Through the first three quarters of the game,LeBron James was almost non-exsistent, shooting 3-11 from the field, while scoring a mere 14 points. With his legacy and the championship on the line, LeBron James came in clutch in the fourth quarter, scoring more points in that one quarter (18), than he did during the first three. After shooting 8-14 in the fourth, LeBron had finally arrived. It took 6 games and three quarters, but the chosen one finally decided to play the game of basketball at a high level.More importantly though, Chris Bosh and Ray Allen, and the rest of the supporting cast finally stepped up as well. When Ray Allen hit the corner three, the American Airlines Arena was going absolutely crazy. Ray Allen might just go down as one of the most clutch players in history, just off of his shot. That is why he wanted to come to Miami and thats why Miami welcomed the greatest 3-point shooter of all time with open arms. Not to go unmentioned, Chris Bosh finally was Chris Bosh in the closing minutes of the game. Grabbing hard offensive rebounds, blocking shots and stealing the ball, Bosh finally
showed why he is not only one of the most important pieces to this team, but one of the best players in the game.

With game 7 being tomorrow, it is important that everyone gets their much needed rest tonight. This series has easily been one of the best seven game series in the history of sports. Tomorrow night will be an epic night. After last nights comeback performance, I expect the real Miami Heat to show up. The ones that dont need to worry about coming back from a deficit, but instead the ones that blow teams out of the water night in and night out. Although this series isnt one of momentum, I believe that the Heat will be able to carry over their game 6 performance and win game 7 by a good margain. It might not be a huge blowout win like game 5 last season, but a 10-12 point win is what I am predicting, with LeBron receiving the Finals Most Valuable Player award, yet again.
