Execution stuns Heat

Duncan tops two NBA Playoff Records

The term built not bought began when a billboard was put up at the beginning of the NBA Finals series against the Miami Heat proclaiming “Built Vs Bought.” It is becoming ever more clear that that would be a correct statement as the Spurs took the Miami Heat to task in Game Four of the NBA Finals, thrashing the two-time defending Champions 107-86.

The only positive comments on the Spurs record breaking performances over the past two games have come from the Heat.  The Spurs have yet to say anything other than, they can get better.

“I’m pleased that they performed as well as they did while we’ve been in Miami and that’s about as far as it goes. Now, we’ve got to go home and play as well or better,” Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich said after the game.

“They played great and I can honestly say I don’t think any of us were expecting this type of performance. They (the Spurs) were great. You have to give them credit for that,” Heat Head Coach Eric Spoelstra said after the game

“They’re a high-oiled machine, and they move the ball extremely well,” Heat Superstar LeBron James said after the 107-86 loss in Game 4. “They put you in so many difficult positions. If you’re not right on time, right on target, they’re going to make you pay for it.”

And pay for it they did.  The Spurs shot a scorching 57.1% (54.2% through the series) while holding the Heat to 45% shooting.

Another highlight for the Spurs Organization was Tim Duncan becoming the All Time leader in NBA Playoff History surpassing LA Lakers Great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as well as breaking the All Time Career NBA Playoff Double-Doubles record surpassing another Lakers Great, Magic Johnson.

“Congrats to Tim Duncan the new All-Time NBA Playoff Double-Double Leader!” was the tweet by Magic Johnson after game four.

“I can assure you he doesn’t care,” was the response given by Head Coach Gregg Popovich on Duncan’s achievements.


The Spurs arrived home to San Antonio after 3 AM to a nice crowd.

Spurs drop game two

The Miami Heat rebounded from their exhausting loss in Game 1 of the NBA Finals, winning Game 2 against the San Antonio Spurs 98-96 in San Antonio at the AT&T Center Sunday Night. For the Spurs, it was their first home loss in these 2014 Playoffs and if not for James being on the floor, the Spurs would have taken this game as well.

“Just play the game, try to play the game the right way. However the flow of the game is going, I just try to impose my will in some kind of way,” James said afterward. “Just myself and my teammates in a position to succeed, and I was happy in the fact that I was able to make some plays to help us get the victory tonight.”

Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich knew going into the series that perfection for 48 minutes would be required to take out the Squad from Miami.

“LeBron did a great job at his end and we had to be really pretty perfect at the other end and we didn’t,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said. “We didn’t take advantage. We made bad decisions. The ball stuck to us. We tried to do it individually and we’re not good enough to do that.”

Game 3 moves to Miami Tuesday night where Miami hopes to secure two more victories at home.  For the Spurs, the home loss made the “drive for five” a little harder but not impossible.

“Now we’re in a tough situation because we’ve got to go to Miami and get one there,” Ginobili said in post game comments.  “We don’t want to come back here down 3-1. It’s very hard to overcome that.”
