SAN ANTONIO–LeBron James had a game-high 33 points and 11 rebounds and Dwyane Wade scored 32 as the Miami Heat defeated the San Antonio Spurs 109-93 in game four of the NBA finals on Thursday.

Wade had his first 30-point game of the playoffs and Chris Bosh finished with 20 points and 13 rebounds for the Heat, who levelled the best-of-seven championship series at 2-2.

Miami made sure the league showdown will return to Florida for at least a game six on Tuesday. Pivotal game five is on Sunday in San Antonio.

Miami looked nothing like the team that was humiliated 113-77 in game three as once again they displayed their ability to recover from defeats.

Miami is now a perfect 6-0 following a defeat in the post-season and all six wins have come by double digits. Miami hasn’t lost back-to-back games since January 8 and 10.

Tony Parker had 15 points and 11 assists and Tim Duncan finished with 20 points for the Spurs, who were looking to take a stranglehold on the series after their dominating victory on Tuesday.

Parker was playing with a sore hamstring he injured in the previous game.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra decided to shake up his lineup Thursday by starting forward Mike Miller. James also made good on his guarantee to play better after a dismal performance in the game three loss.

Miami outscored the Spurs 28-17 in the fourth quarter after the teams were tied 49-49 at the half.With Matikas Santos, INQUIRER.net
