Game 4 was under way last night and the San Antonio Spurs vs Miami Heat live stream free was shocking for some viewers and NBA fans.
In a game where people expected the Miami Heat to bounce back from a 111-92 blowout in their own homecourt, the San Antonio Spurs was the better team on both ends of the court as they dominated the defending champions in Game 4 of their best of seven NBA Finals series at the American Airlines Arena in Miami Florida.
Coming fresh from his career 29-point performance, Kawhi Leonard once again played big for the Spurs as he tallied 20 points, 14 boards, 3 assists and 3 steals. But this time, he’s got plenty of help from veteran point guard Tony Parker who listed 19 points and 2 dimes.
San Antonio blistered to a hot start in the first quarter, unleashing a 13-2 bomb in the first few minutes of action to dictate the tempo of the game. The Spurs led 26-17 by the end of the first quarter.
When basketball fans thought Miami is already gearing for a comeback, San Antonio proved them wrong once more as the four-time defending champions opened up a 55-33 spread by the end of the first half, behind Parker and Leonard.
Special mention is also due to Boris Diaw who flirted with a triple-double with 8 points, 9 rebounds and 9 assists. His playmaking from the post was particularly effective against the oftentimes tentative Heat defense.
While the Heat shot pretty well from the field at 45.1 percent, the Spurs were still way ahead shooting 57.1 on the floor. This is primarily due to San Antonio’s great passing, which always leads to an open man.
Meanwhile, Dwyane Wade had an off night to say the least, finishing with only 10 points on 3-13 shooting. The other member of Miami’s Big Three, Chris Bosh had 12 in the game. In comparison, the duo of Leonard and Danny Green contributed 34 points for San Antonio.
The NBA Finals will head back to the AT&T Center in San Antonio for the possible clincher by the Spurs, to finish its revenge of last year’s heart-breaking loss to the Heat in the Finals.
