NBA FINALS:Heat try to stop a machine

(Continued)

It gets a little harder to keep that going when trying for that fourth win, the one the Spurs couldn't quite get last year, when even the real freewheeling teams tend to tighten up a bit.

"I mean, every closeout game is very difficult, for all the obvious reasons," Spurs coach Gregg Popovich said.

Especially if James delivers as so often when the Heat faced elimination, from his 45-point game in Boston in the 2012 Eastern Conference finals, to a triple-double against the Spurs in Game 6 last year, followed by 37 points in Game 7.

He may need to deliver something similar, or a championship reign could be over sooner than expected.
