Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Well, not the biggest surprise in the world last night. Two evenly matched teams are not going to win/lose 3 in a row against each other. Thus the conundrum of the 2-3-2 continues.

Looks like it's going 7, which means LeBron is going to get his second ring, and Wade's third. Spurs will need to win 2 in a row (or win a game 7 in the Finals on the road against the defending champs). I just read a stat that Miami has not lost 2 in a row since January (and the Heat are not about to cough up a game 7 in the Finals at home).

Although before game 4 I had been thinking that the Spurs would win game 5, and the Heat would win 6 and 7, after watching game 4, I'm not so sure about who is going to win game 5. Regardless, Heat will raise it's third banner.

Spurs really lost their chance to win it last night. Barring a miracle, they're done.

Well, so far Dwyane Wade has shown up for one game, as has Gary Neal. It's been a classic series with both teams showing what they can do to the other and leaving me with no idea who wins game 5. I think the Spurs will put out the series, I think they can win games 5 and 6. If it goes seven, I doubt they will win, though.

Your post mortem for the Spurs appears to have been premature, gblews.

Not really. Originally I thought the Spurs would win game 5. I only started to waiver a bit when I heard some of the Heat pre-game comments. They sounded like they were going to go for it rather than mail it in knowing they had gotten what they wanted and were headed back home. I wasn't sure of how the Spurs' younger guys would react if the Heat really aggressively defended. But they reacted well.

However, as I have written, I believe the Heat are going to win games 6 and 7, not that I'm rooting for them. I'll have something to celebrate whichever team wins.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Alas, no it won't. The post mortem, it would seem, was correct after all. I won't even let myself entertain the possibility now that the Spurs will take the title. Miami has all the momentum now. Supreme confidence that they can take the Spurs best shot and that the Spurs--when the championship is on the line--can't close the deal. Raucous home crowd. How could Miami lose?

I've been saying to my friends all day and yesterday that the Spurs need to finish it in game six. What was it? They were still up 5 with 28 seconds left? You do not let a team as supremely talented as Miami wriggle off the hook. You keep your foot on their throats and you make your free throws.

Jeez Louise. That sucked eggs.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Y'know, the Spurs have a bit of talent too, so I'd call it a tossup. With the edge going to the home team, but hardly a foregone conclusion.

It'll be a fight.

Re: NBA 2012-13 Discussion

Did you see Gioubli and Duncan after the game? They acted like it was over. Like they'd expended all their energy. They tossed around the word "devastated" and their body language didn't inspire. Sort of like an how am I going to get my old body out there and get 30 points again Thursday night? vibe. I didn't sense a raring to fight vibe. I sensed a Bill Buckner vibe.

I find the Heat nauseating, but I'm not going to get my hopes up. SA acted like they were done. The Heat have all the momentum now. The Heat have all the confidence now. A couple of missed free throws down the stretch and those two defensive rebounds SA couldn't get in the final minute are going to haunt them. I'd love it if SA won, but they're not going to win.

I think the Spurs actually have more good basketball players than the Heat, aside from the big 3. The Heat don't have anything to match what Gary Neal and Danny Green bring. If Ray Ray was a bit younger, maybe, but today, I don't think so.

But in the NBA Finals talent isn't the biggest factor. In fact, I've seen times when it wasn't a factor at all or so it seemed. The key is, which team "wants" it as opposed to which team has GOT to have it. In game 5, the Spurs saw it as an elimination game which they felt like they HAD to have. The Heat played on their heels because they only "wanted" the game.

Game 6 was a game the Heat felt like they HAD to have and that is how they played. SA wanted that game. The Heat HAD to have it.

Game 7 will be the same. Lose the NBA Finals on your home court AND you're the defending champs? That is a game the Heat feels like they MUST have. SA only wants it. SA faces no disgrace, no shame in losing. The Heat will be crucified if they lose.

I'm a bit sorry I'm going to be right about this series. A part of me was really looking forward to watching LaBron and his jockers try to tap dance around this one. Guess I'll have to be satisfied with needling SA fans because the Lakers will still have the most championships in the last 15 years.

And, at the end, SA just didn't have enough left in the tank. I can't say I'm surprised. They gave it away in game six and couldn't get it back. Miami rewarded again. Isn't it heartwarming?
