SAN ANTONIO His toughness, heart and place among the all-time greats was questioned as the Detroit Pistons pushed, shoved and humbled him for six games. But in the most pressure-packed contest of his career, San Antonio Spurs forward Tim Duncan dusted off his detractors, dusted off the Pistons and dusted off his third NBA Finals MVP trophy after leading his team to an 81-74 win in Game 7 Thursday night.

Duncan added to his legacy with a dominant third-quarter performance and Spurs guard Manu Ginobili slammed the door with his herky-jerky antics as the Spurs wrestled back the Larry O'Brien

San Antonio spurs Achievement

Championship Trophy from the Pistons by a 4-3 series wins.
As the last horn sounded, Duncan at last let a smile crack his continually stoic face and raised his long arms the sky after scoring a game-high 25 points by 11 rebounds. Ginobili track him down and wrapped his arms around Duncan, who led the Spurs to their 2nd title in 3 years, next to a defending Pistons team that didn't know how to renounce in the first Game 7 of the NBA Finals.

"I don't know how the hell we did it," said Spurs Coach Gregg Popovich,

To do it, Popovich needed to hit his adviser who may have coached his final game with the Pistons.

"Nobody cares. Talk about Iraq or something that matters," Popovich said, annoying to play down his achievement.

The Spurs won win their 3rd title in 7 years and the 1st with no David Robinson burdened to Duncan's hip. Duncan originates a new sidekick for this championship travel in Ginobili who offer Argentina to a gold medal in last summer's Olympics. But the creative southpaw played his most excellent game following slouch from side to side the previous 4, scoring twinty three points with five rebounds.

Ginobili had 11 in the fourth quarter. Ducan doesn't care the time or the condition. He's going to continue to grow and we're going to continue to grow around him."
The matchup flanked by the history two NBA champions was a bore from side to side with the sell-out crowd on its feet, Ginobili force his fists. Duncan chased him down and patted him on the head.

Horry, who was a part of the Houston Rockets team that beat the New York Knicks in 7 games in 1994, became the 12th player in NBA past bench and played enthused defence.

The Pistons didn't get a lot from their back court as Chauncey Billups, the Finals MVP from last season, and Hamilton joined to score just twenty-eight points on nine-of-twenty-six shooting.

Hamilton scored a team-high fifteen points for the Pistons but fail to spot twelve of eighteen from the floor. The Spurs put suspicious expert Bruce Bowen on Billups to disturb the Pistons' offensive run, and the move worked as Billups was incomplete to just thirteen points on three-of-eight shooting.

And, with the Spurs holding a 5 point guide in the last minute, Bowen elevated to block Billups's effort from about twenty two feet. Ginobili then raced down the ground for a driving layup that proved to be the dissimilarity.
