At one apiece in the NBA Championship, US Sports Informer Ed Wyatt can see Miami rolling on from their Game Two success to take out a win in their third game against Oklahoma.
Well, I was wrong.
I urged caution in backing the Heat in Game Two and, as it turned out, Miami went into Oklahoma City and beat the Thunder 100-96.
Still, it wasn't easy.
The Heat almost blew another huge lead and OKC's Kevin Durant had a great chance to tie the game late, but couldn't convert.
Durant and LeBron James were both huge again, scoring 32 points each. Dwayne Wade had a better night with 24 and the Heat got an unexpected 17 from Shane Battier, who hit five three-pointers. Russell Westbrook scored 27 for the Thunder, but copped severe media criticism for his decision-making and shot selection.
In other words, it's all happening as we move to South Florida with the series tied at 1-1. For some bizarre reason the NBA persists in playing 2-3-2 series in the Finals when it's been 2-2-1-1-1 all throughout the playoffs.
That means Miami can now win the series at home with three straight victories. That will be pretty tough to do and I wouldn't count on it, but at least the opportunity is there.
If you are interested in some action, however, perhaps consider the Series Correct Score market. All you need is for the Thunder to win one of the next three games for the series to return to Oklahoma City.
