The San Antonio Spurs rallied in the fourth quarter of Game 1 on their NBA Finals series with the Miami Heat to capture a 92-88 win. Not only did they get the win, the stole home court from the Heat and look poised to take Game 2 this Sunday.
After the win, Kawhi Leonard, Gary Neal, Boris Diaw and Patty Mills spoke on the thrilling win.
Earlier in his career, when head coach Gregg Popovich opted to bring Manu Ginobili off the bench in favor of less talented players like Brent Barry and Michael Finley the saying went "It doesn't matter who starts the game, but who finishes it." In honor of Tim Duncan's Game 1 of the the 2013 Finals I'd like to amend that saying to "It doesn't matter how you start a game, but how you finish."
Duncan had as dreadful a first quarter as you could ask for. He started off 0-5 and picked up two early fouls. He returned in the second quarter to help stimey a Heat run and slice a nine point Heat lead to three by halftime. Duncan continued to dominate in the second half on his way to 20 points, 14 rebounds, four assists and three blocks as the Spurs picked up a 92-88 victory. After the game, Duncan discussed that his confidence in his shot never waned despite his early struggles.no comments
