Beyond The Buzzer:
In his first NBA Finals, Danny Green has had a breakout series, dominating from beyond the arc. The Spurs guard has drained 25 threes on 65.8% shooting (25-38) through five games and notably surpassed Ray Allen in Game 5 to set a new NBA record for most 3-pointers made in an NBA Finals – so it’s understandable that Tony Parker is surprised that he’s still open this far into the series.
According to ESPN:
“I can’t believe he’s still open at this moment of the series,” Spurs guard Tony Parker joked. “They are still trapping me and doubling Timmy [Duncan] and Danny is wide open.”
BEST OF MAXIM
SAN ANTONIO — Spurs guard Tony Parker said Saturday the strained right hamstring that wore him down this week could tear “any time now” heading into Game 5 of the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat.
But he’s giving no thought to letting the injury properly heal.
“If it was the regular season, I would be resting like 10 days,” Parker said. “But now it’s the NBA Finals...
STUCK IT OUT
A story told by former Nets coach Avery Johnson suggests that Gregg Popovich once was close to cutting Finals hero Danny Green.

Green broke Ray Allen's 2008 mark with his fourth 3-pointer of the night early in the second half of Game 5. It was the fourth time that the once-unheralded swingman has hit at least four from long range this series.

SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- Spurs guard Danny Green set an NBA Finals record for 3-pointers with his 23rd against the Miami Heat on Sunday night.
Green broke Ray Allen's 2008 mark with his fourth 3-pointer of the game early in the second half of Game 5. Green was shooting 68 percent from 3-point range in the series after breaking the record.

We nearly live in a world in which Danny Green is the NBA Finals MVP and LeBron James is a lonely stat-sheet stuffer with a broken jumper.
We don't all need to board up the windows just yet, but with one or two games left in the 2013 NBA Finals, this may be a good time to take inventory of your batteries and canned goods. Reality has been bent up and distorted to the level of...

The 2013 NBA Finals are being billed as a battle of the "Big Three" of the Heat and Spurs. And while you need a superstar(s) to win a title, you also need a strong supporting cast. So The Hoops Manifesto will look to shine some light on these less heralded players with our "The Non-Big Three Star of the Game" award given...
In front of former record holder, Ray Allen, and against the former record holder’s team, the Miami Heat, Danny Green set a new NBA Finals record for three-pointers in Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Danny Green of the San Antonio Spurs was racing back to the locker room to watch the Sprint Halftime Report (I assume) and almost had his life ended when a CHILD NINJA appeared from out of nowhere and almost took him out. I don’t know why there is a child ninja roaming the halls of the AT&T Center, but he’s there, and you’ll never see him coming. (via Ride The Pine)- Follow...
WAS THERE CONTACT?
Chris Bosh had several huge defensive plays at the end of Game 6 to help the Miami Heat pull out the thrilling three point victory over the San Antonio Spurs. Good no call by the refs on this Bosh block of Green. Bosh also had a huge swat of Tony Parker near the end of overtime.
In some attempts to be humorous and even complementary, people in the public light can make some fairly silly mistakes. I’m not saying that Sean Elliott’s quote about Tony Parker is the worst thing ever, but he probably won’t be welcome in Paris anytime soon.
Sean Elliott, who once returned to basketball after a kidney transplant, was giving Tony Parker a compliment on toughness...
The San Antonio Spurs are dangerous enough when their combination of youth and experience allows them to employ a variety of offensive tactics against an opposing team like the Miami Heat. When their twice-waived free agent addition sets an NBA record for 3-pointers made and his 35-year-old counterpart drops a season-high 24 points with 10 assists, it’s all but inevitable that...
