The Miami Heat entered game four with a lot of criticism following a game three 113-77 road defeat to the San Antonio Spurs. LeBron James lacked aggressiveness and took the blunt of the blame for the lopsided defeat in game three. The Heat’s big three brought their “A” game and led the team to a 109-93 road win against the Spurs as a -1 point betting favorite. LeBron James responded with his best game of the Finals in game four with 33 points and 11 rebounds in the victory. Dwyane Wade scored 32 points and made 14 of 25 shots. The Big three scored 85 of the Heat’s 109 points in game four. Tony Parker played 31 minutes and scored 15 points on 7 of 16 shooting with a hamstring strain. We have seen players who play with injuries struggle in second halves of games and Tony Parker did not have a good second half in game four. Parker is no longer listed on the injury report but hamstring problems don’t heal quickly so that will be of concern for the Spurs moving forward in this series.
