03:02 AM ET 06.12 | The Miami Heat are a team that just doesn't get blown out unless they're having a really bad night. But the Miami Heat is also a team that just doesn't have a really bad night in the NBA Finals. However, those two things converged on the Heat as they were blown away by the San Antonio Spurs 113-77 in perhaps the worst loss the team has endured during the Big 3 era. Head coach Erik Spoelstra wasn't making any excuses after the game, and stated numerous times that the team got what they deserved after the way they played against the Spurs. After repeating the Heat got what they deserved three times, Spoelstra elaborated on the obvious. The question everyone is wondering now is how will this effect the Heat moving forward in the series. LeBron James is not the kind of player that takes losing well and he takes 36-point blowout losses in the NBA Finals even worse. So will this motivate the Heat to come back with a vengeance in Game 4 or will LeBron continue to get no help and the 36-point loss will be the defining moment in the series in a negative way for Miami?

Have you been watching the games? The quiet Leonard and Green may not be arrogant but they've combine to slow down the King to a 17 PPG average for the first 3 games. The King better show up or else it's over...

To be fair, there is not much a coach can do when 2 almost-scrubs start shooting 3s like that. That's not happening again.

That being said, he surely needs to find a way to open up lanes for Wade and James to operate. Saying KL and Green are playing great done isn't cutting it. Set better screens or misdirections or ask Bosh to go deep in the paint and dish. Do SOMETHING!!!
