My pick all along has been Spurs in 7. Do I think they will lose by 7 points or more to the Heat tonight in Miami? Not so sure about that, but Vegas has set 7 as the line.
Danny Green has made 25 3-pointers in the NBA Finals, breaking Ray Allen’s record.
And he still has one or two more games to pad his record. That makes him the MVP, right? Well, the Spurs still have to win one more game, and nothing is over until it is over, as the saying goes.
More on the NBA Finals, the Celtics/Clippers coaching situation and other chatter from around the NBA in this podcast with Michael Grady and Joy Staysniak on ESPN 1070 The Fan in Indianapolis.
The Miami Heat have been a bounce back team for two straight postseasons.
SAN ANTONIO — Once again Wednesday, LeBron James heaping all the blame and the pressure on himself. His mood was better, his defiance was not manufactured, and he made a lot of good points while making a guarantee that he would play better.
Not that the Heat would win Game 4, but that he’d play better.
As guarantees go, it is certainly not the boldest one ever made.
The San Antonio Spurs are crowding the paint and daring LeBron James to take jumpers. So why doesn’t he?
Through the first three games of the NBA Finals, James has yet to score 20 points. It’s his longest such postseason streak since the 2011 Finals vs. Dallas, and we all know what happened there.
If James doesn’t want that to happen again, he has to stop worrying about efficiency and start worrying about the Miami Heat falling into a 3-1 hole. He has to stop wasting possessions trying to get his teammates involved and take over, the way the best player in the world should.
