    On Sunday night, the San Antonio Spurs proved revenge is a dish best served cold. They dominated the NBA Finals to freeze back-to-back defending champions the Miami Heat in their tracks. In the fifth game of the series, the Spurs cruised to a 104-87 victory over LeBron James and the Heat. Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard earned the Most Valuable Player award, nabbing 29 points for his team in the third game against the Heat. It was redemption for the Spurs, who lost to the Heat in the finals last year. The team had a 14-point average margin of victory for each game of the NBA Finals (even with a loss), which was a championship series record. “It just makes the journey even more worth it. It was worth all the pain,” said the Spurs’ Tony Parker. “It’s so sweet to win a championship the way we did.”
