It was an intense game six between the Heat and the Spurs which probably had Heat fans literally at the edge of their seats. The battle was fierce with the Spurs not letting up and seemingly planning to end the series with a 4-2 win. However, no more than a minute before the end of the fourth quarter, the Heat proved that they will not be going down that easy. With Ray Allen stepping up to do what James or Wade could not, the Heat managed to go for an OT and ultimately even the series at 3-3.
It was obviously Ray Allen’s time at the spotlight when he made the move that saved the championship for the Miami Heat. At the frantic last seconds of the fourth quarter, Allen stroked a three-point-shot that enabled them to sort out their game at the overtime. It is then that he made a key defensive play that led to the 103-100 win for the Heat.
Once the additional period kicked in, it was clear for the Miami Heat that it was the chance that they had to seize. With 1:43 left at the overtime, James was able to turn the game to their favor with a 101-100 lead. This was an advantage that was fairly easy to get past but Ray Allen, along with Chris Bosh, did not make it easy at all with their powered-up key defensive stops that halted Tony Parker’s and Danny Green’s attempts to recover their disrupted win. After Allen drew a foul from Parker, he easily made two free throws that cushioned the heat’s lead at 103-100. Eventually, the Miami Heat emerged victorious at game six.
It was clear that James was having a rough time at the fourth quarter. Perhaps it is understandable that even the supposed best player on the planet can give in to extreme pressure. However, it was definitely a critical night that had their repeat as NBA champions at stake and fortunately, Allen’s smooth recovery saved the day. Ultimately, with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists, James undoubtedly carried the team to their goal, despite his struggles. However, Allen’s three-point shot will probably be the most that resonates in this game. “It’s going to be a shot that I’m going to remember for a long time,” Allen stated about his feat.
Tuesday night’s game at the American /Airlines Arena certainly was among the most emotionally-jarring games of the NBA history, especially for the passionate Miami Heat fans who probably did not expect the remarkable turn of events. The night certainly gave hardcore NBA fans a rollercoaster ride filled with a lot of ups and downs. Surely, it was a ride that many would want to experience once again like say, the series’ game seven perhaps?
Game seven of the series will be on Thursday. It will be the defining moment that can either give the Miami Heat their back-to-back NBA title or send them back to scratch for the next season.
