2013 NBA Finals thread: San Antonio Spurs vs. Miami Heat

Pop lost this game for them. No clue what he was doing. Taking out Parker and Duncan was the difference. If Duncan was in for one of those rebounds, end game. And not having your best player out for the final whatever seconds and allowing Ginobli to drive into 5 defenders had me completely baffled. Think he out coached himself on this one.

I agree. What was Duncan doing out of the game. Allen would not have made that shot had Duncan was in for that rebound. End of game Spurs win. This series has been back and forth and if it keeps going that way, means Spurs win the next one. I'm hoping Spurs take it. For a guy that has no drama, for a team that has no ego's, for a team that didn't need to bring in 2-3 superstars to win a Championship.....I hope Duncan wins another before he leaves the game. I love Wade and his game, but I just can't stand Lebron and Bosh.

Isn't that classic Pop?
Isn't that what he is known for? For unconventional patterns in regards to substitution?

I know during the regular season he will have 10 guys touch the court by the 10min into the 1st quarter.... And will tighten up the minutes in the playoffs.

But heat will likely win now. The winner will have earned it. Everyone cheered lebron when he gave up his summer to carry our team to US gold despite the fact he had come off back to back finals runs. He had no break and now in his 3rd consecutive finals he is on the verge of repeating. Heat organization had only one star when shaq left for a couple seasons and one of the lowest payrolls in the NBA. Dudes took a paycut to do something special. One team is built through draft and one by free agency but both has a big three one just had theirs longer. And lebron had a troubled upbringing yet he turned out to be unselfish and wants to please others. He could be lot worse for a father less kid from the hood. He deserves what he gets on the court because no one will give it to him
Ray Allen doesn't have a chance to tie the game if LeBron didn't go beast mode early in the 4th. Yeah he had some bad turnovers at the end but they wouldn't have even had a chance to win if he didn't do what he did.

He looked possessed out there. He did almost give the game away a couple of times, but they still pulled it off, largely because of him. Easily the most heart breaking loss I've experienced in sports. This is worse than .4 seconds as a Spurs fan, and, as a sports fan, worse than the Super Bowl (emotionally, at least).

Heat defense down the stretch erased the big three for the most part and they are doing to manu what was done to Hardin last year. Lockdown defense
Looking back either team could have won. I read that Parker had cramps during the last minutes of the game. Game 7? I have no idea. Leonard, even though he missed the free throw, might be ready for a signature game.

Series is far from over. Green, Parker, Ginobli all played like basura. Should be epic.

Seriously thought that game was over with 19 seconds in the 4th. Shoot people were tweeting about Cleveland celebrating

a large chunk of miami fans were walking out, then tried to force their way back in. Horrible.
Teams with a 5 point lead with 28 seconds left win 98.6% of the time. OUCH. Man that's got to hurt the Spurs. Plus a lot of their older guys went all in and played big minutes. I don't see how they recover from this physically and mentally both. The only annoying thing that gives them a chance is this W, L, W, L patter that seems to be on going. I would have to guess a slight edge for Miami in game 7. But not being able to win 2 games in a row does scare me in some ways. Still I think San Antonio will be so demoralized and tired it will be tough for them to win.

Usually a team that loses a game they obviously had won for a close out doesn't win the series. Not always. But it's the kind of crusher game you usually don't come back from IMO.

I cant believe Jeff van douchebag complaining about the heat not getting called for fouls down the stretch when the refs were riding the spurs' sacs all game.

There were tons of big fouls on Lebron where he should have been at the line. They just didn't call fouls either way deep in the 4th and OT. So it was even on both sides.
What a great game! Game 7
