2013 NBA Finals :: Can't Beat the Heat
The Miami Heat are the 2013 NBA Champions defeating the San Antonio Spurs in 7 games... in thrilling style. The Spurs were seconds away from winning the championship in game 6, however with a couple of lucky bounces, missed San Antonio free throws, and a miracle shot by Ray Allen... Miami stormed back under the leadership of the MVP, Lebron James, to win it's 3rd Championship in NBA Finals history.
One of the Greatest
The Miami Heat won 66 games this season and then rode an easy wave to the Finals where they had a little bit of difficulty beating the Spurs, but they got the job done. The Heat's seson will go down as the 10th best all-time greatest performance and it seems like Miami is still young and ready for more, making them a contender for the all-time greatest team ever.
The choice to make Lebron the MVP for the second straight year was a pretty easy decision. Lebron was playing almost every single minute of every game, scoring record breaking stats, and leading the Heat by being signigicant in almost every play in the game. With players like Dwayne Wade, Ray Allen, and Chris Bosh by his side, it seems like Lebron will captain this team to many more Championships.
Game 6 Steal
Ray's game-tying 3 pointer at the end of game 6 will probably go down as one of the most miraculous shots in NBA history. The Spurs were up 12 points at the beginning of the 4th quarter but they let the Heat creep back slowly until the final seconds where Lebron missed 3-pointers but luckily Chris picked up a rebound and got the ball to the greatest 3-point shooter in NBA history and Ray made no mistake with only seconds left on the clock.
It could be easily argued that the referees let the Heat back into the series by a bunch of non-calls that lead the Heat comeback in game 6. There were some obvious Miami fouls that were never called late in the 4th quarter, but it's the Spurs fault for not winning that game because three different San Antonio players missed foul shots late in that same game which would have sealed victory for the Spurs.
