The San Antonio Spurs first possession wasn't anything groundbreaking. Tony Parker received a screen from Tim Duncan at the top of the arc and Miami trapped Parker aggressively. Duncan slipped into the lane and Parker fed him the pass.
Chris Bosh, defending Tiago Splitter on the play, dropped down for a beat to help on Duncan. Udonis Haslem quickly scampered from the top of the key, where he and Mario Chalmers corralled Parker, to the left block. Duncan took three confident dribbles before unfurling a right-handed hook into the net.
There was still a lot of basketball to play -- 47 minutes and 40 seconds, actually. But the Spurs' onslaught was just getting started.no comments
