MIAMI - A day later, everybody was still marveling about “The Shot.”

Tony Parker’s brilliant, game-sealing, double-clutch effort over LeBron James in Game 1 of the NBA Finals will go down in league lore, should the Spurs manage to eventually beat the Heat.

San Antonio took the opener 92-88, mainly because Parker was silly good, in a 21-point, six-assist effort with nary a turnover.

“They played it over and over on every channel last night. It was hard not to see it,” said Spurs starter Danny Green of Parker’s heroics.

“It was an incredible shot. It’s not easy to do, but he did it and that’s why he’s Tony.”

Parker described the scene as “chaos.”

“It was a crazy play … When I was on the ground, I had time to look at the clock, and I knew it was 1.7. So I had time to pump fake and get a shot up. It was definitely a little bit of luck and me not panicking.”
