    Default Who will win the 2013 NBA Finals

    Great game 1 and brilliant basketball. Only 12 turnovers between both teams, Spurs only had 4 despite great defense on the part of both teams.

    I think the Spurs win it in 5 or 6, stealing game 1 in Miami isn't easy. Interesting move by Spoelstra was going without a PG in the final few minutes and having Lebron guard Tony Parker.

    Tony Parker with the play of the game to ice it. what a play. what a game.
    although cHeat have the athleticism in LeBone and DuhWade, along with 3 power
    in Rayallen, Mrs. Miller and Chalmers, I think the Spurs' Popovitch will outcoach
    the cHeaters, and the original big 3 of Duncan, Parker and ManoMan will outplay
    their hotheaded opponents. Spurs in 6.

    Spurs will win, I voted 7 but I meant 6 or maybe 5 (?) can't remember the game order for finals. Is it 2-3-2? I don't think the Spurs will lose at home.

    Not one... Not two... Not three... Not four... Not five... Oh wait just one Championship!

    I was arguing with my best friend( and Lebron nutswinger) about this fact. I tried to tell him that Parker is an elite PG who won't give the game away and will be a handful for Miami's nonexistent backcourt. He countered that "best player on the planet" Lebron is the best on the ball defender in the league and "Jordanlike" in defending guards. Tried to tell him that PiP was the better on the ball defender than Jordan and Lebron is trouble if he gets stuck guarding Parker. He tried tell me Lebron guarding Parker was a great idea"situationally." I told him that "situation" would favor the Spurs. Can't wait to talk to him today to hear his excuses for "best player on the planet" getting torched by Parker in that end of game "situation."

    Spurs played their OWN style team basketball during whole playoffs

    Heat are changing style for every opponent.


    game 1 Lebron became Steve Nash and Jason Kidd.

    Tim the real King Duncan totaly outplaed The Birdman and Haslem PJ Brown was better defender than Haslem.

    Spurs was simply unlucky during corner threes otherwise that game could be ended with bigger deficit.

    Tony its simply this is just basketball version of Xavi Heat will be making bad decision but double or even triple team he will allways pass to not covered temmate who can easly drive.

    And again as usual outstanding 4th quarter for Dwade and LE...............as usuall and NBA called him MVP.

    In 40 years of watching NBA .. Scotty Pippen showed to be the best defender of guards, then come Dennis Johnson at number 2. No player has yet to touch their pedigree of defensive-talent.

    Charmers & Cole were doing a good job on Parker and all the amazing screens Duncan kept providing for Parker.
    D.Wade is a better defender of guards then Lebron .. I didnt understand coach Spoe or Lebron decision in the 4th quarter lineup without a PG.

    I had already gave the first game to the Spurs for being a well rested old-veteran team, who 4 Title experience knew to save their energy for the 4th quarter. If the Spurs cant take it in Game-6 .. then Game-7 my money is on the Miami Heat...

    Clyde and Payton were better than Dennis Johnson. Clyde perfected the art of stealing the basketball, they probably started keeping thefts as a stat because of him and they didn't call Gary Payton the "Glove" for nothing.

    I believe that Heat will win in &. First off because NBA wants TV ratings and money so no doubt it will go to 7 in that aspect. And as for the winning team? Heat will win because Spurs are just to old to go that many games. But no doubt that it will go to 7. Especially if Joey Crawford has any say in that. He wants all the TV time he can get.

    Good-one .. Payton (Glove) was a great defender on the Sonics, but Dennis Johnson took the Sonics to the FINALS to win the MVP in 1978-79.
    And Clyde Frazier defense slipped away once we signed Earl Pearl Monroe, Clyde became our 20 point scorer, plus Pete Rose ate Clyde up everytime in MSG, one time for 63 points.

    Kiyaman if basketball history was a subject in school you would get an A. Me probably no better than a C student.

    BTW, RIP Dennis Johnson a great player that passed too early.

    I'd probably go for the Spurs. They are the best passing/highest IQ team in the league. Also they will expose the Heat for being undersized better than the Pacers just because they have better players, and better shooters.

    Also i think the Heat are too injured. Wade just doesn't look like Wade anymore...his speed has greatly diminished. Bosh hasn't been great either this playoffs, although he's basically a SF game, 18 feet away from the Basket, so he'll probably have a couple games where he catches fire.. I think the x Factor for the Heat is someone like Shane Battier. They can't play him right now cuz his 3 isn't dropping, but if it does that could change the series cuz they need someone with his help defense.

    statisticly SPurs are just simply killing

    they are 5-0 all time in NBA finals in game 1

    since GSW even the series to 2-2 in semis Spurs are 9-0 right now it means they r 13-2

    Heat exibition with Bucks was 4-0 they lost game 1 with injured Bulls without Deng Rose Hinrich we kno why

    and vs Pacers with help of refs they were forced to game 7 which NBA wanted Heat in Finals

    Now SPurs interesting if it will happend same as vs Dallas game 2 will be key game for this series

    unfortunately you (might) have to sit thru a stupid yahoo commercial, but it's worth it.

    Pacers beat themselves, they committed 111 TO's in 7 games. If they committed half that many they might be playing the Spurs.

    Yahoo Sports described the Spurs style of play as methodical. I have to agree, they have been a machine in the playoffs. Committing only 4 turnovers against the ball pressure of the Heat was amazing.
