Predictions For Heat Thunder Betting – Thunder Look To Take Two-Nothing

Posted by Craig Parsons on 6/13/2012 3:08:20 PM

The Oklahoma City Thunder has won all nine of their home games in these playoffs. With the chance to go up two-games-to-none on the Miami Heat in the NBA finals, you can expect Kevin Durant and company to do everything in their power to extend their perfect sports betting online record at home. Durant finished game one with a game-high 36 points, eight rebounds, and four assists, another illustration of just how dominant of an offensive player he has become.

The fact that Durant was once again the most dominant player in an Oklahoma City playoff game only adds to his reputation as one of the best in the game, if not the best. Lebron James finished game one with six less points than Durant despite taking four more shots, and will need to be that much better with both Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh struggling to find their form.

There is no doubt that injuries have played a significant role in both Wade and Bosh struggling from the field in game one, but the bottom line is that with another NBA title on the line the Heat are going to have to find a way to win with what they have. Lebron was absolutely dominant with Miami facing elimination in the Eastern conference finals against the Boston Celtics, and he will have to find a way to lead his team to victory on the road in this series if he is going to avoid becoming the first three-time NBA MVP to lose in his first three trips to the NBA finals.

While Durant’s numbers were better than Lebron’s in game one, he did have the luxury of getting 27 points from Russell Westbrook, even though Westbrook did take more shots overall. It is hard to compare Lebron and Durant as long as the latter continues to get more from his supporting cast, but the bottom line is that with Westbrook, Serge Ibaka, and James Harden continuing to get the job done, the Thunder simply have more options. Harden only had five points on six shots off the bench in game one, but if Oklahoma City needs more from him, he will be there.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The Thunder got the better of Miami despite not needing much from Harden and Ibaka at the offensive end, and that could be a sign of major trouble ahead for the Heat. Betting fans saw what Lebron could do when he takes over a game in the Eastern conference finals, but with Wade and Bosh continuing to struggle, Oklahoma City could take its second straight win even if James is able to duplicate that effort.
