The Miami Heat took advantage of a fully operational air conditioning system in San Antonio on Sunday to beat the Spurs on their home court and even up the 2014 NBA Finals at a game a piece. LeBron James, the blunt of many “cramps” jokes, proved his pundits wrong and scored at will in the Heat win.
Now the series shifts to Miami where the Spurs will have to end an impressive streak in order to avoid a 3-1 hole. One team will be halfway to the NBA title after we watch Heat vs Spurs Game 3 online free live streaming or over the air on ABC Sports tonight.
Miami has not lost a home playoff game in their last eleven, a streak that dates back to last year’s playoffs. They also haven’t lost two straight playoff games in their past 26 games. The Spurs just need to focus on taking out that first streak and if there’s any team that the Heat are afraid can do it, it’s them.
“You never put them away,” Dwayne Wade told reporters between games. “They don’t lose much and when they do, they come back and be [are] better the next game.”
Ironically the last team to hand the Heat a home playoff loss was the Spurs, and they did it last year in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. By losing at home Sunday, the Spurs now have to win at least one game in Miami or the best they can finish their season is as a runner-up.
After leaving Game 1 early due to cramps and having to listen to every critic on the planet call him soft, James responded big in Game 2 with 35 points and 10 rebounds. Mario Chalmers was the only Heat starter in Game 2 not to score in double digits.
