The San Antonio Spurs (13-3) will look to bounce back from a crushing 103-84 loss to the Miami Heat (13-5) in Miami in the 2013 NBA Finals in Game 3 tonight as the scene now shifts to San Antonio. Though the Spurs did split the first two games in Miami winning Game 1, Game 2 was simply a debacle in the second half. Danny Green finished with 17 points and shot a perfect 6-6 from the floor and 5-5 from three-point distance to lead San Antonio in the defeat. Kawhi Leonard pulled down a game-high 14 rebounds while LeBron James led the Heat with 17 points, 8 rebounds, 7 assists, 3 steals and 3 blocks. Miami got hot in the second quarter, shooting 54.5 percent from the field as they took a five-point, 50-45, lead into the break. The game was tied at 58 apiece with 5:17 left in the third, but the Heat went on a 17-7 run to end the quarter and gave the Heat a 10-point, 75-65, lead heading into the final frame. Miami opened the fourth quarter with a 19-2 run to push their lead to 27, 94-67, and got the easy win. And as San Antonio looks to take a 2-1 lead in the Finals tonight at the AT&T Center, here are five things to watch for during tonight's contest: • The Spurs own a 9-2 (.818) overall home record in the NBA Finals. • The Spurs are 5-0 in the postseason when leading after the first quarter at home. • Miami's Udonis Haslem is shooting 61 percent from the field this postseason. • Miami is 5-2 on the road in the postseason. • Miami has held opponents to under 100 points in 17 of their 18 games this postseason.
