It took LeBron James the first half to heat up for Game 2 of the 2014 NBA Finals, but he was certainly the defensive and offensive leader for the Miami Heat tonight and carried the team until the end.

Chris Bosh also had the shooting touch tonight, shooting six-for-eleven, finishing with 18 points and coming up clutch late in the fourth quarter. Dwyane Wade had a similar night as LeBron, as he also needed the first half to get his legs under him, but ended up with 14 points, going five-of-nine from the field.
On the Spurs side, their Big Three came up huge. Tony Parker and Tim Duncan scored 21 and 18 points, respectively; while Manu Ginobili led San Antonio’s bench with 19. Kawhi Leonard had a relatively quiet night offensively but was tasked to guard James all night on the other end of the ball, though he did end up fouling out in the last minutes of the game.
Duncan destroyed the boards, grabbing 15, and he is now tied for the record of the most double-doubles in playoff history with 157, tying Magic Johnson.
