Game 6 Optimism Thread!


OK, so this is the height of optimism... How can I be optimistic about the Knicks chances of winning a series that they have already lost 4 games of? Read on, my fellow MILPCATers, read on!

Norris Cole, being a halfway decent individual and maybe a little pissed at Coach Spo for not playing him very much in this series, goes to the league office with a bombshell - the Heat management installed special vibro-shakers in the rims at their arena which could be turned on or off automatically.

Simultaneously, a ref that worked the series in Miami admits that he was threatened by Heat players and told by Pat Riley himself that that if his calls were not quote-unquote "Fair" to LeBron that he would find himself in a very bad way due to some special "features" the Heat had installed in the ref's locker room.

The truth is, Stern turned a blind eye to these practices, but when it becomes public, he's forced to save face and declares the outcomes of games 1,2,and 5 null. The series is reset at one game apiece and games 1,2,and 5 are rescheduled at a thoroughly inspected AA arena. As rumors of a Lin return swirl, the Heat implore the league to make Lin ineligible, but the League declines their request. Nevertheless, Lin does not return for the replayed game one, which the Heat win by 20.

After a day off, the teams reconvene for game 2, and this time, the Knicks pull out a 5 point victory. The series is now knotted at 2 games apiece.

In the replayed game 5, with Lin suited up but on the bench, the Heat lead by 5-10 points throughout... but the Knicks in a flurry of steals and made 3 pointers make up the deficit and win on a Novak 3 off a pass from a triple teamed Melo.

For game 6, Lin announces he'll return and start. The Knicks clearly have the momentum. They're at home. MILPCAT is truly MILPCAT. We got this!
