Spurs break open game in 3rd, run away from Heat


By Tim Price, for NBA.com

SAN ANTONIO (NBA.com exclusive) -- Maybe it was the back-to-back -- playing in San Antonio the night after trying to rally from 16 points down on the previous night in New Orleans -- that caught up to the Heat.

Or maybe it was the frustration of seeing the Spurs go to the free-throw line 10 times in the second quarter that blew Miami's game Thursday against the Spurs.

Whatever is to blame, the Heat watched a spirited 26-26 tie after the first quarter turn into their worst loss of the season. By the end of it the Spurs forced the Heat into less than 20 points in both the third and fourth quarters and walked off with an easy 108-78 victory that had Miami coach Eric Spoelstra visibly gritting his teeth after spending more than 20 minutes in the locker room after the game at AT&T Center.

"The Spurs had it and we didn't, and they throttled us," Spoelstra said. "We got what we deserved tonight. It was a very disappointing loss."

For the Spurs (19-11) it was -- cosmetically, at least -- a significant win. San Antonio has won 10 of 12 games, but the Spurs had not beaten a team with a winning record in more than a month (Nov. 27 at Houston). In the interim, they had lost five games (three at home) against teams at more than a .500 winning percentage.

"It was a good 48-minute effort," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said. "I think we caught a break because [the Heat] had a tough game last night. They had to expend a lot of energy against New Orleans. To play again tonight is tough."

The Heat (16-14) looked little like the team that attempted to rally back from 16 points early in the fourth quarter the night before in New Orleans. They ended up losing by four, which snapped a three-game winning streak.

Included in that streak was an 80-70 victory over Utah. That 80 points was the previous season low for the Heat.

They trailed by 24 heading into the fourth quarter, and the deficit got to as many as 34 after that. So Dwyane Wade (6-for-18 and 16 points) was kept on the bench for the entire final quarter, as was Jermaine O'Neal. He didn't return after committing a turnover and then not continuing on a baseline cut that resulted in Wade throwing the ball out of bounds for another turnover just 2 minutes into the third quarter.

It wasted Miami's good start in the first quarter, which was highlighted by 14 points and 7-for-10 shooting from Michael Beasley. He had that in the first 7:10 of the game as the Heat led by six. But from that point until the end of the third quarter Beasley was 4-for-8 for eight points, including a third quarter when he went 1-for-3 and the Heat scored 13 points.

With 20 points at half, Beasley finished with 26.

What happened? Beasley took a deep breath, then answered.

""I honestly can't tell you," he said. "I don't handle the ball."

The game got away in the second quarter, even after Miami showed it could handle a punch from Tim Duncan, who scored 13 points on 6-of-7 shooting in the first quarter.

In the second, Duncan took only one shot. Both teams were shooting almost 55 percent from the floor, but the Spurs went to the foul line 10 times and made nine shots. Miami was 2-for-4 from the line.

"This team obviously was frustrated," Beasley said. "Everything was going their way. They weren't missing shots. They were getting every call."

Late in the third quarter Miami had been called for 16 fouls compared to five for San Antonio. By the quarter's end, San Antonio was 18-for-20 from the line while Miami was 4-for-8.

"We didn't react well to it," Spoelstra said. "They were being the aggressors. They deserved to go to the line, and that's the way it is."

The Heat couldn't take advantage of the Spurs' 20 turnovers (Miami had 17). And they couldn't stop Duncan (10-for-13 shooting for 23 points and 10 rebounds), Manu Ginobili (18 points) and Tony Parker (15 points, nine assists).

"They just blitzed us, and we couldn't get in any kind of rhythm," Spoelstra said. "We couldn't stop them. The Spurs jumped us. They're playing well."
