Miami Heat beat San Antonio Spurs 88 - 95, Back to back NBA Champions!

Miami Heat, San Antonio Spurs, NBA Champions, back to back, NBA 2013 Finals, NBA finals, Lebron James

Lebron James led the Miami Heat to it's consecutive championships. With 40 seconds to go in the fourth Tim  Duncan had the chance to tie the game to 90 but missed the lay up. Then LeBron James makes a 20-foot jumper from the right wing to make it 88-92 with 27.9 seconds to go for a four point Miami lead.

In the dying seconds, Manu Ginobili turned the ball over again and Tim Duncan foul Lebron. Ginobili killed the Spurs chances to come back in the fourth with his sloppy plays and killer turn-overs.


James, 28, is once again the Finals MVP after he scored 37 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and took control of the game during the final minutes before ultimately prevailing over the Spurs in Miami, 95-88. James was the catalyst when it counted the most with the Heat clinging to a two point lead with 30 seconds left.

James nailed a jumper to make it 92-88 with 27.9 seconds left on the clock. Moments later he stole the ball and was fouled in the process. James, often dubbed King James, hit both foul shots to put Miami up six with 23.5 seconds remaining. The sea of Miami Heat fans, all dressed in white, began celebrating as the clock ticked down to zero.

Dwyane Wade scored 23 points and won his third NBA title. Shane Battier had 18 on six 3-pointers.

Duncan had 24 points and 12 rebounds for the Spurs, but missed a shot and follow attempt right under the basket with about 50 seconds left and the Spurs trailing by two.

Kawhi Leonard hit a 25-foot three point jumper to bring the Spurs to within two, but that's as close they would get in the final two minutes of the game before Battier nailed a three and James took over from there.

Spurs player Tony Parker was just 3-for-12 with 10 points, four assists while Manu Ginobili had 18 points.
