It will be known as the LeBron James Headband Game.
Five things to watch for in Game 6 of the NBA Finals, as the San Antonio Spurs try to clinch their fifth title and end the Miami Heat’s reign on Tuesday night:
The Spurs have long been the NBA’s gold standard when it comes to drafting and development, preferring to roll up their sleeves and scour the globe to find the right players to slot into well-defined roles in San Antonio.
A little more than a year ago, the Miami Heat stood on the verge of elimination in the Eastern Conference Finals. The team’s heart and the ability of the Big Three were being questioned left and right ahead of Game 6 of the Conference Finals.
The Miami Heat dug themselves a hole when they allowed the San Antonio Spurs to go up 3-2 in the 2013 NBA Finals. Heading into Game 6, the Heat face long odds of just getting to Game 7, much less winning the NBA championship.
They lost three times in three months in one of the most overpowering stretches the NBA has ever seen.
Bryan Bickell scored a go-ahead goal early in the third period and the Chicago Blackhawks held on to beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-3 in Game 6 on Monday night.
Despite being in a 3-2 hole against the Chicago Bulls, the Brooklyn Nets insist they are the team to beat in this best-of-seven series.
Watching the Devils attempt to become the first team in seven decades to come back from a 3-0 deficit in the Stanley Cup final is causing Glenn “Chico” Resch to have flashbacks.
With Game 6 of the Rangers-Devils series at the Rock on Friday, Jerry decided to take-7 year-old Matthew and 2-year-old Joseph to see the action in person.
Eighteen years ago, Mark Messier set the stage for one of sports’ most dramatic moments. Suddenly-fiery Devils coach Peter DeBoer almost went there, too.
Doesn’t it feel eerily like 1994? Look who’s waiting once again in the Eastern Conference finals — Martin Brodeur and the Devils.
The house will be loud and ready to go Thursday at MSG. I would expect the Rangers to be the same.
It comes down to this. The top-seeded Rangers on the brink of elimination, needing two straight wins to keep their Stanley Cup hopes alive.
Hours after David Freese’s home run plunked down on the grass patch beyond the center field wall, a message still burned bright: “See you TOMORROW NIGHT for Game 7 of the World Series!”
