Despite the closeness of the series, Game 6, like the five before it, was won with a big third quarter and by double digits.
The Spurs went ahead for good with 4:27 left in the first quarter and led by as many as 24 points in the second half.
"Thank God we get to go back to New Orleans for Game 7," Paul said.
