San Antonio Spurs outscored defending champion Miami Heat 114-104 with the help of outstanding performances of GDP (Manu Ginobili, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker) and shooter Danny Green, moving within one win to their fifth NBA title.
It was Ginobili's first starting in more than one year. The 11-year veteran, who had scored a total of 30 points in the first four games, rewarded Spurs coach Gregg Popovich with 24 points and 10 assists, reports Xinhua.
"Tonight he played his best game in a while," said Popovich.
Spurs point guard Parker wasn't 100 percent because of an injured hamstring but the former Finals MVP astonished everyone with a team high 26 points, including a crucial basket after the Heat cutting the gap to nine with two minutes left.
Duncan's 17-point-and-12-rebound 'double-double' helped Spurs 'Big 3' total 67 points, one more than Heat's 'Big 3'(LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh).
