Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker were devastated after they blew a 10-point lead to begin the fourth quarter and a five-point lead with 28 seconds remaining in regulation in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday. Their 103-100 overtime loss to the Heat prolonged the series to a pivotal Game 7, and Miami now has all the momentum.
In their postgame news conferences, the Spurs looked like a team that knew it should not be playing anymore. They were dressed in button-down shirts and slacks when they really should have been wearing champagne-soaked T-shirts. For the most part, they did not even try to downplay how disappointed they were. Their facial expressions would have given them away if they had tried to lie anyway.
