MIAMI -- The Heat forced Game 7 with a 103-100 overtime victory over the Spurs in Game 6 on Tuesday night.

LeBron James shook off a slow first half to score 16 fourth-quarter points, including a key three-pointer with 20 seconds remaining in regulation. He finished with his second triple-double of the 2013 Finals, tallying 32 points (on 11-for-26 shooting), 11 assists and 10 rebounds.

Miami overcame a vintage performance from Tim Duncan, who scored 30 points and grabbed 17 rebounds. Kawhi Leonard added 22 points and 11 rebounds for San Antonio.

The Heat forced overtime by closing the fourth quarter with a crazy flourish that culminated with a Ray Allen three-pointer from the corner with 5.2 seconds left. Mario Chalmers, who finished with 20 points, four rebounds and two assists, was big for Miami throughout.

Game 7 is set for Thursday night in Miami's American Airlines Arena.
