(CNN) — San Antonio defeated the Miami Heat 104 to 87 to claim the NBA championship Sunday night.

“This is a team, and that’s what makes this so, so great,” Spurs guard Manu Ginobili said.

The San Antonio dominated the series, winning four games to one. Each Spurs victory was by at least 15 points.

“Hard to believe, isn’t it? Ginobili said. “We played at a really high level.”

The victory snaps the Heat’s two-year championship run and hands San Antonio its fifth NBA title.

Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard was named the series MVP.
