2. Who wins tonight’s game (and why)?
Justen: The Heat. Look at their record this year after a playoff loss. Undefeated. That’s pretty impressive. They’re not going to allow themselves to lose back-to-back home games in the Finals.
Kris: I think the Heat make the proper adjustments and show some heart and pride to even the series at one game apiece.
DJ: Miami. San Antonio could very well win this game, but I have too much confidence in LeBron James as a player. If this was the pre-2012 LeBron, I would pick the Spurs. But the LebBon of the past two seasons steps up when counted upon. He should do the same in this game.
Ehsan: The Miami Heat. Why? We have LeBron James and I don’t see him allowing the Heat do be down 0-2 in this series. Also, the Heat will not likely have a repeat of that putrid offensive performance in the second half again.
Eric: Lets not panic. Miami Heat wins tonight. We have seen this before — the Heat have struggled in recent Game 1’s against earlier opponents. The Heat will have LeBron James stick Parker. I expect Chris Bosh to come out of his shooting nightmare and produce tonight. Spo will have the game plan ready. No surprises. Heat even it up tonight before heading to San Antonio.
