Tim Duncan and the San Antonio Spurs didn’t lose their lead throughout the entire game, as they hosted LeBron James and the Miami Heat tonight.

The Spurs top scorers of the night were Duncan with 23, Tony Parker 17 and Boris Diaw 16.

For Miami, James poured in 19 points to go along with Dwyane Wade’s 16 and Chris Bosh’s 24.

Though they may not have won the ring, Kawhi Leonard played some stellar defense on James in the 2013 Finals; and he did so again tonight. James shot 6-of-18, courtesy of Leonard.

The Heat haven’t beaten the Spurs in the AT&T Center during the regular season since James decided to go to South Beach in 2010.

Parker looked injury-free tonight, playing the whole game except two minutes in the first quarter.

Miami may have went on a run in the second half to keep Spurs fans on the edge of their seats, but it wasn’t anything Timmy D and company couldn’t handle.

Los Spurs beat El Heat.
