The San Antonio Spurs won the 2014 NBA Championship on Sunday with their third straight win over the Miami Heat. The final score of game five was 104-87.
The game started with the Heat on fire and it fueled a 22-6 lead for the team. Miami played solid defense all while moving the ball tremendously on offense. LeBron James especially was hot as he seemingly scored at will and picked up rebound after rebound.
The Spurs would mount a comeback however and turn a 16-point deficit into an 8-point lead during the second quarter. San Antonio held Miami without a field goal for nearly seven minutes during the quarter.
James played nearly the entire half and finished it with 20 points, 8 rebounds and 1 assist. The story however was the rest of his teammates who combined for only 20 of their own. Chris Bosh was especially poor going 2-6 and missing all 3 of his three-point attempts.
The score at the half was 47-40 Spurs.
The third quarter continued what the Spurs started in the second. On both sides of the ball, San Antonio took over the game and extended their lead. At one point, the Spurs were on a 59-22 run dating back to the first half.
The Heat went over four minutes into the second half before scoring a point. It took until more than the midway point of the quarter for the Heat to score again. Even after that, San Antonio just continued to pile on.
James finished the game with 31 points, 10 rebounds and 5 assists. Bosh had 13 points while Wade had only 11 points of his own in another disappointing effort.
