Five things to take away from the San Antonio Spurs’ 113-77 win over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night:
Danny Green made seven of the San Antonio Spurs’ finals-record 16 3-pointers, Tim Duncan had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and the Spurs clobbered the Miami Heat 113-77 on Tuesday night to take 2-1 lead in the series.
The Heat changed things up, and now it is time for Gregg Popovich to adjust. Is there anyone else you would want in that film room and on the practice floor figuring out how to counter those moves more than Popovich?
After mauling the San Antonio Spurs in Game 2 of the 2013 NBA Finals, the Miami Heat will look to take a 2-1 lead in the series Tuesday night during Game 3 at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.
Six years later, the San Antonio Spurs still have that winning NBA Finals formula of good defense and a little luck on offense.
Tony Parker banked in a 16-footer with 5.2 seconds left for the last of his 21 points and the San Antonio Spurs stunned the Miami Heat 92-88 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
All in all, this should be a very exciting and competitive series. San Antonio will likely have to win two games in Miami to win the series. It’s a tall order, but if any team can win a Game 7 in Miami, it’s a veteran team like the Spurs.

The confident aura the Golden State Warriors are giving off right now might be the only thing brighter than those yellow shirts every home fan is expected to be wearing again for Game 3 against the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night at ear-piercing Oracle Arena.
Carmelo Anthony has undoubtedly been the “Best Knick in a Leading Role” all season. But he’s not doing it alone.
The Nets will continue to be looking up at teams like the Spurs from echelons below. For now, I will look to be comforted by the Devils, a warm blanket of consistency in New York’s volatile sports landscape.
