Halftime Report on the San Antonio Spurs
Tim Duncan leads the team in scoring, finally missing his first shot with one minute left to go in the half. He has 15 points on 6-7 shooting. Tony Parker has been solid as well, chipping in 10 points as well as 3 assists.
The Spurs shot 50% from both the field, and the three-point line. The Spurs have more free throw attempts than the Heat, 14-8.
However, the Spurs have kept Miami in this game with their sloppy play. San Antonio committed 10 turnovers throughout the first half, and that needs to change if they want to keep this lead.
Both Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green are scoreless after one half, and they'll need to pick it up on the offensive end in order to boost the Spurs to a game one victory.
Halftime Report for the Miami Heat
LeBron James leads the team with 13 points shooting 5-9 from the field. Dwyane Wade has 2 points while shooting 5-8 from the field. Wade has been looking good, driving the lane with authority. Chris Bosh has 10 points along with 7 boards.
Off the Bench, Ray Allen has 10 points including 3 three-pointers. However, he has missed the last three wide-open looks he's had. Key words though, are wide-open. The Spurs have to do a better job of closing in on the Miami shooters.
However, the Miami Heta haven't been without their struggles offensively either. A sloppy game all over, the Heat had nine turnovers after the first half.
Miami is also getting out-rebounded, 22-17. If they want to have a chance to win this game, they need to start crashing the boards harder.
Mario Chalmers also isn't helping the team any. Although he has three steals, he also has three fouls, and had to leave the second quarter at the 7:00 mark because of foul trouble. He needs to start playing excellent defense, but without fouling in the process.
