The San Antonio Spurs will face off against the Miami Heat tonight in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. This will be the first time the Spurs make the Finals without homecourt advantage against the best team in the East, the Miami Heat.
The Spurs will have their work cut out for them in the final series to determine the NBA champion and there will be three factors that will determine if the Spurs can overcome the Heat this series.
1) Tony Parker playing like an MVP
Parker has been the best player with the silver and black this season and has carried the offense on his shoulders when he's been on the floor. His improved passing and aggressiveness is what has made the Spurs dangerous this postseason and has countered the opposing team's top offensive player. This series Parker might meet a new defender worthy of shutting him down: LeBron James. Parker will have to earn his points this series, especially if #6 is going to be guarding him.no comments
