Sometimes, all right - a lot of the time, I think sports commentators in print, on radio, television or the internet have it easy. Take a read at the below example and decide for yourself if you could come up with all of this, well - yourself.
BEFORE THE SERIES BEGINS
San Antonio has the better team but Miami has the best player on the planet. Miami will win the series.
Miami needs to steel a game in San Antonio or they could be in real trouble going back to Miami for Game 3 and Game 4.
GAME ONE SCORE: Miami 95 San Antonio 110
San Antonio is really hard to beat at home. The air conditioning went out and Lebron cramped up and could not play .
We don’t want to say this is a must-win for Miami in Game Two, but this is a must win-game for Miami. LeBron James had better have a great game and carry the team.
GAME TWO SCORE: Miami 98 San Antonio 96
What a big win for Miami because San Antonio is so difficult to beat at home. LeBron James showed why he is the best player in the galaxy.
San Antonio had better win this game because they don’t want to fall behind Miami potentially 3 games to 1 going back to San Antonio for Game 5.
GAME THREE SCORE: San Antonio 111 Miami 92
San Antonio put this game away in the First Half. Miami just doesn’t have the team to compete. Lebron James needs some help out there even though he is the best player in the universe.
This is a must-win for Miami. Miami doesn’t want to go back to San Antonio down 3 games to 1. Miami has not lost two straight playoff games in forever. Miami is trying to get Carmello Anthony to come to Miami next year because he needs the help even though he is the best player in the galaxy and plays on a team with two perennial all-stars.
GAME FOUR SCORE: San Antonio 107 Miami 86
Miami just doesn’t have the team to compete with San Antonio. Perennial all-stars Dwayne Wade and Chis Bosh are either aging, tired, disinterested, hurt or all four. Lebron James needs help even if he is the best player in the world.
Miami has the best player in the galaxy in LeBron James. If he wants to etch his name into history he can do so now by putting his team on his back and carrying them to a win. If Miami wins this game the series goes back to Miami for Game Six. Miami can easily win in Miami in front of their fans with their backs against the wall. Close-out games are extremely difficult to win especially if you are trying to close-out the two-time defending champions who have the best player in the galaxy on their side.
