San Antonio Spurs
Kawhi Leonard had 20 points and 14 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs dominated the Miami Heat again in a 107-86 victory Thursday night to take a commanding 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals.
The Heat were losing, apparently, because Mario Chalmers wasn’t playing well. Huh? That is completely missing the true narrative of this series: The Miami Heat can’t stop the Spurs from scoring.
The San Antonio Spurs made 19 of their first 21 shots and hit 75.8 percent in the best-shooting half in NBA Finals history, and went on in the second half to cream the Miami Heat.
With their superstar making it to the finish this time, the Miami Heat won Game 2, just as they always do when they drop an opener.
The shark has officially been jumped with LeBron James. People have lost their damn minds. For anyone to question James’ toughness or heart after Thursday night’s game are clueless, lost, dishonest, and idiotic.
The Spurs beat the Heat. Miami couldn’t beat the heat. And there was the story of Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Tim Duncan had 21 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Miami Heat 110-95 on Thursday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals inside a sweltering AT&T Center.
It doesn’t get any better than the Heat and Spurs in the 2014 NBA Finals. Here are the only acceptable excuses for missing it.
In a rematch of last years final which went 7 games, the San Antonio Spurs square off against the Miami Heat and Tony Parker and company hope to prevent LeBron and the Heat from winning their third consecutive NBA championship.
Unless Wade and James both play to a star’s level, and they find some help from the supporting cast, I think the Spurs win a hotly contested seven-games series. Spurs in seven.
I don’t believe in Deron Williams, but the Nets will still manage two wins. Heat in six. As for the rest of the matchups…
With the NBA playoffs starting, we look back on the top moments in NBA playoff history.
Alan Anderson scored 19 of his 22 points in the second half, helping the Brooklyn Nets pull away from the short-handed San Antonio Spurs for a 103-89 victory Thursday night.
Parker (lower back) left Wednesday night’s game against Washington at halftime and did not return. The Spurs said the 37-year-old Duncan will miss the Nets game to rest after playing 40 minutes, his season high.
Amare Stoudemire added 11 points and Beno Udrih and Andrea Bargnani had 10 each for New York (10-21), which snapped a three-game skid.
