article imageMiami Heat snatch Game 6 in overtime 103-100

By Leo Reyes     Jun 19, 2013 in Sports
Miami Heat won Game 6 against San Antonio Spurs 103-100 in overtime to tie the score at 3-3 in the NBA Finals at the American Airlines Arena in Miami, Florida Tuesday night.
At three games apiece, the Heat and Spurs will collide for the final game clincher (game seven) on June 20 at Miami Heat's home court for this season's NBA title.
Aside from LeBron James, who made 32 points in the game, Mike Miller, Chris Andersen, Shane Battier and Dwayne Wade made significant contributions in the breathtaking game that resulted in overtime, to the delight of thousands in attendance at the American Airlines Arena.
But without Ray Allen and Chris Bosh, the Spurs would have won the game. Allen did the almost-impossible by making a three-point shot in the dying seconds of the game to even the score for an automatic extension.
The Spurs were ahead in the overtime but the Heat managed to come closer and eventually took the lead less than a minute into the game. This time Chris Bosh made a heroic and clean shot block in the inbound to spoil the Spurs' last chance at the basket, hoping for another extension as the five-minute game extension elapsed.
After trailing the Spurs for most of the first half of Game 6 that ended at 50-44, the Heat managed to stay within range in the third quarter after a quick layup by Mike Miller to slash the Spurs' lead to only one point.
But the Spurs quickly made some adjustments as the Heat was already in penalty situation halfway into the third quarter as they pile up more points late in the quarter.
Tim Duncan topped the scores in the first quarter for the Spurs with 12 points and 13 points in the second quarter, with eight rebounds and seven assists at end of the first half.
Starting lineup for the Heat were James, Wade, MIller, Bosh and Chalmers while the Spurs had Dunkin, Green, Leonard, Parker and Ginobili.
At the post game interview James, who made 32 points in the game said, "I gave my all tonight despite mistakes".
