The Miami Heat's victory in Game 2 of the NBA Finals exposed some cracks in the San Antonio Spurs' armor. 

San Antonio hung tough, but the Spurs' collapse down the stretch shined a spotlight on issues that have hindered them through the series' first two games. 

According to Basketball-Reference, the Heat bested the Spurs in three of the four factors of success in Game 2, posting a superior effective field goal percentage (55.4 percent), turnover percentage (6.3 percent) and free-throw rate (.133). The one factor the Spurs dominated was offensive rebounding percentage, as they controlled that category by a staggering 12 percent.
