Tony Parker's clutch circus shot in the final seconds of Game 1 sealed a win for San Antonio. But the Spurs' Big 3 was overwhelmed in the second half of Game 2 by an offensive explosion from LeBron James and Mario Chalmers.

Tied up at 1-1, the series shifts to San Antonio for the next three games, where the Heat are just 3-22 in their last 25 games.

"It doesn't matter," James said of the 2-3-2 Finals format, via the Associated Press. "Two best teams in the NBA at this point. Both teams have won and can win on each other's floor. So it's not a biggie."

Will LeBron's supporting cast come through again to give Miami a 2-1 series lead? Or will the home team give Screaming Spurs Lady something to shout about?
