The 2014 World Cup wasn't the only international spectacle in sports on Sunday. The San Antonio Spurs, whose Game 5 roster included eight foreign-born players, got a true team effort to claim the franchise's fifth NBA title by beating the Miami Heat 104-87.
Though Lebron James came to play in the first quarter the Spurs would have an answer. NBA Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and Manu Ginobili — one of Argentina's most famous athletes not named Messi — carried the load in the first half, combining for 29 points. In the third quarter it was Patty Mills who caught fire. The reserve point guard, hailing from Australia, chipped in 14 points as the Spurs' rout began to take force.
While he struggled for the better part of three quarters, France's Tony Parker would come alive in the 4th. With the Heat showing signs of life with 9:57 remaining, Parker would erase that momentum with 14 key points down the stretch.
And of course, the win gave US Virgin Islands native Tim Duncan his fifth NBA title with the Spurs.
