Spurs Cut Down Nets to Win NBA Title
With it all on the line, Tim Duncan did it all.
The San Antonio Spurs won their second title as Duncan put on one of the great performances in NBA Finals history, approaching a quadruple-double in an 88-77 dismantling of the New Jersey Nets.
You want scoring? Duncan had 21 points, including seven in a surge at the end of the first half that prevented the Nets from running away early.
You want rebounding? Duncan had 20, his fourth 20-rebound game of the postseason. In the fourth quarter, he seemed to sweep away every miss by the Nets.
