The San Antonio Spurs destroyed the Miami Heat in Game 3 to take a 2-1 lead on Tuesday night. After splitting the first two games of the series in Miami, Tim Duncan and company gained the upper hand with a 113-77 victory. As you would expect, Spurs fans were loving it.

The series is far from over, but a collection of fans were so excited that they decided to party in the streets as though their team had just won the whole damn thing. We’re talking car horns beeping and kids in diapers on top of a pickup truck.

With the way some of these Spurs fans were acting, you’d swear the team didn’t have two wins to go.

That being said, they had every right to be thrilled with the way some of their role players performed. If San Antonio can get contributions from guys like Danny Green and Gary Neal going forward, it will be incredibly difficult to beat. However, we know LeBron James isn’t going to lay down quietly. The Heat have been here many times before and still managed to come out on top. Game 4 will be a must-win for Miami.

LeBron blocks Duncan after sweet Manu dish

In Game 4 of the NBA Finals Thursday night there was a sequence of basketball-deliciousness that needs to be seen to be believed.

Late in the third quarter, San Antonio Spurs guard Manu Ginobili drove into the lane and threw a behind-the-head pass to Tim Duncan...

Spurs Strike Again, Extinguish Heat’s Flame

Greatness is easily overlooked when it’s quiet. We witnessed Ali because we heard him. We revered Jordan because he revered himself.
