Spurs best rival Heat in overtime.

The Spurs had a showdown with the Miami Heat, for old times sake and for the love of this game, topping D-Wade (39 points) in overtime 112-107. Both teams were playing stupendously, showcasing their respective talents, like Goran Dragic's elite passing skills (17pts/13 assists) for open Luol Deng 3's and leadership shooting prowess by Tony Parker in the 4th quarter.

The Heat got a 18-7 run in the second quarter, but two threes by Boris Diaw kept SA close at halftime. As usual, the Spurs rallied out of the gate at halftime and took the lead back. Kawhi Leonard and Danny Green's defense led to easy thunderous jams by both in the fast break after steals, but Miami hung around, tying the game and forcing overtime. It was there that SA would outshoot Miami at the FT line and Parker would block Wade's last shot.

Tony had 28 points and 6 assists, winning the game with two free throws despite missing a potential game winner at the buzzer of regulation. Kawhi Leonard got 26 and a big dunk in overtime, Manu Ginobili had a jam for 14 points and Tim Duncan had a double-double.
