The Spurs can close out the Heat on Sunday

The San Antonio Spurs are one game away from winning their fifth NBA championship in team history after a sound 107-86 victory over the Miami Heat on Thursday.

No team in the history of the NBA Finals has come back from a 3-1 deficit to win a best of seven series. Therefore, the Heat are facing what seems to be an impossible task up to this point. What makes the task of coming back that much more difficult for the Heat is that the next game, Game 5, is back at the AT&T Center in San Antonio.

Still, with the series firmly in their control, the Spurs know what they are up against on Sunday when they suit up with closing this series out on their minds.

“They’re the two-time champs, they’re a great team and there is still one more game,” Spurs guard Tony Parker said. “We have to win one more game.”

One more game and the Spurs will avenge the loss to the Heat in last year’s Finals, a series the Spurs led 3-2 before the Heat won the final two games at home sparked by an amazing fourth quarter comeback in Game 6. With a win on Sunday, Tim Duncan will claim his fifth NBA championship, going 5-1 in the NBA Finals, while a loss by the Heat will drop Lebron James to 2-3 in NBA Finals play.
