Video: Heat's Chris Bosh dunk beaten by halftime buzzer in Game 4 against Spurs

Friday June 14th, 2013

SAN ANTONIO -- With 10 seconds remaining in the second quarter of Game 4 of the Finals, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra took a timeout to draw up a play that might break a 49-49 tie with the Spurs. Everything went perfectly until Chris Bosh was a split-second late completing a wide-open dunk attempt.

The halftime buzzer nullified Bosh's dunk as replays showed the lights engage as the clock hit zero with Bosh still holding the ball above his head with both hands in preparation for the slam. Miami's All-Star forward/center twirled his finger in hopes of engaging a video review of the play, but that effort went for naught.

The Spurs hold a 2-1 series lead over the Heat. Game 5 is set for Sunday in San Antonio's AT&T Center.
