San Antonio Spurs
In a NBA Finals featuring multiple first-ballot future Hall of Famers, the story of the series has been the phenomenal play of the role players for the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat.
The Miami Heat made their way into a hostile AT&T Center for Game 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals and quickly ran into a massive mauling at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs, 113-77.
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.
It’s rare, but the Miami Heat does lose an occasional game or two. They just don’t do it in consecutive games, at least not for the last six months. And when the Heat does respond to the loss, it’s usually in an overwhelming manner.
LeBron James overcame a terrible start to finish with 17 points, eight rebounds and seven assists and the Miami Heat rolled to a 103-84 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night to even the series at a game apiece.
In every NBA Finals, there’s often a play that people will never forget. Michael Jordan’s push-off jump shot against the Utah Jazz is one people still remember. Sunday night gave NBA fans another one of those unforgettable moments courtesy of Miami Heat superstar LeBron James.
Tiago Splitter, why don’t you just take a seat for a little while?
Back with a blowout, and, no, the Miami Heat didn’t need to lean on LeBron to get it. Not when Mario Chalmers and everyone else came through.
Six years later, the San Antonio Spurs still have that winning NBA Finals formula of good defense and a little luck on offense.
If anyone can stand in the way of LeBron James and the Miami Heat winning their second-straight NBA title, it’s Tony Parker and the San Antonio Spurs.

Four victories. That’s all that separates the San Antonio Spurs from furthering its dynasty, or the Miami Heat from an elite place in history.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat are off the NBA Finals for the third straight season, with their series against the San Antonio Spurs set to get underway on Thursday. SI’s Ian Thomsen joined Toucher & Rich on Tuesday to discuss the series, and shoot down a Ray Allen rumor.
It may seem as if the San Antonio Spurs are playing for an NBA title every year. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker know only too well how very long it’s been since their last chance.
Tim Duncan had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and the San Antonio Spurs beat the Chicago Bulls 101-83 on Wednesday night in a matchup of teams missing their starting All-Star point guards.
Kevin Durant had 34 points and 14 rebounds while playing all of regulation for the first time all season, and the Oklahoma City Thunder claimed a spot in the NBA finals by beating the San Antonio Spurs 107-99 on Wednesday night.
Once Kevin Durant got going, the San Antonio Spurs couldn’t find a way to slow him down.
Tony Parker scored 34 points, Manu Ginobili added 20 and the San Antonio Spurs stayed perfect in the playoffs with a 120-111 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals on Tuesday night.
The Spurs don’t play the “money and me” game, and they certainly don’t care for super egos running the team. They never have and they seemingly never will.
