This is the split-second that Chris Bosh saved Miami's season.
Last night, the Spurs were one half away from claiming their fifth NBA championship. Tim Duncan was on fire, Miami's Big Three were invisible. LeBron turned on the jets to get the Heat back in the game, but even in the late moments of the fourth quarter it looked like San Antonio was walking out of Miami with some hardware. Even some Heat fans had given up hope — hundreds left early. To beat traffic.
They missed an epic Heat rally. With under a minute to play, James put the team on his back, knocking down threes and scooping up rebounds to send the game to OT. The fans that left? They were stuck outside, pounding on the doors to be let back into the arena.
Overtime was a nail-biter, with the Spurs and Heat traded chances and points. But the Heat never let up. Ray Allen hit two free throws to give Miami a three-point lead. The Spurs called a 20-second timeout. And with 1.9 seconds left, Duncan in-bounded the ball to a scrambling Danny Green, who grabs the pass, scurries into the corner to put up a three-point attempt, and... Chris Bosh completely stuffs him. Heat win, 103-100.
Here's the play as it happened:
What are your predictions for Game 7? Can the Spurs rebound, or will the Heat repeat at champs?
