Ginobli Leads Spurs Past Heat To Go Up 3-2 in Finals
The San Antonio Spurs are heading to Miami with two shots at winning their fifth NBA title -- and fourth in the Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili (jih-NOH'-bleez) era.
Parker and Ginobili combined for 50 points as the Spurs took a 3-2 series lead with a 114-104 win over the Miami Heat last night. The Spurs shot 60 percent from the field.
Parker played over 35 minutes, shot 10-for-14 from the field and delivered a team-high 26 points. Ginobili also had the hot hand while making a rare start, hitting eight of his 14 shots and finishing with 24 points and 10 assists.
The Spurs can wrap up their fifth championship Tuesday in Miami. If the Heat win that one, Game 7 will be Thursday night in Miami.
