Spurs at Thunder Game 4 Pick

Three games into the Western Conference Finals, the Oklahoma City Thunder finally resemble the team that was expected to be here.

Not the team that arrived in San Antonio without their defensive MVP. Or the team that lost the rebounding battle, while allowing the San Antonio Spurs to shoot at least 50 percent from the floor in the first two games.

Heat at Pacers Game 4 Pick

If Ray Allen decides to make a sequel to He Got Game, let Spike Lee start with the footage from the fourth quarter of Game 3, where Allen scored all 16 of his points in the second half, including going 4-for-4 from downtown. To struggle through the first 36 minutes of a game and then catch fire is one thing, but to have a performance like that at the age of 38 against the NBA’s best defensive team is another.

Spurs at Thunder Game 3 Pick

Already down 0-2 to the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals, the Oklahoma City Thunder are searching for a spark that will get them back into this series.

Despite the storm of the Spurs not only striking once, but twice in San Antonio, a return home for Kevin Durant and co. is a place to start, where the Thunder are about to face their biggest test of the season. Although it’s only Game 3, it’s certainly a Game 7 for the Thunder, as 110 teams have tried, but all have failed to comeback from a 3-0 series deficit.

Pacers at Heat Game 3 Pick

For months, the Indiana Pacers fought long and hard to earn home court advantage throughout the playoffs. For 48 minutes of Game 1 and through three quarters of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals, it was. Until LeBron James and Dwyane Wade outscored the Pacers 25-20 in the fourth quarter en route to a four-point win.

Spurs vs Thunder Game 2 Pick

Not even Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook were able to will the Oklahoma City Thunder to a Game 1 victory.

Combining for 53 points, KD and Westbrook did everything they could to keep Oklahoma City close, but it simply wasn’t enough. OKC’s two superstars already were carrying the weight of the Thunder’s championship dreams. Now without Serge Ibaka, whose absence was visibly felt in Game 1 will be asked to take their MVP-caliber games to another level in Game 2 and beyond.

Heat vs Pacers Game 2 Pick

Down 1-0 to the Indiana Pacers, the Miami Heat are exactly where they want to be.

All four times the Heat previously lost a Game 1 with LeBron James on the roster, they have come back to win the series, including the 2012 NBA Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Thunder vs Spurs Series Preview & Game 1 Pick

With Serge Ibaka out for the remainder of the playoffs because of a calf injury, more pressure has now been put on Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook to lead the Thunder past the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference finals. Dating back to 2012, the Thunder have won 10 out of the last 12 against the Spurs, including a 4-0 regular season series sweep by an average of 9.2 points per game. But this series has taken a different direction without the Thunder big man being available to defend against Tim Duncan.

Heat vs Pacers Series Preview & Game 1 Pick

The wait is finally over.

One year after the Miami Heat defeated the Indiana Pacers in the Eastern Conference Finals, they meet again with a conference championship at stake. But unlike last year, the Pacers will have home-court advantage this time around.

Clippers vs Thunder Game 6 Pick

Chris Paul went from hero to goat in a matter of seconds.

While the final 11 seconds of Game 5 will forever live in infamy, it will forever be Paul’s worst 45-second stretch of his career that could very well haunt the Los Angeles Clippers for an entire off-season. After seemingly having Tuesday’s Game 5 in hand and blowing a 13-point lead with four minutes left, the Clippers must survive Thursday night’s game in order to live another day.

Blazers vs Spurs Game 5 Pick

No team has ever come back from a 3-0 series deficit.

After the Portland Trail Blazers 103-92 victory over the No. 1 seed in the Western Conference, San Antonio Spurs, although they still hold a commanding 3-1 series lead, the door is still open for the greatest comeback in NBA history.
