2013 NBA Finals – It is only appropriate that these great Finals will be decided with a game 7. The San Antonio Spurs had just about wrapped up game 6 and were already thinking of where they would celebrate another NBA championship. Then they collapsed, got unlucky, made mistakes, threw the game — whatever it was, they somehow lost and here we are. Can the savvy veteran group bounce back?
Just about any other team in the Spurs’ circumstances would be severely distraught and hardly able to process what happened in 48 hours. And even San Antonio players have shown emotions for once. Manu Ginobili was probably most devastated after his abysmal performance and the heartbreaking loss.
Still, the Spurs will probably be fine emotionally, and game 6 drained as much energy from Miami players as it did for the Spurs. Pretty much everyone is banged up now and that’s the only way it could be with the season ending in a one game finale for all the marbles.
There is no doubt San Antonio has played a better brand of basketball overall, but game 7 is just unbelievably hard to call. No team has won back-to-back games in this series, so, if anything, that is a good trend for the Spurs.
