Game 6 of the NBA Finals between Miami Heat and the LA Lakers is already underway. After missing out on the chance to close out the series on Friday night, the LA Lakers will have one more opportunity to do so against the resilient Jimmy Butler and his crew.

In this article, we'll take a look at the latest reactions to Green's miss, along with other NBA news updates.

Danny Green missed a wide-open 3 when the LA Lakers were trailing by 1 point with less than 10 seconds left in Game 5. This caused a lot of outrage among the fans and it, unfortunately, went too far as Green and his fiancee ended up getting death threats after the game.

Speaking about this unfortunate turn of events, NBA Experts Mark Jackson and Jeff Van Gundy gave their opinions on the matter before Game 6. Jackson said he was embarrassed by the way the LA Lakers fans reacted to the incident and added:

"We're better than that as a people. It's just basketball."

Former Houston Rockets coach Jeff Van Gundy was distraught about the whole situation and reacted to Mark Jackson's comments by saying:

"I'm not sure we are better than that."

Irrespective of what happens in the rest of the series, LA Lakers fans should realize that it is, after all, just a game and that they should respect players and their personal lives irrespective of their on-court performances.
