SAN ANTONIO (AP) — LeBron James took questions for 15 minutes Saturday, then offered a query of his own.
“Why not us?”
Such was the mood for the Miami Heat. Down 3-1 to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, the Heat know the odds of winning a third straight championship are overwhelmingly slim — especially with Game 5 deep in the heart of Texas on
But Heat coach Erik Spoelstra says he wants his team to embrace the enormity of the challenge, and James points out that there’s a first time for everything. No team has ever successfully rallied from 3-1 down in the finals.
As for the Spurs, they know what’s coming. Forward Tim Duncan says he expects the Heat “to come out and give us their best punch possible.”
