05:46 PM ET 06.19 | Chris Bosh was part of the problem. The Miami Heat didn't attack for most of Game 6 and for that Tim Duncan abused them, and Bosh especially. Duncan scored 30 points through the first three quarters, but then it all changed. LeBron James lost his headband and came alive, but it was Bosh who held Duncan scoreless in the final 21 minutes of the overtime game. The Heat big man also grabbed an offensive board and found Ray Allen for an unfathomable three that sent the game to overtime, then finished with a block of Danny Green on the Spurs' final shot attempt. Bosh continued his hot streak into Wednesday, when he called out the many Heat fans for leaving the game early when it appeared Miami had lost in regulation. "For all those guys who left, don't come back for Game 7," he said. "You can't get let back in after you leave. I know that. Hell, I've been to games. You can't leave a game and then come back. It doesn't make any sense; you left. It's not punishment, that's protocol."

Shame that the Spurs may not get the NBA title because of a missed foul call on Ginobili at the end.

No blood no foul. Manu should've shot a floater.

Shame Manu is not half the player he once used to be.
Shame Manu didn't call a timeout when they still had one.
Shame Pop went with a small lineup thus having no chance of getting crucial rebounds.
Shame KL is too young and inexperienced to ice 2 free throws.

Finally, James is just that good a player. And Allen did what he's done all his life. They got lucky bounces but fortune favors the brave. The end.

Not to mention the foul called a block by Bosh.

Do the refs favor the brave too?

I do agree with Bosh calling out the fair weather, bandwagon Heat fans. The second they notice that the game was over. People started to walk to the exit. What made it better was those that left weren't allowed to reenter to see the game.

Honestly.....I don't think Manu got fouled on that drive.

Now the final play when Bosh blocked Green's shot.....well.....that's another matter, IMHO.

Chris Bosh came up big when it counted and the fair weather fans that ran out turned out to be the big losers. The big rebound and presence of mind to look for Allen in the corner for the game tying three was rebound was as important as the shot Allen made. This game should go down as the Rebound and the Shot. I'm glad the idiots that gave up on the Heat and left early missed one of the best NBA finals games ever. Lebron you are who we thought you were The Man.

Those that left early were the losers - the end of the 4th was amazing as was OT. Besides, even if they did lose, aren't you supposed to stay and cheer for your team's efforts in getting to the finals?

Hockey fans would stay to applaud their team. NBA fans, not so much.

Maybe the fans leaving is what fired the team up. Well, that and the headband.

The refs favor whoever the lord Stern has chosen them to favor. That being said, in Game 6, most calls were even. Some 50-50, but this one is on the Spurs. The lost it!! KL could have shut it out by making his FT!!!! You can't ask for a better positioning than that. Forget refs or calls.
