Game 2 saw LeBron James defer for much of the first half as he struggled with his shot. Once he got going in the second half, though, Miami was off to the races, taking off on a 15-0 run during the last minute-plus of the third quarter and into the first few minutes of the fourth.
After stuffing Splitter and celebrating for a few seconds with the American Airlines Arena crowd, James raced up the court to join his teammates on offense, eventually finding Ray Allen in the right corner for an open three. On San Antonio’s next possession, James deflected a pass from Tony Parker intended for Danny Green. The ball ended up with Mike Miller, who was credited with the steal, and James was already off to the races. A quick feed ahead from Miller to James ended with a two-hand slam and a celebratory swing on the rim.
