World, that's it for coverage of game four of the NBA Finals. We will be back for Game Five on Monday. Please note the game will start at 10am. Check out the SMH Basketball site for a report from the match. 

Over and out.

Now for the winner of today's competition. Amid a host of great responses the winner has been declared...

(drum roll) .............

KatieA978 is the winner for this comment about Patty Mills. Katie's comment was:

''who is waving the towels now?? Patty Mills is too busy these days with actually playing and scoring!''

We will be in touch with Katie via email to arrange for her to be sent the book Michael Jordan: The Life.

Thanks to everyone for entering.

 

What a demolition job that was. The writing was on the wall early when the Spurs were getting open shots with ease. They didn't shoot with the same accuracy as game three, but they still shot well enough to score 107 points. 

That's it. All over. San Antonio win game four 105-86. Another superb performance from the Spurs, who lead the series 3-1. They aren't there yet, but the trophy is within touching distance. Final score: San Antonio by Miami 107 -86

Aaron Baynes scores for the Spurs. All 13 players on the San Antonio roster have points to their name. Talk about a team effort. 

Is this the end for the Heat? Can they bounce back from two straight losses of this nature? They now need to win three straight games to make it three titles in a row. 

Tim Duncan and Tony Parker are resting up on the Spurs bench. Aaron Baynes is seeing his first court time for the night. SAS 99-77

Those loyal Heat fans have all left. They turn up late and leave early. It doesn't make a lot of sense. 

As the game rolls towards a certain San Antonio win, the Spurs aren't taking their foot off the throttle. They lead by 22 with Kawhi Leonard still leading the way at both ends of the court. SAS 95-73

Here's another chance to vote in the greatest basketball movie of all time poll.

Why Ben? Why?

 

Well said.

 

Miami have reduced the margin 18. Well, they did until Kawhi Leonard scored on another nice move. He has 20 points in this game. That's followed by another Boris Diaw dime to Tim Duncan. SAS 93-71

By the way, if there are any NBA general managers logged in to the blog, Patty Mills is a free agent at season's end. Whether he stays in San Antonio or heads elsewhere, he deserves a BIG pay rise for next season.

Patty Mills has as many points in this game as Mario Chalmers in this entire series (14).

.@ABarrMLA should lobby to award @Patty_Mills the keys to Canberra. #nba

— Jon Tuxworth(@Tuxy81) June 13, 2014

Patty Mills has 14 points already - he had 20 over Games 1-3 combined. His 2014 #NBAPlayoffs high is 18 #NBAFinals

— NBA.com/Stats (@nbastats) June 13, 2014

No NBA Finals team has ever come back from a 3-1 deficit since the championship series began in 1950.

Timout SAS 89 MIA 66

And Popovich has now benched Mills. Boooooo

Patty Mills hits a three-pointer on the first play after the timeout then draws an offensive foul from "Not so Super" Mario Chalmers SAS 87 MIA 66

There's a fair chance that Aussie Aron Baynes will get some burn in the final quarter with the result just about beyond doubt. Let's hope the commentators don't call him a Kiwi this time. Timeout Spurs SAS 84 MIA 66 with 9.05 left

Patty Mills has been balling this series!

— Mike Vick (@MikeVick) June 13, 2014

Patty Mills just hit his third three-pointer of the game. He now has 11 points. He is making a great contribution. SAS 84-61

Any towel waving Patty? Something?

The final quarter is underway. Miami need a miracle. They start with a Birdman Andersen dunk. SAS 81-59

LeBron finally misses as the third quarter ends. Spurs lead by 24. This is even more shocking than game three. Once can be explained. This, on the other hand is a whole new realm. SAS 81-57

LeBron hits another three. It is pretty simple. When he doesn't have the ball the Heat are terrible. Really, really bad. Kawhi Leonard just looked to posterise Birdman Andersen. SAS 80-57

LeBron James has 16 points in the third quarter and the margin is more than it was at half time. If things remain like this you can't criticise James. He has got zero help. Next best for Miami is Chris Bosh with eight points. Next best: Ray Allen with six.

Just when you thought things could not get any worse for Miami, Kawhi Leonard hits a three. The Spurs are cruising. Vastly superior offence, vastly superior rebounding and an opposition that looks very tired. Miami can't stop the Spurs. SAS 73-49

Dwyane Wade is having a shocker. He is now 1 of 10 from the field. At the other end, another superb possession ends with a Duncan dunk SAS 70-49

Miami call for time out after Boris Diaw schools them again. This guy is having a great series. Miami look like a beaten team. LeBron is going to have to engineer a performance for the ages. Is he up to it? Is anyone up to it? SAS 68-48

Off the time out, Spurs dump the ball inside to Tim Duncan. He scores in the low post. That is followed by a Chris Bosh miss and Dwyane Wade foul. Boris Diaw makes one from the line and Kawhi Leonard then scores. SAS 66-48

LeBron is doing it on his own. He has 10 points in the first four minutes of the second half. The margin is back to 13. San Antonio take a time out. SAS 61-48

Tony Parker has it cooking. He is 8 of 12 from the field. Miami's offence is looking better this quarter. The Spurs are still getting good looks. They have just missed a couple of shots. SAS 61-46

The second half starts with Boris Diaw hitting a jumper. SAS 57-36

Tony Parker is leading the way for the Spurs with 12 first half points. Danny Green has nine and Kawhi Leonard and Patty Mills have eight each.

For Miami, LeBron James leads the way with nine points.

Thanks for the honesty Daniel. I'm sure it was a good look.

 

In concerning news, Space Jam has taken the lead as the greatest basketball movie of all time. What about Hoosiers people? Jimmy Chitwood is exactly who the Heat need right now.

Here is a look at the key stats from the first half:

Spurs: 56% shooting, 46% 3-pt shooting, 12 assists, 25 rebounds, 7 turnovers

Heat: 35% shooting, 40% 3-pt shooting, 14 rebounds, 4 assists, 7 turnovers

LeBron James hits a shot-clock beating three pointer to cut the lead to 19 points at half time. The Spurs are in control at the main break. They are getting whatever they want at the offensive end. They shot 56 per cent from the field for the half. Miami look lost. SAS 55-36

I hope would-be Miami player Carmelo Anthony is watching this. Miami isn't the place for you Melo.

Spurs are playing like a team possessed. Whole team has only one goal: WIN.

— Matthew Dellavedova(@matthewdelly) June 13, 2014

Patty Mills is back on. A three-point basket follows and the Spurs lead by 20 points. Yes, you heard it right. 20 points. Mills has eight points. SAS 53-33

Dwyane Wade is back to the free-throw line. He reduces the margin to 15. Miami need to cut the margin over the final two minutes of the first half. Their fans need a reason to believe, as do the players.

 

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich at a recent time out.

''Now he have a lead again we can't be conservative. But we don't need home runs. The ball can't stick. It needs to keep moving.''

Tim Duncan is fouled and hits both from the foul line. This is becoming a rout.  SAS 46-28

 

There is a Gloria Estefan sighting. In news on the court, Miami are struggling to turn the beat around.

 

The Spurs are rolling. Manu Ginobili hits a three. Miami are really struggling to stop the Spurs getting whatever shots they want. SAS 42-28

Boris Diaw. Beautiful work. What a passing game. This guy is so good to watch. Tiago Splitter is the lucky recipient on that occasion. SAS 35-23

The superior passing skills of the Spurs are to the fore once again. Their players are all good passers who don't have a selfish bone among them. When basketball is played like this it is a thing of beauty. Heat call a time out. They need to figure out how to slow the rampant San Antonio offence. SAS 33-20

Patty Mills make assists on back-to-back Spurs baskets. Another Danny Green three opens up a 14-point lead.

SAS 31-17

The second quarter starts, with Tiago Splitter converting from close range. SAS 28-17

That's it for the first quarter. The Spurs are shooting 56 per cent from the field. It's not quite the magic start from game three but it is still rather impressive. SAS 26-17

Patty Mills out paces the Heat defence to score again. He has five quick points. 

Patty Mills - LeBronstopper.

Mills just hit a three-point with his first shot. He is really making every post a winner during the finals. SAS 22-13

Kawhi Leonard has a basket waved away. He was unlucky there. Spurs still lead and in good news for Aussie hoops fans, Patty Mills is on the court. SAS 19-13

 

Dwyane Wade is off to the free-throw line. In better news, LeBron James has returned to the bench. SAS 15-10

In a concerning sight for Heat fans, LeBron James is heading back to the locker room. He was running, but there is still a cause for concern. SAS 13-10

Dwyane Wade stems the pain with a nice basket and Chris Bosh follows with a drive to the hoop. SAS 13-8

The Spurs are finding their feet at the offensive end. Danny Green hits a three and Tony Parker scores on an uncontested jumpshot. SAS 10-4

Tim Duncan scores San Antonio's first points. It is quickly followed by a Tony Parker basket. SAS 4-2

Chris Bosh starts the scoring with a driving lay up. Spurs have been static on their first two possessions. MIA 2-0

The Spurs will start the game with Boris Diaw in place of Tiago Splitter.

Players are stepping onto the court to start the match. AmericanAirlines Arena needs to get the Heat off to a quick start.

For those of you who haven't read it yet, here is a link to a great yarn on Patty Mills from Jon Tuxworth. Well worth a read. Click here to read the story.

Now onto a bit of pre-game chatter.

Will the Spurs maintain their hot shooting form from game three?

Will the Heat respond in a match they cannot afford to lose?

Will Mario Chalmers do anything useful for Miami?

Can Kawhi Leonard repeat his game three heroics?

These questions, and many more will be answered over the coming hours.

 

Now here is the second poll of the day. What's your favourite basketball movie? New school or old school? Cartoon or utter nonsense? Have your say.

    - jordan never lost an nba finals. Lbj already has
    - lbj has likely 4 hall of famers playing on the heat! People forget wade won a championship by himself...
    - mj built the bulls. Lbj didnt have the patience. Its just a copout to form miami. Imagine jordan had left bulls to join barkley/malone because he cldnt win
    -lbj actually plays mediocre defence. It is reliant on athleticism.
    - the game has changed. Without handchecking, todays game is ideal for perimeter players. Shld read some articles about how many people think mj wld AVERAGE 40+ppg in the league today

      Why would Heat want to enlist yet another shooting guard? They have Wade, Lebron, Ray Allen, Chalmers and half the time Chris Bosh seems to take the role of SG.

      What they really need is a true PG (Rajon Rando) and a heavy weight Center.

Players like Pippen, Rodman, Paxson, Armstrong, Harper, & our own Aussie Luc Longley, were all great players of their time & helped MJ achieve what he did. I actually rate Scottie Pippen up there with MJ :D

      @ Late1 - agreed, I only mentioned the few who came to mind at the time :)

    • Whoa...the rest of the Bulls were GOOD players. Not great players. Their record outside of Jordan, and Pippen's career without Jordan, show this. And Luc Longley was so far from being a good player that even HE knew it. What the Bulls had, that Heat don't - was a superstar with incredibly good role-players. The Heat bare have this, which is why they're being beaten by a team that is much better oiled as a unit.

    • @tsengan, in fairness, inch for inch Rodman's arguably the greatest rebounder of all time. Phil Jackson called him the fittest man ever to play basketball. He wasn't just a good player.

    • @ tsengan - we could never know what MJ's career would've been like without Pippen either? They fed off each other so brilliantly, knew each others games inside & out, so that is why I'll still stick to my statement :P
