NBA Finals-Game 7
Not only will be one of the greatest Finals this Game 7, but it personified everything that is great about this sport. Every Game 7 is special, no matter the round. It’s an elimination game for both teams. And after six hard battle games, the series comes down to just 48 minutes tonight at American Airlines Arena, Miami, Florida.
Tonight’s game will be the first NBA Finals Game 7 for the Miami Heat and the second for the San Antonio Spurs, who won the 2005 title in seven games against the Detroit Pistons.
The players Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and head coach Gregg Popovich were all a part of that 2005 team, and will look to repeat the feat. This will be the fifth title in franchise history if they attained. Two of those championships were won on the road in 1999 against the Knicks and in 2007 against Cleveland.
On the other side is Miami, who will look to get the victory at home. Lebron James has played in four Game 7s out of 137 playoff games of his 10-year career. James is 2-2 in Game 7s, with wins in the last two, and brings Game 7 averages of 33.8 points. Although LeBron has averaged those points in four Playoff Game 7s, none of those have come in the Finals.
With the victory, the Heat would be back-to-back champions and on the edge of a dynasty. James would have his revenge on the Spurs after losing in the 2007 Finals, while Wade would have his third championship.
As for the Spurs, they will be playing for the franchise’s fifth title in 15 seasons. Tim Duncan has been a part of every title run, with Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili. A fourth championship for them would certainly great for their careers.
There is a lot of stake for the Miami Heat tonight; they have home court advantage, crazy fans and a team that is hunger for the win. As well as the Spurs, Miami have some experience in their roster; that is the case of Ray Allen, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade.
Both teams have their own history and a great roster. With this been said, the team with more effort and energy will walk away with the championship. Many expect a battle in this Game 7, the team with more effort plays; more energy plays that can spell the difference and swing momentum will win the championship. Good luck for both teams!
For this Game 7, the Heat is favorite with -6 odds.
NHL Stanley Cup Recap- Game 4
In fact, Game 4 was probably the most imperfect and intense game of the Final so far. Both the Bruins and Blackhawks were chaotic in transition and careless with the puck. There were breakaways, rebounds, long slap shots and tips. The result was 11 goals in all, coming from all over the ice on Wednesday night at TD Garden.
The game took longer than 60 minutes. Jonathan Toews scored a goal and Tuukka Rask made some exceptional saves. The Blackhawks ended up by one goal of Brent Seabrook into OT for the victory, defeating the Bruins, 6-5, leveling the series 2-2 and gave them the chance to win the Cup by holding serve at home.
Chicago’s first five goals all came off passes, rebounds or deflections that left Rask in vulnerable positions. However, it was definitely a really exciting game between the two as the game got to overtime. At the end, Chicago accomplished the victory.
This game is the highest-scoring game in this year’s NHL playoffs and raised questions about how the final three games of this deadlocked series will look.
For now Game 5 will be a challenge for both teams in Chicago on Saturday night.
