The Miami Heat took Game 7 at home last week and their second championship in a row. They went back and forth with the San Antonio Spurs for most of the game but pulled away in the last few minutes, winning 95-88. It was all done without a single point from Chris Bosh.

It feels like eons since the San Antonio Spurs last played a game.
At last, on Thursday evening, they’ll get to suit up against the Miami Heat for Game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals.

The NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder went only five games, and television ratings did not stand out as much as one would expect with the star power involved. There were not two games that topped the 20-million-average-viewer mark as I had predicted. There was not even one. It was interesting to see how the momentum on the Thunder who had won four in a row against the San Antonio Spurs in the Western Conference Finals and then the first game of the NBA Finals. Miami then won four in a row, including three at home, to take this year’s championship. The Thunder looked completely overmatched by Game 5, which the Heat turned into a blowout.
