"Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu rides off into the NBA retirement sunset as NBA Champions!"

"Kawhi Leonard seals the deal as Spurs win the NBA Finals!"

"Danny Green the most unlikely MVP of the Spurs Championship run!"

That's what the headlines should have read!

Instead:

"King James turns the ball over twice in the final minutes of the game and Miami still holds on!"

"Dwayne Wade playing injured and Spurs could not take advantage!"

"Chris Bosh, steals Finals MVP honors from King James in OT of game 6!"

"Ref's ensure Miami Heat Title!"

It was a great game and the one chance Spurs had to steal the title from Heat!

I am not a great sports writer but even I can tell that the Spurs ran out of gas last night, oil pan started leaking, and Manu forgot to look both ways before crossing the street!

Miami will win game 7!

I AM NOT A SPURS OR HEATS FAN! LAKERS ALL DAY! JUST TELLING IT LIKE IT IS.

Yes, the Spurs really let that one slip through their fingers. Their best thought on winning G7 might be that the Heat, at home & brink of elimination, still needed last night's game handed to 'em on a silver platter. Popovich might say, 'Just don't serve it to 'em, next time.'

Miami's not a great team, not yet, anyway, but now the Heat believe. That's powerful stuff and just what Spoelstra will fuel his guys on in hopes of victory.

Your right confidence is a huge factor. Miami played so bad the first 3 quarters and still ended up winning.

IMO their problem throughout most of these playoffs has been overconfidence.

They fall behind early almost every game. It's like they don't even care (especially DWade) in the first half and just assume that they'll be able to pull it out by playing their butts off at the end.

If Miami wants to win Game 7 they're going to have to play a full 4 quarter and not let San Antonio jump out to another early lead.

where did duncan go in the second half? 25 pts in first half and then basically vanished in the second. lots of errors allowed the heat to remain alive. can't see another game like this by the spurs in game 7.... hate to say, but this could be a heat blow-out! game 6 is gonna haunt S.A. for a long time!

My thoughts are the same. Miami is so good that they feel like they can turn it on at anytime. Which they have proven they can but you are right it could come back and sting them in the **** especially in game 7.

Although Pop is a great coach but I think a little fault goes to him for Timmy being a non factor at the end of the game. He was not in foul trouble, they could have had him out there for the defensive rebound. Pops theory was because there were so many shooters out on the floor for Miami that he didn't want to keep Bosh beyond the arc with no D. Timmy would have had to play off the ball. But that's exactly what I would have wanted in the last seconds a Chris Bosh 3 point attempt not an offensive rebound and Ray Allen taking the 3! When it comes down to the last seconds of the game it's on the coach to win the game or in this case make mistakes and lose it.
