Spurs 92, Heat 88: First Blood
Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

It was a classic Spurs victory — doing whatever they could to survive multiple Heat runs before pulling away late in the din of American Airlines Arena to steal Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The usual suspects carried the load, with Tim Duncan drawing and converting a pair of key free throws while Tony Parker scored 10 of his 21 points in the fourth quarter, including a miraculous jumper that barely beat the shot clock before banking in with 5.2 seconds left. “It was a crazy play,” Parker said. “I thought I lost the ball three or four times. And it didn't work out like I wanted it to. At the end I was just trying to get a shot up. It felt good when it left my hand. I was happy it went in.”
