James, Wade and Bosh help Miami to comfortable win over the Spurs.
The Miami Heat sealed a 109-93 win in Game 4 of the NBA Finals 2013 against the San Antonio Spurs at the AT&T Center on Thursday night, thus levelling the series 2-2.
LeBron James delivered on a pre-game promise to step up and produce a much improved performance from Game 3, as he led the scoring for the visitors with 33 points.
However, integral to the win was Dwyane Wade’s performance, as he finished with 32 points having found his rhythm on the offensive end. It was a similar story for Chris Bosh, who completed the “Big Three” dominance for Miami as he contributed 20 points.
All three also played significant roles in the defensive part of the game for the defending champions, and coupled with San Antonio’s carelessness with the ball, the outcome of the game became apparent as the fourth quarter unravelled.
Tony Parker appeared to shake off his hamstring strain with an impressive first half performance in which he scored 15 points. However, the Frenchman went scoreless in the second, while his team-mates couldn’t find the same shooting performance as Tuesday night.
Danny Green and Gary Neal showed signs of producing from beyond the arc again, but better defence stifled their play, while Tim Duncan led the scoring with 20 points for the Spurs.
Manu Ginobili’s woes in this series continued, adding just five points in 25 minutes on the court, and depending on Parker’s situation moving forward, the Argentine will need to produce something if Gregg Popovich’s men are to take an advantage to Miami.
