NOTES: With his 14th minute Thursday, Spurs PF Tim Duncan passed Kareem Abdul-Jabbar for the most postseason playing time in NBA history. ... Entering Thursday, Spurs F Boris Diaw had the best plus-minus of any player in the Finals at plus-45. He was plus-15 in Game 4, just the fifth-best figure on the team. G Manu Ginobili, who scored seven points, was plus-27. ... Spurs F Kawhi Leonard scored 29 points Tuesday, his highest total since high school. ... Instead of practicing Wednesday, the Heat watched video of Tuesday's blowout loss to the Spurs. Heat G Dwyane Wade said the focus was how to stop Leonard, and part of the plan was to force him right. Leonard still hit seven of 12 shots Thursday. ... Since the shot clock was instituted in 1954, San Antonio owns the two greatest-shooting quarters in NBA Finals history: the fourth quarter of Game 1 (87.5 percent) and the first quarter of Game 3 (86.7 percent).
