The Miami heat pushed "The Button" on Thursday in San Antonio, a button they seem to use only when they really need it, like Popeye's spinach.
LeBron James showed up in camouflage, which may or may not have been a coincidence, and the Heat got big games from their Big Three, using a fourth-quarter surge to put away the Spurs, 109-93 .
So the narrative of the series changes again, and you may find it helpful to know what you can and can't say about it after Game 4.
Some stuff you can't say after Game 4
"Chris Bosh is a ninny"
Bosh was responsible for one of the great facepalm moments of the NBA playoffs, when he cocked back and slammed home a thunderous dunk -- but right after time expired in the first half.
But he has to be forgiven because he played his best game of the series, going for 20 points and 13 rebounds .
Bosh rightfully takes a lot of heat for his tendency to float around on the perimeter and not get rebounds, but this just isn...
BEST OF MAXIM
For those of you wondering what Miami Heat star LeBron James decided to wear to the AT&T Center for game four of the 2013 NBA Finals, wonder no more!
Thanks to the fine folks over at SB Nation, they caught this screen cab of LeBron entering the Miami dressing room dressed in a camouflage vest and black t-shirt/pants:
LeBron James scored 15 points playing with the aggression and ferocity that everyone expects of the four-time MVP, and the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs went into halftime tied 49-49 in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
James scored 11 points in the first quarter and also had four rebounds to rally the Heat back from a 10-point first quarter deficit. Dwyane Wade added...
After Miami Heat star LeBron James scored a dysmal four points in the first half of game three of the 2013 NBA Finals, Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry decided to go in on him.
Curry was in control of the ESPN Sportscenter Twitter account and posted the below Vine video of his daughter scoring a basket on a Fisher Price hoop:

Game 4: Miami Heat vs. San Antonio Spurs
9 p.m./ABC -- Spurs lead 2-1
15 points. 7-for-21 shooting. 1-for-5 shooting from beyond the arc. And, most importantly, Spurs 113, Heat 77.
These are the numbers undoubtedly rattling around in LeBron James' head after his Game Three disaster of a performance that now has Miami almost with its backs to the wall facing two more...
Win or Lose it's all about LeBron James. We tend to forget there are 9 other people on the court. He's a force of nature, but LeBron isn't the only reason for Miami's uneven play.
I joined Justin Hull on The Home Stretch to talk about the haters ripping on LeBron James, why San Antonio's role players needed to step up in Game 3 and the NBA Draft.
Was anyone else wondering what happened to the fashion once the NBA Finals started? For some odd reason there just hasn't been anything worth talking about since the series began. If anyone was going to sport something strange it would be the Heat
That is, until now.
Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh, and LeBron James may have discovered the secret to their success; dress like weirdos...
- Since the 2-3-2 in the NBA Finals, the winner of Game 3 has won the series 92 % of the time (12-1). The Heat beat the Mavericks in 2011 but lost the series.
- The Spurs made 16 three pointers in Game 3 a NBA Finals record
- Danny Green 16 made three pointers are most of any Spurs player in the NBA Finals
- The 36 point loss by the Heat in Game 3 is the worst in Heat postseason...
Game Two was the kind of game good teams have nightmares about. The defense and principals of a team break down and it leads to an onslaught of highlights and talk that makes a player and a team doubt itself. Especially when the stakes are so high. The only thing a team can do to fight all this off is to respond the next time out.
San Antonio HAD to respond the next time out and...
It started off as we thought it might. Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are key in a San Antonio Spurs win while LeBron James had a triple double in a Game 1 that could've gone either way. Then things got weird.
First the Spurs got crushed by the Miami Heat, which isn't too weird, but what was weird is that the blowout wasn't a part of a "LeBron game" or...
