The San Antonio Spurs did everything right from the final 10 seconds of the first half until the final buzzer sounded en route to a dominant 36-point win over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
Head coach Gregg Popovich's team holds a 2-1 advantage over the defending NBA champion Heat squad that is looking to avoid losing back-to-back games for the first time since January.
San Antonio has held a 2-1 series lead in the NBA Finals during three of its four championships, so this is familiar territory for Pop, Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili.
Each game of the Finals has exhibited vastly different—and unexpected—results despite the parity of this matchup. But the Spurs have come out on top of two games, and they must continue to do a few things to win two more battles for an impressive fifth title in 15 years.
