Spurs' Frontline Punishing Heat

In the fourth consecutive year that the Heat have made the NBA Finals, one weakness has remained — power in the paint. The Heat are small inside, and the entire league knows it. The power and passing ability of Spurs’ big men like Duncan, Tiago Splitter and Boris Diaw must be used to punish Miami in the paint and cool the Heat’s chances of pulling off a three-peat. It can be done. Oh yeah, laying some hard fouls on King James in the lane would be a good idea too. (Photo: Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
