Spurs’ Danny Green emerges as outside threat

MIAMI — If the Miami Heat are going to force a Game 7 of the NBA Finals, they have to make a defensive adjustment on Danny Green. A virtual unknown before the series, Green has emerged as a series MVP candidate by sinking 25 3-pointers, including six in the Spurs’ 114-104 Game 5 win at AT&T Center Sunday night.

Green’s rise has served as one of the most stunning developments of the series, which was supposed to pit the Miami Big Three of LeBron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade against San Antonio’s trio of Tony Parker, Tim Duncan, and Manu Ginobili. While they have enjoyed their moments, the three Spurs are each shooting below 50 percent.
