All the hype from Game 2 into Game 3, all the "must-win" talk from both sides, has ended when the Miami Heat beat the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday night.
While Dallas has been resilient, it is no secret that the Heat have been the better basketball team for all of 11.5 quarters up to this point in the series.
Miami hasn't done themselves any favors by giving up leads it shouldn't give up in the first place, but the Mavericks are forced to play Miami's low scoring games and we know that history favors a defensive force in the NBA Finals.
Dallas still holds home court for the next two games, but the Heat have earned the right to play in Miami at least one more time, a luxury they desperately wanted.
Tonight is Game 4, another "must win" by all accounts for Dallas, or they could actually lose the NBA Finals on their home court.
The Miami Heat are firmly in the driver's seat right now and even a loss tonight wouldn't be crippling to them, although they would love to keep the momentum.
Here is a look at the latest news, predictions and buzz on Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
