A majestic NBA Finals 2013 confrontation awaits thoroughly excitable live hoops action in game one in sun-kissed Dade County, as white-hot Miami Heat (66-16) host the equally unstoppable San Antonio Spurs (58-24) in an east versus west clash of the titans for the coveted Larry O’Brien trophy.

 

‘We wasn’t going to win this game with just LeBron (James) being amazing tonight. He’s been amazing, but we need timely scores, we needed everyone to be really involved.” said Dwyane Wade about teamate LeBron James.

 

Dwyane Wade added with a 21 point and 9 rebound route to edge out the Pacers, with LeBron James leading with 32 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists in dousing the Pacers championship dreams.

 

Miami Heat precisely punched their ticket to earn a hard-fought journey to the NBA finals for a second yearconsecutively after eliminating Indiana Pacers 99-76 in game seven of the Eastern Conference finals on June 3 in Miami Airlines Arena in a physically enduring series to become divisional champions. Heat center Chris Bosh experienced his post-season nightmarish form recur, shooting 3-13 from the field in game seven against a defensively adept Indiana Pacers unit in the game seven victory.

“This is what it’s all about. I dreamed of opportunities like this as a kid to have a Game 7, no matter at home or on the road. I have had multiple dreams about it. To see a dream become a reality, I’m just very blessed.” noted reigning NBA MVP, LeBron James (Miami Heat) after the Eastern Conference Finals triumph.

 

San Antonio Spurs outlasted LA Lakers (45-37), Golden State Warriors (47-35), and Memphis Grizzlies (56-26) in the NBA playoffs to reach the promised land for the first time since 2007; which saw the Spurs sweep a LeBron James-led Cleveland Cavaliers 4-0. With just two losses in the post-season, the wiley San Antonio Spurs have Kawhi Leonard, 21, and Danny Green, 25, who have performed consistently through the entire season as respectably crucial role players under Head Coach, Gregg Popovich.

 

Tony Parker and LeBron James are both sure-fire shortlisted NBA Playoff MVP candidates in shepherding their teams seeminigly single-handedly to the final. LeBron James has carried Miami Heat on his back on various occassions – notably NBA Eastern Conference finals against Indiana – and will have to challenge both Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade to elevate their intensity level and focus if the Miami Heat are to claim their third championship in seven years.

 

 

Miami Heat role players in Chris Andersen, Ray Allen, Mike Miller, Udonis Haslem and Norris Cole have all provided serviceable rotation from the bench for the Erik Spoelstra-coached reigning champions based on efforts heading into the NBA finals against San Antonio Spurs.

 

The NBA Eastern Conference Finals was a borderline down and dirty, UFC-esque dogfight for Miami Heat in pursuing another finals appearance against a defiantly brave Indiana Pacers. Facing off against a veteran-inclined, superbly-coached San Antonio Spurs, it’s destined to be a cerebral chess match of technical basketball brilliance in the NBA finals.
