WATCH: Tony Parker beats LeBron James to drain an incredible, game-clinching buzzer-beater

Still think the Spurs are boring?

A spinning, scrambling, stumbling Tony Parker hoisted the San Antonio Spurs to an NBA Finals Game 1 win over the Miami Heat Thursday night with an unbelievable desperation shot in the game's closing seconds.

With the shot clock winding down and the Spurs up two, Parker dribbled around three Heat defenders, almost lost the ball, half-fell to the ground, threw off LeBron James with a little shot fake, and ducked under his outstretched arm to hit a bank shot — with a little help from a favorable bounce off the front of the rim. That put the Spurs up by four with only five seconds remaining.

James posted another playoff triple-double — the tenth of his career, tied for third-most all-time — with 18 points, 18 rebounds, and 10 assists, but it wasn't enough.

Game 2 of this best-of-seven series will be played Sunday night in Miami.

Still think the Spurs are boring? Then you should probably read this.
