LeBron James blocks Tim Duncan at the rim during Heat-Spurs Game 6 (Video)

Most of Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals has belonged to San Antonio Spurs big man Tim Duncan, who dominated the first half en route to 25 points on 11 for 13 shooting and eight rebounds, and has been the primary low-post and paint force on Tuesday night. On the other hand, LeBron James entered the third quarter on a subpar streak, missing nine of his 12 shots and looking for all the world like he was ready to don the goat horns if his Miami Heat lost and watched the Spurs celebrate their fifth title of the Duncan-Gregg Popovich era.

But starting in the waning seconds of the third quarter, the Heat started to get themselves going and embarked on a big fourth-quarter push, which reached its apex when the two all-time greats met at the rim in the San Antonio offensive end ... and, like he did earlier in Game 2, James got the better of the exchange:

James came back on the other end to make a driving layup that tied the game at 82, and after all that, we were level. This game, man. This series, man.
