Heat Beat Spurs 103-100, Extends to Game 7
It was a lucky day for Miami as they abruptly snatched the title from Spurs, beating them 103-100 and extending the Finals to Game 7.
LeBron proved just in time to save the game but the question now is whether he can outperform himself on Game 7.
It will be a do or go home scenario for Spurs and Heat on Game 7 and Miami is still not yet ready to lose their title—they’re ready to give their best.
James pushed the scrambling Heat in a fourth-quarter rally extending the game for overtime and beating Spurs 103-100. He finished with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.
Officials were ready to bring out the trophy for Spurs but a quick run of 3-pointers and defensive plays just barely made it in time to cut the celebration short.
Duncan scored 30 points for his team. It was his highest since Game 1 in 2003. He further earned 17 rebounds
Thursday will see Game 7 and both teams are gearing up for the final match of the series.
Spurs seemed to be headed for a win as they darted past Heat with a 13-point lead with less than four minutes left in the third. They followed it with a five-point advantage with mere 28 seconds left.
James, however, was not ready to give up as he hit a 3-pointer followed by Ray Allen with another 3-pointer.
Heat, which hasn’t lost consecutive games since January 8 and 10, played on their defense in the final 17 minutes of the game.
Although James’ performance was short of his 45-point wonder in Game 6 of the Eastern Conference finals last year, he certainly carried his team to edge them nearer to grabbing that trophy.
During the overtime, Spurs grabbed the lead again with three points but James put a stop on it as he cut Allen for a basket. They finally topped Spurs when Bosh successfully blocked two of Spurs’ final two attempts at the basket.
Bosh finished with 11 rebounds and 10 points while Mario Chalmers ended with 20 points and Wade with 14.
