FHM Nation, have you recovered from the suspense yet? Because we totally haven't!
The San Antonio Spurs were able to rise to the occasion to give the Miami Heat a serious beating, 110-95, in the series opener of this year's NBA Finals. Did you see Dwyane Wade's Rondo-like drive on Tim Duncan? Were you also alarmed by LeBron James's post-cramp face? And since when did Ray Allen and Danny Green become high-flying dunkers?
Plenty of amazing stuff took place, and we can't wait to talk to you about it. Read on to see the highlights of Game 1 and how the Internet exploded for each one!
Here are a couple of Manu Ginobili's many makes from downtown in the opening period:
It's like he was keen on making it up to Spurs fans for his blunders during last year's series, making shot after shot right in the face of defenders. You have to commend San Antonio's ball distribution; the black and silver squad had 30 assists, 19 of which came from Manu and Tony Parker!
THE BIG THREE NEEDS HELP!
Miami's Big Three looked good early on, but they barely got any help from the rest of the team. Mario Chalmers, Shane Battier, Chris Andersen, and Norris Cole finished with a combined seven points and nine fouls. Granted, Rashard Lewis rallied with 10 points in 30 minutes of action, but he was always a step behind his man. Guess they were all too busy fooling around on the sidelines.
THE SPURS' BIGGEST ENEMY
San Antonio may have won Game 1, but they had to do survive first a slew of turnovers. The Spurs' fantastic shooting (59% FGM) was overshadowed by their inability to hold on to the ball (22 turnovers). As everyone who plays basketball knows, they cannot afford to have those kinds of numbers again against Miami!
