The Miami Heat beat the San Antonio Spurs 103 to 100 in OT of Game 6 of The NBA Finals. It was an epic contest in Miami and made closer than it should have been, by the fact that Le Bron James, the NBA MVP did not play his best game. It wasn’t the Spurs Defense but King James himself, seemingly always looking for the fowl or afraid to just go up and dunk the basketball in the collective face of the opponent. And it’s not like Le Bron can’t do it; he can and has done it before.
Did Ray Allen Foul Manu Ginobili?
Some say that a play where Spurs star Manu Ginobili was headed for the basket but was defended by Heat shooter Ray Allen was the difference because Allen wasn’t called for a foul.
If you look at the play in the video, Manu Ginobili was clearly running with the basketball in his arms, and not dribbling it. In other words, he should have been called for a “walk” and the ball turned-over to The Heat. In any case, The Heat did get the ball back.
The game ended in Overtime with a great Chris Bosh block of a Danny Green three-point attempt that would have forced a second OT had it went in.
It did not.
The NBA Finals Game 7 is Thursday.
