MIAMI — Heat in six. Spurs in six. Heat in six.
Our predictions for The Finals are all over the place, as you might expect with a clash of heavyweights that looks like a pretty fair fight on paper.
In one corner we have LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and a Miami Heat team that is making its third straight appearance in The Finals, trying to defend its title with one of the brightest young coaching minds in the game in Erik Spoelstra.
In the other corner we have Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and a San Antonio Spurs crew that is making its fifth appearance in The Finals in 15 years, trying to add to their dynasty with a coaching master working the sidelines in Gregg Popovich.
NBA.com’s analytics guru John Schuhmann joins us live from Miami on the show this week, replacing a missing-in-action Rick Fox, and offering up his unique insight into the series.
