Quickcap: Spurs fail to keep pace, lose to Heat 103-84

Christian Petersen

It was a close game through the first two and a half quarters. It was Spurs by one, 62-61 with 3:49 left in the 3rd when the Heat when on a 35-7 run that put the game away, and tied the series at one game each.

Throughout the first quarter, the Spurs played every other possession like Dr. Jekyll or Mr. Hyde. After working the offense to perfection for open three-pointers from Danny Green, there would be forced passes and hesitation that led to turnovers and rushed shots at the end of the shot clock. and yet, because Green made all three of his three-pointers that he took, the Spurs were tied with the Heat at 22.

In the second quarter, it was much the same story through the first 10 minutes, and then San Antonio had a scoring drought for the last 150 seconds of the half, but went into the locker room only down five points.

But the Spurs climbed back into the game and led, albeit by a single point, deep into the third quarter. And that's when the roof caved in. Turnovers reigned. Bad shots proliferated. The offense looked, well the nicest word I can think of to describe it is discombobulated. But you can be sure much harsher language would be appropriate.

The fourth quarter began with the Heat up 10, but it wasn't even 5 minutes into the final frame and the game was done. All of the Spurs starters were sitting, and the garbage time guys had entered the game and would get the score to a respectable number before the final buzzer sounded. Yes, 19 points is a respectable margin of defeat after a game like that.
