Game 5 of the NBA Finals 2014 [Live Stream Free & TV Schedule] will be heading back to the AT&T Center where there are currently four banners of San Antonio’s titles in 1999, 2003, 2005 and 2007.
After Game 5, another one could be hoisted inside the Spurs home court.
For the past two games, the San Antonio Spurs as a team has perfected basketball, and all those passing, touch and extra passes, and unselfish plays are such a joy to watch.
Not for the Miami Heat though, which will be putting their title on the line on Sunday night. Beginning the 2013-14 season, a lot of basketball experts and fans have been looking forward to the probable three-peat of Miami.
Heat players should start facing reality and admit in themselves that getting there won’t be as easy as it looks. Down 1-3 against a formidable San Antonio Spurs in its finest form, the Miami Heat certainly has their backs against the wall.
No team in NBA Finals history has come back from a 1-3 hole, and surely, LeBron James and company know that. But that does not mean doing it is impossible.
With their level of play in the past two games, losing a third straight Playoff game, the first in this Miami Heat era since losing three straight games against the Boston Celtics during the 2010-11 Eastern Conference Finals, is certainly possible.
There is still a glimpse of hope as their main superstar, James has not yet conceded. Of Miami’s ‘Big Three’ only James has been consistent and scored more than 20 points in each of the first four games. With the title on the line, Wade and Bosh are expected to improve their games significantly in order to keep their hopes alive of a three-peat.
Point man Mario Chalmers and other Miami reserves should also contribute enough to compensate the scoring machine that is San Antonio.
