The Miami Heat have won their second straight NBA Championship. The Heat knocked off the San Antonio Spurs 95-88 last night in Game Seven of the NBA Finals in Miami to capture their third title in franchise history. The Spurs were seeking their fifth championship. LaBron James, who was named Finals MVP for the second straight year, hit a clutch jumper and a pair of free throws in the final minute to help Miami seal the victory after the Spurs made a late run, trailing 90-to-88 with 2 minutes remaining. James finished with 37 points and 12 rebounds. Dwyane Wade also a double-double for the Heat with 23 points and 10 rebounds while Shane Battier iced the Spurs off the bench with six three pointers on 6-for-8 shooting from behind the arc.
Tim Duncan came through with 24 points and 12 rebounds for San Antonio, but missed a point blank layup with under a minute left that would have tied the game. The Heat are the 12th team to win the title in back-to-back years and the first since the Los Angeles Lakers in 2010.
