After a pair of surprise stars lifted them to a blowout win in Game 3 of the NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs have a chance to push LeBron James and the Miami Heat to the brink of elimination on Thursday night.

The Heat were hit with a barrage of three-pointers on Tuesday, most of them coming from San Antonio's Gary Neal and Danny Green. While those two were having career nights, LeBron James was held under 20 points for the third game in a row. The four-time MVP had just four points at halftime of Game 3 and later summed up his performance by saying that he "played like shit."
"I take full responsibility for our team's performance last night," James said on Wednesday, via CBS Sports. "Me as a leader, I can't afford to perform like I did last night and expect us to win on the road, it's that simple. So I'm putting all the pressure on my chest, on my shoulders to come through for our team. That's the way it is."
Will LeBron get back on track in Game 4? Will the Spurs' shooters stay hot? How serious is Tony Parker's hamstring injury? Can the Spurs win without him at full speed?
