NBA Finals: Spurs vs. Heat, Game 3 Game Thread

The Spurs and Heat will spar in Game 3 from San Antonio with the Finals tied at 1-1.

USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Heat looked tough to beat in Game 2 of the NBA Finals from Miami, but now the Heat must take on the San Antonio Spurs on their home floor.

I don't expect either team to panic if they fall behind 2-1 in the series, but it seems like the Spurs should have a greater sense of urgency to open their three-game home set with a win to squash the drubbing they took on South Beach.

Also, it appears that Brian Shaw is closing in on the Clippers job and now the Nets are taking a serious look at Jason Kidd to coach next season. Kidd actually played like a coach on the floor for the Knicks in the playoffs. Certainly didn't look like a player any longer.

On the draft front, Chad Ford updated his Big Board with Nerlens Noel sitting at No. 1 on the list. At No. 23, Ford has none other than Giannis Antetokounmpo, a player I'm not sure fits the Pacers needs just because I don't think I could ever get used to typing his last name. GA rose to No. 23 from No. 29 in Ford's last listing of his Top 30 draft prospects. Ford has Victor Oladipo in the No. 2 slot behind Noel and Cody Zeller locked in at No.10.

Any other news of interest?
