We’re through two quarters in Miami, with the Spurs trailing the Heat by 5.

For San Antonio, Danny Green has been absolutely on fire with 12 points, all on three pointers. Tony Parker has 10 points and four assists, and Kawhi Leonard leads the team with nine rebounds. Mario Chalmers and Dwyane Wade lead the Heat with 10 points each, while LeBron James has been held to four points with four assists and one rebound.

The Spurs shooting has been incredible from beyond the arch, as they’re shooting 70% from three. But the defense hasn’t been there to help out. The Heat are shooting 51% from the field, 50% from beyond the arch and have only committed three turnovers.

Here’s a look at San Antonio’s shot chart in the first half:

Here’s hoping that the Spurs start making their shots around the rim and from midrange. Two quarters down, two more to go. Go Spurs Go.
