Miami Heat owner Micky Arison had a message as he walked to the winning locker room.
LeBron James scored 33 points while playing with the aggression and ferocity that everyone expects of the four-time MVP, leading the Miami Heat to a 109-93 victory over the San Antonio Spurs on Thursday night in Game 4 of the NBA Finals.
Spurs guard Tony Parker will play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals after his availability was in doubt because of a mild right hamstring strain.

Six years later, the San Antonio Spurs still have that winning NBA Finals formula of good defense and a little luck on offense.
Tony Parker banked in a 16-footer with 5.2 seconds left for the last of his 21 points and the San Antonio Spurs stunned the Miami Heat 92-88 in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.
