Spurs made an illegal substitution after Allen hit the three and the refs were reviewing it.
That would be a technical foul, free throws and possession, game would have probably ended in regular time.

On to tonight...Heat will take it, Spurs threw away the championship.

I still vex at Popovich's decisions. Benching Duncan.  Especially in the final play of the 4th.  Bosh get that rebound too easy to kick it out to Ray Ray

Heat wins... and I don't think it will be close.  I think Spurs come out early and look to get Ginobili going... him and Duncan.  I think the way Duncan disappeared in the second half has to concern Popovich, and I think it's not lost on him that Duncan was having his way with Bosh.  I think they look to get him off to spot them an early big lead again.  I also think he'll give a try to getting Ginobili going the way he did in Game 5. 

I don't think this would be lost on the Heat... if Spoelstra too inexperienced to recognize this (and if I can, I'm sure he can as well) then Riley go be in he ear.  I think the Heat will look to get Wade going, while reminding LeBron to look for his own opportunities early and often.  Neither of these teams have won two games in a row this series, but I see Miami bucking that trend tonight.

Spurs let the get slip out of their hands and Miami seized the moment. I really do not think the Spurs will be able to pull it off tonight, they blew their opportunity.

I will say this, if there's one team who can mentally prepared to play after such a devastating loss it's the Spurs led my Pop. Physically??? That's where my concern lies, not sure if they're recovered from that intense game 6.

Manu put up 18 pts and 5 asts tonight, to go with 4 TOs.  Parker had 10 pts and 3 assists with LeBron in his ass.  Ginobili didn't lose this for the Spurs, though he catching the most heat.

Duncan missed two high percentage shot around the basket near the end that he usually converts and the Heat were able to capitalize from that.

I was a good game game though, the Spurs played surprizingly well....Green IMO was the player who showed his inexperience with his blunders. The Heat was the better team on the night, kudos to them :beermug:

ESPN was running a stat where Green was shooting something ridiculous like 66% from 3-point range, but only 40% when contested.  Last night he was 1 for 12 from the field, 1 for 6 from deep.  And the one he made he was wide open after getting a loose ball and running to the left corner.  David Fizdale, the Miami assistant had been saying all along that most of Green's made shots were the results of mistakes on defense... and this game proved him right.  They really challenged Green, forcing him to put the ball on the floor.  Much like SA did to Ray Allen.  Allen had a couple turnovers, but he's also excelled over the years at putting the ball on the floor and hitting that little close-range bank shot.  Have to tip your hat to Miami the way they defended last night... overally holding the Spurs to 37.8% from the field, 31.6% from deep.

Not just de NBA, that is de Miami fan base in general... why yuh think de Fusion MLS side fold and de MLB Marlins always in trouble?  The Dolphins are the only consistent professional draw down there.  Maybe now the Heat as well.  The diehard sports fans can't afford to go to live events and those with the money fickle.

Too many immigrants who don't care about American sports.  The MLS side was unsuccessful becuz the immigrants spit upon yankee soccer, like a lot of people here do.

So they don't care enough to see basketball games with the BIG 3, King James??? I've seen many games where the seats is like half filled but when Miami goes on the road the arenas are completely sold out.

Anybody complaining about fair-weather fans is just bitter because of jealousy or some kinda idleness.  It really shouldn't bother anyone enough to comment.
Any team that Lebron James joined was going to get thousands of new fans, not just in Miami but all over the world.

That's nonsense.  Bandwagon fans irritate all diehard fans... even here on the forum it used to have a setta "waggonist" talk.  It is particularly irritating when some Heat fans want to carry on about the team when it obvious they really not that passionate about the team... or even the game.  I rooted for the Heat but me eh no Heat fan.  Having seen the way some of these Heat fans carry on they deserve to get called out.

People can be passionate about their city though.
I'm a bandwagon fan. I didn't watch much before 2010.  I live here in Miami and I reserve the right to enjoy the play of any local team, or anything Miamian, at any point in time that I choose. If that irritates someone that is damn funny to me, and I feel a little sorry for them.

There are people who don't live in Miami and never followed the team and now pretend that they did, maybe that category of fan is what bothers people the most.

What's wrong with being a lebron or wade fan?  To back lebron or wade you MUST also be a Heat fan?
I doh get that one.

So what yall think about when Miami travels and the locals show up in Heat gear?  That is real kicks.
