The Miami Heat need to win Game 5 of the NBA Finals or they’ll be eliminated from the postseason and their run at history will be over. That’s something we thought we’d be saying but it’s the reality of the situation that Miami Heat find themselves in as we enter Game 5 of the NBA Finals.
Despite everything the Heat have done, they can’t seem to stop the San Antonio Spurs and it’s something that LeBron James is beyond frustrated about.
LeBron: “We’ve watched film where we’ve been on top of exactly what they’re doing, and they still made shots.”

Something that may help the Heat is having Udonis Haslem back in the lineup as he was the only player who seemed capable of being able to stop Tim Duncan. He may not play, but there’s a good chance that Haslem will be in the game at some point, even if it’s limited minutes.
Asked about using Haslem more in Game 5, Spoelstra, “Possibly. He’s on my mind. These are the types of games where he’s proven himself.”
