Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs Set Tone for 2013 NBA Finals in Game 1
Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
“The Spurs don’t have a closer,” they said. “LeBron James will shut Parker down,” they said. Well, the Frenchman removed all doubt with a floater to beat the shot clock with just seconds left to seal a Game 1 win for San Antonio in the NBA Finals. The best part, LeBron was draped all over him and Parker still not only got the shot off, but nailed it to seal the deal for the visiting team.
No Heat player scored 20 points and LeBron’s triple-double wasn’t enough to overcome 54 points by the Spurs’ Big Three that takes Miami’s home court advantage away for the rest of the series right off the bat.
The Heat got decent performances from Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade, but nine days’ rest played to San Antonio’s favor and now things get interesting heading into Game 2. Miami must now win at home before traveling to Texas for three games, which could end the series early if someone else on the Heat’s roster doesn’t get going.
