Heat Big 3 step up in Finals Game 4Posted by Inside Hoops
With their backs against the wall and hopes of repeating as champions fading, the Miami Heat’s Big Three used a dominating performance to beat the San Antonio Spurs 109-93 on Thursday and even the NBA Finals at 2-2.
LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh had their best game of the NBA Finals, combining for 85 points as the Heat reclaimed home-court advantage in the best-of-seven series.
“I mean, it was on our shoulders, obviously,” James, who had a game-high 33 points, told reporters.
“When all three of us are clicking at the same time, we’re a very tough team to beat.”
Wade turned in his biggest offensive performance of the playoffs, scoring 32 points, while Bosh equaled his postseason high by chipping in with 20 points and 13 rebounds.
“All of them provided us great energy defensively. And that got us off to a decent start. And quite obviously they are big components to what we do offensively,” said Miami head coach Erik Spoelstra.
“We run almost every trigger through them. This happened to be a game where they were all able to be aggressive. The next game might present a different challenge. But we needed every bit of it tonight.”
