NBA Finals: Disorganized Thoughts On Game Six

With the San Antonio Spurs leading the Finals 3-2, the Miami Heat will host another game in a series which has seen blowouts in its last few contests. Here are some scattered thoughts going into the series’ meaningful (and potentially deciding) sixth game:

It is time for 'Bron to step up!

It is time for ‘Bron to step up!

  • It is time for Lebron to wake from his slumber. Seriously. The King has not been his usual regal self in the Finals, shooting under 44% from the field (he shot almost 57% in the regular season) and getting to the line at a pedestrian rate–he is taking 3.8 freebies per game.  He also has only gone for over 20 points twice this series. I think it is about time he drops over 40!
  • The Finals are weird in the sense that, while the Spurs lead the series 3-2, the Heat just need to hold serve in two home games to win it all.
  • Which Manu is going to grace the hardwood for the Spurs? After Ginobili disappeared in games two, three, and four, the 35-year-old exploded in game five, dropping 24 on Miami and dishing out ten assists. Will good Manu or bad Manu show up tonight?
  • With everyone talking about Danny Green as the potential Finals MVP, how will Green, who is shooting a preposterous 66% from three land in the Finals, do in game six with Miami’s defense sure to be keying on him all night?
  • My final note is a bold prediction: Udonis Haslem will score 6 or more points tonight. He is due do contribute a midrange jumper or two, having scored just two points the past three games. I CAN SENSE IT COMING!

    Well No Haslem but what a game!! The craziest and best and most exciting ending I’ve ever seen. Perhaps The Heat have the stadium management and departing fans to thank for the slight in giving up. The Heat obviously hadn’t, but if truth be told, I thought the game was over. JS

    • Thanks for the comment! Yeah, I was surprised that Haslem didn’t play at all. It was an INCREDIBLE game. Heat killed SA with the offensive rebounds at the end of the 4th. Instant classic.
