Spurs Win Game 4, Looking for a Ring on Sunday
No Spur has stepped to a microphone and summed up the past two games of these NBA Finals — in which the Spurs outscored the Heat by 40 total points to take a 3-1 lead in the series — as well as LeBron James did Thursday night.
“They’re a high-oiled machine, and they move the ball extremely well,” James said after a 107-86 loss in Game 4. “They put you in so many difficult positions. If you’re not right on time, right on target, they’re going to make you pay for it.”
See, that’s much better than what was said by Gregg Popovich, who previously made no attempt to explain the nearly inexplicable 76 percent shooting first half the Spurs enjoyed in Game 3. He summed up their Game 4 success with relatively tame 57 percent shooting by saying, “Well, if you shoot  percent, you’re in pretty good shape, as long as everything else is copacetic.”
More postgame analysis from Popovich: “I thought we did a better job tonight than we did in Game 3 at the defensive end.”
