Vegas Odds On NBA Finals 2015
The early Las Vegas odds on NBA finals 2015 show the Heat, Spurs, Trailblazers, Pacers and Thunder all as legitimate contenders to the Miami Heat championship throne of 2013. The National Basketball Association Western Conference is definitely looking like the class of the NBA this year, and an argument can be made for a full 6 teams from the West as legitimate NBA finals contenders for 2014. The Eastern Conference is also powerful, but not as deep as the West this year. The NBA finals will begin on Saturday, June 20, and will see the Miami Heat Big 3 trying to make it three NBA championships in a row. At roughly midway through the 2014 season, the seemingly ageless San Antonio Spurs own the NBA's best record, with Portland, Oklahoma City, Indiana and Miami right behind them. The March for the NBA finals begins April 19 as the league's 16 best teams kick-off the 2014 NBA playoffs.
About The NBA Finals
Elgin Baylor sinking 61 points in 1962 in a Game 5 win over the Boston Celtics in the Lakers' first NBA Finals appearance, a NBA Finals record which still stands. Michael Jordan hitting 6 three-pointers and 35 points in the first half of game 1 against Portland in 1992. Julius "Dr. J" Erving leaping from the right side of the key, palming the ball in one hand out beyond the end line, and scooping it under, up and off the other side of the glass for two, while hanging in the air for about five minutes against the Lakers in Game 4 of the 1980 NBA Finals. The Lakers Earvin "Magic" Johnson said that was the "greatest move I've ever seen in a basketball game", and it is typical of the exciting athleticism we have come to expect in the NBA Playoffs final chapter.
While individual NBA games and even NBA playoffs deliver some memorable experiences every year, there is nothing like the NBA basketball championship match-up to produce legendary efforts. And Las Vegas odds on NBA finals every year position the savvy gambler with the potential for near-guaranteed locks, as well as big underdog paydays. Often times the key players in this culmination of NBA basketball competition previously showcased their talent in NCAAB games and March Madness play as well. The Vegas odds on basketball competition at every level are posted right here, and updated frequently.
Since the National Basketball Association is the highest level of round-ball competition anywhere in the world, each year the NBA Finals has a chance to produce an incredible contest like Celtics–Lakers in 1969, which saw Jerry West average nearly 38 points a game for the victorious Lakers. Or how about Jordan in '98 in Game 4 against the Jazz, with what may be the most iconic and memorable moment in recent finals history. Jordan stealing the ball from Malone, facing up against Byron Russell. The dribble right, the push-off with the left hand, the stroke for the come-from-behind win and then that unforgettable pose.
Every basketball fan that remembers Marv Albert's cry in 1970 of, "And here comes Willis!" knows the power that the NBA Finals can deliver. Emerging from the tunnel and onto the court with what was pretty much a broken leg, his presence alone gave the Knicks a 4-3 victory over the Lakers, and it is this same intensity which accompanies the NBA Finals match-up every year.
