2013 NBA Playoffs: Twitter Reacts to Heat-Pacers Game Seven

Well it’s game 7. Do or die. I write this post before the game even starts to sorry for what is really the lack of suspense. I grab the tweets as they come so it’s not like I watch the game and then hunt for highlights. Anyway, in game 7’s, the first six games really don’t matter. It’s like watching a football game in a sense. Anybody can win. Anything can happen. The stakes are so high. So let’s see what’s going on in the world of Twitter:

Hibbert is done — Andrew (@andrew_kingg) June 3, 2013

Just wanted to pause and mention how Twitter actually have combined the gay slur with his foul trouble. Quite a few tweets I saw said along the lines of “Take a seat on the bench, no homo”.

Why is it a blowout? Is this game 7 to the Pacers? They do know they bouta be at home on the couch right..
