The San Antonio Spurs responded to their Game 2 beatdown by distributing one of their own in Game 3.

During the  second half of Game 3, the Miami Heat were lifeless as they watched the Spurs set an NBA Finals record for 3-point buckets with 16.

The 113-77 thrashing was spearheaded by big nights from both Danny Green and Gary Neal.

Green chalked up with 27 points while Neal contributed 24.

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich turned the tables on the Heat stifling LeBron James to just 15 points as he shot only 33-percent.

Game 4 and Game 5 are in San Antonio. Miami needs to regroup for at least one more game to take this series back home.

The Spurs are now up 2-1.
