The Miami Heat will take on the San Antonio Spurs in a rematch of their epic 2013 NBA Finals series. The rematch was set late last night when the Spurs stole Game 6 of the Western Conference Finals from the Oklahoma City Thunder in overtime by a score of 112-107.
Nearly every game of the series prior to last night’s Game 6 was a blowout for the home team. The Thunder hoped to stave off elimination and force a Game 7 in San Antonio, but the Spurs proved to be too much too handle.
Tim Duncan proved to be the x-factor for the Spurs last night, racking in 19 points and 15 rebounds. In overtime, Duncan led all scorers with seven clutch points.
With time running out in OT, NBA MVP Kevin Durant had the ball in his hand down three. Durant got a clear look to the basket, but missed the three to tie, sealing the Thunder’s fate.
The game was easily the best of the series and one of the best of the enthralling playoffs. Below, check out the Game 6 highlights in the greatest way possible, through the NBA’s phantom camera.
