Default How do you rate the Thunder's chances of beating the Heat this year?

seeing as many have said they are the only team who can beat Miami in a series.

They'll probably do better than they did last year, but if Durant gets red hot in the playoffs and doesn't look back it's a different story

I think the Thunder have a great chance to beat them but I feel Westbrook may lose control of this emotions and let Durant down in the finals.

And Thunder are most definitely not going to beat the Heat if Westbrook willingly defers. They're doomed.

Better chance than last year. Talent wise, any team with Lebron is still my favorite to win the match but we're fooling ourselves if we think OKC didn't get stage fright with their first trip to the Finals.

If they can get over that, they might not lose in 5 this time around.

Good chance, if they somehow manage to survive the kobe-system that is. Since Harden left, there's no1 to choke the games for them. Westbrick will be more contained.

If Miami plays with the complacency of winning a title last year, they're in danger of losing to OKC who will enter the series with a chip on their collective shoulders.

The Thunder as currently constructed against a fully healthy Heat squad in a 7 game series, have less than 5% chance

30-40% chance. A great rebounding team with good low post scorers can beat the Heat. The Thunder don't have that.
