Why That Matters:
– This was San Antonio’s last game playing at home – the next 2 games will be in Miami, giving the Heat the home court advantage for the remainder of the playoffs
– The Heat destroyed San Antonio at home to bring the series to a 2-2 tie in game 4, so game 5 was a serious must-win for the Spurs
– Final score: Miami 104 – San Antonio 114
– Manu Ginobili stepped up his game yesterday and scored a season high of 24 points
– Danny Green broke the NBA Finals 3-point shot record in a series in the 3rd quarter of the game; he is currently to 25-38 so far and still has 2 more games to add to that number – that’s a 70% completion rate – AMAZING!
– Even with the hamstring injury, Tony Parker continues to be a key asset to the Spurs, scoring 26 points (the most on the team) last night
