NBA Finals Game Five Prediction and Preview

Michael Garcia - June 22, 2012

What else is left to say? OKC has to win or it's over. They need all their guys to play their best games of the series. I don't think Russell Westbrook needs to shoot 32 times, because it's unlikely he's going to hit 20 of them again. James Harden has to show up. Kevin Durant has to do more than score. They need a fourth guy to hit some shots and help out.

Miami doesn't want to give the Thunder any hope in the least, and they obviously want to close it out tonight. Because partying in Miami > partying in Oklahoma.

LeBron James is on a mission and he gets a chance to show that he can be clutch when it matters most; a closeout game in the NBA Finals. Dwyane Wade will be pumped up. If Miami gets someone outside of the big three to step up like Mario Chalmers did last game, this could be over tonight. 

OKC will come out fast again, but not get up by 17 fast. It's going to a tight game, maybe not all the way through, but at the end it will be. Until OKC has to foul because...Miami is going to win tonight.

Heat by 8.
