In a dramatic Game 5 of the NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs triumphed over the Miami Heat to win the NBA title Sunday night, closing out the series with a 104-87 victory.

After a dismal start, the Spurs rallied and turned things around, entering halftime with a 47-40 lead. When the game resumed, they never looked back and were up by more than 20 points multiple times in the second half.

The Spurs went into Sunday's game leading the series 3-1, a monster deficit for the Heat that no team has overcome in the NBA Finals. It was no different this time, and the Heat's two-year title reign came to an end.

This was the fifth NBA title in franchise history for the Spurs.
