The San Antonio Spurs defeated the Miami Heat 114-104 in Game Five of the 2013 NBA Finals to take a 3-2 series lead in the best of seven series.
The Spurs were excellent on offense shooting 60 percent from the field for the entire game. San Antonio was led by 26 points from Tony Parker, complemented by 24 points a piece coming from Danny Green and Manu Ginobili. Green also set the record for the most three-pointers made in an NBA Finals series (25). Green is shooting a blistering 66 percent from beyond the arc.
Miami was led by 25 points from both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. Outside of those two, Chris Bosh (16 points), and Ray Allen (21 points), Miami struggled to get much from their supporting cast. The Heat are going to need some monster performances and reflection on their decision to start Mike Miller leading up to Tuesday's elimination game in Miami. Can the Heat stay alive?
"Gotta tip my cap to Danny Green. This dude deserves a ring and that Finals MVP trophy. *cues the soundtrack*"
