Gary Neal and Danny Green listened to their coach and kept on shooting.
Shaking off a humiliating blowout for the biggest game in San Antonio since 2007 - blame that on the gridlock that made Tim Duncan and Tony Parker late to the AT&T Center - the Spurs kept giving LeBron James fits in the NBA Finals and ran away to a 2-1 series lead over the Miami Heat with a 113-77 victory Tuesday night.
"Feel confident, let 'em fly, get your name in the paper," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich barked during a timeout in the second quarter, when Game 3 was still in doubt.
Green scored 27 points and Neal had 24. They combined for 13 3-pointers.
Game 4 is Thursday night.
