Spurs’ Ginobili: ‘They just ran over us’
It took the Heat the better part of seven quarters, but they finally gave the Spurs a taste of their awesome open-court power with a 33-5 run to blow Game 2 open and even the Finals at 1-1. They did so by feasting on 17 turnovers for 19 points — a huge turnaround from Game 1, in which the Spurs tied a Finals record with four turnovers leading to eight Heat points. The Heat improved to 4-0 following Game 1 losses in the LeBron James era.
“They just ran us over,” (Manu) Ginobili said. “The pressure really got us on our heels. Of course, if you look at the result, being 1-1, it’s not bad. But you don’t want to have to play like this in the NBA Finals. You don’t want to give them much confidence, and you feeling bad about yourself.”
