San Antonio Spurs Ready for Game 4 Battle After Blowout Win Over Miami Heat
The 2013 NBA Finals may show a 2-1 lead, but the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat are now even. After the Heat topped the Spurs by 19 points in Game 2, San Antonio returned the favor in Game 3 by nearly doubling that point differential with a 113-77 blowout victory.
Pretty much everything went right for the Spurs, who hit a Finals record 16 three-pointers, including six from Gary Neal and seven from Danny Green. That’s right, the Spurs beat the Heat without monster games from any members of the Big Three. In fact, Tony Parker, Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan didn’t play much at all in the fourth quarter because the game was already decided, although Parker’s hamstring injury was part of the reason he missed a lot of the second half.
Now with the series lead again, the Spurs will prepare for a strong bounce-back effort from the Heat in Game 4 in the second of three straight contests in San Antonio. Giving Miami its first consecutive loss in six months won’t be easy — especially if Parker isn’t healthy — but with LeBron James clearly uncomfortable and none of his teammates willing to step up in his “absence,” the Spurs could really turn the tide in their favor even more by taking a 3-1 series lead. Of course, that’s much easier said than done because the Spurs won’t have another record-breaking shooting game, so it will have to be done the old-fashioned way. We’ll go out on a limb and say they don’t mind.
