Mandatory Credit: Robert Mayer-USA TODAY SportsAfter two close games that left the series tied 1-1, the Spurs have now blown out the Heat twice in a row, taking a 3-1 series lead.

The hero last night for the Spurs was Kawhi Leonard, who scored 20 points while collecting 14 rebounds.

Leonard also delivered lock-down defense in key moments on LeBron James, who still managed to score 28 with 8 rebounds.

Unfortunately for the Heat, no one else on their team scored more than 12 points, and they struggled to contain the Spurs' multi-faceted attack.

The Spurs out-rebounded the Heat 44-27, and that was the difference maker in this game. The Spurs were led by Leonard and Tim Duncan (11 rebounds), while the Heat didn't have anyone with double digit rebounds.

The Heat now have their back against the wall, and need to win three straight or their dream of winning three straight NBA championships will be shattered.

The Heat were certainly favored coming into the series, but it looks like the Spurs might have their number, despite losing to Miami in the finals last year.

Do you think the Spurs can close it out? Or will the Heat complete an improbable comeback?

Lebron James may be the best player in the world but the San Antonio Spurs are just a flat out better team.
