Lebron’s Legacy Will Continue to Be Debated Through Game Seven

NBA Finals – Game 7 San Antonio Spurs at Miami Heat PicksThe Miami Heat came within seconds of losing in the NBA Finals betting for the second time in three years, and regardless of the many reasons why, the way that game six could have ended it would have all been on Lebron James. After all, it was Lebron that started the game just 3-for-12 from the floor. It was Lebron that failed to take over the game the way so many sports betting experts figured that he would. It was Lebron that missed the potential game-tying three-point shot that ended up in the hands of Chris Bosh, who kicked it out to Ray Allen for the three-point shot that sent the game to overtime. Lebron’s entire image was saved for the moment by that shot, which will become nothing more than prelude to game seven against the San Antonio Spurs Thursday.

Whether or not the Spurs are able to rebound from such a devastating loss after having an NBA championship ripped from their hands will become a secondary storyline heading in to game seven. All of the focus is on Lebron and this Miami team, and whether or not they can defend their title and truly live up to all of the price per head expectations.

NBA Betting Preview: San Antonio Spurs

San Antonio did so many things right in the first three quarters of game six that it was almost a crime that they had it stolen from them in the end. The Spurs had defended Miami well the entire game, and got brilliant performances from Tim Duncan, Kawhi Leonard, and Tony Parker at both ends of the floor. That trio combined for 71 points and spent most of the night guarding Lebron, but this time it was the bench that let San Antonio down. Danny Green was just 1-for-7 from the field for three points, while Manu Ginobili came back down to earth in a big way with just nine points on 2-of-5 shooting.

The fact that Lebron started so slow didn’t seem to matter nearly as much when he finished with 32 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists, which seemed to be all anyone wanted to talk about the following morning. Bosh had just 10 points and 11 rebounds and Dwyane Wade had 14 points and four assists, but the bottom line was that the Heat won and would live to see another day. Miami can’t afford another slow live betting start in game seven, and it will be on the Big Three to respond. They looked unstoppable in game four and then down the stretch in game six, but it has become difficult to predict which team will show up on a game-to-game basis.

NBA Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The stage is set for the Heat to break through, the Big Three to win a second-straight title, and Lebron to finish off his fourth MVP season with another playoff MVP award, and it will be interesting to see if they take advantage. Miami has all of the momentum after rewriting the history books late in game six, and now all of the pressure is on the Spurs as they attempt to respond.
