ABC Again Wins The Night With A 10.6 Overnight For Spurs' Rout Of Heat In Game 4
Published June 13, 2014
PARADISE LOST? In Ft. Lauderdale, Ben Crandell notes virtually no members of the national media would "actually admit to rooting" for a Heat win Thursday night, which would have guaranteed a "return to the alluring embrace of South Beach" for Game 6. But FS1's Colleen Dominguez said, "I root for location. Absolutely. ... At the beginning of the season when everyone was saying this was going to be the Pacers' year, I almost cried. ... We all root for location." ESPN's Chris Broussard indicated that the NBA going back to a 2-2-1-1-1 format for the Finals "was unpopular, because the old format allowed for more time in Miami the last few years." Crandell notes media members from ESPN, Fox and TNT on Wednesday night got together at South Beach restaurant Prime 112 "for a long dinner that Dominguez said has become an NBA Finals tradition" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 6/13).
