The finals opened as such a juicy matchup of A-list stars. LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh for the Heat against Tim Duncan, Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili for the old guard Spurs. Big Three v Big Three. Winners take all.

Tim Duncan is doing his very best to get the San Antonio Spurs back to the NBA finals one more time.

The 37-year-old centre took control in overtime for a second straight game, this time scoring the first five points as the Spurs rallied from an 18-point deficit to beat the Memphis Grizzlies 104-93. That put them a win away from their first finals since 2007.
