Spurs Set NBA Records, Turn on the Heat in Blistering 1st Quarter of NBA Finals

It’s one thing to have a game plan, it’s another to execute it and execute it flawlessly at that.

In a nutshell, the San Antonio Spurs’ game plan is based on movement, making the right pass(es) and shoot it every time you’re open in your designated areas on the court. Once you start taking those shots without hesitation and hitting those shots, it makes the passes easier which in turns gets your teammates open looks more often.

The San Antonio Spurs were dialed in game 3 of the NBA Finals, scoring 41 points, and shooting 87% from the field. It was a video that can be made into a “How to Play Basketball Video at a High Level.” Here’s a preview of the instructional video for you to check out:

San Antonio set a couple NBA Finals records last night including field goal percentage in the first quarter of the NBA Finals (86.7%) and the highest field goal percentage at halftime (75.8%). At one point, the Spurs had hit 19 of their 21 shots.

“That’ll never happen again.” said Popovich, “That’s crazy.”

No doubt that the odds another NBA team will surpass the Spurs’ record efficiency last night is slim.

It’s no longer a surprise, but it wasn’t the Spurs big three of Tim Duncan, Tony Parker, and Manu Ginobili that did most of the damage against the Miami Heat last night; it was Kawhi Leonard, Danny Green, Boris Diaw, Patty Mills, and Gregg Popovich’s deadly coaching.
