The Spurs were hot in the 4th quarter. I don’t mean hot like LeBron sitting on the sidelines with a leg cramp or everybody else in the building because the A/C was broke but hot like NBA Jam’s “he’s on fire” hot or Dan Patrick’s “en fuego” hot in the final minutes of a GM1 win vs the Heat.
The Spurs ended the game on a 31-9 run behind some hot shooting by Danny Green – who only seems to play in the NBA Finals. As a team, the Spurs went 14 of 15 from the floor including 6 of 6 from downtown.
“It was tough on both teams,” Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. “They were pretty dead. We tried to get guys in and out. … It was really hot out there.”
“It sucks not being out there for your team, especially at this point in the season,” James said.
“I think it felt like a punch in the gut when you see your leader limping like that back to the bench,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.
