Watch San Antonio’s historic hot shooting, 41-point first quarter

Jun 11, 2014, 1:14 AM EST

You are never going to see a better shooting first half. Not in the NBA Finals anyway.

San Antonio’s first quarter was historic — the Spurs scored 41 points on 86.7 percent shooting. They started out 13-of-15 shooting from the floor (and they were 7-of-10 from three in the first half). In that first quarter the Spurs hit 9-of-10 inside 8 feet, 4-of-4 from three, and missed their only shot from the midrange, but they weren’t getting forced to the midrange like Game 2.

Kawhi Leonard was 5-of-5 in the quarter and was not hesitating as he did due to foul trouble in the first two games.

It was just beautiful to watch, and you can see it again here.
