Manu Ginobili and Tony Parker have played without air conditioning for years in Europe, so Game 1 wasn't a problem for them after the air conditioning went out.
LeBron James had to be helped off the court in the fourth quarter with cramps as the temperature at the AT&T Center rose to sauna-like levels. The Spurs' group of internationals, however, stayed cool.
They've played in similar conditions, wrote Matt Miller of CBSSports.com.
"Me personally, it didn't bother me," Tony Parker said. "Felt like Europe. We never have AC in Europe, so it didn't bother me at all."
