I don’t think a lot of words from me are necessary. When the Miami Heat raced out to a 22-6 lead with a bit more than five minutes left in the opening quarter, the game situation had a flavor that seemed so very different, and almost foreign when compared to the taste of the previous two games when the San Antonio Spurs had dominated from the jump.
But it would all change. With a bit more than five minutes left in the third period, which was actually two full quarters from that moment in the 1st stanza, the Spurs had demolished the Heat to the tune of 59-22 over that span. The game and the series was all but over.
Yes, by the time the final buzzer sounded, words weren’t necessary. The faces of the victors were filled with joy. And for the Heat, their summer vacations began far earlier than expected. But some folks did have some things to say.

You showed the world how beautiful this game is.
