  1. Heat vs. Spurs NBA Finals Game 3 preview: Was Heat’s run an aberration?

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game Two

    The Miami Heat just have another gear that no NBA team can match. The kind of gear that puts on a 33-5 run against a very good Spurs team in the NBA Finals. But they have played these playoffs more like a Top Fuel dragster — they can’t sustain that level of play for an…

  2. Spurs don’t need to adjust as much as you think for Game 3

    Spurs' Parker, Duncan, and Ginobili sit on the bench during their loss to the Heat in Game 2 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    It wasn’t so much the plan as the execution of it. Despite what the final score suggests, San Antonio did a number of things right in Game 2. They once again made things difficult for LeBron James — through two games he is averaging 17.5 points on 42.4 percent shooting. He started Sunday night 2-of-12…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game Two

    MIAMI — The score was 62-61 Spurs with 3:11 left in the third quarter, when Mario Chalmers drove right off a LeBron James pick, got in close and drew the And-1 foul call. That started a 33-5 run that turned the game into a blowout win for the Heat to even the series. The video…

    MIAMI — Of course it was Mario Chalmers. He did this at Kansas, when he sent the 2008 NCAA Finals to overtime with a three pointer over Derrick Rose. Chalmers’ Jayhawks went on to win that game. Last year he dropped 25 points on 14 shots on Oklahoma City in Game 4 of the NBA…

    Heat's James dunks on Spurs' Green during Game 2 of the NBA Finals in Miami

    MIAMI — For nearly three quarters the San Antonio Spurs seemed to be doing it again — they held LeBron James to 2-of-12 shooting, they were getting back in transition and taking away the easy baskets the Heat thrive on, plus Danny Green was nailing threes like they were lay-ups. It was a close game…

    Spurs'  Duncan and Heat's Battier battle for the ball during Game 1 of their NBA Finals basketball playoff in Miami

    This was a close game for most of three quarters — then the Heat went on one of their runs. It was 62-61 Spurs with 3:50 left in the third quarter and the Heat went on a 34-5 run that just blew the game wide open. The final score was 103-84 and the final five…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game Two

    MIAMI — This continues to be a very entertaining NBA Finals to watch — but it’s not because of the Heat are getting to make spectacular dunks on the fast break like they want. San Antonio has done a fantastic job all series of getting back on defense and taking away the easy transition buckets…

    San Antonio Spurs v Miami Heat - Game One

    MIAMI — The Spurs know what’s coming. Talking to them Saturday after practice they fully expect the Heat to come out much more aggressive, particularly on defense — Miami will trap, jump passing lanes and try to turn the Spurs over. In Game 1 the Heat respected Tony Parker and didn’t try to trap him…

  9. LeBron to those saying he needs to do more: “I’ve done more and lost”

    MIAMI — LeBron James learned his lesson in Cleveland — he could not win on his own. Nobody can. You need teammates worth trusting and to give them the rock. Now just because the Heat are down 0-1 to the Spurs and he went scoreless for a six-minute stretch in the fourth quarter, he’s not…

    MIAMI — Everyone else danced around the question. Game 2 is important because all NBA Finals games are important, most Heat players said. Which is true. But some games are more important than others. Just think if if Miami drops its first two games at home… “We’re not a team that really says too much,…

  11. Television ratings dip from last season for Game 1 of NBA Finals

    Game 1 of the NBA Finals between the Spurs and Heat drew 14.2 million viewers, easily winning the television ratings for the night for ABC. But that number is off 12 percent from last season when the Heat were playing the Oklahoma City Thunder (that drew 16.2 million), and it is down slightly from the…

    When the NBA Finals tip off Thursday night legacies will be on the line. The Miami Heat have made no bones about it since the day LeBron James and Chris Bosh said they were joining Dwyane Wade in South Beach — they want to be one of the best teams ever. But they need to…

    And then there were two… Kay Adams and I talk NBA Finals: Can the Spurs big men cause the same problems to the Heat the Pacers’ bigs did? Are the Spurs rested or Rusty? And can Kawhi Leonard have any real success guarding LeBron James? To me, the real key to this series is how Tony…

    Gregg Popovich

    I pity the sideline reporter who gets to talk to Gregg Popovich in game Thursday night, they will be lucky to get a sentence out of the guy. However, when Popovich is in the mood to talk, he is both funny and insightful. It’s the side we always hear about — Popovich is a guy…

    San Antonio Spurs v Memphis Grizzlies - Game Four

    Back in 2001, the Lakers finished off a sweep of the Spurs 111-82 on May 27. Then they had to sit around with nine days off until Game 1 of the Finals against the Philadelphia 76ers. Those Lakers lost just one playoff game that season (15-1) — that first game after the long layoff. It…

    Tim Duncan LeBron James

    This isn’t the first time Tim Duncan and the Spurs stood in the way of LeBron James and what he sees as his destiny to be one of the game’s all time greats. Back in 2007 LeBron dragged his Cavaliers squad to the Finals, only to be just carved up by the Spurs winning their…
