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.
