After taking a dump on the floor of AmericanAirlines Arena Thursday night, the Miami Heat are down 3-1 to the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals, a series deficit that no team has come back from in Finals history.
Of course, LeBron James knows the challenge at hand.
LeBron: "We put ourselves in a position where it is about making history."

Asked about it, Chris Bosh answered in his usual direct way.
Odds are against Miami winning 3 straight now. Bosh: "I don't care about odds. Odds are for people that can't do it."

The Heat will be heading back to San Antonio for Game 5 Sunday. The Spurs wiped the floor with them in Miami, and the team is right to be focusing on improving their play more so than on the Everest-like mountain climb in front of them. If any team can do it, though, it’s the Heat. This team is headed by one of the best players ever, are unconventional in nature with their positionless basketball, and have yet to play their best game this series.
The chances of Miami losing three straight are slim. I know Bosh doesn’t like odds, apparently, but they are in favor of Miami at least winning Sunday. That would send the series back to Miami with a chance to send the series to seven games.
It sure would be historical.
