Spurs Win NBA Title, Dethrone King James

SAN ANTONIO (AP) — The San Antonio Spurs are NBA champions for the fifth time since 1999 following their third straight convincing win over the Miami Heat.

Kawhi Leonard delivered 22 points and 10 rebounds as the Spurs ripped Miami 104-87 to win the finals in five games. Patty Mills provided a big spark off the bench, going 5-for-8 from 3-point range and scoring 17 points in just over 18 minutes. Manu Ginobili was one of five Spurs with at least 14 points, finishing with 19 on 6 of 11 shooting.

Miami jumped out to a 22-6 lead and appeared poised to avenge its two lopsided losses at home, but the Spurs immediately went on a 9-0 run to close the gap before outscoring the Heat 25-11 in the second quarter. San Antonio’s lead grew to 21 points late in the third quarter, allowing Spurs fans to enjoy the final 15 minutes without much worry.

LeBron James had 31 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, but the rest of Miami’s starting five combined for just 32 points. The Heat starters shot just 39 percent, with Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and Ray Allen combining to go 11-34.
