Miami Heat Force a Game 7 By Defeating San Antonio Spurs in Overtime in Game 6


Why That Matters:

– The last game of the series will be played in Miami, giving the Heat home court advantage and fan support for the final win

– The Heat were able to virtually shut down Danny Green of the Spurs, who has been one of their key 3-point shooters throughout the playoffs

– After coming off of a season-high game, Manu Ginobili looked almost at his worst last night, turning the ball over to the Heat numerous times

– The Spurs were up in the last seconds of regulation, but allowed Ray Allen to shoot a 3 with seconds left in the game to tie it up and bring them into OT

Other Tidbits:

– Final score: Heat 103 – Spurs 100

– Game 7 will be played on Thursday at 9pm EST

– Many believe that Spurs coach Gregg Popovich made some strange calls during the game that may have led to the loss – particularly removing all star Tim Duncan with seconds left in the game, which allowed the Heat to get rebounds they may not have gotten had he been in (specifically the rebound the led to Ray Allen’s game tying 3pt shot)

– Tim Duncan was on fire in the first half, scoring 25 points – half of the total points the Spurs had scored at the time

– Manu Ginobili had a questionable hit on Lebron James in the 3rd quarter that many people thought should have been a flagrant foul (see below)
