Spurs' Broken A/C Cramps Up LeBron, Beats the Heat in Game One

Categories: Sports

Both teams tried to "beat the Heat" last night. Only one succeeded.

The Heat dropped game one of the NBA Finals 110-95 in a matchup where Miami lost its biggest star, LeBron James, midway through the fourth quarter due to cramps that flared up for one reason: the Spurs' A/C blew out early in the contest, and temps rocketed to more than 90 degrees on the floor. Muy caliente! The A/C couldn't have picked a worse time to quit life, and unfortunately that will be the story line today, when in reality it should have been an alternative ending to what was a fantastically played first game in this series.

Before LeBron was forced to leave the game, the Heat held a seven-point lead and looked poised to steal home-court advantage; then things fell off the side of a cliff. After LeBron left, the Heat was outscored 33-9, making what was an excellent game for 40 minutes look like a complete blowout on paper.

Overall, Heat fans have to feel good about what they saw for much of the night. With LeBron on the floor, the game was there for the taking until things beyond their control came into play. LeBron was able to score 25 points in the 33 minutes he was on the floor, and was able to get to the basket on numerous occasions, something that didn't occur until game five in last year's finals.

The Spurs had better luck and dealt with the situation better, so they'll take the 1-0 lead into Sunday's game two.

And now some tweets related to an A/C shitting the bed in the biggest game of the NBA season. What is life.

Queen LBJ will blame tomorrow when the Heat lose that the arena lights were too bright and that was the reason for his air balls. I hope the Spurs sweep these a-holes.

No, because unlike the punks out west, our A/C is top notch and we don't have to deal with "electrical glitches" that make an NBA Finals game hot as a sauna!! We probably would've had like 20 guys attending the games that could've fixed it.

You can't compare Miami weather to being locked in a giant sauna with no choice.

All of you lame ass ppl saying Lebrons a big baby, you try playing in a closed arena with no a/c and see how it feels, and he is a better player then you will ever be and the Spurs got lucky and that game was fixed dirty asses is what I say

A closed in building and indoor heat is not a good environment to move around in. It drains you of energy

Couldn't have been the AC that cramped him up. It was probably the 763 commercial breaks and the other 89 time outs.

No, this isn't the first time! Why wasn't he hydrating? They should've stuck him with an IV at the first sign!

OK again out of all players it was lebron. Again. Again. It's always him with the excuse. Stop blaming the ac. How ironic the Miami Heat couldn't take real heat. Spurs

You can't help how your body reacts to certain circumstances. I'd like to see some of these bozos play with full leg cramps. Pain is unbearable. However the Heat threw away the game without Lebron. No reason the Spurs should've gone on the streak they did in the last 4 min.
