What To Watch For

Ball Movement
The Spurs traditionally hurt the Heat with their ball movement. Miami can play well for much of the game, but at any point a defensive breakdown or a string of them can lead to a run by the Spurs. The Heat must stay committed to their defensive approach and rotate for the entire possession.
