NBA Finals: Too Many Blowouts

Led by Danny Green and his torrid shooting, the Spurs raced by Miami last night. It was the fourth straight one-sided game in the Finals.

Led by Danny Green and his torrid shooting, the Spurs raced by Miami last night. It was the fourth straight one-sided game in the Finals.

Since the NBA Finals’ opening game, an epic instant-classic, the series between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs has lacked much drama.

Game two was an absolute route, as the Heat ran away with the game in the first few minutes of the fourth quarter and eventually won by 19 to even the series. In game three, things swung the other way as the Spurs romped past Miami.

Game four was another unexciting blowout–the Heat took their turn to win with ease, again blasting San Antonio in the second half.

Going into last night’s game five, the series appeared due for a more tight contest. Alas, it wasn’t to be; the Spurs scored at will throughout the night (they shot 60% from the field) in a fairly easy victory that gave them a 3-2 series lead going back to South Beach.

All told, four out of the five Finals games have been one-sided, with each team getting chances to blast the other. As a result, this series, while close in terms of wins, has not been nearly as exciting as one might hope.

Going back to Miami for game six and (maybe) game seven there is still time for some more close, entertaining battles between two teams that appear to be well matched. I’m certainly hoping for some tighter games. I’m not sure I can sit through another route.
