The Spurs expanded their lead to 94-89 after two Heat turnovers turned into three Spurs free throw makes. James cut the lead to 2 with a three-pointer, then after Kawhi Leonard missed one of two free throws, the Heat had one last chance. A James miss from three-point range was rebounded by Chris Bosh, who tipped the ball to Allen. The best three-point shooter in NBA history hit from the corner with 5.1 seconds left to force overtime.

The Miami Heat entered Game 6 of the NBA Finals with a simple goal: win or see their championship defense end in disappointment. Leading the series 3-2, the San Antonio Spurs could clinch their fifth title in franchise history with a victory.

The Heat trailed by as many as 13 points in the second half, but came alive in the fourth quarter. Midway through the quarter, James blocked a Duncan layup and followed it up on the other end with a lay-in of his own around Duncan to tie the game at 82.

Allen stares down the court after making his shot. San Antonio's Danny Green broke his record for most 3-pointers in a Finals, but Allen's will be remembered as bigger than any of them.
