The Miami Heat Even Up the NBA Finals with a 103-84 Win Over the San Antonio Spurs
The San Antonio Spurs have relied heavily on the production of veterans Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili in there many playoff runs. Their productivity or lack of productivity may end up being the difference in these NBA Finals though. Sunday night they were defiantly on the lack of production side as the Spurs lost 103-84.
Ginobili and Duncan combined for just 15 points on 5-19 shooting from the field and Manu had three costly turnovers that helped the Heat run away with the victory. Danny Green was the lone bright spot for San Antonio as he had 17 points on 6-6 shooting. Five of those six shots were from three-point distance as he was the high point man for the Spurs.
Mario Chalmers, Ray Allen, and Mike Miller played crucial minutes in Sunday's win for Miami as they combined for 41 points while going 14-23 from the floor, eight of those being from three-point range. LeBron James had another solid game, 17 points, 8 rebounds, and 7 assists, but his biggest contribution was again on the defensive end. James (Pictured on the Left) had a huge block on Spurs forward Tiago Splitter that helped propel the Heat to a 33-5 run to put the game out of reach.
The series now shifts back to San Antonio as the Spurs will look to feed off of their home court crowd and take back the lead in the NBA Finals. Game three is set for Tuesday night with tip-off coming at 8:00 pm on ABC from the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
