SAN ANTONIO -- Spurs fans had plenty to celebrate after a 113-77 evisceration of the Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night. And celebrate they did.

In the hours after San Antonio dealt Miami its worst playoff loss in franchise history, Spurs fans congregated in the streets of downtown San Antonio, honking their horns, shouting and generally making merry. One group, pictured above, appeared to be having the most fun of all: Two children clad (collectively) in diapers, cowboy hats and cowboy boots and sporting drawn-on mustaches danced on top of a truck as it waited in bumper-to-bumper traffic on Losoya Street, just blocks from The Alamo.

The white truck was decorated in black lettering with multiple messages in Spanish and English, including "Puro Pinche Spurs" and "Spurs Nation," plus the names and jersey numbers of multiple Spurs players, including Tony Parker, Tim Duncan and Danny Green.

Another picture and video of the celebratory scene are below.

The Spurs are now within two games of winning the fifth title of Duncan's career and the franchise's first title since 2007. Game 4 is Thursday at the AT&T Center. Game 5 will be played on Sunday, also in San Antonio.

Green scored a game-high 27 points, including seven three-pointers. Gary Neal added 24 points and had six three-pointers off of coach Gregg Popovich's bench. Duncan added 12 points and 14 rebounds. San Antonio held LeBron James to 15 points on 7-of-21 shooting; the 2013 MVP did not attempt a free throw in a playoff game for just the second time in his career.
