At one point during the second half of Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Sunday night, Dwyane Wade got caught in a switch and ended up covering Kevin Durant.

James, Wade voice support for Spoelstra

Where there once was doubt with Erik Spoelstra regarding whether the Heat coach would be back next season, there now seemingly is certainty.

"I think Spo has...

Assorted Observations: NBA Finals, Game Three

***For the first time since the second round the Heat have won a game in which LeBron did not drop 30.  However, his 29 did account for nearly a third of Miami’s 91 points, so that’s a little misleading.  Although he had a sub-par night from the floor (11-23), LeBron set a certain tone early with his assertiveness in the paint.  He was a man possessed on the offensive boards...
