The Miami Heat are on the brink of another trip to the NBA Finals. That would be the optimistic way of looking at things for the Heat. The pessimistic fan will look at it as the Heat being on the brink of failing to win a championship for the second time in three years.
Game 7 is not going to be easy for the Miami Heat, as stars Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh continue to struggle and Lebron James carries the load on his own. The Heat are going to need to be at their best game 7 or they will be watching the NBA Finals from home for the first time in two years.
I picked the Heat in five games and was dead wrong about that. The Pacers are a great team and have matched up perfectly with the Heat. With that said, the Heat are the more talent loaded team and also have more experience. They should be able to handle business on their home court.
I will boldly predict that Chris Bosh scores 20 points and 8 rebounds, Dwyane Wade 18 points and 7 assists, and Lebron James 30 points, 10 assists, and 8 rebounds. The Heat take game 7 by the final score of 108-97, securing a third straight trip to the NBA Finals.
