The 2014 NBA Finals live stream and TV coverage continues tonight from Miami as the Heat and Spurs get ready to play an all important Game 3 from the American Airlines Arena. After LeBron James had to be carried from the court in the fourth quarter of Miami's Game 1 loss, James and the Heat evened the score in Game 2 with a thrilling 98-96 win. Tonight's crowd in Miami for Game 3's NBA Finals live streaming action will be at a fever pitch as the Heat look to continue piling up the championship rings.
According to a Sportsline report on June 10, James was far from the player who couldn't walk to the bench in Game 1 due to severe leg cramps as he scored 35 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and dished out 3 assists in the Heat's Game 2 win. Even though the media and fans questioned James' ability in Game 1, LeBron and the Heat accomplished what they wanted - a split in Texas. For LBJ and the Heat, Game 1 is history and there is no need to keep talking about it.
"What happened on Thursday was Thursday," James said. "My whole focus was how I was going to try to help this team even this up and just try to make some plays."
James and the Heat will look to take a 2-1 series lead tonight as Miami continues their drive towards a three-peat. Of course both of these teams would love to win Game 3 tonight and take a 2-1 series lead, but this series just seems destined to go 6 or 7 games. One thing both of these teams have proved in the past when they face each other, there is no such thing as momentum.
It's tempting to think that the Heat will roll at home tonight, but the Spurs are way too talented to roll over just because the action has switched to South Beach. This game should and probably will come down to the final shot!
Las Vegas odds makers have the Miami Heat listed as a 4 point favorite for tonight's Game 3 with the over/under number set at 197.5. Both Miami and San Antonio had two of the best home records in the NBA this season, but the Spurs were the best road team during the 2013-14 regular season, finishing 30-11 away from the AT&T Center. It will be interesting to see how tonight's Game 3 plays out.
Fans can catch tonight's Game 3 action on ABC nationally and streaming live online through your PC, smart phones and tablets via Watch ESPN and ABC.go.com. Tip-off is scheduled for 9 p.m. ET.
