Live Betting Preview: Spurs-Heat Game OnePublished June 6, 2013 by OCR Editor
Heat-Spurs tip off game one of NBA Finals at 2am UK time tonight.
Just minutes after the San Antonio Spurs vanquished the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2007 NBA Finals, Tim Duncan told LeBron James that the world's best basketball league would one day be his. Tonight, LeBron, now with Miami, gets to show Duncan just how prophetic his words were.
Game One of the NBA Finals tips off tonight in what truly is a battle of old versus new. The Spurs' star players Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili become the first trio outside of the Boston Celtics to play in four NBA finals series together. Heat star trio James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh and their teammates are aiming for a second straight NBA title.
Although Miami had the league's best regular season record, it is the Spurs who are most refreshed. San Antonio completed their Western Conference Finals series sweep of Memphis nine days ago, while the Heat were forced into a seventh game by the defensively minded Indiana Pacers.
