Conference Finals Preview

EASTERN CONFERENCE

Pacers vs. Heat: In a rematch of last years intense conference finals, neither team is as good as they were last year.  The Pacers have a record of 14-14 in their last 28 games and have struggled to beat the weakest teams in the NBA.  Last year they prided themselves on team chemistry while this year they are trying to rediscover who they are as a squad.  The Heat lost much of their bench scoring and they are starting to rely too heavily on LeBron.  Last year’s series went to 7 games, but this year it won’t be down to the wire.  The Pacers will be able to make it interesting in some games, but they are too inconsistent at the moment to be a serious threat and the Heat will win the series 4-2.

WESTERN CONFERENCE

NBA: San Antonio Spurs at Oklahoma City Thunder

Thunder vs. Spurs: This series will be much more tightly contested than the Eastern Conference series.  Both the Spurs and the Thunder know each other well and have been rolling lately.  The Thunder however lost Serge Ibaka for the rest of the postseason due to a knee injury suffered in their last series against the Clippers.  The loss of Ibaka will seriously hinder the Thunder against the size of the Spurs.  The Spurs will come out on top to win the series 4-3 and they have the best chance out of either team to dethrone King James and the Miami Heat.

NBA FINALS

Spurs vs. Heat: In a re-match of last years finals, the Spurs come in looking like the better team.  The Spurs will be trying to make up for their miscues in the Finals from last year where they had the championship all but locked up when they let the Heat come back and win it all.  Veteran leaders Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili, and Tony Parker will not let that happen again as the Spurs win the 2014 NBA Finals 4-2
