The Flame and the Kitten

The Miami Heat are a fire that can't be put out and the Lakers are a hopeless kitten stuck in a tree, but the Lakers tree is a slump. An endless slump lead by the fact that the Lakers have no chemistry. On the Heat they have exactly that, chemistry. For example, the Miami Heat's big three, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh were all drafted in the same year of 2003. Even though Bosh and Ray Allen will be out for this game I am still predicting the Heat to win, because they did it over the Clippers.

The biggest reason I think the Heat can win is, because the Lakers are sloppy with the ball this year and Dwayne Wade is one of the best defensive players in the league. I think that Wade will be all over the Laker's offense. Also, LeBron James has a career high of 56.0 percent from the field and he also has a career high of 42.0 percent from beyond the arc. But maybe Kobe Bryant can lead his team to victory, with his average of 27.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 5.3 assists. He would still need help from the Lakers great assister Steve Nash, who averages over 7 assists a game. The Lakers great rebounding core Pau Gasol and Dwight Howard can get the 19 total rebounds they average a game.

So yes there is a possibility that the Lakers can string together a win over the Heat, but I am still taking the unhealthy Heat. What do you think? Post your predicted winner in the comments.
