With their backs against the wall, the Miami Heat thrived once again Tuesday night, defeating the San Antonio Spurs and staving off elimination.
The Heat pulled a 103-100 victory, forcing a decisive Game 7 on Thursday.
Mario Chalmers had a breakout game, scoring 20 points. LeBron James added 32 as the Heat mounted a 4th quarter comeback and tough overtime to even the best-of-seven series at three games each.
The two teams have traded wins since the beginning of the series, and it now boils down to a single game on Thursday. That pattern will have to be broken if the Heat are to win their second consecutive championship.
