In a dramatic finish, the Miami Heat clinched a 103-100 victory over the San Antonio Spurs to tie the series, forcing a do-or-die Game 7 for both teams. 

The Spurs were leading in the fourth quarter, and after LeBron James failed to tie the score in the final seconds, Ray Allen followed through with a 3-pointer at the buzzer that forced the game into overtime. 

"It's by far the best game I've ever been a part of," James said to ESPN.

James finished with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists. Tim Duncan scored 30 points and 17 rebounds for the Spurs.

Game 7 of the NBA Finals will kick off Thursday at 9:00 p.m. EST at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
