San Antonio Spurs tie NBA Finals turnover record

According to advanced statistics writer John Schuhmann, in 290 regular season and Playoff games since LeBron James joined the Miami Heat, the Heat’s opponents had never turned over the ball fewer than six times. That is, until last night.

In Game 1 of the 2013 NBA Finals the San Antonio Spurs turned over the ball only four times against the Heat. The Spurs’ four turnovers ties an NBA Finals record for fewest turnovers in a game.

The Detroit Pistons, in Game 4 of the 2005 Finals, also had only four turnovers. The Pistons’ opponent in that game? The San Antonio Spurs. The Pistons won that game 102-71 but lost the series in seven games.

Spurs point guard Tony Parker was responsible for none of those four turnovers, while Tim Duncan had two and Tiago Splitter and Manu Ginóbili each had one.

The Heat, for their part, only turned the ball over eight times. With a combined 12 turnovers, the Spurs and Heat broke the NBA record for fewest total turnovers in a game, a record set by the Los Angeles Lakers and Indiana Pacers (five and nine, respectively, for a total of 14) in Game 6 of the 2000 Finals.
