Spurs roll again, one win from title
That really got out of hand fast. After a hotly contested two games in San Antonio, the Spurs blitzed the Heat twice in Miami -- including Thursday night's 107-86 rout -- leaving the homecoming team one win away from a fifth championship overall and in the Gregg Popovich/Tim Duncan era. Is there any hope for the Heat?
Thursday's Triple Play
The sports calendar is a fickle thing -- some days we scramble for something, anything, to watch, while other days we thank the tech gods that gave us multiple platforms to watch live sports simultaneously. Thankfully, Thursday is a bounty of riches that starts early in the morning with the 114th U.S. Open, bleeds into the afternoon with the opening of the World Cup and then concludes in the evening with Game 4 of the NBA Finals. Will you be glued to the TV all day? Perhaps coming down (cough) with (cough) something?

Heat, Spurs level in Finals
There were no air conditioning outings. There were no cramps. There was just basketball on Sunday night, and in it the Miami Heat won a tight contest -- 98-96, to be exact -- to level the NBA Finals with the San Antonio Spurs at one game apiece. Where does it go from here? (Well, it goes to Miami for two games.) How will it end?
Heat or Spurs in NBA Finals?
For the first time in 16 years, we have a rematch in the NBA Finals. After the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs finished off the Indiana Pacers and Oklahoma City Thunder, respectively, they are set to square off one year after the Heat used an improbable comeback to win their second straight title. A win for Miami would put LeBron James & Co. in rarefied three-peat territory. A victory for the Spurs would give Gregg Popovich and Tim Duncan their elusive fifth championship.
