San Antonio Spurs manages to bag another win on defending champion Miami Heat’s home court Friday night, leading the Spurs one win closer to the NBA Championship.
Kawhi Leonard once again leads the team to victory with 20 points, aided by Tony Parker with 19 points and Tim Duncan with 20 points. San Antonio’s excellent offense overwhelmed Miami as they maintained an almost 20-point lead all throughout the game, owing a 57% field goal percentage.
Miami’s star player Lebron James topped the team’s score with 28 points along with 8 rebounds, followed by Chris Bosh with 12 points and Dwayne Wade with 10 points.
An interview from Spurs coach Gregg Popovich at NBA.com says that “I’m pleased that they performed as well as they did while we’ve been in Miami and that’s about as far as it goes. Now, we’ve got to go home and play as well or better.”
On the other hand, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra commends the Spurs’ play. “I’m pleased that they performed as well as they did while we’ve been in Miami and that’s about as far as it goes. Now, we’ve got to go home and play as well or better,” he says at an interview in NBA.com.
Spurs initially lost to Miami back home on Game 2; however, they manage to sweep the series by beating Heat twice in a row on their home court. San Antonio’s seemingly impeccable play featured by “precision passing” and strong offense sent some of Miami’s fans leaving the AAA arena yet again.
Game 5 will soon be played back again at AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas where the Spurs may now finally seize their fifth championship in franchise history.
