SAN ANTONIO (AP) - The Miami Heat have changed their starting lineup for Game 4 of the NBA Finals, with Mike Miller opening the game at forward and Udonis Haslem coming off the bench.
Miller made 10 of his 11 shots off the bench in the first three games of the series against San Antonio, including 9 of 10 from 3-point range. By putting Miller on one of the wings to open the game, LeBron James would likely get more time in the post and force an adjustment from a Spurs' defense that has kept the reigning MVP largely bottled up so far in the series.
Miller has started only one other game in these playoffs, that being Game 4 of Miami's first-round series against Milwaukee.
