What’s Hot on TV Tonight – NBA Finals, Heat vs. Thunder

I’ll admit it. I’m still a little sore that the Bulls didn’t make it any further in the playoffs. Who would have seen that coming, for them to be eliminated that early? I have to hand it to the 76ers, though. They nearly beat the Celtics, too. They just have pluck, despite being lowest seed in the playoffs. Regardless, none of those teams are in the finals. It’s Heat vs. Thunder, with Miami winning the regular season game. Will they take the series and the title? Catch up with all the TV you may have missed at TV-Links.
