The San Antonio Spurs have a chance to finish off the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. In order to do that, they'll need to do something neither team has yet accomplished in the back-and-forth series: win two games in a row.

9:00 PM ET, June 18, 2013
The Heat, who finished the regular season winning 37 of their last 40 games, were pushed to the brink of elimination by a loss in Game 5 to San Antonio on Sunday. Now, LeBron and the Big 3 are back in Miami to try and force a winner-take-all Game 7.
“I have to come up big for sure in Game 6,” James said after the loss on Sunday, via Sports Illustrated. “But I believe we all have to play at a high level in order to keep the series going.”
Will the Heat be able to shut down Spurs sharpshooter Danny Green, like Chris Bosh said they will? Will San Antonio's Big 3 shine on the road? Or will the Heat once again avoid losing two games in a row?

Wade was bad offensively tonight, but late in the game, he was rotating really well defensively and causing SA some problems. Credit him.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) 4 years ago

Let us all recall: Battier's banked-in 3, Parker's prayer 3, two crazy Splitter shots, etc. So many crazy/random/ridiculous/fun plays.— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_NBA) 4 years ago

Since 1986, there have been 14 triple-doubles in the NBA Finals. LeBron James now has four of them. Double that of any other player.— Couper Moorhead (@CoupNBA) 3 years ago
