If anyone had told me a few weeks ago that one of the conference finals' series would tied 1-1 and one team up 3-0 in the other, I would not have picked the west to have the team that is 3-0. The east finals was supposed to be a cakewalk for the Heat and the west, a dogfight. What a surprise.
I'm not sure of what the east finals is saying about the Heat or the Pacers. Heat could be suffering from a case of repeat-itis or the Pacers just might be a team that is jelling at just the right time.
In any case, congrats to the Spurs for getting back to the Finals where they have never lost. Spurs - Heat would be good for the league -- Spurs - Pacers, not so much. I still expect the Heat to repeat, just not as positive as I once was.
