The Spurs Just Completed The Best Shooting Half In NBA Finals History

Well, holy shit.

The Spurs dropped 71 points on the Heat in the first half of Game 3 tonight. That's not a typo. San Antonio statistically pulled off the greatest shooting half in the history of the NBA Finals. Look at all of this green.

Kawhi Leonard started the game off with a perfect 6 of 6 from the field before missing a three. He finished the half with 18 points. Danny Green went into halftime with 13 points and a 100% field goal percentage. At one point in the second quarter, the Spurs were shooting 90.5% from the field for the game. Seriously.

The weirdest part—or funniest part, if you hate the Heat—is that LeBron James is having a solid game despite this. He shot 6 for 9 from the field with 16 points, five assists, and just two turnovers. Miami finished the first half with a respectable 50 points, but San Antonio was just unreal.


Of course, there's still another half to play, but with Gregg Popovich, the Spurs have never lost a playoff game when holding a halftime lead of at least 20 points. We'll see.
