The 2013 NBA Finals are officially upon us, as the Miami Heat hosted the San Antonio Spurs in Game 1 of their momentous series. With the stars out in full force and the role players looking to make their mark, we saw it all.
So who jumped out to a 1-0 series lead?
The Big Three was strong for both teams, specifically Miami, as LeBron James led the charge with 18 points, 18 rebounds and 10 assists. Dwyane Wade added 17 points, while Chris Bosh and Ray Allen each scored 13.
Mario Chalmers hit two three-point field goals and Norris Cole led a quality charge from the bench.
For the Spurs, Tony Parker stepped up with 21 points and six assists, while Tim Duncan tallied 20 points and 14 boards. Kawhi Leonard tallied a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, but it was Manu Ginobili's 13 points that kept San Antonio in it early.
The question is, were the Spurs able to shock the world and pull out a Game 1 victory in Miami? Or were the Heat able to hold down home court and gain the edge as they pursue their second consecutive title?
