Right, because nobody has won it yet. There are at least 60 min to go. And the outcome of Game 7 can't be blamed on coaching decisions in Game 6. A potential chance at clinching the series, yes, was lost. But the Heat (or Spurs) will have earned it if they come out on top in Game 7.

Plus you have to give some credit to Miami for, you know, taking advantage of Spurs mistakes and hitting two 3-pointers in the dying seconds. Hardly a case of passively standing by while SA gave them everything. When Dallas beat the Heat in 2011, the series swung on a huge 4th quarter comeback in Game 2. Was that a choke or a great comeback? In sports it's usually a bit of both.

Not sure how Game 1, 3 and 5 were more important than 2, 4, and 6? Seeing as they were all Finals games? And 6 was the only one so far with elimination potential? Both teams have risen up on different nights, both have obviously won important games given we're going 7.
