The coals are getting hot!! #pitmaster#carolinastyle http://t.co/e5lKixZWjT
Also, Dwyane Wade is soooooo lucky Miami came back and won. He almost single-handedly cost them that game late in regulation.
Quick question: last Finals game that good was ... When?
Game 7 Thursday. Going to be so much fun. Fitting way to end this incredible season.
Other than the question about not fouling up three late. Predictably said that he doesn't.
These questions are so bad in this Popovich press conference. So horribly bad.
Manu Ginobili finished this game -16. 2-for-5, eight turnovers. Dwyane Wade finished this game -21.
And what a game. Pretty sure there's no way Game 7 can match it – likely will be a blowout. But one of the best games I've ever seen.
Regardless of calls, Spurs blew this one. Up five with 30 seconds left? Have to close it out. Two offensive rebounds, two missed FTs.
I need to take a shower after that game.
I don't like playing the referee game at all, but those are two huge no-calls.
Ridiculous game. The ultimate reality show.
Chris Bosh clobbered Danny Green.
Chris Bosh. Game 7. Fun.
Ginobili got fouled.
Obvious foul. That's the call Dwyane Wade got against the Mavericks in 2006.
Chris Bosh. Defensive plays.
That was a hilariously bad call by Ken Mauer, making up for my earlier tweet. Huge play by Green in transition on D once again.
Duncan 0-5 and hasn't scored since the end of the third quarter.

Missed free throws killing the Spurs.
To quote Thrift Shop: This is (bleeping) awesome.
Offensive rebounds folks. Offensive rebounds.
Regardless of how this one turns out, LeBron James has done what he was supposed to tonight. Incredible performance.
S/o t-Mac tho
Wade ruined LeBron's groove with that silly post up.
LeBron James. That's just a shame.
Let the bronny slander begin
LeBron has to shoot that. Can't try to make that pass there.
And LeBron went from having the ball every time down to Wade dominating it. Not a coincidence.
Greatest clutch performance from an innocent victim of a brawl between Drake and Chris Brown.
Tony Parker. Onions.
Two insane shots by Parker, but Heat have fallen apart offensively since Wade came back in. One horrible possession after another.
Bosh flopping again.
In Games 4 and 6, Ginobili is a combined -40.
Spurs are missing a ton of shots they normally make, including that Duncan miss. Might just be out of gas.
Mike Miller's shoe is upset that LeBron's headband is now the storyline.
Again: Spoelstra benched his star. Popovich should have done the same with Manu.
If Spurs go on to lose this one, those first three minutes of the fourth will haunt them for a long, long, long time.
This is that symbolic moment when LeBron sheds his headband, embraces his baldness, and takes over the game
Spoelstra has benched Wade here, already sitting Haslem. You have to question whether Popovich should do same with Manu. He's been awful.
Hard to think this one didn't just end, even with the score this close. Incredible sequence of events.
What a sequence by LeBron.
The best player in the world has shown up.
LeBron has no confidence in his jumper. They're begging him to shoot and he won't.
Two desperate teams. Love this.
No knees. One shoe. Who cares.
And that was about as bad a start to the fourth as San Antonio could have had. Just horrible defense.
Huge basket by Splitter.
Huge start, and a huge mistake by Ginobili. Can't leave Chalmers.
My prediction: first three minutes of fourth quarter (with Parker, Duncan on the bench) determine this game. If Spurs can maintain, they win
Here we go. Fourth quarter time.
Not saying it was wrong, but you knew the Heat were getting a call on a drive sometime soon.
And that was the most predictable call of all time.
Great job by Parker ensuring the 2-for-1 there.
Of course, as soon as I type that, LeBron pouts and gives up a bucket to Parker.
That no call on the Neal runner followed by the Battier 3-pointer could be the swing this game.
If the Heat shot as well as they complained, Miami sweep.
LeBron is having one of those games that's gonna haunt him until he wins another title.
The way Tim Duncan is running the floor at 37 is incredible.
Huge play by Kawhi Leonard. Pair of massive and-one fast break layups for him in this one.
Huge for Spurs to match Heat in the penalty. Needed that badly.
Mr. Whammy and his wife pictured in the NBA Cares About The Fans commercial.
Spurs are missing a ton of chippies. That could come back to bite them later on.
Heat already into the bonus less than five minutes into the third. That's a problem for San Antonio.
ABC reports we won't find out what happened with Wade at halftime until postgame. That should be interesting.
Doesn't look like Wade is on the bench. Are we going to get an update at some point?
When are Breen and Van Gundy going to notice Dwyane Wade isn't playing?
Where's Dwyane Wade?
I said after the first quarter it feels like what the Spurs are doing is more sustainable. Feel the same way after the second.
Is this when Bill Simmons makes a joke about Duncan going to a German doctor?
Vintage Tim Duncan tonight.
I stand corrected – that wasn't Ken Mauer. My thoughts on the call are the same, though.
That call on Duncan was about 15 seconds late, and terrible. Give me a break, Ken Mauer.
Jordan was 35 when he won his last title. Shaq was 34. Duncan is 37.
Take out the Spurs blowout in Game 3 and Splitter is -20 in this series. He's killed them every time Duncan has gone to the bench.
I know Splitter isn't this bad, but his minutes have killed San Antonio in this series.
That play that freed up Green has worked so many times in this series. So simple, so effective.
Incredible first quarter both ways, but feels like what the Spurs did is more sustainable – Miami went 4-for-6 from 3-point range.
Shane Battier doesn't play basketball. He flops and annoys.
Bank of Battier
I'm impressed – Spoelstra is benching Udonis Haslem to get Chris Andersen back in the rotation. Didn't think he'd do it.
