The Miami Heat will play the Oklahoma City Thunder in the finals this year. The NBA Championship odds say that’s a good possibility of happening.
The NBA all-star game is about three weeks away on Sunday, February 26, 2012 at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. In most NBA seasons it’s usually the all-star break that signals the good teams that it’s time to get going and you’ll often see the contenders separate themselves from the pretenders.
In the Eastern Conference it’s hard to imagine anyone other than the Miami Heat or Chicago Bulls representing the East in the NBA finals. The next level of teams seem to be the Atlanta Hawks who have beat the Bulls and Heat this year, the 76ers who also beat the Bulls and have a date with Miami tomorrow and the one surprise team is the Indiana Pacers.
Odds to win the Eastern Conference.
|Eastern Conference – 2/2/2012 7:35 PM (EST)|
|New York Knicks||+1900|
|New Jersey Nets||+11000|
The Western Conference could be a little more wide open as it has been in recent years. Oklahoma City looks like the top team in the West and the duo of Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook is only going to get better. Other possible championship contenders are the Dallas Mavericks (defending champs), Denver Nuggets, LA Clippers and LA Lakers.
