Default Who's more clutch, Heat or Lakers

What team is more clutch? If both teams make the Finals chances is every game will be close in the 4th. SO 5 minutes on the clock, tied score, what team is more clutch to come out on top?

If you've been following pre-season at all the Clippers are more clutch than either.

The Lakers inability to make clutch plays in crunch time is the only reason OKC represented the West in the Finals last year. The Lakers handed them two games on a silver platter where they had a solid lead late in the 4th.

Last year was an off year for Kobe and the team in the clutch. i believe the Lakers will bounce back this year strongly.

Between Kobe and Nash, I give the edge to the Lakers.

Even as a Laker fan I think this one of the areas where Miami has a clear advantage going into the season over LA. We have Nash and Kobe and even last year was a down year for Kobe due to the fact that he had no legs left at the end of games because he was the sole offensive creator for the team. Miami has a lot of proven shooters too unlike LA but we'll see what kind of effect Nash and Dwight will have on our shooters. Its not really a surprise that Orlando and Phoenix were two of the better 3pt shooting teams when Dwight and Nash were there. So going into the season I'll give the advantage to Miami but we really don't know much about the Lakers right now but they will have an inside out game and a PG who will get get wide open shots in rhythm.

Dwade,Lebron, Bosh, Ray Allen, Chalmers, and Lewis have all been clutch in the playoffs. Kobe and Nash are both clutch, MWP has clutch moments as well. But I'll give the edge to the Heat.

I'll give the edge to the Heat, ONLY because of experience playing together and being tested. People forget that the 2012 Finals game had several games that were decided in the last few minutes and few possessions, but they made the right play and shots at the right time. They've been there before.

However, I'll never count out a team that has Kobe Bryant on it. Especially not at the end of games. And i'm not taking buzzer beaters, i'm talking clutch baskets. if lakers need a clutch basket, steal or defense for a few possessions near the end, that's where kobe thrives. especially under pressure. last year was a down, off year for him, due to the lack of offensive structure. I expect him to return to his usual this year though.

Man it would be pretty even then. I'd still give edge to the Heat.
