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 road games and the possibility of losing this championship series. James was cursing himself for his passive play and his inability to get going for his team. He either has not accepted or is coming around to accepting the fact he must carry this team across the finish line to win a championship.
Sure, everyone has their bad days. Magic Johnson had a horrible performance in several blowout losses to the Celtics. The great ones though find a way to bounce back and be even better, making up for a game of heartbreak with a game of brilliance and take control of the series.
Miami is changing things up, going all in with this small ball identity that helped it attain the best record in the league during the regular season. Erik Spoelstra may start Mike Miller and shift LeBron James to one of the post positions, hoping to jump start the offense some and give James maybe a more favorable offensive matchup against a slower post player.
There are changes that need to be made. The biggest one for Miami though remains LeBron James playing with more aggression and looking to attack more. If that happens, the Heat can get back into this series.
