Even though they let game 1 slip through their hands, the Heat stole home court in game 2. The Spurs in game one had 23 turnovers but still manage to win by double digits with a 31-9 run in the 4th quarter. The Spurs got lucky after that first game and this time it was the Heat who got lucky. Spurs seemed to be in control during the 1st half but lost it in the final minutes of the game with a couple turnovers and bad defense. LeBron James came through in the 3rd quarter, scoring 14 points with all pull up jumpers. Bronny finished with 35 points and 10 rebounds and was mainly in the post. This is exactly what Bronny needed to do to make up for leaving game one with cramps. As the best player in the world, I don't expect cramps to be what stop you, especially in the NBA Finals, it's not acceptable. But like great players do, he followed up with a dominant performance, which is all I wanted to see from him.
This is the first time I have ever seen Manny Machado angry on the baseball diamond. Usually Machado is the quiet, laid back, subtle player that just makes plays but the A's bought something out of him. Friday Night, Machado and A's 3rd baseman, Josh Donaldson, got into a riff because Donaldson was very forceful on his tag that knocked Machado over. Machado then got up in Donaldson face and the two shared words, we thought it would be over there. As you can see in the video, that riff carried over into Sunday's game. Even in a 10-0 spanking, I'm glad to see that the O's still will show some emotion. The next O's - A's series will be very chippy.
