For both teams, it all came down to the last 1 minute of the
Game 7. Cavaliers were looking for their first win and Warriors were trying to
save their record setting season with a second championship.
In the last 1 minute, when scores were tied and both teams had stepped
up their defense which resulted in no score on both end for almost 3 minutes.
Then came the tie breaker and also a game winner. It came in
the form of a 3 pointer. For a change, this time it came from a player who was wearing a Cavaliers
Kyrie Irving - He was fearless, off balanced but still made a tough shot.
This shot is for the books and the history. This is the shot that will silence his
critics forever. This is what Kyrie is all about, not a ball hog or trying avoid
passing the ball. He was told by his
coach to attack and it is what gave him that confidence on the big stage on a
big night. He just delivered a dagger.
LeBron James - He was
relentless in all his efforts! He almost had a bad night with costly turnovers
but he kept playing like a real warrior.
His block on Iggy was classic.
J R Smith came alive a little late but he drained two crucial 3
pointers to erase the Golden State’s lead.
When clock was running below 30 seconds, Love’s defense made
Curry very restless which forced him to take a contested shot which he
eventually missed. He missed it when it mattered the most sealing GSW’s
Draymond Green played well on both ends getting pen shots
and forcing Cavaliers to make mistakes on the other end. For most of the game,
Splash Brothers were on MIA (Missing in Action) list.
