Finals Are Officially Under Way

I believe it was Pat Riley who said a series doesn’t really start until the home team loses. Well, consider the NBA Finals officially under way, Patrick. Heat 100, Thunder 96. And make no mistake, that was a must-win game for Miami. Fall behind 2-0, in a 2-3-2 format to these guys, and they’re D.O.A. and they knew it, and that’s why they came out and attacked as if it were an elimination game. Because it was. The Heat may still not know how to finish, but they do know how to start. They dropped that 18-2 run on OKC to begin the game and the Thunder were never able to dig themselves out of that hole. And… they didn’t lose because of that non-call on LeBron late. They lost because they got kneecapped early and waited until the second quarter to get started.
