The San Antonino Spurs are on the brink of their fifth championship in the Tim Duncan and Gregg Popovich era. The Spurs defeated the Miami Heat 107-86 to take a commanding 3-1 series lead. According to ESPN, no team in NBA Finals history has come back from a 3-1 deficit.

"I believe in my guys," Heat big man Chris Bosh told reporters after the game. "If any one can do it, it's us."

The Spurs have looked dominant on the road beating the Heat by a combined 40 points in Games 3 and 4.

However, the Spurs say they are not ready to put it in neutral just yet. Spurs veteran Tim Duncan told reporters after the game that it's important to close this team out quickly.

"We don't want to give them any life," said Duncan. "We're going to use these two days to really get rested up, come out on Sunday and lay it on the line."

The series returns to San Antonio on Sunday where the Heat won their only game of the series in Game 2.
