On Sunday night, 'Cramp-Gate' seemed like a distant memory as LeBron James reminded us why he is the greatest player in the world.

Game 2 was a back and forth battle with no team having greater than a 5-point lead. James caught fire in the second half scoring 33 of his 35 points. Coming off the victory with the series tied 1-1, we travel back to Miami where the Heat have an 8-0 home record this postseason.

With the cool temperatures of American Airline Arena in Miami, James should have no trouble with cramps. He looked focused in Game 2 and tore up the painted area. James also found his jumper, knocking down 4 FG's in 51-seconds. Look for James to light up the scoreboard on his home floor.

In order for the Spurs to steal a game from Miami, they need better play from their 'Second 3.' The Spurs 'Second 3' includes Leonard, Green and Diaw, who have yet to have breakout games. Leonard and Green got into early foul trouble in Game 2, which lead to their lack of defense on James.

The NBA Finals have been tied at 1-1, 36 times in NBA history. Out of those 36 times, 33 teams who won Game 3 went on to win the series. With a winning percentage of 83 percent, tonight's game could be the most crucial of the series.

Tony Parker took a brutal shot to the ribs in the fourth quarter of Game 2. Parker fell to the floor seething in pain. Tonight we will have to wait and see if there is any soreness or hangover effect after the shot. After Parker went down the Spurs missed 4 straight free throws and ultimately turned the game over to the Heat.

With the momentum of the series shifting Miami's way, the Heat are poised to take Game 3, setting up an all important Game 4. LeBron James seems to have found his groove again, which is terrible news for the Spurs. When the ace up your sleeve is the greatest player in the world, the odds will always be in your favor.
