    Manu Ginobili and Tiago Splitter need to not play just awful like they did tonight! They were a pain to watch!! But Wade finally starting to look like the old Wade. I'm a Spurs fan (live in SA) but I've always loved D-Wade, except for tonight of course!!
    so true in all statements other than that I live in the san Francisco bay area, lol

    Taking out Duncan was a bad move.

    And good free throw shooters missing free throws down the stretch was bad too.

    Overall, excellent game. Hopefully game 7 is similar.

    That was one of the best games I've seen in a long time. Just heartbreaking to see my team lose a 5 point lead with like 30 seconds left. I think that When Manu drove and Leonard with the 3 were both fouls but it shouldn't have come down to that. Duncan and Leonard were the only ones that played well. Diaw did well on D. Real tough loss. But the AT&T Center was so loud for the viewing party!

    I agree that was one of the best finals games I have watched in a long time.

    I don't see how ppl can blame the refs considering the Heat had questionable calls against them for 3 and a half quarters.

    Lebron finally showed up big at the end. Bosh had some great plays of his own, and Allen reminded everyone that it isn't all about Danny Green.

    Bosh and Lebron also did a great job shutting down Parker and nullifying the pick and roll.

    Blaming the refs for the Spurs losing is a copout. Spurs missed two free throws in the last minute that would have made it impossible for the Heat to tie. The refs didn't make those shots for the Heat either.

    It will be interesting to see what the Spurs have left for game 7. That was an emotional roller coaster for both teams.

    Yea the spurs completely choked out in 4th but honestly when you have less than 30 seconds to go, isn't it unacceptable for the ref to miss a foul that can be a game-winner?

    I just read something interesting. When the refs stopped play to review Ray Allens three the Spurs illegally substituted Tim Duncan into the game. Now that would have caused an uproar if he would have made a game winning shot!

    It's not an iillegal substitution. But more like a loophole.

    Technically it was an illegal substitution according to the rules since reviews are not dead ball situations and you cannot make subs. The Spurs were lucky they didn't get caught otherwise it could have been a technical foul and the Heat would get a free throw.

    I'm so nervous about tonight. People are saying the Spurs will be broken mentally after the last game but the Spurs are always prepared so I don't count them out just yet. If headband-less Lebron shows up then the Heat will win.

    I'm ready for tonight too, but unfortunately this game probably won't be as good as game six. There are lots of interesting story lines for this game. How much do the Spurs have left emotionally and physically? How much will Wade play? Will Mike Miller shoot another three missing a shoe?

    I think and hope if the Heat keep it close they can put it away in the late third quarter and the fourth.

    I was pulling for the Spurs, but LeBron brought it when his team needed it.

    Ginobli made several critical errors down the stretch. I think it may have been from exhaustion.

    That was a really good series, and the last game wasn't a blowout.

    I really was surprised. I didn't think SA would play good enough for it to go 7 games.

    Wade finally stepped up when he needed to.

    Congrats to Miami.

    Tony Parker played terrible. He was 3/12 from the field with four assists. He deserves the blame instead of Manu! But Kawhi Leonard was awesome and Tim Duncan as well. The Spurs just made huge mistakes in the Fourth. I don't think I've ever been this brokenhearted. I love my Spurs though and the Crowd at the AT&T Center was unbelievable. Great season guys.

    I knew the Spurs were in trouble when only Kawhi Leonard was carrying them.


    Great season and I can't wait until next year.

    Now baseball and soccer will carry me until football season. This Puig kid of the Dodgers is nice.

    Yes I'm a sports junky

    Not sure that either one deserves "blame." All they can do is give it their all.

    Father Time catches up with everyone. They just didn't have enough gas in the tank.

    I'm not a supporter of either teams. It was a great finals but I would have wanted to see the old guards from Spurs get their rings though.

    Parker literally choked the entire game lol :P

    I think the Heat defense had a lot to do with how Tony Parker played. They got back in transition and stopped easy baskets and LeBron did a great job on him along with the rest of the team.

    I'm still trying to process the Spurs losing. :(

    What's funny is that I was fine with the Heat winning until they knocked out my Pacers. I'm fickle like that.

    Yup, after the first couple of games Miami made big changes defensively. They put Lebron on Parker, and Bosh would come up to help whenever the Spurs would try to set a screen. It worked almost all the time since Parker had a lot of trouble getting into the paint.

    Miami also decided to shut down Danny Green after game 6 which was a big factor in deciding the series.

    I don't know if Miami can win 3 in a row now. It all depends on Wade's health next season and if Miami can find a quality big man to play down low. People are suggesting that they should move Bosh but he is an integral part of that team even if he doesn't score or rebound as much as he should.

    Some can't see it (or don't want to see it) but we are in the LeBron era. The spurs did so much but still it wasn't enough. Awesome finals, congrats both teams.
