It's a lot easier to predict a game when you can just put maybe at the end. I think the Heat will roll tonight in the NBA Finals Game 7. But the Spurs could win. So I am going with a solid maybe on this one. You can book that. As a solid maybe.
The Spurs are deflated after what happened in Game 6. They were really close to another ring, but a strong Lebron James, a good shot by Ray Allen, and some big plays by the DNA link between man and condor, Chris Bosh, and that was ring was gone. Maybe temporarily, but for the time being it was gone.
So how do the Spurs bounce back from that? Just keep doing what they do is one way, and hope that the Heat come out overconfident. They have done that a few times in the playoffs, and it could happen again. And an experienced, clinical team like the Spurs can take care of that.
But I think the Heat just landed the uppercut in game 6, and the Spurs have wobbly knees. If the Heat jump out early, and their fans stick around for awhile instead of trying to beat the traffic, the Heat could blow this one. You can book that. Maybe.
