Don't know if it's me, the TNT vs ESPN broadcast or the purely the fans, but OKC's fans are so much louder than anyone else. Miami's crowd is almost too quiet. Huge advantage when the crowd is really pumping up their team. If anyone of you play sports, you know the exhilaration of playing in front of a lively home crowd. Also, someone explain the 2-3-2 format in the finals. Why is this necessary for only the finals?

it's home ref advantage... they definitely pander to the crowd and the home team.

Depends, I guess the "energy" could affect them, but look at the Celtics/Heat game last night :D
