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,...

LeBron James passed on the podium and chose to address the media in front of his locker following the Miami Heat’s 113-77 blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday. If this drill sounds familiar, it’s because LeBron and Dwyane Wade did the same thing after the [...]
LeBron James is trying to make a statement ahead of Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Following a disappointing Game 3 performance in which James went 7-for-21 and did not attempt a free throw in a 113-77 blowout loss to the San Antonio Spurs, the Miami Heat star draped a red practice jersey around his [...]
Ask any comic book guy who would win in a battle between Batman and Superman.
The overwhelming majority would pick Batman, even though Superman is the alien with infinite power. Why do you think they would do that?
The reason is simple, brains can still beat brawn if the person with the brains is smart enough. Batman unlike almost every other superhero has no special powers. Even...
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.

“It’s been 2 years. At times I thought you were gone. Then I look up and there you were, King Houdini, leader of the Miami Heat, playing hot potato on the biggest stage.”
During game 3 of the NBA Finals, we were all witnesses again to LeBron’s disappearing act. While Heat fans are trying to figure out what happened. Every Cleveland sports fan is sitting back thinking to themselves...
It could be that talking to a digital avatar of yourself on the Internet is something the Millennial Generation intuitively understands. Certainly the concept of an avatar that isn't really you requires no leap of the imagination, but that doesn't make it any less awkward for anybody.
Take, for example, LeBron James -- King of the NBA and famous Millennial. In conjunction...
Following the San Antonio Spurs’ 113-77 victory over the Miami Heat in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, Spurs guard Danny Green said in his post-game presser that part of the reason Heat star LeBron James had a dismal performance Tuesday night is because the reigning MVP
Chael Sonnen is a bad man. He has gone toe to toe with some of the toughest men in the world; he hasn't always won, but he survived. In my book when you can do that you have to be pretty dang tough.
So when the man talks--I'm going to listen.
Recently when making an appearance on The Jim Rome Show he went off on a little tangent about LeBron James that while PG was...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) Even after winning 27 in a row during the regular season, the Miami Heat don't want to rely on a three-game winning streak now.
Not against a team as good as the San Antonio Spurs.
The Spurs can take a 3-1 lead in the NBA Finals on Thursday, which would move the Heat to the verge of something much bigger than just another finals failure.
Lose this series, and...
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- At their best in the NBA Finals, the Miami Heat have forced turnover after turnover, finding a gear the San Antonio Spurs just can't reach.
Play in Game 5 as they have during their two easy victories in the series, and LeBron James' defending champs will head home just one win away from another title.
But Miami's best hasn't been carrying over...
- 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...
Have you ever seen a game where the score didn’t fully reflect how the game went? Well, that was what happened last night. The crazy thing about that is the 36-point whooping (113-77) the Spurs laid on the Heat didn’t do the Spurs performance justice. The only reason the Spurs didn’t win by 50 was because of Mike Miller and his 5 3-pointers. Miller is now 8-8 in the last...
Perhaps symbolic, San Antonio ditched their gray alts that they had worn at home all post-season, for their traditional whites on Tuesday Night. That was preceded by handing out black t-shirts adorned with their familiar, albeit boring ‘U’ Spur logo to all fans in attendance.
The AT&T Center looked more like a sea of darkness than a celebration, almost mockingly...
