NBA playoffs are on and interesting results so far.

How far can Philadelphia and Indiana go in the East? Can they beat a Boston/Atlanta or Miami to get through the Western Conference Finals?

Oklahoma City Thunder looking great after sweeping Dallas but can they back it up against the Los Angeles Lakers (given they beat Denver)?

San Antonio looking solid against the Jazz but will they have to face last years nemesis in Memphis the next round, or the up and coming Los Angeles Clippers with Chris Paul in devastating form?

Thoughts?

I would love my Spurs to win, but the Thunder just look so good and fresh right now.

I just don't want to see Miami win at all!!!

Finals:

Tuesday 12/6 at Oklahoma
Thursday 14/6 at Oklahoma
Sunday 17/6 at Miami
Tuesday 19/6 at Miami
Thursday 21/6 at Miami
Sunday 24/6 at Oklahoma
Tuesday 26/6 at Oklahoma

Would love to see this series go to the 7th game.

San Antonio, after 20 straight playoff victories and holding a 2-0 lead over Oklahoma went down 2-4, and Miami finally toppled the Celtics 4-3.

LeBron James has another chance for a championship ring as has Kevin Durant. Should be a great series.

First blood to Oklahoma 105-94.
For the Thunder, Durant hit 36, Westbrook 27. James hit 30 for the Heat.

I believe Heat were 13 points up in the 2nd quarter.

I just have a feeling Miami bust their gut against Boston and used much of their energy there. Be interesting to watch the next 2 games.

Yes, I was thinking the same thing. I haven't been able to pick a winner of the series, but after seeing Miami blow a 13 point lead, and the fact Oklahoma have three more games at home, I'm leaning towards the Thunder. IMHO, Miami really needs to win Game 2.

Heat have won the vital 2nd game to even the series at 1-1.

James hit 32 pts for the Heat, Durant 32 for the Thunder.

Heat wins the 3rd game 91-85, LeBron James hit 29 points and Dwayne Wade 25 for Miami, Kevin Durant 25 and Russell Westbrook 19 for the Thunder.

Miami now takes a 2-1 lead into the all-important game 4. It's generally regarded the team who wins game 4 is hot favourite to win the series. If the Heat can pull this one off, they have a chance to close the series in their final game at home.

Needless to say, Oklahoma will be desperate for a win.

Heat have got up in the definitive Game 4 after trailing by 14 at 1/4 time. For the heat, James hit 26, Wade 25, Chambers 25. Westbrook's 43 and Durant's 28 weren't enough to prevent the Heat taking a 3-1 lead into Miami's final home match.

It's very hard to make a case for Oklahoma, but you never know. Oklahoma's attitude will be before this game they needed 3 more wins. After the game, they still need 3 more wins. Good luck to them, it would be nice to see them prolong the series past Game 5.

I've seen enough sport to suggest anything is possible, and apart from the 3-1 scoreline, it has been a very even series. The only downside is the Heat have three guns all firing, the Thunder only appear to have two.

It's all over, Miami win the 5th and deciding game 121-106.

A bit of an anti-climax in a way.

As bad as this sounds, the series was always going to come down to how well Westbook played. He has all the talent but also the ability to have brain explosions when least required.

As good as LeBron was (trust me, I hate saying that), Westbrook blew 2 games for OKC.

Bring on the Olympic tournament. Got my money on Spain.

Saw them play in the Eurobasket comp last year and they play beautiful team basketball.

How the US adapt will be the biggest issue for them. Will Wade, LeBron and Kobe play? With no Rose and Howard I just cant seem them winning.
