SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The San Antonio Spurs have found a way to slow down LeBron James. That still might not be enough.
James has averaged just 17.5 points and shot 41.4 percent in the first two games of the NBA Finals. Those numbers are well below his season averages of 26.8 points and 56.5 percent shooting that helped him win his fourth MVP award.
But the Spurs squeaked out a win in Game 1 in Miami, then got blown out in Game 2 on Sunday night.
Manu Ginobili says it's going to take even more than slowing James down if the Spurs are going to win their fifth championship.
Game 3 of the best-of-seven series is Tuesday night in San Antonio.
