Duncan, Spurs collapse down the stretch<
MIAMI (AP) _ Tim Duncan was delivering a vintage performance, and the San Antonio Spurs were streaking to the franchise's fifth championship.
Then the 37-year-old forward ran out of gas, and the Spurs collapsed down the stretch like they so rarely have before.
Duncan had 30 points and 14 rebounds in the first three quarters, but was scoreless and grabbed just three boards in the fourth quarter and overtime of San Antonio's 103-100 overtime loss to the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night.
The Spurs led by 10 points at the start of the fourth quarter and by five with 28 seconds to play. But Duncan missed all five of his shots in the fourth quarter and overtime.
Game 7 is on Thursday night in Miami.
Allen comes up huge for Heat<
MIAMI (AP) _ Ray Allen lost his record in these NBA Finals. He still has a chance at what he wants most: A second championship.
It's why he came to Miami.
And on the final Heat possession of regulation of Game 6, he did what he does better than anyone in NBA history, hit 3-pointers.
Allen's 3 with 5.2 seconds left in the fourth quarter capped a huge Miami rally, and the Heat found a way in overtime to hold off the San Antonio Spurs for a 103-100 win.
So the 2013 NBA championship comes down to one game: Winner take all, Game 7, Thursday night. And without the guard who Miami talked out of taking more money from Boston last summer and luring him to South Florida instead, the Heat might not have gotten there.
