San Antonio Spurs vs. Miami Heat: Game 1 Postgame Grades and Analysis
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

If Game 1 is any predictor of how exciting, competitive and compelling this NBA Finals is going to be, we're all in for one wild ride. 

The San Antonio Spurs, led by a remarkable shot by Tony Parker with under 10 seconds left in the game, knocked off the Miami Heat in Miami, 92-88.

With the Spurs up just two points, Parker dribbled around the perimeter, fell to one knee—Harlem Globetrotter style—then put up a bank shot prayer just one millisecond before the shot clock expired. It bounced in.

Parker ended the night with 21 points and six assists, while Tim Duncan added 20 points and 14 rebounds to power the Spurs past the Heat. 

LeBron James had a solid night, with a triple-double consisting of 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists. 

The Heat led for a majority of the game, but they got outscored 23-16 in the fourth quarter thanks to an efficient team effort by the Spurs, which shouldn't be shocking.

Game 2 is set for Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, and it's all of a sudden turned into a must-win for Miami.
