MIAMI (AP) — As anticipation builds for the NBA Finals rematch between the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat lets take a look at how the two teams stack up against each other.
GAME 1 FACTS
The series starts in San Antonio on Thursday night and the Spurs have never lost Game 1 of an NBA Finals. And Miami star LeBron James has never been part of a Game 1 road victory, in any round.
Maybe. Maybe not.
San Antonio — which has never played an NBA Finals game while facing a deficit in the series — has won each of its five Game 1’s in the title round, doing so by an average of 10.4 points per game.
Including his time in Cleveland, James has been on teams that opened playoff series on the road seven times. They’re 0-7, losing by an average of 12.3 points.
