The league MVP and his Miami Heat find themselves down two-games-to-one to San Antonio heading into tonight’s Game 4 of the NBA Finals. And the Heat need a much better performance than their 36-point loss in Game 3 if they hope to keep from being pushed to the brink of elimination.
James himself is going to have to up his game after missing his first 10 shots from outside the paint and winding up 7-for-21 in Game 3.
One promising trend that the Heat can take comfort in is that they haven’t lost consecutive games in five months.
Also playing in the Heat’s favor: It’s unlikely that the Spurs can match their record 16 3-point baskets from Game 3.
