The AT&T Center in San Antonio, TX took a big image hit during Game 1 of the NBA Finals Thursday night. Things heated up quickly between the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat.
The power line that feeds the air conditioning unit broke, sending the arena temperature to a sweltering 90 degrees. As the play-by-play announcers whined about sweating, there was also talk of how the players were holding up, both physically and mentally.
The Spurs rallied in the last few minutes to win the game.
But it was Miami’s LeBron James who stole their thunder.
When James awkwardly limped to the bench and was helped into the locker room suffering from ‘leg cramps’, people were all over Twitter and social media to share some chuckles. Take a peek at #NBAFinals2014 and #GoSpursGo.

I can’t wait for Game 2!
