Everyone came into Game 3 expecting to see LeBron James take the spotlight, but it was Gary Neal and Danny Green who combined to steal center stage.
This is already turning out to be a classic series, with things as unpredictable as they are exciting.
Game 1 was as close as you can get, with neither side being able to get any breathing room from the other through all four quarters. In the end things were decided by just four points as Tony Parker scored a fantastic shot as the seconds disappeared.
Then in Game 2 Miami came back strongly, with the Spurs looking like they were a bit out of their depth, turning the ball over time and time again, and giving James and his colleagues too much space and too many clear opportunities. The Heat went through one patch of outscoring the Spurs 33-5 through the third and fourth quarters as they blew out their opponents.
Many expected the Heat to continue their surge and wipe out the Spurs again in Game 3, but things couldn't have been different, and this time there was a massive blowout in the Spurs' favor.
Green and Neal helped the Spurs set an NBA Finals record for the most three pointers by a team – with an amazing 16. In return James had one of his worst games in recent memory.
No one's quite sure what to expect in Game 4 now, but James has indicated that he will come out swinging with everything tonight. Expect fireworks!
