The Spurs 2014 NBA championship was one for the ages as they toppled the two-time defending champion Miami Heat.
Here are a few numbers after the Spurs’ 104-87 victory to close out the series in five games.
The Spurs’ average margin of victory in the series was 14 points per game. It was the largest point differential in NBA Finals history. The previous record was 12.6 points per game by the 1965 Boston Celtics over the Lakers.
Kawhi Leonard scored 22 points and recorded 10 rebounds as he claimed the NBA Finals MVP. At 22 years and 351 days old, Leonard is the third-youngest recipient of that award since the NBA began awarding them in 1969.
Leonard also became the fifth-youngest player to notch at least 20 points and 10 rebounds in a series-clinching Finals game and the youngest to do that since Kobe Bryant in 2001, according to ESPN Stats and Information
The Spurs finished the series shooting .5276 percent from the field in the Finals. It was the highest shooting percentage for a Finals of any length. The Bulls shot .5272 in five games against the Lakers in 1991 and Detroit shot .5268 against the Lakers in 1989.
The Game 5 victory was the 12th time the Spurs have won by 15 or more points in the 2014 playoffs. The Lakers won 10 games by 15 or more points during the 1985 playoffs, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.
