If you turned off your TV with 30 seconds left in last night’s thrilling NBA Finals matchup between the Heat and the Spurs, you missed the greatest comeback in Miami Heat playoffs history!
The Heat clawed back from a double-digit deficit early in the 4th quarter to force overtime in game 6 Tuesday night at American Airlines Arena in Miami. The Heat, helped by crucial 3 pointers from LeBron James and Ray Allen, defeated the hapless San Antonio Spurs 103-100 to force a game 7 on Thursday night.
It was funny at the time, but to the NBA, a superstar player kicking an opposing player in the groin on national TV is no laughing matter.
The incident occurred during the 4th quarter of the Miami Heat vs Charlotte Bobcats game on Wednesday. Miami was ahead 83-79 with 8:12 left in the 4th quarter, when Wade dribbled the basketball down the court and was fouled by sessions. As the ref blew the whistle, Wade lifted his left leg impacting Sessions’ nether regions.
It was difficult to believe that the kick was not intentional, as Sessions rolled around on the floor in obvious distress.
