the East and based on your idiotic comment, I know you have NEVER WATCHED a Heat game.

      The Heat play the MOST beautiful of team basketball the game has seen. They have one of the most unselfish superstars to have ever stepped on the court, Lebron James is his name, just in case you have never hear of him you fool.

      Now GTFO and throw yourself in front of a train since you are using up precious oxygen.

    I love bball but im rdy for this season to end. The playoffs in general were dull and predictable and worse of all the spurs are in the finals….

    I hate 2-3-2 format for the finals!!! The nba needs to switch it to the same 2-2-1-1-1 that they use for all other series. With modern jets and the fact that the nba has 3 days between a couple games anyhow then travel is nothing!!

  6. cantonbound13 - Jun 4, 2013 at 6:41 AM

    Spurs in 6. America can finally see the real big 3, not espn’s 3.

      HEAT OWN the spurs- should be easy

      • bucrightoff - Jun 4, 2013 at 8:46 AM

        Own? Are you going off the regular season? Cause I mean Indiana did beat Miami in the regular season matchup….oh you silly Heat fans.

      • cantonbound13 - Jun 4, 2013 at 10:52 AM

        Own??? Please don’t speak, you only show the world your a complete idiot when you do.

      • powerpc20 - Jun 4, 2013 at 2:56 PM

        “your a complete idiot”… oh, the irony. stupid is as stupid does.

    hojo 20…dvr the game if its 2 late

  8. jjones314 - Jun 4, 2013 at 8:23 AM

    The heat don’t have a big 3. The heat are lebron James and that’s it. Wade and bosh barely ever show up. So of course San Antonio should sweep Miami. They are the better team.

  9. bucrightoff - Jun 4, 2013 at 8:31 AM

    Only question is Spurs in 4 or 5. I give the Heat one game based on my respect for LeBron. But the Spurs are at least two levels above the Indiana team Miami just struggled mightly to beat.

  10. jjones314 - Jun 4, 2013 at 8:51 AM

    Spurs will win but one thing about Miami, them boys can play some D when they really want to. I’m talkin lockdown, smothering, man to man D.

    There only hope will be to create points off turnovers. If the Spurs start turning that ball over, watch out this thing might go 7.

  11. cantonbound13 - Jun 4, 2013 at 10:54 AM

    All 9:00 starts? 1972 can’t stay up that late.

  12. spursaretheteamtobeat - Jun 4, 2013 at 12:54 PM

    Heat doesn’t phase the Spurs. They’re from Texas! GO SPURS GO!!!!!

  13. robones - Jun 4, 2013 at 1:05 PM

    Its so funny how there is so much Miami Hate!!! i guess this is the garbage that’s left after the Heat dismantled all of your teams! hahaha!! There is nothing left for your sorry a$$es but to come to a Miami vs Spurs forum and bash the Heat! you guys are fools!!!!

    Thunder beat the Spurs in 6 last year… EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER concluded that the Spurs cannot handle an quick and athletic team. The Thunder would have gone to the finals AGAIN were not for Westbrook’s injury.

    The Heat DESTROYED the Thunder! The Heat OWN the Thunder and they OWN the Spurs.

    I literally crapped my pants laughing when I hear idiots commenting Spurs in 4 maybe five. You all a bunch of idiots. Thank GOD you guys dont analyze basketball games for a living because you will be in welfare.

    This is how its gonna play out. Heat over Spurs in 6 games.

    Miami takes the first two home games back to back for a 2-0 lead.

    Spurs win the next two games at home to tie the series 2-2.

    The Heat win the last game on the Road for a 3-2 lead and Heat back home to close out the series on the next game 4-2.

    Remember this fools because I’ll be coming back to this forum to comment on all of your posts.

    San Antonio Spurs will win for sure and end a rein of bunch of punks, floppers,cry babies, and everything that is bad about basketball. San Antonio plays basketball the right way. You can see that 25% of the seats in Miami are empty, even during the playoffs. Their own city does not like them either !!! DAAAA BUUULLLLSSSS!!!
