VIDEO: NBA's micro-movie for Game 5 of the NBA Finals

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

From the quick reminder of how these teams historically do in Game 5 matchups in the NBA Finals (you know, ones they're successful in) to the great camera angles and shots we don't normally see in television broadcasts, the NBA's micro-movie for Game 5 between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat is a pretty cool way to kill 6 minutes and 43 seconds.

It shows you a lot of the pregame hype, emphasizes Manu Ginobili's role from starting his first game of the season, and the great comment from Gregg Popovich to Danny Green about not caring about how many shots he takes or makes, but he wants him to be ready. As we saw and the micro-movie shows again, Green certainly was ready.

And I could listen to Pop yell, "It's supposed to be hard; it's the Finals! Give them some adversity! Knock the stuffing out of them!" all day long.

Game 6 is at 9 p.m. ET Tuesday.
