San Antonio has a two games to none lead in the NBA Finals after its 103-92 win over Cleveland on Sunday night. In the 2005 finals, the Spurs won the first two games against Detroit but had to go seven to win the title. Last year, Miami lost Games 1 and 2 in Dallas before going home to Florida and winning three straight and then beating the Mavericks on their home floor for their first championship.
Tony Parker scored 30 points, Manu Ginobili had 25 and Tim Duncan added 23 and San Antonio took a two games to none lead in the NBA Finals with a 103-92 win over Cleveland on Sunday night. The Spurs' Big 3 combined for 43 points - 10 more than the Cavs - in the first half.
Cleveland's LeBron James played less than three minutes in the first quarter of Sunday night's game because of foul trouble. The Spurs built a 28-point lead in the first half en route to a 103-92 win over the Cavaliers and a two games to none lead in the NBA Finals. James finished with 25 points after being limited to 14 in his finals debut.
Denver guard J.R. Smith remained hospitalized Sunday after being thrown from his vehicle during a crash Saturday night, but his injuries aren't believed to be as serious as first thought. Smith and a passenger, Andre Bell, 21, of East Orange, were seriously injured Saturday when the sport utility vehicle Smith was driving went through a stop sign and overturned after colliding with a car at about 5:30 p.m. in Millstone Township, state police said.
Denver reserve forward DerMarr Johnson was charged with resisting arrest and interfering with police during a disturbance outside a nightclub. Police said they used a taser to calm the 6-foot-9 player. Johnson and two women were arrested, booked and released early Saturday.
