Game one tips off at 8PM Eastern Time as the Oklahoma City Thunder plays Orlando. The Oklahoma City Thunder are the favorites to represent the West in the NBA Finals this season behind their 27-7 overall record and 12-6 road mark heading into play on Tuesday. Kevin Durant leads the team with nearly 18 points a game and a very good 51.3% shooting from the floor. Orlando looks to revenge a 97-89 road defeat to OKC in game one of the season on Christmas Day as a +7 ½ point underdog. The Magic fell behind by 18 after three quarters and nearly got in the back door to cover the pointspread. The Magic has been an inconsistent team this season as they enter play following the break at 22-13 heading into Tuesday.

In the late night doubleheader game Miami plays their first game since the All Star break as they play a struggling Portland Trailblazers team. The Heat has the look of an NBA champion with the demise of the LA Lakers, Boston Celtics and Dallas Mavericks. They are the number one team in the NBA in scoring, shooting percentage and three point shooting on the campaign. They allow 42.3% shooting from the field ranking 5th in the NBA. Miami has greatly improved their bench with Shane Battier, Mike Miller and Udonis Haslem contributing greatly to the team. You can pretty much pencil in Lebron James as the NBA MVP this season. James is averaging 27 points nearly 7 assists and a very sick 54.7% shooting percentage for the year. Portland enters play heading into Wednesday’s action with a disappointing 18-16 record this year. They play the back end of a back to back in this spot having played at Denver on Wednesday night. Portland is getting inefficient play from guards Raymond Felton, Jamal Crawford and Wesley Matthews who are the sources of the team’s problems.
