Can The Spurs Beat the Heat?

Okay, once again the Heat are the overwhelming favorite to win the NBA Championship. This sucks. I’m making myself sick right now just thinking of LeBron lifting the Larry O’Brien Trophy and handing it off to Ray Allen and Battier and the Birdman and all the rest of those despicable Miamians. Now that the Heat and Spurs have qualified for the NBA Finals, let’s take a look at the Spurs’ chances.

San Antonio Spurs

Everyone knows that the Spurs are old and slow, which are not good adjectives when you’re trying to match up with the Heat, but what Gregg Poppovich and his crew can do is force their opponent to play their game. The Spurs like to play big and they like to play inside out, either running the ball through Tim Duncan in the post or on drive and kicks to their superb role players, so they may be able to exploit the Heat’s lack of size and take advantage of the collapsing Heat defense.

They are responsible with the ball which should limit Miami’s fast break points and they play stout, positionally sound defense, hopefully minimizing driving lanes for the Heat.

One more thing, the Spurs won their titles in 1999, 2003, 2005, and 2007, which are all odd numbered years.

It’s 2013. Anything can happen.
