It was late game heroics from San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker that allowed them to step up in Game 1 and take down the defending champion Miami Heat squad in front of their home court. The way that Parker was able to get the dagger in Miami puts all of the momentum in the Spurs corner and will force the Heat to come out strong and put the first game behind them.
If Miami is unable to focus on what is ahead this series, they could find themselves in some serious trouble heading in to games 3 and 4 in San Antonio against a very seasoned and veteran squad.
It will be big for Miami to pick up Game 2 and head back to the Spurs home court with the series tied or else the mental hurdle could become too much to overcome.
