MIAMI, Fla. – The Spurs head to Miami to take on the Heat for Game 3 of the NBA finals. Heat won the last game at San Antonio on Sunday, tying the best of seven series at 1-1.
During Game 1, the AT&T Center lost its air conditioning due to electrical problems. But that wasn’t enough to stop Tim Duncan and his Spurs. Only missing one shot the entire night, Duncan scored 21 points and 10 rebounds in the uncomfortable temperature on the court.
The hot air on the court led to an early exit for LeBron James, who left the game due to what appeared to be muscle cramps after a layup made with four minutes left to go and Miami down by two. James led the Heat in scoring with 25 points on the night, but also had four turnovers to his three assists in the 110-95 loss to the Spurs.
Spurs are 6-0 in Game 1s of NBA Finals.
The Heat rebounded from their loss on Thursday and took Game 2 of the Finals 98-96. LeBron James posted 35 points and 10 rebounds in the win against the Spurs. James had a slow start in the first quarter after he scored only two points, however he then went 13-for-18 for the rest of his 36 minutes of play.
Tony Parker led the Spurs in scoring with 21 points on the night with seven assists. San Antonio missed their final four free throws of the game.
Miami is 6-0 in Game 2s of playoff series when trailing 1-0.
