Bulls and Thunder Going to Make Comeback?

The Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder are now down 3-1 in there respective series.  According to USA Today, “of the 189 NBA teams that were down 3-1 in a best-of-seven playoff series, eight advanced.”  It doesn’t look good for either team down 3-1.

The Thunder and Bulls seemed to be in control in game four of their series, however, both the Mavericks and Heat were able to win.  If the Thunder and Bulls had won their fourth game, each series would have been tied 2-2, leaving much better odds of advancing.

In the Heat-Bulls series, it seems as though the three-pronged attack of the Heat team is proving to be too much.  LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh came together because they thought this would be the best chance to win an NBA championship, and it seems like this is working.  I think that these three big-time stars are enough to cause the Bulls trouble, and even the team they may play in the finals.

In the Mavericks-Thunder series, Dirk Nowitzki is on fire, and the Thunder don’t seem to have a way of stopping him.  His size and ability to make shots is causing a lot of problems for the Thunder and unless they are able to stop him, they will not advance.

I think the Heat and Mavericks will advance to the NBA Finals easily.  The Heat I believe will win the finals though because they have too much talent not to win.
