The 2013 NBA Finals have been quite the roller coaster ride for Mitchell's Mike Miller. Tonight the series, and possibly Miller's career, comes to an end with Game 7.
Though injuries have nagged Miller throughout his 13th NBA season, Mike says the time off has him healthier than he's been at any point of the year.
It's shown in the Finals where Miller has become a starter and is shooting 11-of-14 from three point range. Whether it's his final game in the NBA remains to be seen, but if Miller and the Heat are going to take their second consecutive NBA Championship, Mike says we saw the blueprint for victory in Game 6.
"For us it was about, you know, doing one thing and that was taking away their shooting. They've done an unbelievable job making shots. Didn't let their shooters get going, really similar to what they're doing to us sometimes, you know, making guys make long two point jump shots. And our job now is to close them out. " Miller says.
