NBA Finals Game Two: Spurs at Heat

USA TODAY Sports

Must win for Miami after their game one loss. Who will step up? A very brief preview and game thread for game two.

San Antonio Spurs at Miami Heat: 7pm CDT on ABC

Game one of the Finals featured some excellent basketball from both teams, though the shooting declined in the second half. Still, there were a minimum of turnovers in the game, including a remarkable four by the San Antonio Spurs.

The Heat seemed in some control of the game until the Spurs took over in the 4th quarter. After stretching their lead to seven (88-81) on a Danny Green three pointer, the Spurs let the Heat back in the game in part due to Green's foul on Ray Allen's attempted three two possessions later.

However, Tony Parker, the star of game one, made a miraculous bank shot as the shot clock expired with six seconds left in the game that stretched the lead to four, and the Spurs hung on for a huge road win.

The Heat cannot afford to lose two at home, with the next three scheduled for San Antonio. As always, the key will be whether players other than LeBron James come through. James himself probably needs to look to score a little more, as his 18 in game one was not enough, despite his triple double.

I'm hoping for another one as exciting and entertaining as game one. Enjoy it. Talk about it here.
