San Antonio Spurs
In a rematch of last years final which went 7 games, the San Antonio Spurs square off against the Miami Heat and Tony Parker and company hope to prevent LeBron and the Heat from winning their third consecutive NBA championship.
With the NBA Playoffs starting, we look back on the top moments in NBA Playoff history.
Tim Duncan scored a season-high 31 points Wednesday night before fouling out in the second overtime, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Washington Wizards for an NBA-high 16th time in a row, holding on for a 125-118 victory.
LeBron James and Maverick Carter have been inseparable since they were little kids. Extremely close friends, James trusts Carter with virtually every aspect of his life. For the last few days, they were not on speaking terms.
James led the Heat to their second straight NBA title, scoring 37 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in a 95-88 victory Thursday night in a tense Game 7 of the NBA Finals that lived up to its billing.
Experience or youth? It’s often the difference between winning and losing in sports and Game 7 will feature plenty of both for the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat.
And then there was one. One game to decide the value of a year’s worth of work trying to become NBA champion. For one team, it’s one last shot at glory as the window is nearly closed on a historic run and for the other, immortality winning back-to-back championships.
No matter what happens Thursday night, LeBron James and the Miami Heat, and Tim Duncan’s San Antonio Spurs have already won titles and secured a place in NBA history. Now is their opportunity to elevate it.
Nobody wants to be remembered for choking? Just ask Bill Buckner.
When LeBron James lost the headband Tuesday night, the Miami Heat’s fortunes turned around.
