I don't understand why Pop took Timmy out for both of those possessions, they really could have used the rebounding.

Ray ray comes through.

Spurs looked beat in OT their shots keep coming late in the clock. Why in the hell pop kept subbing in Diaw for Duncan is beyond me but glad he did it.

Putting Allen on the line... May as well just put points up on the score board.

His jump shot is prettier than any girl I will bang in my life. God damn saved me some $$$ today!

Baffling play by the Spurs in OT. They also should have fouled Bosh on the first miss/rebound when they were up by 3. Golden opportunity wasted there.

RE: The NBA Thread
What a fucking disgrace to see the refs giving the crucial calls to the Heat. It's clear, the league, those fuckers wanted to have a game 7.
How is that not a foul on Manu driving to the rim?
How is that not a foul on Green by Bosh on that last shot?
The Heats have been tremendous to come back, but some very crucial calls going their way, plus Pop making a crazy mistake by leaving Timmy out on the last 20 seconds of regulation. With Timmy on the floor, the Spurs would have been now celebrating another championship.

I'm still puzzled by these 2 crucial calls in the last 2 plays of the game. What a disgrace to see a game falsified by the fucking refs!!!!Angry

As far as I'm concerned, the Spurs blew it. Hope they won't regret in game 7...

^^ don't get me wrong I am betting money on the heat but I also don't hate the spurs. That was a decently refereed game, I would blame the turnovers on Manu, poor subs late in game, and Danny green missing everything tonight.

That would have never happened if the spurs boxed out. Lebron hit a three off an offensive rebound... Then 20 seconds later ray hits another three off... An offensive rebound.

Giving Ray, lebron, or wade 4 shots from three within 30 seconds you'll get burned

Box out for gods sake!

Danny Green is clearly not MVP material yet. In the big game, in the big moment when your team needs you the most, he disappeared. Game 7 will be an ultimate ALPHA match: Timmy-TP VS Lebron. The winner will be MVP.

damn, those heat had me chewing on my nails. Lebron was turning over the rock at key moments and Wade's jump shot needs work.

Ray Allen was huge and way to go Mr Former Raptor for coming up big on the D tonight with the offensive board and the block on Monsieur Oui Oui and Green for the W!

I agree with Vacancier that the league wants a game 7. It's good for revenue. I was discussing it with this cat in Winn Dixie the other day.

Can't wait for game 7 this was a surprisingly intense series.

Agree Timmy versus lebron. No one can say lebron isn't clutch the guy was 7/11 in the fourth and threw up a triple double after being non-existent offensively. Yeah turned the rock but he put up over half their q4 pts.

Tony Parker had a very mixed game, dead offensively then on the ball hard defensively but just wasn't enough.

If you watch the replay, literally no one boxes out the bigs from Miami, not a single body on them. Timmy should have the right to be in there at all times.

Not only is it surprisingly intense, I feel like its historic relevance (or pop-historic relevance) has been somehow understated by the mainstream media.

If the Heat lose, Lebron resumes his trajectory as one of the NBA's greater underachievers--with no relief in sight, given the Heat are only getting older (as is Lebron himself).

If the Spurs lose, the Duncan-era Spurs will be relegated to merely very-good status as a franchise, whereas a win would likely solidify them as one of history's greats alongside Jordan-era Bulls and Bird-era Celtics. There will also be a huge element of "what could have been," given that the Spurs would have been stopped deep in the playoffs twice by Deux Ex Machinas--Fisher's 0.4 shot, and now the Heat's Game 6.

The prayer of Lebron James after he wins Game 7.

Our King which art in Miami,

Hallowed be thy headband.

Thy kingdom come.

Thy rings will be won on earth,

as it is in Game 7.

Give us this day our daily win.

And forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those

who trespass against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the King,

and the Wade, and the Bosh,

forever and ever.

Amen.

Are you kidding me are you European or something?

This is the NBA FINALS in the last 2 mins of a game. On both instance Bosh and Ray Allen got 90%+ ball. You can't make bad decisions in the finals in the last minutes and expect to win on fouls.

This isn't soccer.

Manu's drive through 3 people is a bad decision, Green trying to shoot with a 6'10" guy clearly closed you out and you are forced to shoot you're fucked it's a play that didn't turn out well to begin with.

Bailing players out is for pussies.

Travesty,
Dude, even the tv commentators said those 2 calls were fouls. Rewatch the replay and you will see it. Clear as day that those were fouls not given as the league wanted a game 7. Miami winning is sexy and marketable while Spurs winning is not. This is what it all boils down to. And that's sad to have the outcome of the finals already decided by the powers to be.

P.S. It's not soccer. It's FOOTBALL, the world's game, the Beautiful Game. Calling it soccer is a travesty.Wink

Disgraceful refereeing in the last quarter.

Spurs were robbed.

No surprise to see Joey Crawford refereeing this game.

This is the same ref who ejected TD for laughing while sitting on the bench back in 2007.

Disgrace.

Come on Vacancier. Can't put this on the refs. If you are really objective, almost all the 50-50 calls were going the Spurs way in this game.

Had Manu and Kwahi hit their FTs the Spurs would have won comfortably. If you think Ginobili barreling into three people at the end was a foul then LeBron has been doing the same the entire series and has not been awarded with any calls. Bosh's block on Green was pretty clean. I don't see how the league fixed this. Sure they wanted a game 7 but they didn't make LeBron go nuts in the 4th and or make the Spurs miss their shots in the 4th, or make Pop do some questionable rotations in the 4th and OT.

RE: The NBA Thread
This is an all-time classic. The trophy being prepared and the perimeter for the presentation being set-up and Miami comes back. The refereeing has been pretty fair this series and people are forgetting that only Danny Green was in foul trouble. For Miami, Wade, Anderson, and Allen were all in foul trouble.

I was talking with my friend yesterday and we said the best case scenario for Miami would be to win a close one as this would force Pop to play his starters and empty their tanks for Game 7. Timmy, Parker, and Ginobili played a ton of minutes. I am not sure if Duncan is going to be this dominant again in Game 7. I think the Heat are favourites now in Game 7.

LeBron is the best player on the court and being 28 is an advantage. Wade better stay out of the way if he is not ready to go.

Funny thing is when Miami was down 5 with 28 seconds to go before LeBron hit the 3, I was on the phone with my friend and we were saying how LeBron's legacy was going to take a hit and the epic comeback had fallen short. LeBron not only saved his season but he saved his legacy again by playing this well in the 4th and OT after playing garbage in the first 3 quarters. As the best player in the league he has to stop putting his legacy on the line. On the other hand if he wins this series I think the legacy questions will truly subside and he can just play without being questioned after every bad game.

RE: The NBA Thread
The Slayer,
Agreed that it's more 90% the Spurs that blew it and 10% those questionable calls that the refs didn't give. Even the TV commentators said those were fouls. If you touch a guy making a 3 pointer shot, then that's a foul. Bosh didn't touch DG, he body checked him NHL style. If that's not a foul, then I don't know what is.

But you're right, that a series of bad decisions and bad misses in key moments by the Spurs caused their downfall in that game.

Leonard, missing that crucial free throw at the very end.
When Bosh went for that rebound at the very end before passing to Allen, the Spurs should have fouled Bosh. With 3 points up, they could have afford to have the Heat 2 free throws and they would have still been up by 1, provided that Bosh had made both of them.
And the biggest mistake of all, incredibly by the most tactically astute and experienced coach in the league, Pop, to leave his leader, TD out in the most crucial moments of the game, when they needed his physical presence in the paint to get those vital rebounds. With him on the field, he would have got at least 1 of those crucial rebounds and the Spurs would have been popping champagne right now.

I just hope that this loss won't be too hard for them mentally and that they will be back to their very best on Thursday night. This time, to play like tonight but without those crucial mistakes by Pop at the end.

It hurts like a bitch to losing a game like that! It would be such a shame should the Spurs lose this.

Come on Spurs!!!One more top notch game with 200% focus till the very end!!!Allez Tony!!!

RE: The NBA Thread
By the way, the Spurs got away with a technical foul after Allen hit his 3. When they were reviewing his 3 for 2 or 3, Duncan was not in the game and he came in illegally into the game to inbound the ball. It should have been a technical foul apparently. I am also learning that if Allen had hit a two and Heat lost the game, they could have "protested" the substitution and the NBA would have 5 days to decide whether to replay the game or simply give the Heat a "Sorry, we messed up".

I don't really care because the Heat won but just sharing it with you guys because I found it interesting.
