  • The Spurs are 15-3 in best-of-7 series when leading 2-1 in the Gregg Popovich era.

  • LeBron James' seven turnovers are his most in an NBA Finals game. His teams are now 2-7 in the NBA Finals when he has at least five turnovers (2-3 with Heat).

  • Gregg Popovich's philosophy is to close out quarters and more specifically end of halves. In Game 2, the Spurs shot 32.5% in the 2nd AND 4th quarter combined. That was their worst shooting percentage of this postseason. To put this in perspective, in the Popovich Era (since 1996-97) the Spurs have led the NBA in combined 2nd AND 4th quarter shooting percentage with 46.2% (min 100 games played as a team). The NBA average during that span is 44.6%.
