How about Nick Collison for the Thunder?
Ten rebounds and eight points...he had two huge offensive rebounds and two nice dunks...nice to see supporting cast help out...I like him better than Perkins...Collison is smaller...but has quicker feet and is a solid defender.
I might actually like the Heat if a few things transpire, but one of the things that NEEDS to happen is trading Wade for a true point guard. James and Wade are too similar in playing style and they rarely get in synch. Imagine having a playmaker like Rondo or Nash in this lineup. Then get a few big bodies that don't look and play like a velociraptor and you've got a championship team. I remain skeptical that James and Wade can win rings together, though it can still happen this year.
The big difference I can see so far is OKC plays for eachother and the Heat play to shut up the critics.
Is it still insecurity if I fear my job is going to let me go because they don't realize how awesome I am?
I am spoiled since I got to see Jordan and Pippen play together for so many seasons. I just don't see anything remotely close to that dynamic with James and Wade. Maybe they both just have too much of a scorers mentality to properly compliment each others game?
Game 2 is going to be huge.

Miami pulls it out.
Well this is the way it had to be for the Heat, if they didn't split, they were done. Now they have to get 2 or 3 at home. Big props to Shane Battier!!
One more Miami!!
