What a game last night, as the Heat and Spurs made sure we would see a Game 7 in the NBA Finals and who really was the ‘Player of the Game’, from last night’s battle between Miami and San Antonio???
Candidates from San Antonio:
Tim Duncan…Something like 11-13 from the field in the first half and he’s from Wake Forest….
Kawhi Leonard with 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Spurs….
Tony Parker had 19 points and he hit the last five points in regulation for San Antonio and gave them the lead(up by five late) and they really should have held on….Really….But…
Candidates from the Miami Heat:
LeBron James….Right at 32 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists and he nearly brought his team back single-handedly in the second half and especially in the 4th quarter, but when the game is on the line, he can not and I will repeat, he can not handle the pressure….In the clutch, he is NOT the man….He had so many chances at the end of regulation and at the end of OT to hit the big shots and he can not make them, he does not come through….ABJ, anybody but James in the late-game situations….He falls apart when he takes over and tries to get it done by himself…His teammates saved him last night, or there would be NO Game 7….
Chtis Bosh….One of the best defensive games that he has ever, and will say EVER played…The overall team defense by the Heat on Danny Green was unreal and you have to say the blocks by Bosh and the game-saving rebound on the last possession in regulation, were true ‘keepers’….Bosh has his best game yet, by far….The man can play and his rebounds and blocked shots on Green and Tony Parker were epic last night…And he is from Georgia Tech…..
Ray Allen….Without Ray Allen, there is NO Game 7…The three pointer from the right corner was the shot of the 2012/2013 NBA season…It saved the NBA, it saved ABC/ESPN, it made Game 7 possible and I say Ray Allen is your ‘Player of the Game’….I will take Ray Allen and that clutch shot, any day of the week…Allen hit some other key baskets too, but his experience and ‘that shot’ made the game last night…..Ray Allen is your NBA Finals Game 6 ‘Player of the Game’…..Glad that Doris Burke(ABC) talked with Ray after the game….They always talk with LeBron…Should have talked to Chris Bosh too….Without that HUGE rebound by Bosh, the shot by Ray Allen does not exsist……
There you have it and I would say Ray Allen(Miami Heat) for last night’s Game 6 ‘Player of the Game’……
