Spurs following Mavs' 3-point road map to beat Heat

Dm_130618_dm_130618_nba_danny_green_hothandIt may feel like 20 years since your Dallas Mavericks won their first NBA title but it's actually a mere two seasons.

Tonight, the San Antonio Spurs can defeat the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals to win yet another title; the way they are doing it looks very similar to the way the Mavs did - fast ball movement, and sometimes serious shooting from three that is far superior than what they did during the season. 

During the 2010-'11 regular season, the Mavs shot .365 from 3-point range.
During this regular season, the Spurs shot .376 from 3-point range.

Now look at the comparisons between the Mavs' 3-point shooting against the Heat in '11 and the Spurs in '13.

Game 3: 8 of 21. L
Game 4: 4 of 19. W
Game 5: 13 of 19. W
Game 6: 11 of 26. W

SPURS v. HEAT 3 point shooting

Game 2: 10 of 20. L
Game 3: 16 of 32. W
