Judging by their performance on Tuesday, it would seem as though the Oklahoma City Thunder have grown up a bit. No more mental games with these guys. They were down pretty big but they pulled out a win. And not just by the skin of their teeth- a convincing win, against one of the league's best defeses.

The Heat have made it to the finals back to back for a reason- they're pretty good. We're getting everything we could hope for in a finals not featuring the Mavericks: a little bit of drama, shining stars, and really exciting basketball. There are few basketball minds out there who can definitively say how this series will end, and that's how it should be.

Hell, Shane Battier was the hero for the Heat last game.

Shane Battier.

So watch, and enjoy (as much as one can without having a team to cheer for).
