The Spurs secured an important victory last night over the Heat in Game 5 of the NBA Finals--although they still have to go back to Miami on Tuesday, they go into Game 6 with the Heat down 3-2. Considering that the Heat will be back on home court, and that they always seem to bounce back from losses with unmatchable intensity, chance are they will win and push the Finals into Game 7.
Now that the Finals are really starting to heat up, ticket prices have also seen astronomical rises. Before Game 1, tickets sold for an average price of $491.64 but after Game 3, they shot up to $899.19, a difference of $407.15. Check out these awesome other data and figures.

Game Stats and Highlights
While James and Wade both put up solid figures (25 points and 6 rebounds for James, 25 points and 10 rebounds for Wade), Spurs fan-favorite Manu Ginobili and rising star Danny Green definitely stole the show. In his first start of the entire season, Ginobili rose to the occasion and put away 24 points and 10 assists. Similarly, Green, in his first career Finals, has been shooting 65.8% from beyond the arc, and broke Ray Allen's record for most 3-pointers in a Playoff series, sinking 6 of 10 last night. Parker led the Spurs in scoring with 26 points while Duncan grabbed 12 rebounds and put away 17 points.
