As the Heat trailed by 10 points entering the fourth quarter, the NBA began to prep for a Spurs postgame championship ceremony which irritated LeBron James and Chris Bosh and helped fuel a furious rally that resulted in a OT and Heat 103-100 win to force a Game 7.  There would be no celebration Tuesday night. According to the Miami Herald: “I noticed it,” James said. “We saw the championship board already out there, the yellow tape. That’s why you play the game to the final buzzer. To come out with a win like that makes it greater, when you’re able to will everything you have as individuals and have a game like this.” Said Dwyane Wade: “When they brought out that yellow rope and you know you’re not the one that’s going to celebrate, we keep fighting and believing.” Chris Bosh: “They started bringing out that yellow tape and I got pissed off.” — Ethan J.

  • We saw the security guards and yellow tape out too. It was bad timing. We love the HEAT because these are the same basketball players who won GOLD MEDALS for TEAM USA in the last OLYMPICS. We are not dumping on or bailing out on them now. Chris, stay off the floor and play; LBJ, it's time for your 50-point game. We know you can score 50-points. Wade (from our hometown Chicago), it's crunch time; we need you. Ray, thanks for 3-point tie; it ain't over until fat lady sings. All of the HEAT players, make the HEADLINES tonight for TEAM USA. Spurs' Coach Popovich told his players to make the newspaper in game 3;

    MIAMI HEAT MAkE THE NEWSPAPERS FOR TEAM USA. GO MIAMI HEAT; WIN GAME 7 FOR TEAM USA!
