The Miami Heat have quite the challenge on their hands, as they are currently facing elimination at the hands of the San Antonio Spurs. While no team has ever come back to win while down 3-1 in the NBA Finals, the Heat seem to believe that they have a chance.
As a general rule of thumb, I don’t like to count out a team that has LeBron James.
LeBron seemed confident that the Heat aren’t done quite yet in his press conference, and it appears as if teammate Chris Bosh shares the belief.
Bosh: “It’s not ending tonight.” Said there’s been no discussion among Big 3 about if it ends tonight. “We’ll be here forever.”

This is a loaded quote. Not only did he say that the series won’t end tonight, he went a step further to try to put down the free agency rumors swirling around the Heat.
It wouldn’t be shocking to see the Heat win tonight, but to see them take the series would be a huge surprise. First, they have to win Game Five, and Bosh seems awfully confident that they will do just that.
