What an incredible game. Maybe not the best Game 7 in terms of level of play, but probably the most thrilling one I can remember since the Bulls final Championship win over the Jazz.
Every time GS sank a three, I thought it was going to get away from Cleveland, but they just hung around and kept on punching back. And how fitting that a series of lopsided wins ended with a game that was so tight the whole way through? And the drama of the last 30 seconds, where each team made crucial mistakes, then Cleveland's final possession, where James, who never gets hurt, goes down hard -- from the looks of it I thought he might've fractured his hand -- and then having to shoot those free throws to make it a two possession game; misses the first with that bum hand, but then ices the second.
Despite the triple double LeBron didn't even have that great of a game offensively (I think he was under 40% FGP), but this was ultimately a slug fest where the last man standing was going to win. Just think of what his assist numbers would be if his teammates had actually made the shots they were supposed to?
I'm really happy for the city of Cleveland.
And Cleveland +4, so I was only 1 point off.
