The Spurs are at home and I really believe that Duncan will have a great game and Horry will step up with some big 3s as well. The major thing is that the Spurs have to force some turnovers. In games 4 and 6 the Pistons had less than 5 turnovers while the Spurs were over 10 each time.
Last year during the ALCS (sox vs. yanks) It was 3-0. I still had hope we could win.
All we needed to do was win 1 game (game 4). Then we had Pedro (at home) and Curt. Then it came down to one game. Sure, I didn't believe it would play out that way o questions asked, but there was still some hope.
3-3, and one game left. Anything can happen. It didn't matter who won what games, it mattered that there was one game left.
No stats, no records, no "it's never happened before", just win once...
Exactly. What's done is done. I hate the "it's never happened before, and even though they're just one game from it happening, it's not happening now" argument.
I'd note that last year, after winning the first 2 at home, people pointed out that no team in NBA finals history had ever won the middle three games at home. The power of history was so great that the Pistons stomped the Lakers in game 5 in a game that wasn't even remotely as close as the 100-87 score indicated.
