The 2014 NBA Finals was the championship series of the 2013–14 season of the National Basketball Association (NBA) and the conclusion of the season's playoffs. The Western Conference champion San Antonio Spurs defeated the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat in five games (4–1) for the Spurs' fifth NBA championship in the franchise's history. The Spurs outscored the Heat in the series by the largest average point differential (14.0) in Finals history. San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard was named the Finals Most Valuable Player (MVP), and became the third-youngest recipient of the award.
This was a rematch of the previous year's finals, which Miami won in seven games, handing the Spurs the franchise's first ever Finals defeat. This marked the 12th Finals rematch, but only the fifth since the ABA–NBA merger in 1976. It was the first Finals rematch since 1998, when the Chicago Bulls and Utah Jazz met in the Finals in consecutive seasons, with the Bulls winning the championship on both occasions.
The Spurs had home-court advantage since the team finished the regular season with a better record (62–20) than the Heat (54–28). For the first time since 1984, the Finals was played in a 2–2–1–1–1 format (Games 1 and 2 at home for the higher seeded team, Games 3 and 4 at home for the lower seeded team, Game 5 at the higher, Game 6 at the lower, and Game 7 at the higher). The series began on June 5, 2014, and ended on June 15, 2014.
