Miami Heat 1-2 San Antonio Spurs
Time: Thursday, June 13 at 9 P.M. ET
TV Network: ABC
At: AT&T Center, San Antonio
The Heat will be coming off an extremely embarrassing game 3 loss. After an abysmal second half, the reigning NBA champions suffered a 36-point defeat and are essentially in a must-win situation.
Players to watch
Miami Heat – LeBron James has not found his offense in this series, which the Spurs have a lot to do with. He is the best player in the world and if he cannot figure it out and come up with a huge game, it is highly unlikely anyone else will.
San Antonio Spurs – Tony Parker has a strained hamstring and it will be interesting to see how mobile he is if he does play (which I would assume he will — it is the NBA Finals after all). He has had a couple of poor performances but San Antonio has gotten away with it thanks to great contributions by role players. A strained hamstring, while not particularly serious, does limit your explosiveness, so Parker could very well be hobbled.
Prediction: This is it for Miami. If they lose game 4, there is no way they would win three straight games against these Spurs. The Heat have to win and they will.
