SAN ANTONIO — Danny Green scored 27 points, Gary Neal added 24 and the San Antonio Spurs set an NBA Finals record with 16 3-pointers in a 113-77 victory over the Miami Heat on Tuesday night that gave them a 2-1 series lead.
Green hit seven of nine 3s, Neal was six for 10 from deep and Tim Duncan chipped in 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Spurs, who responded to a 19-point drubbing in Game 2 with a blowout of their own.
The Spurs flummoxed four-time MVP LeBron James for a third straight game, holding him to 15 points on 7-of-21 shooting. James also had 11 rebounds and five assists, but he missed 11 of his first 14 shots and never looked comfortable against San Antonio’s swarming defense.
Game 4 in the best-of-seven series is on Thursday night in San Antonio.
