Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Oklahoma,with the Heat and the Thunder, is set to Tip-Off at 8 PM Eastern time. Kevin Durant Dominated in game one and just took over. Can LeBron dominate today and get the win on the road? There are many factors that will contribute to tonight's game in order for the Heat not to go down 2-0 in the series. Dwayne Wade needs to have a better game than in game 1 and he must score at least 22 in order for the Heat to win. Now Chris Bosh, who should start today, needs to find more open shots and get to the rim for higher percentage shots. He also has to create space and draw the defense towards him in order for James and Wade to do what they are supposed to do. Also Shane Battier needs to have another
great game like game 1. He needs to be able to shoot the three when he has the chance and draw the defense towards him so the floor can spread. Not only him but yet another role player in Udonis Haslem needs be great, he needs to be physical on the boards and get to the rim. Also Mario Chalmers needs to have less than 2 turnovers in order for the Heat to win, he also needs to find his teammates and not be afraid to shoot the three when it's open.
For the Thunder Kevin Durant needs to be explosive and dominate the floor like he did in game 1, he needs to get open shots and move more without the ball. He also needs to be ready to find his teammates because one of the best defenders in LeBron James will most likely be guarding him. Also Russell Westbrook needs to be explosive and score right out of the gate, he needs to find open teammates and not shoot too much. James Harden needs to be that force to put OKC on top, he needs to be explosive, be able to hit key shots and to get the crowd going.
This game tonight will be a hard fought battle and look for the Miami Heat to step it up, because they know, what they need to do in order to win.I see Miami taking this one on the road with a score of 98 to 94 with LeBron having at least 30 points, and Bosh with at least 17.
