In Game 3 of the 2013 NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs put it all together with some new names, while the big names didn't show up for the Miami Heat. The Miami Heat only managed a combined 43 points in the Game 3 loss to the Spurs.

Udonis Haslem and Mario Chalmers were particularly bad. If Spurs coach Gregg Propovich is going to leave those two open to double team LeBron James, Haslem and Chalmers need to make their open shots.

The biggest problem the Spurs now have to face is the Tony Parker hamstring injury in Game 3. Sure, the Spurs have received some perimeter support from newcomers Danny Green and Gary Neal, but missing a 2013 MVP candidate like Parker is a big deal.

Speaking of Green and Neal, the two combined for 51 points and 6, 3-pointers in Game 3's crushing defeat. The Spurs as a team shot 16 for 32 behind the arc. The Spurs ended up winning Game 3 by 36 points with Tony Parker hurt and Tim Duncan having a sub-par game. Both teams know that's not going to happen again in Game 4 tonight.

Maybe the most underrated stat, that doesn't show up in the box score, is Kawhi Leonard's incredible defensive play against LeBron James, not allowing "The King" more than 20 points in the entire 2013 NBA Finals. It may be the key to the entire series.

From Game 4 on, LeBron James's mindset needs to be ultra-aggressive. He only took two shots in the 1st quarter of Game 3 and only 4 points at the end of the first half.

Can LeBron James overcome the lack of support from his role players tonight as the Miami Heat take on the San Antonio Spurs in whats bound to be an epic Game 4 of the 2013 NBA Finals? Game time starts at 9:00 PM ET on ABC.
