The Miami Heat were down 75-74 with 3:04 remaining in the third quarter, and then the San Antonio Spurs decided to turn on the afterburners.
Thanks to a 25-5 run over the span of the next seven minutes, the Spurs crushed the Heat 114-104 and are now sitting just a single game away from hoisting the 2013 Larry O'Brien trophy.
Manu Ginobili, who was inserted into the starting lineup for the first time all season, led the Spurs with 24 points and 10 assists while shooting an impressive 8-of-14 from the field and 7-of-8 from the free-throw line.
Danny Green set the NBA Finals record for most three pointers made with 25 three-pointers through Game 5. In addition to setting that record, Green had 24 points and three blocked shots.
I could go on and on about the Spurs' efficiency, like Tony Parker's 26 points on 10-of-14 shooting, but the entire team was incredibly efficient, shooting 60 percent on the night.
Now, LeBron and company are in a must-win scenario from here on out, with Game 6 set for a 9 p.m. ET tip on Tuesday.
