The San Antonio Spurs looked like they were headed to a fifth NBA title Tuesday night when they had a 10 point lead going into the fourth quarter, then had a five-point edge with 28 seconds left in regulation after blowing the lead. But the Miami Heat never gave up, forcing a Game 7

This video shows just how quickly times can change. It was taken during LeBron’s birthday bash back in 2010 when he was still with the Cavaliers and Danny Green was his bench-riding rookie teammate on the Cavs. You can see Green in the background of this video looking pretty awkward and not really knowing what to do with himself.
Fast forward three years later and Green is a breakout...
Ghosts of NBA Finals Past: Manu Ginobili returns to top form in Game 5
Manu Ginobili’s career will be defined by winning.
He has the chance to the greatest international player of all time…who doesn’t start for his NBA team.
That’s why it was only fitting, that the player who is most known for coming off the bench, would find himself in the starting line-up for the biggest...
Manu Ginobili wasn’t able to carry over his strong play from the Spurs’ Game 5 win (24 points, 10 assists) into Game 6 Tuesday night. In his second straight start, Ginobili scored just 9 points, had 8 (game-high) of the team’s 13 turnovers and called the 103-100 OT loss devastating.
According to TheStar.com:
“I have no clue how we’re going to be re-energized,” said Ginobili...
With the San Antonio Spurs ahead 3-2 in the NBA Finals over the Miami Heat, it’s safe to begin looking at who a potential Finals MVP for the series could be if the Spurs win the title in six or seven games, or the Heat force a seventh game and win the championship.
The numbers provided below come from NBA.com/stats are only taken from the averages through the five NBA Finals...
Let’s play the “What If?” game.
What if Tony Parker‘s last-second shot at the end of regulation in Game 6 found its way inside the net? Well, the Spurs would have won their fifth NBA title in the Tim Duncan era, Parker likely would’ve won his second Finals MVP and ESPN would feature nothing but “LeBron’s Tarnished Legacy” headlines until Tim Tebow is named the starting...
Did you miss any of what the San Antonio Spurs or Miami Heat had to say after their Game 5 clash? Well if you did, you are in luck. Our friends over at News 4 San Antonio have you covered.
Here is what Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, Coach Popovich and Spoelstra had to say about Game 5 before the scene shifts to Miami for Game 6 tomorrow.
One more defensive rebound, and the Spurs would have been spraying champagne.
One more board, one measly Heat miss corralled by the Spurs in the final 23 seconds of regulation, and the NBA Finals are over. Forget a Game 7, forget LeBron James’ headband, forget Manu Ginobili laying a gigantic egg for the umpteenth time in the series. It should be over. Tim Duncan should be passionlessly...
Chris Bosh provided great defense for the Heat down the stretch of Game 6, blocking the Spurs’ last two field goals attempt in overtime. First, Bosh blocked Tony Parker’s jumper with the Spurs down 1 and 33 seconds remaining, and later swatted Danny Green’s potential game-tying three at the buzzer to help the Heat hold on to win Game 6, 103-100, and force a Game 7.
Deep in the heart of Texas people tend to overlook the San Antonio Spurs. This might not be happening right now since they are playing in the NBA Finals, but more often than not fans forget about how great the Spurs have been in the past two decades.
David Robinson came to the team in 1989 and that draft pick proved to be a catalyst that started the Spurs winning ways. The team...
How will the Spurs bounce back?
That is the question that will linger during the winner-take-all Game 7 vs. the Heat on Thursday. Less than 48 hours after suffering a heartbreaking overtime loss, San Antonio must regroup -- and quickly.
The Spurs are still probably replaying this moment in their heads.
But from the looking at this footage, it appears this loss didn't sit well...
Amazingly enough I hadn’t caught up with Brendan Bowers on the podcast since I relaunched it. So, today I finally did. We talked about the game seven happening tonight in Miami. We talked about the draft and what the Cavaliers should really be focused on as they head into 2013/14.
The 2013 NBA finals and what the subtext is
The storylines in the game for Cleveland
Distant history tells us that the Spurs won’t recover from their Game Six loss.
June 7, 1978.
35 years and 13 days separate the Spurs from the last team to win Game Seven on the road. The 1978 Washington Bullets overcame the Seattle Supersonics in a strange anticlimax to a great series. It wasn’t a game decided by the stars, as both teams’ leading scorers fouled out and watched...
