He picked up the ball, put one foot down, lifted that foot, put his pivot foot down, lifted that foot, took the Eurostep, took the South American step, stepped on a penguin and then got hacked. Clear cut foul situation.
Anyone think Ginobili's high elbow to LeBron will get upgraded to a flagrant 1 before game 7 tips off?
Unbelievable swings in the 4th quarter and even the last 2 minutes.
I like the Heat for game 7. Home team and the team that didn't already lose a close out game are big advantages.
The NBA's team most likely to shake of the game 6 loss with their veterans and Pop.
The officiating throughout the playoffs has been atrocious, particularly in the Finals. When you see the chrome dome on the court with the whistle, you know it is going to be a long night. It's tough when the guy with the whistle wants to be the star of the show.
Plenty of bad calls to go around, tonight. There is no excuse for the Spurs giving up 30 in the 4th. Part of that was the Heat turning up the defensive intensity at the other end of the court, but I wonder if they were gassed.
Thursday's game could go any which way. Home court, lost a close out game, etc...none of that will decide it, though it all matters. The tired legs might be a factor. At this point, it's the two best teams in the league, in terms of team play, talent, class, coaching, you name it. I'm just glad that the Heat didn't fold when that would have been the easy way out. There was a time when I expected that from LeBron, but he proved me wrong last year. I thought we would see it again. But they didn't quit, and we all get to see a monumental Game 7 as a result.
