The Mayo Clinic describes heat cramps as "painful, involuntary muscle spasms that usually occur during heavy exercise in hot environments." Dehydration contributes to the symptoms. Too much sweating can deplete the body of necessary salt and moisture.
ESPN reported that temperatures topped 90 degrees Fahrenheit inside the arena.
Players from both teams admitted that the steamy conditions had an impact on the game.
Gregg Popovich, head coach for the Spurs, said that the temperatures threw off normal game operations.
"Players were pretty dead. So we tried to get guys in and out a little bit more than we usually do. Kind of screws up the rhythm a little, bit but it was mighty hot out there," he said.
Outside the arena, social media erupted with reactions to the crazy conditions.
