That started a 33-5 run that turned the game into a blowout win for the Heat to even the series. The video above is the start of that run.
A couple of things here show what the Spurs need to adjust. One, is dealing with LeBron setting the picks for Chalmers — the Heat had a lot of success with that and rule No. 1 in the NBA is to run a play until the other team stops it. Second (and you only see one on this video), the Spurs can’t turn the ball over 17 times. Yes the Heat ratcheted up their defensive pressure, but a number of the Spurs turnovers were just them being careless with the ball. When was the last time you remember Tim Duncan just throwing the ball into the first row? Plus Manu Ginobili was just terrible. Expect the Spurs to be better about that in Game 3.
The question remains: Can the Spurs slow the Heat when Miami starts knocking down shots and making plays like they did in that run? Do the Heat just have another gear the Spurs can’t match?
Game 3 is Tuesday night in San Antonio.
