The 2014 NBA Finals is the championship series of the 2013–14 season of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the conclusion of the season’s playoffs. This series will feature the Eastern Conferencechampion Miami Heat versus the Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs. This will be a rematch of the previous year’s finals, where Miami won in seven games, and thus, handing the Spurs their only Finals defeat. It is the first NBA Finals rematch since 1998, when the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz met in the Finals for consecutive times, with the Bulls winning the title in both occasions.
