When game 1 of the NBA finals began, fans and analysts alike were anxious to see how the San Antonio Spurs would perform after a nearly 10 day break after their conference championship sweep. While some wondered if they would be too rested to take on the hot Miami Heat, the Spurs proved otherwise. Thanks to an outstanding performance from team leader Tim Duncan, the Spurs won the first game of the series, getting an important road win, and taking an early lead. By the time game 2 rolled around, the Spurs may have been feeling good about their road win against the Heat, but the Miami team was ready for vengeance. After 17 turnovers, the Spurs went on to be trampled by the Heat in a 103-84 loss, tying the series, and leaving the Spurs ready to fight back.
