MIAMI — Before the end, even the Heat looked tired of this night. It was like they were trying to assemble a child’s bike with no tools. At some point, they sat down, threw up their hands, and said, “This isn’t working.”
That point was the second quarter in the Heat’s 107-86 loss to San Antonio Thursday night in Game 4 of the NBA Finals. A few days ago, the question was if the Heat could three-peat to win three straight titles.
