It was the Tony Parker show in South Beach, well kinda. The 11 year veteran scored 21 points on 18 shots, but the only shot that mattered was the buzzer-beater that beat the shot clock late in the 4th quarter. It couldn’t have been any closer, as replay and high-definitoin could not give a clear picture of when the ball left Parkers finger tips. The Spurs would go on to win the game 92-88 and steal home court advantage from the Heat.
Tim Duncan had 20 points, 14 rebounds and three blocks, and Manu Ginobili scored 13 points for the Spurs, who are in the finals for the first time since 2007 and are pursuing their fifth championship.
Lebron had 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists for his 10th career playoff triple-double, but was just 7 of 16 from the field and missed the last shot in the final 5 seconds of the game. Dwyane Wade scored a quite 17 points.
The Miami Heat are on the way back to the NBA Finals thanks in large part to their star LeBron James who had one of the best playoff performances of his career (32 points, 8 rebounds, 4 assists, 2 blocks, 1 steal, 8-17 FG, 1-2 3pt, 15-16 FT).
Lebron and the Heat pounded the Pacers (99-76) so bad that on his way to the bench to watch the end of the game he stopped court side to say hello to David Beckham.
The Heat will take on the the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals.
With all the jokes the last few days about Lebron James flopping, you just knew something was going to happen in game 7 of the Pacers-Heat series tonight. Well, it did. The Pacers young star Paul George had enough of the Heats soft play, and let Mario Chalmers know what he thought about the Heats flopping problems.
Lebron James knows how much this game means, not only to his team, but for his legacy among being one of the greatest of all-time. Well the King has come out in game 7 against the Pacers and made a statement early with this monster put back dunk in which Lebron proceeded to almost rip-off the rim.
Oh, and remember Dwayne Wade? You that other part of the “big three” that has been almost invisible this series. Well, its seems D-Wade has found some you youth in those legs as he already has 6 points through the 1st quarter including this nifty move over Lance Stephenson for the dunk.
