NBA Finals: Back-and-forth slugfest in Game 7 as Heat lead Spurs by two
The Miami Heat lead the San Antonio Spurs by two at the half of Game 7 after a back-and-forth ugly affair. LeBron James lead all scorers with 15.
Game 7 of the NBA Finals wasn't thrilling like Game 6, but it was closer than the first half of Game 6. The Heat and Spurs exchanged leads, with the Spurs leading for much of the first quarter, and the Heat for much of the second. After the Spurs briefly took the lead late in the second, the Heat responded with a Dwyane Wade (14 points on 7-12 shooting) isolation jumper to take a two-point lead into halftime, 46-44.
Tim Duncan leads the Spurs with 13 points, five rebounds, two assists and four steals to go with two turnovers.
LeBron James leads the Heat with 15 points, three rebounds and just one assist, while Tony Parker had 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting and just three assists, and Chris Bosh went scoreless in the first half.
The Spurs managed eight steals, many coming on strips of Ray Allen (three turnovers). The Heat were active in getting into the passing lanes and contesting 3s with San Antono only shooting 2-of-7 from beyond the arc.
Twenty-four minutes left in the 2013 NBA season, and the title is still very much up for grabs.
