LeBron headband is abandoned in Game 6, but the Miami Heat, led by a James triple-double, erased a 10-point third quarter deficit to defeat the San Antonio Spurs in overtime Tuesday night. Who knows if LeBron headband returns for Game 7 of the NBA Finals?
A high-arcing, game-tying 3-point shot from deep in the corner by Ray Allen with just over five seconds remaining in regulation capped off an epic fourth quarter comeback that lifted the Miami Heat to a 103-100 overtime victory over the San Antonio Spurs Tuesday night at American Airlines Arena. The Heat have now evened their Finals series with the Spurs at three games apiece and face the Spurs in a deciding Game 7 Thursday night.
LeBron James sparked the fourth quarter rally, losing his “Slick Watts”-inspired headband in the process. It was arguably the most physical James has played in any 12 minute stretch, and prompted him at the game’s conclusion to remark “It’s by far the best game I’ve ever been a part of.” As a result of his efforts, James notched yet another remarkable triple-double, with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists.
