How much energy did the HEAT need to expend to get back into game 6 vs. how devastating was the loss in game 6 for the SPURS...
Obviously, for most teams, a home crowd really helps, but the HEAT home fans seem pretty terrible and the SPURS are veterans.
I heard reports that Parker was completely exhausted in OT. He had nothing left.
I heard the same for Lebron in the post-game press conf. He got in the chair and was so exhausted that he needed help to get off it. It was almost 1:30am too.
These guys have emptied the tank. Miami is playin' back to back 7 game series. IMO, game 7 is completely up in the air and whoever has more energy will pull out the win in the 4th.
Yes, fans in Miami are terrible...but make no mistake about it --- they're plenty loud when they're in it. They will provide energy to the players...but will that be enough?
