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 prove the Heat were not this juggernaut the media sometimes make them out to be and would get the simple waltz to a second straight title. This was still their series and they still had home-court advantage.
Now it is Miami's turn to have nightmares and scratch their heads a bit more. What San Antonio did to Miami in Game Three was much more clinical and much more devastating it seemed than Game Two. Questions abound now heading into Game Four.
The Spurs made an NBA Finals record 16 3-pointers (on 32 attempts!) and gave no mercy or end to the shooting onslaught as the Heat struggled even to get int...

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...
Now the only question will it be as back to back champion or 1-3 in NBA Finals. Actually two questions, when will his romaine kick in. Ok I’m done.
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.
The Miami Heat are set to take on the San Antonio Spurs in a critical Game 3 matchup of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, but Marshall Henderson has more important priorities to worry about. Henderson is a huge LeBron James fan, but he is too pumped for the Season 4 premiere of ABC Family’s [...]
LeBron James isn’t running from his NBA destiny.
I met LeBron James once.
We were both 17 and in Las Vegas for an AAU tournament. He was just at the beginning of what would be an incredible and scandal-filled senior year. He wasn’t known nationally yet and unless you read SLAM Magazine religiously, you probably didn’t know who he was then either.
James didn’t play in that...
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.
Scott started off the day making fun of my Keurig machine. After that we talked a lot about sports and a bit about neckties and contrived fashion.
Keurig machines and how communist they are
Neckties and bow ties
The idea that the necktie is a marker at all is strange
The band concert uniform

- 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...
The Miami Heat have been the favorites to win the 2013 NBA championship since they wrapped up their celebration parade at the end of last season, but that’s not to say that the NBA odds for this year can’t still change. After splitting Games 1 and 2 in South Beach, the San Antonio Spurs have effectively rewritten the best-of-seven series heading into Game 3.
The Spurs are negative...
