Miami eventually took the lead with 2 minutes to go. Miami was shooting 61% from the field.

Wade had a couple shots and steal, and then on transition dished an assist to LeBron James, widening the lead to 9 that forced San Antonio to call a timeout under nine minutes in the first-half.

San Antonio tried to cut the lead. James committed an offensive foul, but Miami quickly recovered the ball after blocking a shot by San Antonio and then Wade got a soft touch for a 2 to earn his 14th point, which widened Miami’s lead to 10. Wade has been attacking the basket, putting pressure on San Antonio’s defense. Parker tried to respond and set up Leonard for a two just below the basket.

Parker and Boris Diaw, who was sidelined in Game 3, did tremendous shots as the clock was winding down to end the second quarter. San Antonio successfully made an 11-2 run to finish up the period.

Score was nailed at 58 apiece when the opposing teams go against each other on defense, exchanging blocks and shots as they try to capture the lead. Wade had foul trouble early in the third period. He commited his fourth while trying to block a taller Tim Duncan, who started to pick up his game.

Mario Chalmers, who’s been silent in the first-half, nailed a three to put his team on top by five. Miami made seven straight points in just a brief period while Parker was resting. Leonard fought back, performed an awesome drive to the basket and drew a foul for a huge three-point play.

After a quick timeout, Chalmers made his second 3-point shot at the corner with 3 minutes remaining in the third. Miami’s defense has been terrific as San Antonio started to miss some shots. Chris Bosh took care of the boards for the Heat before he rested for the rest of the period.
