(SportsNetwork.com) - After one of the greatest offensive halves in league history, the San Antonio Spurs will try to put a stranglehold on the NBA Finals when they visit AmericanAirlines Arena for Game 4 against the Miami Heat.
The Spurs shot a Finals record 75.8 percent from the floor in the first half in Tuesday's Game 3. They blitzed the Heat during that first 24 minutes, building a 25-point lead at one point and posting a 111-92 victory.
San Antonio registered 41 first-quarter points and led 71-50 after the first half. The Heat stormed back a bit in the third, but the Spurs were too much. They reclaimed homecourt advantage and snapped Miami's 11-game home winning streak in the postseason dating back to Game 1 of last year's Finals.
