Down 3-1, Miami now faces the daunting task of accomplishing what no team has ever done in NBA Finals history, come back and win 3 straight games to win an NBA championship. If Games 3 and 4 were any indication of where this series is right now, the best bet is that Miami's chances of an historic three-peat may come to a abrupt end on Sunday night in a series which has dramatically tilted the Spurs way after taking both games at AmericanAirlines Arena in bulldozing fashion.
For LeBron James, while the task ahead may be tough to accomplish, he has another perspective of looking at the rest of this series in terms of where the Heat currently stands and whether they can make history.
So history is made to be broken, and why not me be a part of it? That would be great. That would be a great story line, right?"
It would be great. But it won't be easy that's for certain. If Miami is to even be competitive starting from Game 5, finding way to slow down the machine that is the San Antonio Spurs offense will be a great place to start.
Coach Gregg Popovich and the Spurs have had the Miami Heat defense, especially during Games 3 and 4, looking everything from confused to discombobulated in their rotations to the point of mental fatigue. It also would help that rather than Miami relying solely on their 4-time MVP, that the still very capable supporting cast steps their game up in this time of crisis.
