The Miami Heat suffered their worst loss of the season, falling 111-87 against the San Antonio Spurs.

LeBron James had one of his worst shooting performances of the year, yet still nearly picked up a triple-double. His struggles were largely due to great defense by Kawhi Leonard.

Tim Duncan had a great performance, as did many other members of the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James struggled, so it was a safe bet that the team would not be able to pick up the slack. LeBron James is the team leader in points, rebounds and assists.

This was expected to be a good matchup, considering it was a rematch of last year’s finals. The game was a fun one to follow, still. Here is a collection of the best Tweets throughout the game.

 LeBron got rid of the mask early.

LeBron went through some scrimmage work at shootaround this morning w/o mask. Not totally surprised he ditched it here.

 Memories stirring of Miami's previous game.

It's beginning to look a lot like the beginning in Houston.

 Tim Duncan began heating up.

Tim Duncan doing things like that remains stunning, even more so now.

 Heat down early.

#HEATgame: End of the 1stQ - HEAT 22, Spurs 37. Chris Bosh is Miami's leading scorer with 8pts.

Spurs seem to be riding high.

Spurs playmaking phenomenal so far. Keep in mind, they're coming off win in CLE where they had 39 assists on 43 FGs.

— Michael Wallace (@WallaceNBA_ESPN) March 7, 2014

 

While San Antonio is showing out, people question if Miami even showed up.

The #Heat have decided not to much D tonight. The lanes are wide open. Rare to see against Miami's D.

— James (@JamesWalkerNFL) March 7, 2014

 

 Big question looming for Miami.

Are we in agreement that Chris Bosh is the most likely of the Heat’s trio to leave?

 Boris Diaw was hot tonight, scoring big when it mattered most.

Diaw's 3 closes first half scoring for Spurs. San Antonio leads 62-51. Inefficient half for LeBron, who ditched the mask.

— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) March 7, 2014

 

to the Cleveland game, Boris Diaw has made 12 consecutive field goals.

One silver lining for Miami tonight.

Can’t remember the last time I saw Michael Beasley play this hard defensively. Has it ever happened?

 Local NFL stars Brian Orakpo and Jamaal Charles were enjoying the game.

 Logic.

We're forcing turnover to commit turnovers to get called for fouls. I get it! #HEATlive http://t.co/Nr1n5MC253

 It is about time people take notice. One of the best players on the court tonight. 

Kind of starting to think Kawhi Leonard makes a wee bit of difference for the Spurs in these type .

— Jeff McDonald (@JMcDonald_SAEN) March 7, 2014

 

 Not quite Jim Carey.

Currently shooting 5 of 17 from field, LeBron working on worst game of season. With or without mask, he's been in a funk.

— Michael Wallace (@WallaceNBA_ESPN) March 7, 2014

 

 Duncan with the double-double.

21 points, 11 rebounds for Tim Duncan. #Spurs by 14

— Paul Garcia PS (@PaulGarciaPS) March 7, 2014

 

 Kawhi Leonard proving something that he has already proven. Vastly underrated.

LeBron James has 5 turnovers and 4 have come against Kawhi Leonard as his primary defender.

— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) March 7, 2014

 

Talking about LeBron here... Yikes. Giving the MVP race right back to KD. 

Make that 1-for-19. 1-for-11 today. 0-for-8 on Tuesday.

— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) March 7, 2014

 

 I hate when I agree with Skip.

Kawhi Leonard made LeBron James say, "No mas."

— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) March 7, 2014

 

 Did the game mean a lot, or is it "just one game?"

Stay weird, Heat-Spurs regular season games.

— Tom Haberstroh (@tomhaberstroh) March 7, 2014

 

 Big game for the veteran big man.

Summary of the night.

Miami loses to Spurs, 113-87. San Antonio again nationally ignored, again legit. LeBron has made one shot outside paint in 2 games.

— Ethan J. Skolnick (@EthanJSkolnick) March 7, 2014

 

The San Antonio Spurs are now only half of a game behind the Oklahoma City Thunder for first place in the Western Conference. It was a great display by the Spurs to defeat the Heat the way they did. Unfortunately, Skip Bayless went a bit overboard… I know, shocking. Skip used the conclusion of this game to tweet out what appears to be his NBA Finals prediction…..

Spurs in 6.
