Today, when everyone thought that the Lakers would wear the black Mamba jersey that had previously maintained a complete victory to win the G5 victory, thereby eliminating the opponent 4-1 again and winning the championship, what they did not expect was that the Heat came back against the wind. They relied on Butler's burst and Hilo's key two free throws when they were reversed in the final quarter, defeating the Lakers 111-108, breaking the record of the Black Mamba's overall victory. At the same time, all fans and media who had been optimistic about the Lakers G5 harvest series were beaten, and the two sides still have G6. When the Heat wear a black jersey, the Lakers cannot temporarily change to a black Mamba jersey.
A key point of the Lakers' loss in this game was that the game was nine seconds left. At that time, the thick eyebrow brother limped, Butler and James scored consecutive hero goals, and the score rose alternately. The Lakers trailed by 1 point. James passed the pass after the breakthrough, which was very good to Danny Green, who was open. Unexpectedly, the last season's championship winner actually missed the shot. This was the mistake of Morris later. With Hilo's two free throws, James's buzzer was unsuccessful and the Lakers lost the game.
After the game, Lakers fans gritted their teeth with hatred for Danny Green’s missed shot, but this situation is what the league wants to see, because Green missed a key ball, making this series enter G6. One more game in the finals and the surge in suspense has increased the attention of the outside world to this game, which is very good for stimulating ratings.
You must know that the ratings of this season's NBA Finals are the worst in history. There is no one. Among them, the ratings of the finals G1 is 7.41 million, G2's 4.5 million and G3's 4.08 million are the first national broadcasts in the history of the finals. The number of viewers fell below 50 million, and G4’s 7.54 million rebounded, but it was still the lowest ratings in history for the previous finals this year.
So if the Lakers really win the 4-1 championship, then the series lacks suspense, even if it is the first title of James West and Howard the thick eyebrows, it is still not surprising, natural attention and ratings are very low. Now the Heat have won two victories in the last three games, which also makes the outside world hope to see Butler lead the team to perform the miracle of James in 2016, that is, to achieve 4-3 under the circumstance of being 1-3 behind. After the turnaround, it now seems that the criticality of G6 is self-evident.
Therefore, playing a few more games in the Finals and the sudden increase in suspense is good for the high ratings that the league hopes to see. Some neutral fans will also have more expectations for this series.
