This was a probably one of the worst games of the series for the Miami Heat; LeBron James and Chris Bosh were virtually non-existent offensively through the first three quarters of basketball and at one point I thought the San Antonio Spurs would win this game. How did the Miami Heat manage to claw back into the game? With two desperation three-pointers from LeBron James and Ray Allen with less than 30 seconds left in the game the Heat forced overtime where they squeezed out a close but well-fought victory.
You have to give the Spurs credit, they dominated the Heat throughout most of the game and if Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard had not missed crucial free-throws late in the fourth, the Spurs would have won the 2013 NBA Championship. Tim Duncan played one of his best offensive games of the series, unfortunately Danny Green didn’t have the hot hand from the three-point line and Manu Ginobili fell off the radar once again.
The players of the game award belongs to LeBron James and Chris Bosh. James carried his team late in the fourth quarter and through overtime while Bosh is responsible for several crucial blocks and offensive rebounds that lead to point conversions for the Heat.
This series has now come down to a deciding Game 7 where the pressure will be on both teams to win. I predicted the Spurs in 7 but stay tuned for a full Game 7 prediction.
