Spurs’ Green sets NBA Finals record for 3-pointers
Now he’s a big reason why the MVP’s chances of a second consecutive championship are in serious trouble.
He finished with 24 points and went 6 of 10 from long range in Game 5, and the San Antonio Spurs are one win away from their first title since 2007 with a 114-104 win Sunday night.
“I never thought in a million years I’d have this record. But there’s still some business to be done,” Green said.
He is 25 for 38 from long range in the Finals, having hit at least four 3-pointers in every game against Miami except one.
Yet even Allen _ the NBA’s all-time leader in 3-pointers _ didn’t shoot with this kind of precision in the Finals. Allen, who plays for the Heat and has 11 3s this series, shot 52 percent in that six-game win against the Los Angeles Lakers.
Green still has at least one game left to add to his total. Game 6 is Tuesday night in Miami.
The Spurs edged Miami in Game 1 and must win another to hoist a fifth championship in the Tim Duncan era.
“When you do it for 82 games, the only thing left is to see if you can do it when the real lights come on in playoff time,” Popovich said. “He’s pretty much answered that question.”
Now the 25-year-old has emerged as the unlikely key for the Spurs.
