San Antonio Spurs took the opening game of the NBA Finals in clutch fashion, converting offensive possessions into crucial points down the stretch. Heading into game 2 in South Beach, San Antonio had a chance to take control of the series but with a balanced performance from Heat star LeBron James and great supporting performances from Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller and sharpshooter Ray Allen, the defending champs evened the series at one game apiece with one of their best acts this season.
The momentum is with Miami, and we've known for some time that the Heat have an extra level with nitrous oxide and afterburners. They won 66 games this year, including 27 in a row at one point, and, yes, they were last season's NBA champions. But the Spurs did their job in Miami by getting a win and giving themselves home-court advantage. It's technically possible, if unlikely, that they can close out the series with three wins at home here. Even if the combined scoreline of the two games is a bit lopsided, all that matters is the series tally, and that's even.
As the series now shifts to San Antonio, Game 3 becomes all the more important for both teams. The veteran Spurs will play three-consecutive games on their home floor and if they're able to win Game 3 they'll surely put themselves in solid position moving forward while Miami looks to return the favor and take the first game in San Antonio from the four-time NBA champions.
Wade has shown signs of relevance -- he had 21 points in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals -- but his knee is gimpy, and his game needs explosion. Bosh has fallen in love with the idea that he needs to take a lot of three-pointers, and although he had a double-double in Game 2, it was his first since the conference semifinals, and he only had 12 points and 10 rebounds.
