NBA Finals Favorites Square Off In Lakers vs. Heat

March 9th, 2011

At the beginning of the 2010-11 NBA season, there were two teams in the league who stood out as potential NBA champions – the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers and the star-stacked Miami Heat. 

Although the actual field of contenders was far deeper than a simple pair, the minds of the public were made up that the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat were at the top of the pile.

In mid-March, however, that same public is not so sure.

This Thursday the Miami Heat will host the Los Angeles Lakers less than three months after handing them a Christmas Day beating, but a second victory might not be as attainable as the first.

The Heat have struggled of late, dropping recent contests to a number of worthwhile opponents. Miami have lost four straight games heading into the week, and will be charged with the task of slowing down a Lakers squad that’s won seven consecutive of their own.

Will the Heat be able to bounce back in time for the big reunion? And at what point will the Heat (with 3/1 odds of winning the NBA championship, tied with LA for the league’s best) fall out of the top spot altogether?
