Spurs Win Game 3, Get The Brooms Ready

CLEVELAND (AP) - It was ugly, but the San Antonio Spurs will take it.

The Spurs are a win away from their fourth NBA championship after taking Game Three of the Finals, 75-72 over the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

It tied the second fewest points in NBA Finals history, topped only by the 145 points Fort Wayne and Syracuse scored during a 1955 game.

The Spurs managed to win despite getting just 34 total points from Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. Parker paced San Antonio with 17 points and Duncan finished with 14 despite early foul trouble. Ginobili was held scoreless before hitting three crucial free throws in the final 10.4 seconds. He had 25 points in the Spurs' Game-Two victory. Bruce Bowen picked up the slack with 13 points after scoring just nine over the first two games of the series. Brent Barry hit three three-pointers.

LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 25 points, eight rebounds and seven assists but missed a three-point try in the closing seconds to seal the loss.

The Spurs can wrap up the title Thursday in Cleveland.
