That truth cannot be restated enough, and we're all going to be reminded of that over the games ahead. There is no right strategy to shut down James and the Heat any more so than there is a textbook that spells out how to clamp down on Parker and the Spurs. The reason they're here has been shown by the performances around their offensive leaders. All that this game resolved was the likelihood that San Antonio and Miami are probably going to need seven games before the championship is resolved.
