Good News Spurs Fans!
Hey good news, everyone! The San Antonio Spurs are not the headcases that we are. After the game, they were exhausted. They were beaten. But they weren't crazy.
On REACT, I was not surprised how many Spurs fans said, "I just don't think I can watch Game 7. It's too much." Fortunately for fans, the Spurs have no idea what the heck you were talking about. Like, at all.
They are the mentally toughest team in the NBA. There is not a second team.
Looking at Game 7, there should be no discussion about the mentality of the Spurs. They have lost before. They have lost in these Finals. They have rebounded after every loss.
Meanwhile, the Heat have been a .500 team since the Eastern Conference Semifinals. They deserve a lot of credit for coming back in Game 6. But when the lights come back on for Game 7, the pressure (and questions of mentality) will all be on them.
The Spurs will keep calm and carry on. The only question is whether they have the legs under their sharp minds.
