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.”
