2013 NBA Finals
How do you follow up one of the greatest NBA Finals games in history? The Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs did just that Thursday night with the greatest spectacle in sports, a Game 7, winner-take-all game at the AmericanAirlines Arena.
Experience or youth? It’s often the difference between winning and losing in sports and Game 7 will feature plenty of both for the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat.
The Miami Heat put together one of the best regular seasons in recent memory thanks in large part to a 27-game winning streak. But it also secured home-court advantage throughout the playoffs and that could be a deciding factor on where the Larry O’Brien trophy stays for the next year.
Game 7 of the 2013 NBA Finals is less than 12 hours away and if you still don’t have a ticket, get ready to shell out quite a bit of cash if you want inside the AmericanAirlines Arena to see the game.
And then there was one. One game to decide the value of a year’s worth of work trying to become NBA champion. For one team, it’s one last shot at glory as the window is nearly closed on a historic run and for the other, immortality winning back-to-back championships.
Miami Heat superstar Dwyane Wade said Wednesday that his knee is swollen and sore, but to expect him back on the court when the team squares off against the San Antonio Spurs in the deciding Game 7 of the NBA Finals.
He’s often the most criticized member of the Big Three. But he’s described by head coach Erik Spoelstra as the team’s most important player. In Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals, Chris Bosh lived up to Coach Spoelstra’s definition at the most important time in the contest.
The Miami Heat forced Game 7 with the San Antonio Spurs thanks to a remarkable comeback for the ages in Game 6. It’s only after the stats were processed did the unlikely rally really get put in perspective.
Imagine being just seconds away from the pinnacle of your career only to watch it slip away for at least two more days. That’s what happened to the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night as the team was less than 30 seconds away from becoming the 2013 NBA Champions.
Much has been made of Miami Heat superstar LeBron James losing his headband during the Heat’s run in the fourth quarter. But another Heat player put on a nice show sans a piece of equipment in the quarter as well.
