NBA Finals 2013: Danny Green, Gary Neal and Some Strange LeBron James, Dwyane Wade Statistics

+Read full article

Soobum Im-USA Today Sports

On Tuesday night, the San Antonio Spurs sent a message to NBA fans across the nation. A second half beat down of the Miami Heat gave the Spurs a 2-1 series edge, but their success in Game 3 came from some unforeseen factors.

Danny Green and Gary Neal stole the show late as San Antonio set an NBA Finals record with 16 three pointers in the win. Green scored 27 points, while Neal added 24 in the victory. The Spurs were seemingly unimpressed by the Heat’s 33-5 run to seal Game 2, outscoring Miami 63-33 in the second half on Tuesday night.

Through three games of these NBA Finals however, the statistics are a bit mind-boggling and the scrutiny surrounding the Heat and their Big Three is well deserved.

Take a look at some of the shocking statistics below:

The most shocking of them might just be that bottom one. Fans and media members go through that whole LeBron James Michael Jordan debate and that final statistic is more than telling. James is struggling right now and he’s letting the Spurs dictate his performance.

It’s going to be an interesting to see James responds in Game 4, but there’s no way that these statistics and trends can continue if the Heat expect to hoist the championship trophy next week.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.

Watch Spurs HC Popovich Pull Fast One On Parker

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich has become synonymous for his cold shoulder handling of the media, but he does have a wry sense of humor on occasion. This little clip is hilarious how he just messes with Tony Parker. I couldn't stop laughing.

Barkley Calls Leonard Best Player In The World

Kawhi Leonard is one of the best young players in the NBA today and there's no disputing that. Charles Barkley however, believes that Leonard is the best player in the entire world and there has never been a more ridiculous statement to come out of his mouth. If you take Leonard away from the Spurs, they would find a way to be competitive. Take LeBron James or Stephen Curry away from their teams, and they don't have a chance.
