The air conditioning was broken during Game One of the NBA Finals at the AT&T Center, and the Spurs pulled out a 110-95 win over the Miami Heat. San Antonio closed the game on a 31-9 run and outscored the Heat 16-3 when James left the game for good with cramps with 3:59 left in the fourth quarter. Tim Duncan posted 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Tony Parker chipped in with 19 points and eight assists. Manu Ginobili put up a double-double with 16 points and 11 assists. Danny Green led the charge during the Spurs' huge fourth quarter, scoring 11 of his 13 points. LeBron posted 25 points and six rebounds, but only played 33 minutes. He had been averaging slightly over 38 minutes in the postseason. Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade combined to score 27 points. Game Two is Sunday night in San Antonio.
