5 Changes the Miami Heat Need to Make to Take Down the Oklahoma City Thunder

The Miami Heat could be on course to make it to the NBA Finals for the second year running.

There is, of course, the small matter of a probable Eastern Conference Finals match-up with the Chicago Bulls, but with the Heat considered favorites to overcome Derrick Rose and the Bench Mob, the Heat have to also think about how they can beat the team that eventually comes out of the Western Conference.

The West this year has been chaotic. The fourth- and eighth-seeded teams are just four games apart.

However, at the top, there is a little more clarity. The Oklahoma City Thunder hold a 2.5-game lead over the San Antonio Spurs and look by far the best bet to make it to their first NBA Finals.

Their overwhelmingly athletic and fast approach to the game gives them the perfect combination of speed in attack and half-court offense.

Miami as comprised can beat the Thunder once or twice in a series, but right now, the Thunder are playing better than every team in the NBA. Beating them four times out of seven looks like a mighty proposition.

The Heat, however, are just a few changes away from finally being able to silence the critics and capture that all-important NBA Championship.
