Spurs Host Heat In NBA Finals Game One

The curtain raises on the NBA Finals tonight. The San Antonio Spurs host the defending champion Miami Heat in Game One of the best-of-seven series at the AT&T Center. It's a rematch of last year's Finals, won by the Heat in seven games. Miami has won two straight championships and is gunning for the first NBA "Three-peat" since the Lakers won consecutive titles in 2000, 2001 and 2002. San Antonio is seeking its fifth championship overall and first since 2007. Spurs guard Tony Parker says he is ready to play after injuring his ankle in Game Six of the Western Conference finals. Spurs forward Tim Duncan is a three-time NBA Finals MVP, while Heat forward LeBron James has been named Finals MVP each of the last two seasons.
