It was raining threes last night in San Antonio. The Spurs set a NBA Finals record in making 16 three pointers in route to their 113-77 victory. The Spurs now have a 2-1 series lead. The previous record of threes in a game was 14.
Most of the damage was done by two players Danny Green and Gary Neal. The two combined to make 13 three pointers with Green hitting 7 and Neal making 6. The two only missed 6 three point attempts. Kawhi Leonard added 2 and Tony Parker had 1. Check out all 16 of the three pointers below.
“Those guys shot incredibly,” Duncan said. “Gave us the breathing room when we needed it.”
“It’s a dream come true,” Neal said. “Me and Danny both went through a lot of stuff together. We were guys that showed up two hours before practice started to get shots up and to prove to the coaching staff that we belong, and we’re going to do whatever we need to do to get minutes.

During the 4th quarter of Game 3 of the NBA Finals, two things were trending worldwide on Twitter.
One was "LeBron's Game 3."
That's understandable. King James was flat out terrible Tuesday night.
The other..."Gary Neal."
Chances are, if you don't live near the Riverwalk, you are not very familiar with the Spurs guard.
But ... now you are...
In San Antonio, its all about the name on the front of the jersey.
Apologies to Gary Neal, but this was all part of the plan.
The San Antonio Spurs reserve guard scored 24 points last night in a historic 113 – 77 blow out of the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.
Before last night, Neal was relatively unknown, and by the time the game was over, he was a part of NBA lore. Perfect...
Danny Green is starting for the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals.
He connected on 10-of-15 shots in his first two games while averaging 14.5 points on the series.
Each time he touches the basketball, though, my mind inevitably drifts into a one-sided conversation about the importance of fit and confidence in determining individual NBA success.
Green, for example, did...
As time was running down in the first half of game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, Spurs guard Gary Neal continued his hot shooting by draining a buzzer-beating three pointer.
Watch as Mike Breen of ESPN drops his customary “bang call” as the buzzer sounds:
Neal beats buzzer to end first half [Point Forward]
So far the MVP of this year’s NBA Finals has been Danny Green, Yes Danny Green. In Game 3 Green was part of NBA history. As a team the Spurs hit 16 threes, 7 of which came from Green. Green was 1 off the NBA Finals record of 8 three pointers in a game. Not bad for a player that was cut 3 times during his career.
Green is 12 of 14 his last two games behind the three point line...
Danny Green and Gary Neal aren’t NBA royalty like LeBron James. Either undrafted or unwanted, they once were more likely to be found playing in summer league or some other country than against the mighty Miami Heat. On Tuesday, they led the San Antonio Spurs to one of the biggest blowouts in NBA Finals history. Green made seven of the Spurs’ Finals-record 16 3-pointers, Tim...
Danny Green had himself quite a night on Tuesday in Game 3 of the NBA Finals. The former Tar Heel hit 7-9 three pointers and scored 27 points to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 113-77 win over Miami for a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven series. Green's shooting along with teammate Gary Neal hitting six threes helped the Spurs set an NBA Finals record for three pointers made with...
Danny Green certainly isn’t cocky, which is surprising, given his lights-out shooting thus far in the NBA Finals.
Still, the Spurs guard, who shrugged after Game 3 that his team’s success in reining in LeBron James has as much to do with James “stopping himself” as with anything the Spurs have done, stayed on the humble train on Thursday. Green was asked about his (and his...
Danny Green scored 27 points, Gary Neal added 24 and the San Antonio Spurs set an NBA Finals record with 16 3-pointers in a 113-77 victory over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night that gave them a 2-1 series lead.
Green hit seven of nine 3s, Neal was six for 10 from deep and Tim Duncan chipped in 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Spurs, who responded to a 19-point drubbing in Game 2...
The Spurs were up by 10 late in the 2nd quarter but the Miami Heat made a run and tied up the score with 44 seconds left. Tony Parker then hit a three pointer. On the following possession Danny Green blocked LeBron James and the Spurs went on the fast break.
Duncan threw a perfect outlet pass to Tony Parker, who then found Gary Neal wide open on the wing. Neal nailed the three right...
The enemy of my enemy is my friend. The San Antonio Spurs are not the most interesting or exciting NBA team around (and Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich likes it that way). They’re not polarizing like the Miami Heat. People tune in to see them fall. And one of the keys to making the Heat fall is Spurs forward Danny Green.
Danny Green has been a hero for the Spurs this NBA Finals, and...
THEY'RE ON FIRE
The San Antonio Spurs connected on an NBA Finals record 16 3-pointers, breaking the previous record of 14, in the Game 3 blowout over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night 113-77. Danny Green’s 7 makes increased his Finals’ 3-pointers total up to 16, a Spurs record for most made in an NBA Finals series. Watch Danny Green (7), Gary Neal (6), Kawhi Leonard (2) and Tony Parker (1) all...
During the NBA Finals, John Karalis of Red's Army will be contributing to Project Spurs during the San Antonio Spurs' chase for title number five.
I had no idea who Danny Green was a couple of summers ago.
I was in New York, with Jeff Garcia, going to a charity game at St. John’s University. At that point, Green was a former Spur, trying like hell to get back...
The Spura and Heat will get things going again tonight in Game 4 of the 2013 NBA Finals in San Antonio as San Antonio will look to take a strangle hold of the series in the Finals.
The Spurs are 2-1 right now and how they got that 2-1 lead in Game 3 was a night no Spurs fan will ever forget.
Led by Danny Green and gary Neal, the Spurs set a Finals record with 16 three-pointers...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- From big 3s to Big Three, the Spurs had it all in the NBA Finals' raucous return to San Antonio.
Danny Green made seven of the Spurs' finals-record 16 3-pointers, Tim Duncan had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and the Spurs clobbered the Miami Heat 113-77 on Tuesday night to take 2-1 lead in the series.
Green scored 27 points and Gary Neal made six 3-pointers...
