Nothing pisses me off more than the refs implementing some unwritten rule that sways the outcome of a game. Is it OK to make a call outside of 5 seconds to go? If not, when is it OK.

So annoying. It is what drove me nuts about our playoff loss to the Ravens too.
What the hell are you talking about. I've seen many calls made in the final seconds of a game. If it's blatent, they usually call it. If it's ticky tack, they usually don't. The point being, they don't want to reward a team with a possible win on a ticky tack foul. They'd rather the players decide the outcome. The Bosh block was a pretty good block. There is no way in hell that was a blatent call. That's a call that could go either way. The hand on the ball was clean. There was a little body contact but it wasn't that big and Bosh still would have blocked it even with no body contact. And the Ginobli drive at the end, that's never going to be called. You see that play a million time during the course of a game and it could be called and it might not get called. Depends on the angle the ref had. And it's not like that was some atrocious foul either. He got the ball first and then came across the arm a little bit.

I don't think either team will blow out the other next game. I think it will be very much like game 6. Stakes are too high. Both teams will show up.

I predict the Spurs will win it this year. But I think the Heat will win it in 2014.

Kind of like that Manu elbow to Lebron's throat and the announcer says "thats a flagrant 1 in the regular season, but not in the Finals"

I think I'm the only spurs fan on this site. The last 2 attempts shouldn't have been called fouls. Those are pretty much no calls. Spurs just blew it.


This is the 2nd time this year my team has had a monumental collapse by players and coaches in postseason. First was broncos ravens, now this.

There's a reason teams don't win game 7s on the road. Spurs lost this series in the last 20 seconds of the 4th quarter. Kawhi will have nightmares about that missed free throw.

Then that mind fart at the end with a 1point deficient and 10.2 on the clock and TP still stuck on the bench he races the full length of the court trying only to force a foul while traveling a mile! All he had to do was call TO immediately save the time , let everyone regroup and bring TP back in and run a damn high percentage play from half court!!! Then you go for two or a foul...

The key thing now may be whether Smiami has it in them to deliver another balls to the walls performance Thursday? The Spurs have pretty much had their number the last two games were it not for the cold 3 shooting and The bad case of Manu's revenge last night they would and should be Champions now.

The Spurs are a vet enough team to shake this off knowing they damn well lost this and were not outplayed
... A fact Miami knows as well. It could be a Spurs blow out in game 7... We'll see soon enough.

I disagree, Ray Allen fouled. There was just so much contact I guess the refs did not want the game to end that way but it was a foul. IMO

Officially 8. But the Heat actually had more team turnovers, 15 vs. the Spurs 13.

The Heat also had more fouls called against them, 26-21, so those blaming the officiating need to just stop. The biggest thing I think is mostly that the Spurs didn't shoot as well as they have most of the series.

I expect a Miami blowout but, imo the only way Spurs win is if Manu has his best game of the series. He hasn't done much they need more scoring from him and less turnovers.

Spurs were shooting at a 60% clip till the 4th. Everyone is looking at what went wrong for the spurs. Sure ginobili stunk it up and ray Allen made the 3. But what lost the game was in bounding the ball to Kawhi and him missing that free throw. That shot goes in there's no controversy about duncan being on the bench. It's a 4 point game.

One missed free throw decided who wins this trophy.

It's a shame that one of the most entertaining performances between several of this generation's greatest players was wasted on a fanbase of fair-weather yacht clubbers.

http://deadspin.com/hundreds-of-heat...laug-514254371



Can you imagine a single other NBA arena in America where hundreds of people leave a ****ing Finals game with 30 seconds left, "their" team (which includes the best player in the world) with the ball...and then beating down the doors trying to get in once they found out it went to OT. Front running personified.

It was kind of a Murphy's Law last 30 seconds for the Spurs. But they played hard, sometimes the ball doesn't bounce your way. But Miami fought back too, LeBron was a champion in the 4th quarter, ray hit a big three. They got a little luck, but it was a pretty awesome game of basketball all around. A classic.

It is a game of bounces. But if that Kawhi free throw goes in. They aren't talking about how great Lebron was. They'd be talking about his missed shots during the game, his out of bounds play that was reviewed and the big turnover in the final minutes.

I credit the heat with pressuring the spurs at the end. Spurs crumbled under pressure and the heat rose to the occasion.

Yup. 16 points. The haters will have to wait at least another couple of days to talk about how much he sucks.

Sure, but you can point to tons of those moments in any sporting event. Its a mixture of both; i think to say that was simply a spurs collapse isn't quite fair to a pretty great Miami effort and another signiture LeBron moment that his detractors will conveniently forget the next time he doesn't come through in the big moment.

That happens everywhere and to be fair the Heat had lost the game. It must have been terribly depressing for the fans. I remember seeing thousands of fans streaming out of Mile High in a 1992 game against KC.

5 pts with 30 seconds? Seems early to me. Odds were long for sure, but you see it happen often enough. Anyway, I guess they paid the price, ha.

To be fair and balanced, here's another Deadspin post showing some pretty cool photos of the Ray Allen shot. I always love looking at the freeze frames of faces in the crowd as they watch a big shot:
