Game 1 Tues., June 12 at Oklahoma City 9 p.m. ABC
Game 2 Thurs., June 14 at Oklahoma City 9 p.m. ABC
Game 3 Sun., June 17 at Miami 8 p.m. ABC

Game 6* Sun., June 24 at Oklahoma City 8 p.m. ABC
Game 7* Tues., June 26 at Oklahoma City 9 p.m. ABC

I've gone on record saying the Heat will win the series in 6, but I really have no clue. I could see almost any scenario, short of Derek Fisher winning the Finals MVP. Who do you think will win the series?
