You probably chalked up game 3 domination by the San Antonio Spurs over the Miami Heat as it just being a case of a team being on fire from the outside. Possibly even saying it was an animoly that occasionally comes up in a series but in the end it will all balance out. Well, not in this series, Spurs dominted the Heat again, winning 107-86 to take a commanding 3 to 1 game series lead.
The Spurs werent quite at their record breaking pace as they were in game 3, but were pretty close, finishing with an impressive 57.1 percent from the field and 43 percent from the 3 point line. Kawhi Leonard followed up his 29 point performance from game 3 with another solid effort, scoring a team high 20 points on an efficient 7 for 12 from the field. Tony Parker added 19 points and Patty Mills chipped in with 14 points off the bench, including connection 4 from deep.
Lebron James did his part for the Heat, leading all scorers with 28 points and grabbed 8 rebounds. The other two-thirds of the Big 3 were anything but big; Wade finished with a disappointing 10 points on a horrid 3 for 13 from the field and Bosh nearly as bad, scoring 12 points which was actually good for 2nd in scoring on the night for the Heat.
The Heat dominated from the outset, took a 55-36 lead into halftime and were up by as many as 25 points.
The series now heads back to San Antonio for game 5 on Sunday where the Spurs will look to finish off the Heat to take their 5th NBA title in the last 16 seasons and their first since 2007.
