SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili sat in mostly stunned silence, all that playoff experience not preparing them for how they felt after two games.
They were satisfied, yet shaken.
The San Antonio Spurs had taken home-court advantage away from the Miami Heat, but then the reigning champions took them apart.
So as they prepared to bring the NBA Finals back home for the first time in seven years, the veterans struggled with how they were supposed to sum up their situation.
Getting one in South Florida was an accomplishment, but nothing that provided them any momentum after the Heat's 103-84 victory Sunday in Game 2.

We got a game here. We have three at home, so we're excited about that. But if we play like we did tonight, that's not going t...

Check out the funny clip above. [The Basketball Jones] Article...

After 11 seasons and 3 NBA championships, it’s hard to imagine the Spurs without either Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobli, Tony Parker, or head coach Gregg Popovich. This GIF is spectacular in that it shows just how they’ve aged in the decade plus they’ve been together, and how breathtaking Manu’s glorious mane of hair used to be.

The San Antonio Spurs have some of the most passionate and dedicated fans in the NBA, and probably all of professional sports. Apparently they also know some skilled barbers.
Case in point, this fan who wears his love for Spurs guard Manu Ginobili on the back of his head:

Manu Ginobili provided a nice spark off the bench for San Antonio in the first quarter of Game 3. Along with his 4 points and 2 assists, the Spurs veteran threw down this two-handed jam after hitting D Wade with the pump fake.
San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker posted, in French, on his
Facebook page that he has a slight "stretch" in his hamstring.
The Spurs' company line after two games in Miami could have easily been this: "We got the split we wanted going back to San Antonio." That's normally the default for road dogs who wrestle away homecourt advantage.
Instead, company man Manu Ginobili delivered a considerably more blunt assessment after Game 2's 103-84 slaughter. The Spurs wanted more than a...
