in Tonight on the Tube

Steve Nash Phoenix Suns Replica Orange NBA JerseyWell the Miami Heat closed out the Detroit Pistons like I thought they would but you can’t really get a handle on the West. Tonight’s game is in Phoenix so they probably have the upper hand but I don’t think they will win the series even if they win tonight. Who do you think will face off against Miami in the NBA Finals?
