Miami heat level the series last week before that huge game 3. Let’s take a lookback though. How on earth did that happened?
4th quarter story, just like any other big games during the previous part of the 2012-2013 season, both regular and post season wars.
The first three quarters appeared like a deja vu sequence for both teams in Game 1. Close fight. But if the game 1 turned in the visitor’s favor. This time, it went on the home team. We saw the last few minutes of the third quarter swindling into the side of Miami Heat. They had a 10-point lead after 36 minutes of action.
But then, just in the middle of the scorching run by the Heat, so was this emphatic block by one of their superstars in Lebron James.
Forget the fact that he hadn’t scored more than 18 points in every game of the series. Forget that he struggled in his shooting (like the way he used to when he faced the same opponent in ’07 finals).
He just got better defensive plays, and talk about timing and elevation, eh? When it comes to blocking a big man like Tiaggo Splitter.
If his other “large guy” teammates can do that just like him (or even “better than him”) they should have a better poise when it comes to big games like the Finals. The Birdman can be an exception for that though.
Back to the run though, i think the Spurs had their worst loss ever in the Finals, as that game was then apparently the large margin of the series.
Until Game 3 massacre happened at the Alamo dome court.
But then, that block will go down as one of the main highlight plays of the 2013 Finals, whether his team will win the big lone or will go home empty-handed.
