The Finals are underway, and the Heat look strong. After playing terribly on the offensive end and only shooting 38% they still managed to defeat Dallas by 8. Dallas played poorly, too, so there is still hope for the Mavericks faithful (and all those rooting against Lebron), but my prediction of Heat in 5 is not looking terrible. Game 2 Thursday night will give us more to work with as far as the Dallas desperation level. If Dirk and Co. can get Game 2, the fear will migrate to South Beach.
