So, the Spurs blew the Heat out in game 3- shooting roughly 1000% in the first quarter, setting an NBA record for shooting in a half, and making Miami turn the ball over numerous times in order to offset their own hot shooting.
For me, there are two big themes in this series are. The first: can the Spurs keep up the mind boggling ball movement to continue to get open shots (because there really isn't anything Miami can do to stop it if the Spurs are on point)? The second: can Miami generate enough open looks for its role players, and then can they make those shots? Even having the best player in the series (and arguably three of the top five, depending on which versions of Wade and Manu Ginobili show up) Miami is not going to be able to beat San Antonio four times with their stars taking 20 incredibly difficult shots a game. Regardless, they definitely have to get Chris Bosh more involved, they probably need to play Shane Battier because they desperately need more defensive help, and they probably need Kawhi Leonard in foul trouble.
While the Spurs certainly aren't going to shoot 76% in a half again, if they continue to get open looks, they can certainly shoot 60%. Even if you manage to stifle the ball movement for a quarter or even a half, knocking San Antonio out of rhythm in the process, if you let up for an instant there's no telling when the Spurs will flip that switch again and score 12 points in two minutes.

Also, feel free to discuss the World Cup in here. I'm sure at least a few people care about that (myself included).
