SAN ANTONIO – The question in Game 5 of the NBA Finals on Sunday will be which teams are going to show up.
That goes for both the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs.
After a thrilling Game 1, won by the Spurs on Tony Parker's clinching basket, the teams haven't delivered a classic since. The Heat won by 19, lost by 36 and cruised by 16. The last few minutes of each game have looked more like an October exhibition than a mid-June championship clash.
Maimi's Dwyane Wade says fans shouldn't worry. He expects Game 5 to be the best of the series.
In finals knotted at 2-all, the winner of Game 5 has gone on to win the series 20 out of 27 times.
