All seven games were tightly contested for three plus quarters or longer. Each game was decided by a key run or a key shot that put the game out of reach.

The San Antonio Spurs were “oh so close” to bringing home their fifth NBA title in 15 years. When I say “oh so close,” I mean they were up five points, and they were 28 seconds away from likely reeling in the Larry O’Brien trophy (key word being likely.) ”It isn’t over ’till it’s over” and “it isn’t over ’till the fat lady sings” are phrases that will...
