For the second season in a row, LeBron James and Heat are NBA champions. James poured in 37 points in the winner-take all 2013 NBA Finals finale as the Heat outlasted the San Antonio Spurs, 95-88.

“It took everything we had as a team, credit to the San Antonio Spurs,” Dwyane Wade told Doris Burke of ESPN on the floor after the final buzzer had sounded on a thrilling Game 7. “They are an unbelievable team, unbelievable franchise. This was the hardest series we ever had to play but we’re a resilient team and we did whatever it took.”

What it took, was a classic performance from James, 23 points and 10 rebounds from Wade and an incredible effort from Shane Battier, who scored 18 points and shot 6-of-8 from beyond the arc in Game 7. Although Chris Bosh was held scoreless by the Spurs in Game 7, Battier and Mario Chalmers combined for 32 points.

“It’s better to be timely than good,” Battier quipped to Burke as confetti fell following the presentation of the Larry O’Brien Trophy. Prior to his stunning Game 7 performance, Battier had managed just 21 total points in the previous six games.

Despite the presence of a “Big Three” in each lineup, it was Chalmers who delivered one of the most devastating blows in the seventh round of the classic Finals bout. With time winding down in the third quarter and the Spurs holding a narrow 71-69 advantage, Chalmers gave the Heat the lead for good with a deep, three-point shot that just beat the buzzer.
