Hard to figure out too much from one game. The Spurs are going to shoot much better in this series, but they will prolly not take care of the ball as well as they did. Miami will have better 4th quarters, but I don't think they can rely on the role player contributions that they got in game 1.
Overall I think SA is the better team here, they feel like the better team. Almost like they've got it set in their minds to win another one for Duncan. When you have Lebron he can make up for just about anything tho.
I'll stick with Spurs in 6. They won't get rattled if they get blown out one game, they know how to handle close game pressure, and they have Pop on the sideline to handle all adjustments.
If Miami plays up to their abilities, they will win. If not, the Spurs can win.
