Ray Allen made a clutch 3-pointer near the end of regulation.
Miami, FL (Sports Network) -
Ray Allen resurrected the Heat with a clutch 3- pointer near the end of regulation, and Miami did just enough in overtime to force a winner-take-all Game 7 in the NBA Finals.
The instant classic at American Airlines Arena ended with Chris Bosh blocking Danny Green's 3-point attempt to seal the Heat's 103-100 victory and deny the San Antonio Spurs a fifth championship.
The Spurs wasted a 13-point second half lead and were ahead by five with 28.2 seconds left in regulation before LeBron James and Allen each connected from long range to send Game 6 to an extra session.
James scored the go-ahead bucket in OT and finished with his second triple- double of the series with 32 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds.
Spurs have no one to blame but themselves

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) -
The San Antonio Spurs had one hand on the Larry O'Brien Trophy Tuesday night.
The other hand should've been on either a defensive rebound, or in LeBron James' or Ray Allen's face.
Up five with 28.2 seconds left in regulation, the Spurs couldn't corral a defensive rebound. James buried a three, Allen followed suit. The Miami Heat won in overtime.
Now, the Spurs have to beat the Heat, in South Beach for a Game 7, gutted, gassed and grieving.
