The Miami Heat's season is in danger after their 107-86 loss to the San Antonio Spurs in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Down 3-1 in the series, the Heat head to San Antonio needing a Game 5 win to force things back to Miami for a potential Game 6 on Tuesday.
LeBron James and Dwyane Wade got off to a cold start, shooting just 4-14 from the field in the first half. James took over in the second half, finishing with a game high 28 points, but it was not enough.
Defense continued to be an issue for the Heat. San Antonio outrebounded Miami by 17.
The last two losses are the first back to back defeats in the playoffs for the Heat since the 2012 Eastern Conference Finals. Only eight teams in NBA Playoffs history have come back from a 3-1 deficit and none of those historic rallies occurred in the NBA Finals.
Game 5 from the AT&T Center is Sunday at 8:00.
