LeBron and the Heat better bring it in Game 4, ’cause the Spurs
owned Game 3 — or Game 3-pointer, really.
The Spurs had all the momentum since halftime and blew it open
with a record night from beyond the arc, while LeBron struggled to
15 points on 7-for-21 shooting as the Spurs buried the Heat, 113-77 on Tuesday.
”Honestly, I just have to play better,” James said. ”I can’t
have a performance like tonight and expect to win.”
The Spurs turned it into a shooting contest between Danny Green and Gary Neal
— yeah, that’s right — as Green scored 27 and Neal had
24. Green has hit 12 straight 3’s dating to Game 2 while Neal had
six treys, giving San Antonio a Finals-record 16 makes from beyond
the arc in Game 3.
Wade still is struggling, finishing with just 16 points after
getting eight first-quarter points. The Heat’s Big 3 had just 43
points, while Mike Miller kept them in it for a while, going 5 for
5 on 3’s to give him eight straight makes from beyond the arc.
But the way the rest of the Heat played, even these ladies could
beat ’em. Watch out for Doris; she’s got a mean handle.
The only thing worse than the Heat’s 40 percent shooting was
looking at Ray Allen’s shoes.
How bad was it? There was even a Tracy McGrady sighting.
Game 4 is Thursday in San Antonio, where the Heat are 3-22 in
the regular season and so far zero wins and one really bad beating
in the postseason. LeBron better turn up the Imagine Dragons on his
