The 2014 NBA Finals are being billed as a battle of the “Big Three” of the Heat and Spurs. And while you need a superstar(s) to win a title, you also need a strong supporting cast. So The Hoops Manifesto will look to shine some light on these less heralded players with our “The Non-Big Three Star of the Game” award given out after every game of the Finals.
The Non-Big Three Star of Game 1:
Danny Green – San Antonio
28 minutes, 13 points (3-7 3Pts), 3 boards, 1 assist, 2 steals, 1 block
At the same time that LeBron James wilted in the heat, Danny Green stepped up, catching fire in the fourth quarter and propelling the Spurs on to victory.
