Score: Heat 94, Sixers 73. Heat hold a 2-0 lead in the best-of-seven series. How it happened: The Heat, fueled by Dwyane Wade's almost manic energy and intensity, blew the doors off the Sixers with early execution and defense. The Sixers were 4-for-20 from the field in the first quarter. Key play: The tip? The Sixers never really threatened, though the party started for the Heat when LeBron James rose above the square and pounded though an alley-oop fastbreak dunk from Mario Chalmers to make it 37-23 with 5:09 to play in the second quarter.

SAN ANTONIO - Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili sat in mostly stunned silence, all that playoff experience not preparing them for how they felt after two games. They were satisfied, yet shaken. The San Antonio Spurs had taken home-court advantage away from the Miami Heat, but then the reigning champions took them apart. So as they prepared to bring the NBA Finals back home for the first time in 7 years, the veterans struggled with how they were supposed to sum up their situation.

MIAMI - This past season, as horrific as the 19-63 record may indicate it was, will not be swept under the carpet by first-year Sixers coach Brett Brown. He will not hide from it, won't deny it and won't try to defend it. It was exactly what he expected when he signed his 4-year, guaranteed contract in August. Perhaps the win total was a little south of his expectations, but that was never the mark by which he was going to judge the season. So now that his first season is behind him after last night's 100-87 win against the Miami Heat, the excitement of moving this rebuilding project forward hasn't been dampened, but rather only heightened in the coach's eyes.

MIAMI - They rose as one, 13 strong, and exhaled before walking into the visitors' locker room. As the final seconds ticked off on one of the worst seasons in franchise history, the 76ers went full circle with a 100-87 victory over the shorthanded Miami Heat at AmericanAirlines Arena on Wednesday. They opened the season on Oct. 30 with a thrilling upset of the Heat at Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (19-63) followed that up with victories over the Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls to start the season at 3-0. Six month later, they capped the season with consecutive wins, beating the Boston Celtics on Monday and dispatching the Heat (54-28)

Brett Brown has been saying that the 76ers would play with heart and energy. By doing so, the new coach believed his youthful team would steal a few wins. That's what happened Wednesday night in the team's season opener. The Sixers posted a 114-110 victory over the two-time defending NBA champion Miami Heat in front of 19,523 fans at the Wells Fargo Center. "The guys have bought in," Brown said.

ONE OF THE most entertaining NBA Finals series will come to a close tonight as the host Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs conclude their exhaustive battle for the title. Tuesday's Game 6 became an instant classic, with a myriad of big plays, faulty ones, and an overtime decision that tilted toward the Heat. So now comes the deciding Game 7, and here's a look at five keys to the game. 1. Miami's defense against San Antonio's outside shooting. Tim Duncan made 11 of 13 from the floor in the first half of Game 6 as the Heat focused on shutting down Danny Green and his red-hot shooting from beyond the arc. In the second half, Miami was able to shut down both, as Green finished the game 1-for-7 from the floor and Duncan made only two of his last eight shots.

MIAMI - Back with a blowout, and, no, the Miami Heat didn't need to lean on LeBron to get it. Not when Mario Chalmers and everyone else came through. Chalmers led the charge, James broke out to finish it with a flurry and the Heat used a 33-5 run to blow away the San Antonio Spurs, 103-84, last night to even the NBA Finals at one game apiece. James missed 10 of his first 13 shots and the Heat trailed by a point late in the third quarter before unleashing the lethal brand of basketball that led it to a franchise-record 66 wins this season.

MIAMI - If LeBron James played for the San Antonio Spurs, Gregg Popovich might have a message for him. It's the same one he's occasionally delivered to Tim Duncan. Selfless play is great. Moving the ball to open teammates is usually the right idea. That belief has carried the Spurs to four NBA titles. Sometimes, though, it's best if the superstar takes on more himself. "I've talked to players before about being more aggressive," Popovich said Friday, after the Spurs practiced following their 92-88 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 1. "Opportunities might be there that they didn't take advantage of. That happens with Timmy now and then.
