SAN ANTONIO -- The San Antonio Spurs won their fifth NBA championship, beating the Miami Heat 104-87 on Sunday night to win the series in five games.
Kawhi Leonard had 22 points and 10 rebounds for the Spurs, who added this title to the ones they won in 1999, 2003, '05 and '07. They nearly had another last year, but couldn't hold off the Heat and lost in seven games.
The rematch was no match at all.
San Antonio rebounded from an early 16-point deficit by outscoring the Heat 37-13 from the start of the second quarter to midway in the third.

Any rioting yet?
I was glad to see the Heat go down.
Loved watching Obama loving douche bag LeChoke go down in flames..Congrats to the Spurs..from a lifelong Laker fan
I’m not a Heat fan, but their fans are generally well behaved, unlike those in more “sophisticated” cites, like Boston, Philadelphia, Seattle, etc....I doubt you’ see buildings trashed or cars burned in Miami tonight.
The only thing that would make this sweeter would be if La Bran James sustained a career ending injury that somehow bankrupted him as well.
Be nice now. LOL!
Why would they? They are licking their wounds , not whooping it up!
Will Carmelo Anthony sign with the Heat?
If so, this could be a short-lived defense for the Spurs title....
I’m sorry, I have decided to take my civility to C-Town! Piss on that jacka$$!
You may have noticed that in many cities the fans of losing teams take out their frustrations on other peoples’ property.
I have see that the fans of winning teams often riot.
On the Southwest Side of town near South Park Mall, Spurs fans are celebrating their fifth title with their automobiles.
Fans leaving restaurants at S.W. Military and Interstate 35 are waving flags, honking horns and cheering with passersby. Fans on motorcycles are even adding some noise to the celebration.
People are also standing on the side of the road encouraging 18-wheelers to honk their horns.
Truck beds filled with spurs fans are on the road, and some are even firing fireworks into the night sky.
That was horrible and you should be embarrassed. He is an athlete, not a mass murderer. I hope your kids do not see that comment.
No rioting. This is Texas, not a northern state. Local news showing tons and tons of crowds.
Spurs didn’t just beat Miami, they demolished them - three games in a row.
And everyone was cheering for them - why?
“Not one, not two, not three ....” Yeah, that arrogance.
It’s a bit early for riots yet....
Did you forget the sarc tag? We don’t do that crap in San Antonio.
F’m. Don’t like ‘em never did. Not even when he was a pretentious High School kid in Akron.
People have horrible things happen to them all the time. Might as well be people I don’t like.
One reason the Heat lost is because they had no bench players. If Melo signs, they’ll have even less of a bench.
Spurs won because they had a great bench, and a great starting lineup.
I beg your pardon!! The only “riots” in Boston were college students from out of state looking for a reason to party when the Red Sox finally won in 2004 And the Zoo Massers (also lot of out of State) when the Patriots won the Superbowl.
Celtic fans are enthusiastic but not frightful!
Spurs also have a lot better coaching.
Everyone expected Miami to cruise to a three-peat, but the Spurs obviously planned for them brilliantly. That’s a smart organization.
“People have horrible things happen to them all the time. Might as well be people I dont like.”
YEAH! From Cleveburg!
Really? Would you say that to him in person? No? Then don’t say it here.
I lived close to San Antonio for many years, so I have to kind of pull for the Spurs. It was bad enough I had to endure the Kings beating my Blackhawks this year. I don't want to go through that experience again, but at least the Hawks won it last year, and they will new back :-)
will be back
At least not by Spurs fans. Heat fans might be pissed that their team lost, though.
We shoot rioters in Texas and a significant portion of the state has CCW, while another significant portion has firearms in their vehicles ‘just in case.’
Chance of riot? Small. Very small.
Now, in Miami.... that could be another story.
They’re disappointed, for sure, but no trouble yet that I can see. Local news is on now. All quiet.
I think Heat fans knew it was inevitable for a couple of days, so it already sunk in even before tonight’s game.
The night is early yet in Miami. Still, they’re not anywhere near as likely to riot there as Los Angeles or Sacramento, etc., etc.5
Those young ladies look sauced.
Even the players seemed resigned to it in the interviews over the past couple of days. It was kind of weird.
LeBron James got his start playing high school basketball about 15 miles north of me, in Akron, Ohio. I tolerated his jump from Cleveland to Miami, but his mouth has gotten the best of him. His tirades against the Clippers owner for a ‘nothing’ comment that should have been private made him persona non grata in my world. He showed himself a ‘racist’ in the same way that Barry-O and Holder are racists. He has continued to shoot off his mouth about too many things. Maybe he can tuck his tail between his legs and move ‘regressively’ to the man he used to be. I am glad the Heat lost. I don’t care two hoots about the Spurs.
When LeBron leaves in the off-season and the Heat go back to sucking again, people in Miami will be going, “Who are the Heat?”
Yup. Will there be partying? Sure. Probably a ton of drinking? Yup. Riots? Nope.
I agree with being put off by his arrogance and stepping into the Sterling controversy. That was outrageous. But I do not wish career ending injuries on anyone (except, of course, murderers like Aaron Hernandez). Save the bad karma for those who are truly evil. That would include any leader of N. Korea, Castro, mass murderers, the Clintons, Obama, Sharpton, and Harry Reid.
I could not be happier for this team.
I have! He is every bit of a jerk in private as he is in public. An ass through and through.
Doug, you and I are on the same page. You read my comment. I want only good for LeBron. Maybe this experience will make a ‘real man’ out of him. Though he is a ‘racist’ he is not in the evil mode of Al, Jesse, Barry, Eric, Harry, Nancy or Bill and Hill.
Class beats Crass EVERY TIME!
FR needs a like button for posts like this lol
Gee, I would really appreciate it. What with you being so in with the Big Guy as you seem to be saying. I was just hoping for Karma and fate. A good prayer may go a long way.
I am not PRAYING or even HOPING for La Jackass to get an injury and financial disaster. But let’s just say, better him than someone else.
If it has to happen to someone, and it most certainly does all the time, why not have it be him.
Last I heard, bad things happen. They happen to you, they happen to me, hell they might as well happen to him.
While we are at it: I have been of the opinion that a massive stroke or a tumble down the stairs of Air Force One may solve many of the problems that we have had with the present Commander in Chief.
Heck, Obama never holds onto the hand rails and he always runs down the stairs in an unsafe manner. Also he is a known smoker and dog eater and I heard they have allot of cholesterol.
People Die every day. It might as well be people I don’t like. Too many of the ones I do like are already dead.
If that makes me a bad person, So be it! There are plenty of bad people in the World. I would say we have more than our fair share. Ever seen a Democrat Convention or a meeting of Planned Parenthood? Obama and La Jackass have been to both. Obama even did time in a Madrassa with the Head Hackers.
As for the particulars, it really doesn’t matter. The outcome Is the same for all of us. It is all about timing and technique. Whether his children are there or not is truly irrelevant.
