    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    Danny Green has been on fire, setting a record with 25 three pointers made — he’s passed Ray Allen and has the record for most threes in the NBA Finals. He just doesn’t seem to miss, having shot 65.8 percent from deep this series. What is stunning is the quality of looks he’s getting —…

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    SAN ANTONIO — Coming into Game 5, Ray Allen held the all-time record for three-pointers made in an NBA Finals series with the 22 he hit back in 2008 on the way to a championship as a member of the Boston Celtics. It was only fitting, then, that the shot made by Danny Green in…

    Miami Heat v San Antonio Spurs - Game 5

    SAN ANTONIO — Manu Ginobili had been largely missing in action for the Spurs through the first four games of the Finals, and in a series as close as this one in terms of overall talent possessed by each team, San Antonio couldn’t afford to be without what has consistently been its most dangerous weapon…

    SAN ANTONIO — We’ve got another good one here in San Antonio, where the Spurs came out with aggression and were able to contain a late run from the heat to take a 61-52 lead into halftime of Game 5 of the NBA Finals. The Spurs made a change to their starting lineup in this…

    BASKET-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT

    SAN ANTONIO — All season long, when the Heat would crank up their defense and make a run, other teams wilted. San Antonio stood up the the runs, executed, hit open shots and a lot of tough ones, and won 114-104 to take a 3-2 series lead. San Antonio will have two chances on the…

    Miami Heat forward Lewis attempts a shot while Utah Jazz forwards Carroll and Favors defend during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Salt Lake City, Utah

    After the Big Three (LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh) and Ray Allen, which current Miami Heat player has posted the highest-scoring season in his career? It’s the guy who hasn’t played even nine minutes in a single playoff game. Rashard Lewis, who averaged more than 20 points three times with the Seattle SuperSonics…

    Heat's James rebounds against Spurs' Leonard during Game 4 of their NBA Finals basketball series in San Antonio

    LeBron James is the most questioned NBA champion ever. The snickers and jeering reached critical mass after he struggled through the Heat’s loss to the Spurs in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Can he elevate his game on the biggest stage? Is he afraid of the moment? Why does he crumble under pressure? It…

    Heat's James and Spurs' Parker follow the play during Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Miami needed a better defensive effort and they got it — San Antonio shot 44.3 percent, the Heat forced 18 turnovers and allowed the Spurs just 5 offensive rebounds. They needed someone to step up besides LeBron James and they got Dwyane Wade in the hot tub time machine back to 2006 — 32 points,…

  10. Report: Doc Rivers, Clippers have mutual interest

    Jun 13, 2013, 5:55 PM EDT

    Doc Rivers, Ronny Turiaf

    Two years ago, Doc Rivers signed a five-year, $35 million contract extension with the Celtics. Even for a coach like Rivers, $7 million is on the high end, but so is a five-year contract. The Celtics, in effect, were paying extra for the stability of keeping a good coach around for so long – even…

    Jun 11, 2013, 12:13 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat just have another gear that no NBA team can match. The kind of gear that puts on a 33-5 run against a very good Spurs team in the NBA Finals. But they have played these playoffs more like a Top Fuel dragster — they can’t sustain that level of play for an…

  12. Heat get their own D-League team

    Jun 10, 2013, 3:00 PM EDT

    Juwan Howard, Dwyane Wade, Jarvis Varnado

    The Miami Heat surely have designs of contending for championships for the next several years, even though LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh can each become free agents in any of the next three offseasons after this one. Of course, the Heat plan to keep all three, and at this point, losing them would…

    Jun 10, 2013, 1:14 PM EDT

    Spurs' Parker, Duncan, and Ginobili sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    It wasn’t so much the plan as the execution of it. Despite what the final score suggests, San Antonio did a number of things right in Game 2. They once again made things difficult for LeBron James — through two games he is averaging 17.5 points on 42.4 percent shooting. He started Sunday night 2-of-12…

    Chauncey Billups

    Chauncey Billups was in Miami Sunday, picking up the inaugural NBA Best Teammate award. But he wouldn’t mind being back in Miami next fall. Billups is an unrestricted free agent this summer and like a lot of veterans willing to play for less money if they get a shot at a ring, he has interest…

    Spurs' Green reacts after a three point basket against the Heat during Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    Asked after Game 1 how Danny Green had progressed since they played together for the Cavaliers, LeBron James responded, “Is that a serious question?” You can bet LeBron will get more questions now about his former Cleveland teammate, and now he’ll know they’re serious. Green shot 5-for-5 on 3-pointers and 6-for-6 overall to lead the…

    Heat's James dunks on Spurs' Green during Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami

    MIAMI — For nearly three quarters the San Antonio Spurs seemed to be doing it again — they held LeBron James to 2-of-12 shooting, they were getting back in transition and taking away the easy baskets the Heat thrive on, plus Danny Green was nailing threes like they were lay-ups. It was a close game…

    Jun 9, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    MIAMI — The Spurs know what’s coming. Talking to them Saturday after practice they fully expect the Heat to come out much more aggressive, particularly on defense — Miami will trap, jump passing lanes and try to turn the Spurs over. In Game 1 the Heat respected Tony Parker and didn’t try to trap him…

  19. Dwyane Wade admits it: Game 2 is must win for Miami

    Jun 8, 2013, 2:24 PM EDT

    BKN-NBA-FINALS-SPURS-HEAT-PRACTICE

    MIAMI — Everyone else danced around the question. Game 2 is important because all NBA Finals games are important, most Heat players said. Which is true. But some games are more important than others. Just think if if Miami drops its first two games at home… “We’re not a team that really says too much,…

  20. LeBron’s heroic end spoiled by standard (for him) start and Tony Parker

    Jun 7, 2013, 1:13 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    LeBron James looked loose during his post-game news conference – smiling as he described the Spurs’ final play as “the longest 24 seconds that I’ve been a part of,” repeatedly asking reporters how the box score could give the Spurs 21 second-chance points on six offensive rebounds, admitting the third quarter had taken so much…

    Jun 6, 2013, 10:20 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    Tim Duncan overcame an 0-for-5 start and two early fouls to help the Spurs stay close, but too much LeBron James and too much outside shooting from Miami’s role players has the Heat up 52-49 over San Antonio at halftime of Game 1 of the NBA Finals. Duncan has 12 points, including a mid-range jumper…

  22. NBA Finals Game 1: Spurs win fourth quarter, win game 92-88

    Jun 6, 2013, 9:49 PM EDT

    LeBron James

    Miami was up by three points heading into the fourth quarter but the Spurs were the better team when it mattered — San Antonio had zero turnovers in the quarter, Miami had 5. The Heat shot just 27.8 percent in the fourth quarter and Chris Bosh was 1-of-5 from the floor. Combine that with great…

    Tim Duncan LeBron James

    This isn’t the first time Tim Duncan and the Spurs stood in the way of LeBron James and what he sees as his destiny to be one of the game’s all time greats. Back in 2007 LeBron dragged his Cavaliers squad to the Finals, only to be just carved up by the Spurs winning their…

    Miami Heat's Allen celebrates a three point shot against the Indiana Pacers during Game 7 of their NBA Eastern Conference final basketball playoff in Miami

    There was some reports yesterday that Ray Allen was considering opting out of his contract for next season in Miami because he wanted to return to Boston.
