After game 2 of the 2013 NBA Finals, it looked like the Miami Heat might have had the upper hand. However, whatever momentum Miami had, San Antonio Spurs totally erased that and Danny Green was the main contributor. The Spurs blew out the Heat 113-77 because of Danny Green accurate and on-fire three-point shooting.

Green had 27 points overall and went 7-9 behind the arc. Overall, his team went 16-32 from downtown as they rolled over Miami. In game 2, Green was a monster from three and it continued Tuesday.

His hot shooting was contagious and led to San Antonio shooting 48.9% overall. Green’s three-point shooting success has been integral to San Antonio’s success this series and will continue to do so. Miami should be coming out with much intensity after this humiliating loss, but Green can easily quiet them with his hot three point shooting.

So far this series, Green has stolen some of the spotlight and I don’t think any of the Spurs will mind that he has. During game 3, Green’s hot shooting was only a one piece to the Spurs’ blow out win, but it sparked the Spurs after their game 2 loss.

San Antonio’s series success will depend in partly in to how effective Green can be from downtown. The fluid passing was there and let to many great looks for Green beyond the arc. Right now, the Spurs are sitting pretty right now and that is due in part to Green’s hot three-point shooting.
