How Miami Heat Match Up with the San Antonio Spurs in the NBA Finals

The two times the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs faced off against each other this season, both teams weren't at full strength.

The first time—the now infamous "bench game"—Gregg Popovich sent most of his starters back home instead of bringing them along to South Beach to face LeBron James and company.

The second time in late March, Erik Spoelstra kept LeBron and Dwyane Wade on the sideline as Chris Bosh led the Heat to an impressive 88-86 win in San Antonio.

While you could argue that the Heat have the advantage in this potential series after beating a healthy Spurs team on the road without LeBron and Wade, the reality is that we just haven't seen the two teams match up this year.

Both teams have veteran, superstar talent and NBA Finals experience, which means if the Heat and Spurs do meet in the Finals, fans will be in for a potentially epic series.
