Patty Mills has become the first Indigenous Australian to win an NBA Championship, fellow Aussie Aron Baynes helped Mills lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 104-87 victory against Miami’s Heats, winning the first championship for the team since 1999. After a nail biting first quarter, things weren’t looking to good for the Spurs as the Heat led 29-22. The tables turned in the following quarters, with Patty Mills scoring four three-pointers in a five minute span.
Patty Mills & Aron Baynes are the third and fourth Australians to win an NBA Championship, joining Aussie Basketball greats Luc Longley and Andrew Gaze.
