11:49pm End of Game - Spurs 107 - Heat 86. It looked so easy for San Antonio in all phases of the game. Eight guys with at least six points, and every Spur scored. The Heat don't seem to have any answer for what the Spurs are doing on either end of the floor. LeBron is still shooting and scoring well in the series, and is statistically having a good series, but clearly it isn't enough right now. Miami needs some answers quickly if they've going to even make this a competitive series.

11:33pm Q4 2:43 The Spurs are up 22, and have't led by less than 13 in the entire second half. They're going up 3-1 in the series with two home games to win the title, including game five. Of the previous 223 NBA series to go to a 3-1 series score eight (3.5%) of the teams down 3-1 have won the series, including none in the NBA finals. The Heatles got together to make history, and they'll have to make it to win the finals this year.

11:21pm Q4 7:37 - The Spurs look like the best team on the planet. The effort from Tim Duncan on that play where he had the ball stolen, and then came back with the block was amazing. There is the kind of passion that the Heat have been missing all night, that the Spurs have had basically every minute of this series. 

11:15pm Q4 9:40 - Haslem in the game, the Heat appearing to play a little harder with him in. Still down by three touchdowns, but they look like they're competing more. 

11:05pm Q3 9.5 seconds - LeBron has 19 points on 7-of-7 shooting in the quarter, and the rest of the team is 1-of-8 with just 2 points. Its the quietest big quarter he might have ever had. After three quarters the Spurs are ahead by 24 points. 

10:45pm Q3 5:39 - The Spurs look so calm. Boris Diaw is killing Dwyane Wade right now, and the Spurs are back up by 20 points. They're shooting 57% now. It might be a bit early, but I don't know who would or should be the Finals MVP, if the Spurs are able to actually make short work of the Heat. 

10:37pm Q3 8:00 - Miami seems more alive in the first three and a half minutes on offense. Defensively, San Antonio is still getting all the looks they want from everywhere. LeBron is in rhythm it seems though...and then Wade flies in for an offensive rebound. Perhaps some passion from the HEat?

10:20pm Halftime - Spurs lead by 19, 55-36. The Spurs are thoroughly dominant again, and they've completely dominated five of the last six quarters played in this series. The Spurs shot 56% from the floor to Miami's 35%, and out rebounded the Heat 25-14. LeBron only took seven shots, and Dwyane Wade looks very slow. The play of the first half though was the Kawhi Leonard put-back dunk. The Heat didn't put a body on him, and just stood around looking for a rebound. They don't look very passionate, and It'll be interesting to see how Miami opens the second half.

10:09pm Q2 1:36 - Dwyane Wade looks like he might be hurting. He's not closing out on anything defensively. Tony Parker looks very healthy, and so does everyone in the front court for the Spurs, who are ahead by 20 right now. 53-33 Spurs lead.

10:00pm Q2 5:20 - After game three, Erik Spolestra said the Heat were going to have to play harder if they wanted to win game four.  The Spurs have steals, deflections, and offensive rebounds whenever they want and are diving for loose balls. They're taking the fight to Miami.

9:52pm Q2 7:03 - The Spurs are getting so many deflections. Even though Allen got a three and Bosh got free throws on the last two possessions. The Spurs are so active on defense right now.

9:46pm Q2 8:43 - Mark Jackson just hit the nail on the head on the broadcast. The Spurs are playing with such a great deal of urgency right now, and Miami doesn't seem to be.

9:38pm End of Q1 - The Spurs 'only' shooting 56% in the first quarter, and only with 26 points this time. I'm sure they'll take it, but still bad news for Miami, who can't seem to get out of their own way. Bosh with six points leads Miami after one, and Danny Green and Tony Parker each have six points for the Spurs. San Antonio has outscored Miami in all four first quarters in this series, by an average margin of 29.8-20.3. In three of the first quarters, the Spurs have scored 26 points.

9:33pm Q1 2:41 - Shane Battier making an appearance. Probably for defense reasons only. Also Matt Bonner with a nice floater. #TeamSpurs

9:29pm Q1 4:19 - LeBron just needed to run to the loo. He's keeping well hydrated, we know that! And Wade misses two FT's for the Heat.

9:23pm Q1 4:59 - Bosh has been really aggressive. Driving to the basket, and with the jumper. It will be interesting if he's able to continue this...also LEBRON JOGGING TO THE LOCKER ROOM!!! Heat fans hoping he just has to run to the bathroom. 

9:17pm Q1 7:30 - Miami still turning the ball over a good deal, and the Spurs are getting some really good looks. The fact that all of them aren't just going in, like in game three is saving the Heat early

9:10pm Just before tip-off, .check out the shirts that the Heat are giving out at the American Airlines Arena in Miami for game four

9:02pm Welcome to the GiveMeSport NBA Finals game four live stream. The Spurs lead the Heat 2-1 in the finals. In the previous 35 NBA Finals series that have gone to a 2-1 series score, the winner of game three (in this case the Spurs) has gone on to win 30 times. The last time a team down 2-1 in a series won the finals? The 2013 Miami Heat, over the San Antonio Spurs. I'm locked in, are you ready?
