Update: Heat forward Chris Bosh had a message today for the fans who left game 6 early:

Celtics fans were likely annoyed that it was a clutch 3-pointer from Ray Allen that sent the Miami Heat into overtime against the San Antonio Spurs last night on the way to a series saving victory, but it might make them feel better to know plenty of Heat fans didn't even see it. With 30 seconds left and the Heat down by 5, some fans gave up on their team and headed to the exits. The Heat came back and won the game, and the fans rushed back to the arena only to be turned away by security.

In the last 15 years of the NBA playoffs, teams have won 98.6 percent of the time when leading by five points with between 20 and 30 seconds left, according to ESPN. These "fans" missed out on the incredible 1.4 percent to...beat traffic?
