NBA Finals: Can Heat catch winning streak?

NBA Finals: The Miami Head take on the San Antonio Spurs Sunday in Game Five of the NBA finals. With the best-of-seven series tied at 2-2, a loss would mean the Heat would need two straight wins at home to keep their crown as champions.

Stringing together a two-game win streak sounds routine for the reigning champion Miami Heat, but they have failed to do it for more than three weeks and must do so in the NBA Finals or risk losing their crown.

A victory in Sunday's Game Five of the best-of-seven series would give the Heat their first winning streak since May 22. A loss would put them in an uncomfortable position of having to win two straight at home to repeat as champions.

"If we don't do two, we won't win a championship. I wasn't that smart in school, but I do know that. The numbers don't add up," Miami guard Dwyane Wade told a news conference on Saturday.

 

"We have to find a way to put a string together. And hopefully our mentality and our play in Game Four can take over to the next game."
