FERRALL-A-VENT Wednesday June 19, 2013
Talk all you want about LeBron James taking over in the fourth quarter. You can talk about his triple double. You can talk about Ray Allen’s three that tied it at the end of regulation. You can talk about Chalmers’ big game where he had 20 in Game 6. But, it was all Bosh to me because Bosh not only got the rebound after the LeBron missed the three on the wing and kicked it off to Allen for the tying three at the end of regulation, but Bosh also blocked Danny Green’s three at the buzzer that would have tied it and sent it into double overtime. That’s two huge blocks and a huge rebound and kickout. Chris Bosh was the difference. Everybody says that he isn’t as huge as the others in the Big 3 Trifecta, but I thought Bosh stepped up in a huge way.
Now you’ve got Game 7 Thursday night for all the marbles where winner takes all. No road team has won it since 1978 in Game 7. The last time a team did it, it was the Bullets against the Sonics, and the two times previous to that it was the Celtics. In games on the road it’s just brutal for the road team and San Antonio had their chance. They had it by the throat, they were up five with 20 seconds left, but they couldn’t close the deal. They were ready to pop champagne bottles and the NBA was ready to hand them the hardware, but it just didn’t turn out the way they wanted. It has to be devastating for San Antonio. We’ll see if they can recover for Thursday night.
Tonight we got Game 4 of the Stanley Cup finals in Boston. If the Bruins win this game, they go up 3-1. It’s that simple. If they lose, then the series is even and they gotta go to Chicago for Game 5 where they could fall and then they’d be down 3-2 and have to come home for Game 6 and win just to stay alive. So the entire series hinges on this game tonight, it hinges on this Game 4. It should be awesome. We’re live at 10PM East, 7PM West on CBS Sports Radio, cbssportsradio.com and radio.com. (more…)
