Miami is 7-1-1 Over last 9 games playing on 1 days rest, 4-1 Over last 5 games following a S.U. win and 9-3-1 Over in Heat last 13 overall. LeBron James and the Miami Heat have a 2-1 lead in the NBA Finals and can move within a win of capturing the title as they host the Oklahoma City Thunder in Game 4 on Tuesday night. James has been sensational so far in the series, dominating at the offensive end while frustrating Thunder superstar Kevin Durant in the process. Durant will need to stay out of foul trouble if Oklahoma City hopes to even the best-of-seven. Shane Battier has made a big difference for the Heat, nailing 11 three-pointers in the first three games allowing James and Dwyane Wade to take the ball to the basket. Oklahoma City is afraid to leave Battier open so they can’t help out as quickly. On the other end, expect a big game from James Harden, who has been missing in action in Games 1 and 3.
