YOU NEED A very good reason to stay up half the night on a Thursday — but if there was ever a reason to do it, NBA Finals Game 7 is it.
Tonight at an eye-watering 2am Irish time, the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs go head to head to decide this year’s NBA Championship series. If it’s anything like Game 6 on Wednesday night, this could be one of the all-time greats.
But who is it gonna be? Can the Heat’s “Big Three” of LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh guide them to back-to-back titles? Or will tonight be the night for Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and company to extend the Spurs’ proud record of never having lost a Finals Game 7?
There has been nothing to choose between the two teams so far and genuinely, tonight could go either way.
If you’re on the fence about whether or not to stay up into the wee hours, the highlight reel from Wednesday night should help make up your mind:
