Default Who beats the Heat?

Will they beat the record of 33?

Or will they lose at home to a team like Charlotte?

Spurs will beat them in San Antonio.

According to Yahoo

I agree with spurs. I feel as if parker and duncan will look like they're 25 again in that game and expose the heat's lack of a bruising AND talented big.

imagine if the heat still had the shaq that won them the trophy, along with wade, lebron, bosh, and allen off the bench raining 3's?

it;d be the best team of all time

I voted for boston but on second thought I think miami will beat miami
They play down to opponents so they'll fiddle away the streak against some sub.500 team they should pummel

They get Charlotte again, then Philly, after NY, to get to 33. Could only put 10 options up.

Spurs are more than just a 3 point shooting team with Parker healthy they have 4 guys who can score in the paint no problem. Parker, Duncan, Splitter, and Leonard. If anyone of you guys have been watching the Spurs lately Leonard and Splitter have been doing quite well and they have carried the team on various nights.

Leonard dropped 24, 13, 4, and 2 last night. He will be capable of carrying the team in the future.

Spurs almost beat them with their bench, so they have the best chance to end this. I also think they have the best chance out of any team to beat them in the finals. I'm convinced they would have won last year against them if they hadn't broke down against OKC.

Harden was one of the main reasons the Spurs lost that series

Just look at that shots he made at 1:05 and 1:45 in game 5. Ridiculous.

If Rose was back I'd have given CHI a shot but as it stands..... only SA.

Heat have been on an absolute tear since the Blazers beat them. Losing to the stinky Blazers literally woke up a monster.

Spurs or nobody, the rest are junk in comparison. A team in the east my fluke out and win, but none stand a legit shot at beating them. They likely won't hit 33, but they won't get stopped by anyone in the east to go to the finals.

I took Cleveland. Why? Who knows. I honestly don't know who, if anyone, can beat them right now.

Boston has won 11 straight at home I believe, so I think that's going to be where their streak ends. If not, then at San Antonio. Pop will find a way.

Boston / SA are the obvious hurdles in the way of history. I think SA & Pop really need that game regardless and are going bring their best.

They could really use a mental edge over Miami in the event they start the NBA Finals on the road is South Beach.
