MIAMI (AP) — Ray Allen lost his record in these NBA Finals. He still has a chance at what he wants most: A second championship.
It's why he came to Miami.
And on the final Heat possession of regulation of Game 6, he did what he does better than anyone in NBA history, hit 3-pointers.
Allen's 3 with 5.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter capped a huge Miami rally, and the Heat found a way in overtime to hold off the San Antonio Spurs for a 103-100 win.
So the 2013 NBA championship comes down to one game: Winner take all, Game 7, Thursday night. And without the guard who Miami talked out of taking more money from Boston last summer and luring him to South Florida instead, the Heat might not have gotten there.
