I just think the teams are so closely matched that the home team will end up winning each game. OKC is good on the road, but San Antonio is better at home than OKC on the road and same case vice versa.

Home team has won every game in the conference finals so far 8-0, factoring both east and west.

Game 5 will be huge!

yeah but the east has been better games. I'm going to watch tonight. The underdogs need to ride the wave from their last home win into their next away game if they are going to have a shot at winning the series.... I am surprised by Boston. I really think they have as much of a shot as the other 4 teams. I wouldn't have said that prior to this series.

Holly cow! If the Celtics can hang on and play hard for one more W tonight! It's in the Gahden and Red (Auerbach) will be looking down from the rafters.

Going to be an interesting night in the NBA for sure! I have a feeling Boston will close it out tonight and I never expected them to make it this far.

I'm officially on the Thunder Bandwagon and I think it is the best bandwagon to be on.

I never really followed them until they played the Lakers in the 2nd round of the playoffs this year. I could probably only name 3 players on their team until a couple of weeks ago. Now I can name pretty much all of them, and they have amazed me throughout these playoffs. They have so much talent, but it is their small market, appreciate each moment, work hard each day, under the radar approach to playing the game that I like so much.

Many are talking about it, and this is a great article.

I'm on the bandwagon now, for all the right reasons. This team does it right:

I say OKC need home court to win, and they will win, but it will take them all 7 games. The heat were lucky to collect themselves and sneak past a streaky Boston team. I didn't watch it because I was working but game 7 looked like a blow out from the score. Did any of you watch it? Was the score a good representation of the game?

OKC. The key to the Heat is LeBron. Didn't catch Game 6 vs. Boston but Game 5 it was the Celtics, the Heat & LeBron. Stop him and you stop the Heat. I hear a Thunder storm in the distance.

Is D.Wade playing injured? If not he has no excuse for sucking so bad. Also why the hell didnt they start Bosh? Okay I see the bringing him off the bench strategy, give the 2nd team some scoring options but this is the NBA, you get 12 players on a team and only 7 of them are allowed to play in the game for some reason. The others are just there to practice with unless an injuring happens.
I'm loving the Durant and Westbrook show. I hope they can still do it in Miami, at least once.

Too many fouls called, and badly called. I watched last nights game at it was, kind of boring even though it was close. Not too many exciting plays or moves. They replayed a LBJ lay-up many times that wasn't impressive at all, probably due to the lack of exciting plays in the game. I feel like the free throw line is crucial in this series. Also looked like Lebron and Wade both felt minor injuries last night. We'll see how they hold up next game. Also Dang Thunder had a huge lead in the start, didn't take long to blow it in the 2nd quarter though. Its a game of runs though I guess.

Can't believe the Lakers got Nash and Dwight Howard. Well I can believe it but it sucks I thought deron williams and brooklyn would get him and actually be a decent team this year. I wonder if OKC will still be a force or if they should just skip the regular season and go straight to a Heat vs Lakers final...
