MIAMI – Ultimately, one play did in one player.
So when San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker got himself in trouble and then out of trouble with 5.2 seconds to play, none of the boxscore-filling statistics of Miami Heat forward LeBron James amounted to much of consequence.
Instead, it’s 1-0 Spurs in these best-of-seven NBA Finals after Parker’s shot-clock-beating twisting bank shot sealed San Antonio’s 92-88 victory Thursday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
“It was a crazy play,” Parker said. “I felt like I lost the ball three or four times. It felt good when it left my hand and I was happy when it went in.”
