Did you feel that?
That kidney shot, that dagger to the heart, that excruciating experience that was watching the Spurs fall to the Heat in this year’s NBA Finals?
When Tony Parker hit that wild turnaround over LeBron James to seal a Game 1 win, the shot clock seemingly stuck at 0.1 seconds for an eternity, it became the Spurs’ series to lose.
After responding to the Game 2 loss with a 36-point shellacking of the Heat in Game 3, it seemed like they were well on their way to locking up their fifth NBA championship.
After the San Antonio Spurs let Game 6 slip from their grasp Tuesday night, the Miami Heat tied up the series 3-3 heading into Game 7. The superstars dug deep and delivered, with the Miami Heat winning their second World Championship 95-88 for back-to-back years on their home floor of the American Airlines Center.
In keeping with the tradition of this series, Game 5 of the NBA Finals was all about a team trying to make a comeback. After trading wins with the Miami Heat in the first four games, the San Antonio Spurs survived a late-game push by the Heat to pull out an impressive 114-104 victory Sunday night in their last contest at home for the season.
